8.3

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.

6.0

It feels at times like a Tracy Jordan spoof of a movie, and not always for the better. But that doesn?t stop Dolemite from being funny, or from giving Murphy room to do the things he likes to do.

7.0

Unfolding like a slaphappy cross between 'Baadasssss!' and 'Bowfinger', 'Dolemite Is My Name' may not be quite as spirited or hilarious as any of its most obvious reference points, but its big-hearted buoyancy keeps it afloat, and the movie doesn?t slow down long enough for you to really care that it?s following a timeless formula.
