03.12.21Internet This is a tough one. I really liked Murphy's Dolemite movie... I'm generally a fan of Craig Brewer... it's great the see the band back together and all that... but it falls into sequel trope after trope after trope. Really the movie only exists as a reminder that these jokes were pretty funny 30 years ago. Everybody wants to see more of the barbershop, more of Sexual Chocolate, more of McDowell's. More Arsenio and Eddie cutting each other up, but the script only serves to connect those dots. And seeing characters again doing the same material isn't exactly the same as seeing more of the characters. It's all very safe and PG-13. Aside from a line or two by the barbershop guys, the only material I really liked was Wesley Snipes having fun and the Prince song. I wish it was better.
