Dolemite Is My Name ★★★★

Eddie Murphy is great, giving a layered and dynamic performance, in a movie that, while at times formulaic, works its charm over the audience. The biggest flaw in the film is that it never truly breaks out of the biopic mold, but the films more predictable plot points are carried by Murphy’s comeback performance. Overall, a raunchy and hilarious good time, and a definite recommend for those who enjoyed films like The Disaster Artist and Ed Wood.
