Great comedy, loved this one. One of the very few Eddie Murphy films I can watch without getting annoyed. Nice humor!

One of the funniest and easiest films to watch.

6.9 on IMDB? Fucking criminal.

I've often thought that Coming to America was Eddie Murphy's best comedy, and this recent viewing did not disabuse me of that notion. Akeem, the prince who goes to Queens to find one that won't be a willing love slave, is a sweet character, and there's a lot of fun to be had with how vast his wealth and power is, especially in the reactions of ordinary New Yorkers. Really, it didn't need the thing that they apparently thought was hilarious at the time, but that I never cared for, the idea of having Eddie and Arsenio play a bunch of roles. These caricatures don't add very much to the movie and they're only occasionally funny. Movie fans might get a kick from seeing before-they-were-stars Cuba Gooding Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson (and I could swear Alfre Woodard was in a crowd scene, but I haven't found evidence of this anywhere), and the link to Trading Places (is there a Murphyverse?). It's also pretty obvious the people who cast The Lion King were fans of this movie. I have no idea what the proposed sequel will be like, but the original is an uneven charmer, but a charmer nonetheless.

Along with Trading Places, 48 Hrs and Beverly Hills Cop, this film represents when Eddie Murphy was on the top of his game. After that group of films it would begin to go downhill for Mr. Murphy.

This looks like the ultimate cheesy 80's movie.
