5.0 out of 5 stars Raw Murphy, 19 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Raw [DVD] [1987] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Following on from Delirious, and successful films such as 48 Hours and Trading Places, Murphy returns to the stage to give us another dose of sex, coarse language, social satire and laughs.

As the title suggests, this isn't quite as accessible as Delirious, and is probably a little more offensive and cruder, but it's still funny.

Once again he rolls out the impersonations - Mr. T and Michael Jackson appear again - this time looking to beat him up for his jokes about them on Delirious, and he adds Bill Cosby chastising him for cursing and Richard Pryor as well - a not so tongue in cheek homage of two comedy legends who were an influence on him.

He discusses the dangers of AIDS in the 80's, women's viewpoints (in a decidedly camp voice - but he's having a ball out there and the ladies seem to agree with him from the roars of the audience), the reasons not to get married such as divorce, and talks about Italian/African American relations after seeing Rocky.

He also gives us another dose of his father, and a childhood memory of his mother making a burger for him - both hilarious stories.

Murphy touches a lot of things at home base, as Pryor and Cosby did before him, and it's a shame he decided to continue acting to some point - though he gave us many great films afterwards - and he left while he was on top.

Watch Delirious first, then if you liked that, you should enjoy Raw.

Viva la Murphy!
