During filming, the crew was almost struck by a car whose driver had fallen asleep.[1]


To promote the film, the Knutsson brothers appeared naked at the Cannes Film Festival, after which they were arrested.[2]


Naken received negative reviews in Sweden.[3] Jens Peterson of Aftonbladet called it a poor copy of Groundhog Day that is not even "so bad it's good".[4]


In 2017, Netflix released an English-language, American remake starring Marlon Wayans and Regina Hall. Michael Tiddes directed the movie.[5] Shooting took place in Charleston, South Carolina.[6]
