Man,lemme tell you. This movie is funny WITHOUT a beer. If you're expecting a high quality Soul Cinema picture, with somewhat decent resolution level & clarity ( i.e. Willie Dynamite, Shaft, etc ) this ain't it. The lighting in this movie is terrible ! LOL !!! The dialogue is muffled, the editing sucks and the acting is incredibly hilarious ( though it wasn't meant to be ). Like some of the other reviews attested, this mug is funny.
Just the first opening sequence alone had my eyes wide open in disbelief as Rudy Ray ( aka Tucker ) makes his entrance into his disco with a purple one piece polyester suit, low cut showing a bunch of spiders chillin' on his chest havin' a meetin, movin' his pelvic area around, dancin' like he's the hottest thing in town. I was rollin'. Then he goes and gets behind the DJ booth and starts playin' some tunes. His nephew Bucky is there with his girlfriend and some friends, and eventually leaves to go outside, when he's pressured by one of his friends to take some angel dust, which he does. His girlfriend sees the effect it has on him and runs back into the disco screamin' and cryin', when Rudy Ray says in a " terribly practiced tone " - " What has happened to Bucky !!!?" LOL !!!!!
Oh my goodness, I could go on and on about the terrible scenes in this movie, it's ridiculous.
This man can cuss so good it makes my side hurt. I mean, you'll laugh at the quality alone, but if you really wanna get hoarse from laughter, get some friends together, y'all take down a couple of beers and watch how easy the laughter rolls out. I guess i'm late into the game with this one since I just saw this movie for the first time, but I've heard Dolemite is alot funnier than this. I gave this movie 2 stars 'cause the writing sucked and the halucinations were prelonged, but besides that, I was pleased at how much this movie made me laugh.
