Podcast: Dolemite is My Name / Greener Grass – Extra Film
This week on the InSession Film Podcast: Extra Film segment, Ryan and Jay discuss Dolemite is My Name and Greener Grass.
With Ryan returning to the show from is vacation, the guys decide to take a look at two comedies that are available to stream on Netflix and rent on VOD. With Dolemite is My Name, the film sees the return of the Eddie Murphy that audiences have grown to love. With a great supporting cast and solid direction, Dolemite looks to be a contender in the Oscar race but whether the guys think those chances are possible lead to an interesting discussion. They also talked about Dolemite’s influences and the film’s overall message that has sparked the great praise for Murphy and all who is involved.
And in the back half of the episode, the guys reviewed Greener Grass, which lead to one of the most divisive reviews in InSession Film history. The film is a comedy that can work for some and not for others, and that is on full display in this review. Even if you haven’t seen the film, its a great debate to listen to.
