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

" Date: 9/25/2020 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-Watch Note: With the Coming to America sequel coming out soon, I decided to revisit this movie. This movie has always been my favorite Eddie Murphy movie growing up and I still consider Coming to America to be one of his best movie in my opinion. Coming to America is still a great comedy that has fun memorable characters and plenty of hilarious moments that are still funny. I always like the creative premise that this movie has with a rich prince from anoth"

"First viewing - April 12th I'm not sure I've said so before, but back in the '80s I loved Eddie Murphy. The trouble was though that I was a child and my parents did NOT love him. Therefore they wouldn't take me to see his films, and by the time I was old enough to see them on my own he was making things like The Nutty Professor and Dr. Doolittle which I had zero interest in. So I've spent much of my adult life slowly playing catch-up. This was a blindspot that definitely needed correcting, and "
