Coming to America (1988)

An American romantic comedy directed by John Landis, starring Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall and James Earl Jones, with a cameo by Samuel L. Jackson.
An African prince is tired of being pampered and doesn't like the woman he is arranged to marry. The king lets him leave for a little while and he goes to New York City with his assistant. They get a ghetto apartment and menial labor jobs where the prince falls in love with the boss' daughter.
Standard late '80s romantic comedy. The plot was relatively uninteresting and the characters were extremely stereotypical. Video style was clear and the audio was appropriate. There were some interesting things that I must mention. The prince's female servants scored Female Anatomy Points within the first five minutes. I believe the quote was "The royal penis is clean". Also, nobody can drop an "F bomb" like Samuel L. Jackson. Overall, just a regular movie. I rate it o.k.
