Dolemite Is My Name

Dolemite Is My Name ★★★★½

Adam Sandler’s all like yo what’s up I’m a former SNL alum making a resurgence with my hopefully oscar nominated role in Uncut Gems plz love me again and then Eddie Murphy comes out here and just one ups him 😮

Na for real Dolemite is such a fun movie that really encapsulates the blaxploitation movement of the 70s while also adding current critiques of Hollywood and the film critic industry. Love how it discusses the blurring of the line between art and entertainment, and how neither should be considered more worthy of praise than the other if they both come from personal places of passion. All the characters are great and the music is 👌🏼👌🏼

And hey! Body positivity in a period piece?? We love to see it!
