Eddie Murphy is back and in one of his best roles in years. Dolemite is My Name could be one of the best comedies of the year and it arrives tomorrow, Friday, the 25th of October! You better make sure you know what time Dolemite is My Name is available to stream from, as you won’t want to miss it.

Dolemite is My Name is an upcoming Netflix Original biographical comedy written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski. Directed by Craig Brewer (Black Snake Moan), the Original is Eddie Murphy’s first R-rated film since 1999 and has already been praised as his comeback performance.

Early response from critics

It’s safe to say, that the 21st century hasn’t been kind to Eddie Murphy. Other than his roles as Donkey in the ever loved Shrek franchise, Eddie Murphy has been in plenty of films that have flopped hard.

Early reviews from critics suggest this is the best film Eddie Murphy has starred in for years. At the time of writing Dolemite is My Name has the following ratings:

  • Rotten Tomatoes – 98% – 122 Reviews
  • Metacritic – 76/100 – 35 Reviews
  • IMDb – 6.9/10 – 485 User Ratings

We’d suggest ignoring the IMDb user rating this early. IMDb users are infamous for leaving poor star ratings, without context, before titles have been released. Nearly all of the users that left a written review, fifteen at the time of writing, were overwhelmingly positive about Dolemite is My Name.

Are you excited for the release of Dolemite is My Name?
