      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      In dramatizing Rudy Ray Moore's stranger-than-fiction story, Eddie Murphy makes Dolemite Is My Name just as bold, brash, and ultimately hard to resist as its subject.

      Prahlad Srihari Little White Lies Craig Brewer's film similarly romanticises the dream factory that is cinema. So, it is not just a loving tribute to a counterculture-inspired genre but also to the dreamers whose determination and desire far outweighed their skills and knowledge. Rated: 3.5/5 Jul 24, 2020 Full Review Tim Grierson Screen International Murphy's ebullient co-star underlines one of Dolemite Is My Name's subtler points: Sometimes, betting on yourself inspires others to believe in themselves, too. Dec 19, 2019 Full Review Chris Klimek NPR Certainly the blue-chip cast that has shown up to support Murphy in the buoyant-but-superficial Netflix biopic Dolemite Is My Name is its own tribute to Moore's intersectional significance... Dec 19, 2019 Full Review Vadim Rizov Filmmaker Magazine This is a pleasant enough return to the public eye... Dec 5, 2022 Full Review Victor Pineyro Seventh Art Studio Eddie Murphy with the comeback. His portrayal of rap/comedy legend, "Dolemite", is one for the books. A great homage to blaxploitation. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 8/10 Jul 7, 2022 Full Review Cole Smithey ColeSmithey.com If only all biopics were half this much fun. Kicks.

Great theme..great cast & definitely great laughs! 2 👍's Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/16/19 Full Review Marcella I love this movie...Eddie Murphy was amazing! He captured the true essence of who Rudy Ray Moore was and how he made himself a living legend. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/15/19 Full Review dennis t great performance by the entirethe cast. great story line Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/15/19 Full Review Robert B This is Eddie Murphy the star. Full of energy, living loud, brash and funny as f___. This character is perfect for him to release his raw, kinetic, comedic genius on. And he can act. We feel for this guy, rooting him on. Some great casting also. Da'Vine Jay Randolph is a standout. But lot more great roles here. But, basically this is the confident, cocksure Eddie Murphy as star we have not seen in a long time. He owns every shot he is in. Nice to see him back! Maybe some stand-up soon? Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/14/19 Full Review Read all reviews
