Neither did I, it makes no difference, just think: low budget Shaft. And it makes it even funnier when you see him basically turn into snoop dog, and realise that’s the guy who snoop modelled himself on!I have no idea who Dolemite is, is it still a decent watch for those not in the know?
What makes it even better is that they show clips from the real movie with Rudy Ray Moore. Someone has to re-release that movie.
FYI Rudy Ray's Dolemite is on Amazon Prime UK if you're curious in checking it out.I watched this one last night. It's quite fun, and it's great to see Eddie Murphy back on form doing what he does best. It's also the sweariest movie I've seen in a long time, it's amazing that it's only a 15 cert. Back in the day this would have easily been an 18.
I had no idea who the real Rudy Ray was. Netflix should really pick up his movies for curiosity value, although they look absolutely terrible.
Definitely not Oscar worthy...except perhaps Wesley Snipes in a supporting role. Murphy's character is not THAT deep or enough of a departure for him as an actor. He worked harder in Bowfinger. It's just a good film...Watched this last night. Pretty decent for Netflix. Murphy on top form.
Wasn't exactly rolling around with laughter (the Instant Reply bit did make me LOL though) but it was fairly amusing for the most part.
I think Oscar talk is comical though. Eddie is great but would the academy really give it to someone with 50% of their lines containing the words M.F
