Product Description


Half of the characters in this 1988 John Landis potboiler seem to be played either by Eddie Murphy or costar Arsenio Hall, swaddled in elaborate Rick Baker makeup appliances that render them unrecognizable but also weirdly immobile. As a pampered African prince who journeys incognito to Queens, New York, to find a bride who will love him just for himself, Murphy manages to look smug and naive at the same time. There are enjoyable sequences of Murphy's Prince Akeem applying his lordly manner to his new job in a fast-food emporium, and falling for the boss's spirited daughter (Shari Headley), who teaches him how to party down, American style. But the fish-out-water premise is never fully exploited. Star spotters will have a field day locating Cuba Gooding Jr., Donna Summer, Louie Anderson, Vondie Curtis Hall, E.R.'s Eriq La Salle, and Samuel L. Jackson in their minuscule supporting roles. --David Chute

This guy is another of my favorite actors. supposedly this movie did not do so well at the box office, but Eddie Murphy is really funny in it. It was great to get this movie in good condition and a very reasonable price.

After reading this I hope that amazon will change its 20 words or more Policy. Hi. I tried to just press enter but no, I got to put in 20 words at least. Well here goes !! On a chilly Montréal July afternoon, after a hard day's work I arrived at my home. My girlfriend recently left me with my next door neighbor and took evrything but the kitchen sink, my 46 inch screen and my Samsung Blu Ray. That's when I noticed that Coming to America had arrived. Still crying from the lost of my girlfriend I put in the movie. since then life has changed. I met another next door neighbor who is also a cheerleader for the Montréal football team, she has lots of friends always in my pool in those little bikinis, I got a promotion at work, I won 50 million dollars at the lottery. I started my own company, sold it became a pro surfer let my hair grow moved to a new beach front property, and traveled all over Europe. Gotta go it's time for my Hungarian courses. Funny my teacher, Wivien is always telliing me that she's Hungary. All that from watching Coming to America. Thanks Amazon !

I love this movie. There is nothing I can complain about. This is Eddie Murphy at his Best. This is when Eddie and Arsenio was the BOMB. Every scene makes you laugh. Do you see Samuel Jackson in one of his early roles? Also, ER's Eric LaSalle in his Jeri Curl. This movie is wonderful. I can watch it over and over and over again and laugh at the Soul Glow commercials, because everyone in my area wore a Jerri Curl that looked that nasty. This is a must own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Relaxed Comedy June 14 2004
By J
Coming to America cheerfully pokes fun at everything. There isn't really a meanspirited moment in the movie. A spoiled Afican Prince comes to Queens, NYC to live a normal life & find his true love. Queens for a future king, get it? The humor isn't exactly highbrow but its constant and Arsenio Hall is hilarious.
