Dolemite Is My Name | Official Trailer | Netflix


It’s showtime, y’all. You love him and I love him. Put your hands together. Dolemite is my name! Dolemite. Auntie, I was thinking
about putting out -a comedy record.
-Comedy? You been a singer,
a Shake dancer… It’s real hard to break in. I’ll do whatever it takes
to get in. I come up
with a new character. Dolemite is my name, and fuckin’ up motherfuckers
is my game. What you do to your hair?
You look like a pimp. It’s all pretend.
I just created a character. -You a trip.
-Pull on that. -That’s a wig.
-A wig, that’s right. Whatever it takes,
I’m ready to do it. I got to be totally outrageous. It’s filthy. You’ve got a product here
that you can’t sell or promote. All my life
people been telling me no. Rudy, sometimes our dreams
just don’t come true. A man slam a door in my face,
I just find another door. I want the world
to know I exist. This ain’t funny. And it ain’t no brothers
in it either. If I get up in that light
with my own movie, I could be everywhere
all at once. Let’s bring Dolemite
to the screen. The actors we hire, you’re a bit doughier
than them. Doughier? That’s D’Urville Martin. I’m offering you a role
in my new motion picture. You think you can just
walk up here and hire me? -No.
-What if we let you direct? In storytelling, it’s always
best to write what you know. Ain’t nothing to talk about
in my personal life. I deal with the nightlife.
Club owners and mobsters, lots of pimps and kung fu. -Do you know karate?
-No, but I’m a fast learner. I can learn
how to chop me a mother– Action. -Dolemite, give it to me.
-Put your weight on it. Pretending like
he could be a sex machine. What planet is this cat on? -Damn!
-This thing flops, you’re working for free
the rest of your life. I’m so grateful
for what you did for me, ’cause I never seen nobody
that looks like me… -Oh, yeah!
-…up there on that big screen. God damn, Dolemite. -Cut.
-Was it as good as Shaft?

  1. This is a ripoff of a much better film by Mario Van Peebles called
    Baadasssss! A film about Mario's father Melvin making the classic film "Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song."

  2. Omg! Just a couple months ago I was like WHERETF has Eddie Murphy been? This is an amazing return to form even if it's only one movie. Looks so good! Miss that guy.

  3. I watched Dolemite and that's a great movie Eddie murphy and the entire cast knocked this on out the park. Much respect

  4. I laughed so hard watching this movie and broke down to tears at the cinema scene. Don’t ever give up on your dream because someone else is insecure. 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

  5. This has got to be the most inspirational movie I’ve ever watched. This guy had no business being in the movie business as an actor & his answer was “why not”. No, only meant ‘maybe’ & ‘later’ to him. He & this movie is great!!!

  6. Surprisingly good👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿

    Just finish watching this film on Netflix. Those fights scenes were hilarious 😂 😂😂😂🤣. Lol!!! Lol!!!!

    Everybody did such a good job acting on this film. So much history was involved in this project.

    Dolomite was intelligent and extremely ambitious . He simply didn’t take no for an answer and stay hustling to the end .

    Didn’t know he built his own filming studio and the way he did was so creative.

    I was not going to watch this film because I didn’t think I would like it. Glad I did because I was seriously wrong.

  7. eddie murphy is not strong enough in image and even in voice to be playing dolimite..(rudy ray moore) aka dolimite played a very strong, serious and dominate roll ……eddie murphy has the image of non-sense funny, dress up in costume type of image…this character is out of eddies league. i tried to see some resemblance of dolimite with eddies acting but, it just made me wanna turn it off..and i went to watch the original

  8. My boy eddie came back and made a hit smh yal take notes he still got it my alasays fav comedian number one and yes Bernie would have been in this I think if he was still alive . He got a all star.cAst I just seen a actor ain’t seen since the movie life in this .

  9. I actually cried when they were in the car thinking nobody was gonna show for the opening. I was weeping my eyes out..

  10. Did anyone else thought Paul Giamatti was in this?? I was reading comments while the video was playing and i swear i heard him! Lol

  11. Eddie Murphy was fantastic in this but I turned it off after getting tired at all the underhanded slights directed towards white people.

  12. Eddie Murphy did a GREAT job showcasing the life of Rudy Ray Moore!!!
    Wish Rudy Ray Moore was here to see his life portrayed in such an EXCELLENT way!!!!!!

  13. Eddie Murphy's style of comedy died in the eighties.This movie is like a drunk acquaintance that wont go home after the parties over.

  14. I'm not even a fan of Dolemite but the way the movie portrayed him, he was inspiring. Didn't take no for an answer. Plus, I could appreciate the casting. This movie is definitely a new favorite.

  15. I'm an hour and a half into this movie. I fell asleep twice and chuckled once. I guess I fell asleep on the funny parts because so far their respective none! It's so disappointing!

  16. This movie was amazing. Who knew a movie about someone who was funny could be extremely serious & funny. Great job by all.

  17. The 1.6k 👎🏾are lames.
    This is Eddie Murphy’s best work to date.
    I love every aspect of this body of work. It has the heart and hunger of someone trying to make it big and not a seasoned veteran.
    Mr. Murphy “ we the people “ love ya 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾 don’t you dare stop 🖤🖤🖤

  18. This movie should of debuted on theaters, Netflix is really upping their game. The Irishman, DeNiro, Pacino, and pessi. They’re movies keep getting better.

  19. This movie was great. I love it when Eddie makes movies that he truly wants to make.

    Can't wait to see Eddie do stand up again.

  20. Go see this movie…. Eddie Murphy was amazing and Wesley Snipes was unexpectedly hilarious!! "I'll show you white man"😂😂😂 Oscar buzz is real even tho Joaquin will probably walk away with it. ✊🏾✊🏾👌🏾

  21. This movie is a classic; no debating, a clear & cut classic. Eddie Murphy is the GOAT.. phenomenal job done on this, man, everything was just perfect for what this movie is about; Dolemite!

    The King is back, jack; can you dig it? If not, hop on the good foot to get with it.

  22. Man! That movie was great! I used to listen to Eddie's records like 35 years ago. It was like an old friend came BACK. Good stuff!

  23. Anyone wanna watch the old Dolemite its available to watch on Tibi Tv for free along with more of Rudy Ray Moore's movies

  24. saw it yesterday! What a great movie! funny, emotional… and funny again! thank you Eddie, for still making us laugh! 😉

  25. Started watching it the other night and can honestly say it's the biggest pile of shite I've seen in months. If Netflix don't up their game I will be cancelling my sub. Sick of seeing stuff with fake ratings and reviews.

  26. There is a scene in this movie showing Bobby Rush singing "I Ain't Studdin Ya". This biopic is set in the 70's. My research reveals that Bobby Rush's song was released in 1991. Before finding out about it being released in 91, for SOME reason, I felt this song was released way before then…idk🤷🏾‍♀️

  27. what is all the buzz and Oscar possible about with this movie,all it is is Eddie Murphy saying motherfucker about 500 hundred times and the supporting cast didn't ad nothing to the movie,scale of 1 to 10? give it a week 5 period,lets see how bad coming to America 2 will be? zero! another pointless movie ugh

  28. 👍🏽🥰I just got through watching this movie and it was really good, my stepdad used to play his Dolemite eight tracks in the car back in the days!!!🥰👍🏽
