Goofs

About 15 minutes or so into the film, as Dolemite is being chased by the Sheriff (because he got caught in bed with said Sheriff's wife), you can see the Hollywood sign as they drive through the upper roads of Griffith Park... and then they talk about how they have to get moving out to California.

Jimmy: I'd suck the poison, Dolemite!
Dolemite: Well, Bo! What if a snake were to bite me on my ass?

Mr Moore and his hush puppies!
8 December 2003 | by (home of 2000 Olympics) – See all my reviews

Who said sequels suck? Not Rudy Ray Moore who IS the human tornado! You better hope you never meet Dolemite just before he drops one of his ass kickin', head beatin' rap soliloquay's, as this would warrant a reversed film jump onto a rooftop with a sloppy slap to the mouth, while his topless beauties sit in the background laughing it up in what must be the (intentionally) funniest Blacksploitation film ever (yes funnier than the original Dolemite film!)

You will not only laugh at the fight scenes, but the dialogue is hilarious! Forget competent filmmaking as that adds for all the enjoyment!. All serious expectations should be left at the front door when watching this.

A true gem that will never be recreated except in the music video's of Snoop dogg. (and thats a good thing!)
