Dolemite Is My Name kicks off the Eddie Murphy renaissance that’s been a very long time coming. And this comic biopic is a blast from start to finish. – Sara Stewart, NY Post
Eddie Murphy and Wesley Snipes shine in this biopic from the director of Hustle & Flow and the writers of Ed Wood, The People Vs. Larry Flynt and Man on the Moon! In 1970s LA, struggling comedian Rudy Ray Moore (Murphy) hits it big with his raunchy alter ego, Dolemite, then risks it all to take his act to the big screen. Heartfelt, raunchy and irreverent, this acclaimed comedy/drama costars Keegan-Michael Key (of TV’s Key & Peele), Craig Robinson (TV’s The Office) and Mike Epps (The Hangover).
