Marlon Wayans Done with Parody Movies


After getting rich on parody films actor Marlon Wayans is done...

The Don't Be a Menace While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood star says it's just too easy to find parody humor online.

Marlon tell The AJC
“It’s closing a chapter. I’m done. I don’t think the audience understands or appreciates this type of parody anymore. On the Internet, it’s parody all the time, a certain type of parody. People can just go on YouTube. For me, I just got to go to other things. Parody is the hardest genre to work.”
Marlon's last parody film 'Fifty Shades of Black' a spoof of the film 'Fifty Shades of Grey' grossed the lowest of all his parody films pulling just $11 million, while his older parody flicks like the Scary Movies series have pulled in over $451 million.

He should've kept doing parodies with his brothers writing, and producing. He's just not that funny without them.

what makes him thing he will get hired to do anything else. maybe he thinks his brothers will hire him. Waynes are not funny alone. They need a pack of them to be funny. I have not seen the girls in a while. Kim and Shawn.

His issue is he has to realize Hollywood will pigeonhole you to a type of role or character until they squeeze every dollar out of your name and your reputation is worthless. It's happened to better actors. I remember his role in Requiem for a Dream and he was alright. He should have taken on more bit parts in different types of movies besides instead of just mainly comedy. It's going to be hard getting out of the hole he has dug for himself.

Am I the only one that doesn't find this dude funny? Like he's so corny to me. I have never paid to see a Marlon Wayans film and never would.

Me neither. I always thought Shawn Wayans was good looking enough to be a leading actor but that's just me.

Marlon Wayans is terrible.

The Wayans brothers well overachieved with their toilet humor brand of comedy - very forced and contrived. Wouldn't be a bad thing if this was the last we heard from the whole bunch of them.

I agree 1:55. Damon and Keenan are the true talent in that family. Hollywood Shuffle & I'm Gonna Git You Sucka are up there with Coming to America & Harlem Nights in terms of funny.

Don't be a Menace was funny as hell too, but that's it from Shawn & Marlon.

Hollywood Shuffle was Robert Townsend

i always thought marlon was the funniest of the bunch. but overall that whole family is corny and too many inside jokes that for some reason they think will make great films. and the fact hollywood keeps greenlighting their crap says a lot. they never support real black talent just coonery.
