Seriously? OMG! WTF?

Coming 2 America is better than the original
March 5th, 2021 under Amazon Prime, Arsenio Hall, Eddie Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

Before I watched Coming 2 America, which is out on Amazon Prime now, I watched Coming to America to compare the two. Also to remember what happened in the 1988 movie because I have not seen it in a long time. What was my biggest takeaway? Good things come to wait.

Had Eddie Murphy done the sequel immediately, it would not have been as good. This way, he was able to formulate a story that was fitting. Along with adding a lot of funny people to the sequel while also rehiring a lot of actors from the original.

Seriously, the best part is that so many people like John Amos, James Earl Jones, and Garcelle Beauvais came back for the second round. They are just a few of the many cast members who came back. I am beyond impressed with how many people did both movies. And I am not talking about all the dual roles that Murphy and Arsenio Hall played and played again. Saul has to be at least 100.

Now, let’s talk about the movie that takes place 30 years after the first one. Prince Akeem (Murphy) is still married to Lisa (Shari Headley), and they have three beautiful daughters (KiKi Layne, Bella Murphy, and Akiley Love).

King Jaffe Joffer (Jones) wants his Kingdom passed down to a grandson. When the King finds out that the Prince fathered a son in the Land of Queens, he sends Akeen to bring him back to Zamunda.

But wait, how did Akeem father a son? That will be explained and shown to us.

Back to the search for his son. Akeem and Semmi (Arsenio Hall) go back to Queens and meet up with some old friends who know his son. They tell him where he can find Lavelle Junson (Jermaine Fowler). How will it go when they meet him? Better than when they meet his mother (Leslie Jones) and uncle (Tracy Morgan).

Akeem tells them they have to go back to Zamunda with him so that Lavelle can prepare to be the future King. That is when the movie really starts to get funny!

It might seem like I am not telling you a lot, and I am not. I want you to enjoy the movie as I did. We waited almost 33 years for it, so we deserve to enjoy it without too many spoilers.

I promise you will love this movie just like you did the original. It is Eddie Murphy at his best. When he is at his best, our stomachs suffer. That is because we are laughing so hard with him.

We all need a good laugh these days, and Coming 2 America delivers tenfold. Make a date with Amazon Prime because you are going to want to watch this movie over and over again. Just like you watched Coming to America many, many times.


Jimmy Kimmel Live is doing a Coronaversary episode
March 5th, 2021 under Jimmy Kimmel. [ Comments: none ]

Can you believe it has been almost a year since we started living Groundhog’s Day every day? Well, it has been, and Jimmy Kimmel Live is going to celebrate it on March 11th.

To celebrate Coronaversary, he is bringing back Mayor Pete, who hosted the last show in the JKL studio before they went on a COVID-19 hiatus on March 11, 2020. Since then, the Mayor got promoted to the U.S. Transportation Secretary. At least one person doesn’t wake up to the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

Joel McHale will also be a guest on the episode, and Adam Duritz will be performing.

I wonder if the other late night hosts will do it too. Maybe they should make a fundraiser?


Chrissy Teigen still fits into her Hooters uniforms

Before Chrissy Teigen was a Legend, Mrs. John Legend, was a Hooters girl. Today, she tried on her uniform, and it still fits her. Well, maybe not in the butt area. Butt everywhere else it did. However, if she served wings wearing that, she would make a lot of tips.


Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey was 3 years in the making
March 5th, 2021 under Oprah Winfrey, The Princes of England. [ Comments: none ]

I bet you thought that no one ever says no to Oprah Winfrey, but Meghan Markle did. You see, before the actress became a Duchess, Winfrey asked her for a sitdown interview, but Buckingham Palace would not let her do it. In fact, Markle says that there were people listening to their telephone conversation to make sure that she turned down the offer.

Why did she say yes now? “Well, so many things. That we’re on the other side of a lot of…a lot of life experience that’s happened,” Markle told Oprah. “And also that we have the ability to make our own choices in a way that I couldn’t have said yes to you then. That wasn’t my choice to make. So, as an adult who lived a really independent life to then go into this construct that is…different than I think what people imagine it to be, it’s really liberating to be able to have the right and the privilege in some ways to be able to say yes.”

The rest of their unrestricted, 2-hour chat will air Sunday at 8p on CBS.

Be prepared for Markle to claim to be the victim. She isn’t. I bet you she wears the pants in their marriage, and Harry has to do whatever she says. I feel for him. I am sure he wanted a change, but I don’t think he wanted all of this. Hopefully, his family will take him back with open arms after he gets divorced. We all know they are going to get one eventually.

It would be nice if they could live happily ever after, but that only happens in fairy tales.


Pose is walking its final runway this season
March 5th, 2021 under FX, Ryan Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

Pose creator Steven Canals had some big news to share about his FX drama today on Good Morning America. The good news is that the show will debut its third season on May 2nd. The bad news is that these seven episodes will be the show’s last ones.

“It was a very difficult decision for us to make, but this has been an incredible journey and we have told the story that we wanted to tell the way that we wanted to tell it,” Canals told “GMA. “Although we know you’ll be sad to see the show go, this season will be filled with all of the love and laughter and tears that you have come to expect from the Evangelista family.”

This season will take place in 1994. Pray Tell (Billy Porter) will be having health issues. I have a feeling the series will end with his death from AIDS.

Let’s just hope it is not the death of Porter’s career and someone snatches him up ASAP. Our TV’s need his sparkle. We also need Pose’s sparkle, but that is no longer happening after June 6th.
