We gave it a C-

In this witless farce, a financially strapped college student participates in an experiment that dramatically heightens his senses. Confronted with smells he can’t abide, noises he can’t handle, and tastes he can’t get enough of, Marlon Wayans spends the film contorting his face with rubbery abandon. The setups in Senseless are so pedestrian that, mostly, we’re just watching a bland jester pantomime sensory overload.
