Movie Info

Charles Lane directed Andy Breckman's script, based on an old "Saturday Night Live" sketch of Breckman's that featured Eddie Murphy. Comic Lenny Henry takes Murphy's place in True Identity as a black man forced to don white face in order to save his life. Henry plays Miles Pope, an agreeable British actor whose luck sours when he finds out that businessman Leland Carver (Frank Langella) is actually a notorious underworld mobster. Carver now wants to rub Miles out and the only way that Miles can

Audience Reviews for True Identity

Lenny Henry whited up for this odd little comedy! Was quite funny at the time but he didn't break America as planned!
A silly film but worth a watch if you?re not too busy!
