Eddie Murphy is The Box Office King Of Comedy. And in Coming To America, Murphy is also the Prince of Comedy...a very wealthy and pampered African prince who comes to America in search of a bride. Accompanied by his closest companion (Arsenio Hall), Murphy quickly finds a job, new friends, new digs, new enemies and lots of trouble. Keep an eye out for both Murphy and Hall in some unforgettable cameo roles!

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A screenplay that seems to have escaped its doctors before it was entirely well.
Fresh: Murphy has dealt audiences the movie equivalent of a royal flush and he is now clearly Hollywood's reigning king of comedy.
Fresh: The winning combination of Landis and Murphy redeems the very predictable storyline, which is chock-full of snappy one-liners and impressive caricatures by Murphy and Hall.
Fresh: Superb comic timing, a satirical edge, and Murphy's extraordinary gift for mimicry lift it right out of the trough of mediocrity to which it is all but consigned by its utterly predictable storyline.
I love this movie, it was funny without effort. Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall did a great job portraying many of the characters in the movie. The plot was original and had lots of laughs. Coming to America is a great movie and I'm sure you will enjoy it!
