James (Schaffrillas)’s review published on Letterboxd:
An absolute blast. I had inexplicably never heard of Rudy Ray Moore or Dolemite before watching this, but I kinda want to check out everything he's ever done now. This movie is just a burst of fun and energy anchored by great performances all around, with Eddie Murphy stealing the show in every scene. Plus, as an Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt fan, Titus Burgess is always a plus.
I got tons of Disaster Artist vibes from this, but I think this film handles the whole "movie about making another wacky movie" thing way better. It's not especially deep, but it's a feel-good ride that's sure to inspire the artist in all of us.
(Side note, on the Wikipedia page for this movie, they use a picture of Eddie Murphy from the Shrek Forever After premiere and that made me happy)
