Dolemite Is My Name Movie Synopsis:

Stung by a string of showbiz failures, floundering comedian Rudy Ray Moore (Academy Award nominee Eddie Murphy) has an epiphany that turns him into a word-of-mouth sensation: step onstage as someone else. Borrowing from the street mythology of 1970s Los Angeles, Moore assumes the persona of Dolemite, a pimp with a cane and an arsenal of obscene fables. However, his ambitions exceed selling bootleg records deemed too racy for mainstream radio stations to play. Moore convinces a social justice-minded dramatist (Keegan-Michael Key) to write his alter ego a film, incorporating kung fu, car chases, and Lady Reed (Da’Vine Joy Randolph), an ex-backup singer who becomes his unexpected comedic foil. Despite clashing with his pretentious director, D’Urville Martin (Wesley Snipes), and countless production hurdles at their studio in the dilapidated Dunbar Hotel, Moore’s Dolemite becomes a runaway box office smash and a defining movie of the Blaxploitation era.

Comics and rappers have praised Moore as a pioneering influence over the past few decades, and Dolemite Is My Name is a hilarious celebration of a singular talent who made his own legend. From director Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow, Empire); Emmy and Golden Globe-winning writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Ed Wood, The People vs. O.J. Simpson); and the producing team of Oscar and Golden Globe nominee John Davis (Ferdinand, Joy), Golden Globe nominee John Fox (Joy) and Murphy; the film features an all-star supporting cast — including Mike Epps, Craig Robinson, Tituss Burgess, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Snoop Dogg, Ron Cephas Jones, Barry Shabaka Henley, Tip ‘TI’ Harris, Luenell, Tasha Smith — plus costumes designed by Academy Award winner Ruth E. Carter (Black Panther).

  1. It looks like it could have potential based upon the cast , but I’m still a little skeptical. I will DEFINITELY wait for your review before watching it.

  2. Yes!!! YES!!! YES!!! I am all the way here for this! I love Dolemite. I used to watch the original series many moons ago. I always found him funny and who hasn’t heard “The signified monkey”! I also think Eddie Murphy is the perfect person to do the character.

  3. Another remake? Supa Fly, Shaft… I do like that they are doing a behind the scenes angle. It will probably be funny.

  4. OMG! Amazing cast! Hilarious storyline! Eddie Murphy is perfect for the role of Dolemite! I can’t wait to laugh super hard when I watch, “Dolemite is my Name”!!!

  5. Don’t know about this one??? As a kid who secretly listen to my dad’s record collection of Dolomite, Red Foxx and Richard Pryor. I don’t like the voice he is using for the character!! Looks like a good cast. Since it’s on Netflix I will check it out.

  6. This movie is going to be interesting. I will go see it to see if Eddie Murphy can fill his shoes. It is going to be funny and can’t wait to hear some of his riddles/jokes.
