However, back in the 80's, he was really a superstar and his movies were highly successful. For example, this movie was a huge success at the box-office and it is considered as one of his classics. So, with this in mind, I had some rathe... read more

This is an African American CLASSIC. An exceptionally well made film. Everybody loves it but the critics. It could be that they have a hard time seeing anybody depict Africans as Royalty anywhere, the starving Ethiopian image is better suited to their taste, or better yet, the African American slave or criminal even. Get over it, this is a Great Romance/Dramedy

Back in the late eighteis this is the sort of film we expected from Eddie Murphy. A classy comedic romp through the streets of America. If he wasn't playing a sex crazed maniac or lovable police detective, he was playing a roguish prince hell bent on learning the customs of a strange new country whilst looking for a respectable wife.

These are the films that made Eddie Murphy famou... read more

The Bad Movie's ... A Guilty Pleasure (15 movies items)

" the opening of that bad film as some memorable scenes... the stunning body of Garcelle Beauvais (one of the girl in the royal bath) who's washing the royal prince, a spectacular show of some tribal dancers and a princess barking like a dog to please her prince (that's good stuffs). that's a classic Eddie Murphy's movie and even if the main story is really crazy it's fun to watch... that's a real guilty pleasure movie for me.
