Fifty Shades of Black trailer actually plays parody well


The Wayans can get it right sometimes

We have to thank the Wayans family. If it weren't for them the movie spoofing genre would have completely died with Leslie Nielsen. Now you may be thinking, "Matt, that would be a good thing," but believe it or not there some great parodies out there some of which are from the Wayans. 

Now they've been on a long, long, long streak of mediocrity, but if this trailer for 50 Shades of Black, led by Marlon Wayans, is any indication it could work this time. The trailer's tone is on point and surprisingly close to the actual film. There's the lowbrow jokes to be expected, but the rest seems surprisingly constrained and intelligent in terms of Wayans comedy. 

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm actually looking forward to seeing this one.
