    I just re-watched Dolemite. Remember Hy Pyke from Hack-O-Lantern?
    He's the mayor!?! I never connected that before.

    24:04 "It says 'Lil' Wayne'(Turn Down for What?)." - Turn Down for What is Lil John, right?

    You might consider doing a Plinkett-Review on 'Pluto Nash' in the time everyone is expecting a Review on StarWars.
    So you could take your time and disect the trilogy in peace or maybe overthrow that idea completly.
    I would actually prefer an in depth Review of Pluto Nash as I have a weird relationship to this movie.

    I watched this the second time and i wasn't really paying full attention (i have a kitten who demands attention). I sneeze and hear "there it is!", i had to go back and watch what he meant (i was suspecting someone sneezed!) and sure enough, i sneezed at the same time as Mike did haha!

    Dave Chappelle's costume from the "Time Haters" sketch was totally Petey's disguise at 16:24
    EDIT: He even repurposed the joke from 3:45 in the same sketch. Come on.

    A cool Dolemite story from Mike Flores (posted on the SubGenius Film Society page)
    "It was 1975 and I went to a grindhouse in Chicago to see Dolemite. Rudy was going to be there and he was. In those days you couldn't get tickets in advance, you waited in line in groups for each upcoming show. I got into line and a Chicago cop walked over to me and motioned for me to walk over to him.
    I did and he told me not to go into the theaters with all those "n's" and in those days nobody said "n word", they spelled it out. I said I was fine and went back into line.
    Rudy was walking up and down the line making jokes at the people in line (" your so fat..., etc) like Don Rickles on steroids. He walked over to me and asked what the cop said. He asked me my name. After I told him he said very loudly, "This is my friend Mike. Ya'll show him a good time". He then told me to meet him in the lobby after the show.
    We became friends and I would interview him for the zine of The Chicago Psychotronic Film Society IT'S ONLY A MOVIE years later. In the interview he praised Eddie Murphy, who is now playing him in DOLEMITE IS MY NAME.
    He was the comedian at my wedding party in Las Vegas, the marriage didn't last but my friendship with him did.
    He lived to see young white people fall in love with his work. He did a concert in Chicago and people were saying his routines back to him. It was a market he never thought he would reach."

  • Akinokaze Haruichiban

    At risk of "That was the joke", when you were saying you didn't know what the staff was meant to be and said it had like a discoball on the end, all I can think is..."It's meant to be a microphone" he even looked like he was using it as such in the battle with the devil you showed earlier in the review.

    Lil Wayne's real name is Dwayne Carter, like his father. He dropped the D because his dad is a deadbeat. So, no relations to Petey

    Crazy to think, Lil Wayne, the rapper famous for being confused for Lil John got his name from Petey Wheatstraw! I always knew there was a deeper reason than him just dropping the D out his name
