Coming to (2) America, and also Eddie Murphy.

Back in the 80’s Eddie Murphy was “a thing”, everyone knew his Gumby and Mr. Robinson’s Neighborhood from SNL, and he had started a solid movie career with 48 Hours, Trading Places and Beverly Hills Cop. He had also stepped into music with Party All The Time, starring Eddie and Rick James. (and more recently My Name Is Dolomite! Check out that show HERE!) But then, he teamed up with Arsenio Hall, who was rising to the top of his game also, hosting The Arsenio Hall Show which ran from ’89-’94, and also voicing Winston Zeddmore on the Real Ghostbusters! (Remember that?!)

The result of that sweet, sweet paring of “guys who like to play dress up” was Coming To America, the heartwarming rom-com(?) of Prince Akeem and his search for true love in Queens. It was a hit, and grossed over $288M worldwide, so the sequel Coming 2 America (see what they did?) was no surprise. In this Amazon Original Prince Akeem is back on the trail in Queens, but this time looking for the son he did not know he had!
