The story of Rudy Ray Moore, who created the iconic big screen pimp character Dolemite in the 1970s.



The Playlist - Jason Bailey
In playing a man who was so clearly among his comic ancestors and influences, we see, for the first time in a long time, Murphy’s sheer joy of performance, the thing that made his early work in films like “48 HRS.” and “Beverly Hills Cop” so electrifying.
Consequence of Sound - Sarah Kurchak
A celebration of Rudy Ray Moore, the creative process, and black creativity, Dolemite Is My Name is an absolute joy to watch.
Variety - Owen Gleiberman
A total motherf—kin’ blast. ... You might have to go all the way back to the ’80s to find a Murphy performance driven by this much pleasurable funky verve.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Barry Hertz
Essential to the film’s success is Murphy, clearly having his best time in a long time as Moore, who adopted a flashy pimp-esque persona that would eventually take the blaxploitation landscape by storm.
Screen International - Tim Grierson
An enjoyable star vehicle that provides the beloved comic with one of his most substantial roles.
