      Dotty & Soul

      2022 1 hr. 28 min. Comedy TRAILER for Dotty & Soul: Trailer 1 List
      40% 5 Reviews Tomatometer 75% Fewer than 50 Ratings Audience Score Hot-shot entrepreneur Ethan Cox appears poised to sell his self-driving car company and make his investors filthy rich. But when his problematic Halloween costume gets tweeted, the ensuing social media firestorm nearly ends Ethan's career. Desperate to figure out a way forward, Ethan hatches a plan: he will hire 71-year-old snack cart vendor, Dotty, to pose as his company's figurehead, with Ethan still managing from behind the wings. But when Dotty decides to no longer play the straw man, and starts expressing opinions of her own, everything changes. A throwback comedy thematically reminiscent of TRADING PLACES, but firmly entrenched within the social media world of today, DOTTY & SOUL is a hilarious examination of authenticity, and how far any of us will go in our quest to become who we were always meant to be.

      Sherry M This was a deep subject with a lighthearted view. I think it filled the purpose of the director to entertain while addressing a hard topic. I loved the characters. This proves everything doesn't have to be gloom and doom to make a point. Happy ending give hope and boy do we need hope!

      Josh Bell Crooked Marquee There's so much trainwreck potential in writer/director/star Adam Saunders' debut feature that it's almost disappointing how dull and treacly it turns out to be. Rated: C May 23, 2023 Full Review Armond White National Review This new political reality allows Uggams to translate her own personal career wisdom and frustration, giving Dotty & Soul more gravity than Saunders probably intended. May 20, 2023 Full Review Julian Roman MovieWeb Dotty & Soul has heart and merit but broadcasts its intentions like an afterschool special. Thinly plotted characters spend the entire film proselytizing. It's loaded with humorous zingers but lacks substantive exposition. Rated: 2.5/5 May 19, 2023 Full Review Avi Offer NYC Movie Guru Unfunny, witless and dull despite Leslie Uggams' charismatic and lively performance. May 16, 2023 Full Review Brittany Witherspoon Screen Rant It’s clichéd and predictable, but Dotty & Soul is sincere in showing how people can learn from past mistakes when given time to put in the work. Rated: 3/5 Apr 28, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
