Coming to America

The biggest surprise for me was how much I enjoyed watching this, and still found it to be so incredibly funny. Sure, I have fond memories of it, but I wasn’t expecting it to have aged well. But yeah, this is still so oh-so funny, and it was a delight to see Murphy and Hall disguised while playing all those wacky characters (I had completely forgotten about this). Still well worth watching, and possibly Murphy’s best comedy film? (I still have a certain fondness for Trading Places though, and the Trading Places Easter egg in Coming to America was fantastic, and again, came as a surprise to me.)
