Coming to America
Comedy • R • 1988 • 1 hr 57 min
Eddie Murphys best in my opinion. Humor is within every frame of this film. The premise is unique & (very quietly) critical of US lifestyle
This movie is non stop laughs. Murphy at the height of his powers.
One of Murphy’s best films and one of the funniest classic romcom movies with romance & heart, the whole cast is stellar with non stop humor
love this film, so so funny, amazing acting, such a good plot, don’t have a bad thing to say
great characters,dialogue,jokes, original story,plot, it’s just good it’s a classic Eddie Murphys best work and I watch it every year.
Great romantic comedy (hate that genre usually)
Great movie. Quite funny with a good plot.
A classic - the juxtaposition of cultures in comedy form.
Classic Eddy Murphy playing 20 characters. Holds up remarkably well for a comedy from the 80s
Eddie Murphy at his best! Comedy and story both hold up. High rewatchabilty.
An African prince decides it’s time for him to find a princess... and his mission leads him and his most loyal friend to Queens, New York. In disguise as an impoverished immigrant, the pampered prince quickly finds himself a new job, new friends, new digs, new enemies and lots of trouble.
Prince Akeem Joffer is set to become King of Zamunda when he discovers he has a son he never knew about in America – a street savvy Queens native named Lavelle. Honoring his royal father's dying wish to groom this son as the crown prince, Akeem and Semmi set off to America once again.
