Dolemite Is My Name ★★★★

TIFF19 Film #9:

"Dolemite Is My Name" is what I hoped it would be, a career comeback for Eddie Murphy. Murphy is beyond great in this movie, he's hilarious but also nails the humanity of this larger than life figure. This is overall just a fun, occasionally hilarious and consistently entertaining movie with some heart and a strong supporting cast particularly a great Wesley Snipes. It definitely could've been shorter and it might take a little while to get going, but you should definitely check this out when it hits Netflix.
