Movie poster image for "COMING TO AMERICA"


Eddie Murphy stars as a pampered African prince Akeem, who rebels against an arranged marriage and heads to America to find a new bride. Joined by his trusty sidekick (Arsenio Hall), the prince attempts to blend into American life, plunges into a job at a fast-food chain -- and romance with the boss's daughter. Thanks to Oscar-nominated makeup wizardry, Murphy and Hall play a range of colorful characters and cameos in this John Landis laugh-out-loud, pointed comedy.
