Dolemite Is My Name

Dolemite Is My Name ★★★★

A little more conventional than I would have liked, with Eddie's Rudy not really facing any major dramatic hurdles that resonate as strongly as the ones in ED WOOD, but this is a movie where Murphy as Rudy Ray Moore walks by a 2,000 MANIACS poster while going to negotiate a distribution deal at Dimension Films who tells him "We do two things: Hillbilly Pictures and Blaxploitation"

So yea, I had a grin on my face the entire time.

Never thought I'd see Murphy make jokes about CORNBREAD, EARL AND ME in a scene set in the offices of AIP.
