"Dolemite Is My Name"

Movie Transcript

This movie is written by Scott Alexander & Larry Karaszewski. Craig Brewer directs.



Stung by a string of showbiz failures, floundering comedian Rudy Ray Moore has an epiphany. Step onstage as someone else. The result turns him into a word-of-mouth sensation.

Borrowing from the street mythology of 1970s Los Angeles, Moore assumes the persona of Dolemite. He's a pimp with a cane and an arsenal of obscene fables. However, his ambitions exceed selling bootleg records deemed too racy for mainstream radio stations to play.

'Blaxploitation' Awesomeness

Moore convinces a social justice-minded dramatist to write his alter ego a film. Kung fu, car chases, and Lady Reed, an ex-backup singer who becomes his unexpected comedic foil. His film, has it all.

Despite clashing with his pretentious director, D’Urville Martin, Moore’s Dolemite becomes a runaway box office smash and a defining movie of the Blaxploitation era.

Original Release Date:

October 25, 2019 on Netflix and select theatres.
