DVD Review: Coming to America

Wikipedia “Coming to America is a 1988 comedy film directed by John Landis. The screenplay was written by David Sheffield and Barry W. Blaustein based on a story originally created by Art Buchwald. The film stars Eddie Murphy, who plays an African prince who comes to the United States in hopes of finding a woman he can marry.”

I love this movie! I haven’t seen it so long! But my friend on Facebook kept saying it was on cable and she was practically watching it everyday so I finally DVR’ed it so I could see it again since I haven’t saw it in years. So I saw it one day when Liz was in school.

I first loved in the beginning when the prince gets up to start his day and they practically wipes his ass for him and he was not happy lol! Basically bathe him, dress him, brush his teeth etc…

I love how Cleo McDowell owns a McDowells restaurant that is attempt at copy McDonalds. What irritates me is the chicks dad is happy that they defend his restaurant when a robber comes and then makes me serve drinks at his party like he is shit. I think her sister is a slut too lol! I love Arsenio Hall in it. When the King comes and going to “punish” him with being bathed and such lol at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. Plus before that, he was told by Eddie Murphys character to fix up the place and ends up getting a jacuzzi inside of the room and making it look like a bachelor pad, he also tells the sister that he is the prince and Eddie Murphys character is the servant lolol! Love it!

I also love the fact that there was a band in the movie called Sexual Chocolate lol! I am still laughing about that lol! In the movie both Eddie and Arsenio play multiple characters, such as the band or the men in the barber shop.

I miss Eddie Murphy movies. Hell, I miss the 80’s and 90’s. I was looking up Eddie Murphy on Wikipedia and forgot about his role in Beverly Hills Cop series. Im thinking I need to watch it again.
