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.


Eddie Murphy is back with Coming 2 America
February 3rd, 2021 under Eddie Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

I love Eddie Murphy movies, but his last few comedies have not been, well, good. However, it looks like his bad streak is over with the sequel to Coming to America.

Today, Amazon released the full trailer for Coming 2 America, and I could not stop laughing while watching it. They say good things come to those who wait. I guess waiting nearly a third of a century was well worth it for this movie. We will find out on March 5th when the film comes out.

Are you going to watch it?


Finally a trailer for Coming 2 America
December 22nd, 2020 under Amazon Prime, Arsenio Hall, Eddie Murphy. [ Comments: 1 ]

I feel like we have been hearing about Coming 2 America for decades. Well, the movie finally became a reality, it was filmed, and now it is getting ready to debut March 5th on Amazon Prime.

Do you know what that means? That means we finally get to watch the trailer. It brilliantly starts off like The Lion King, and then it turns into the sequel we have been waiting 32 years for. About time they released it.

How excited are you to see Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall back to their old hijinx together? And why didn’t anyone tell me Jermaine Fowler is in it? I love him, and I am so happy he got a part in this film.


Coming 2 America is coming 2 Amazon Prime
October 13th, 2020 under Amazon Prime, Arsenio Hall, Coronavirus, Eddie Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

Most movie theaters are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. They don’t even know if and when they will open their doors again. Therefore, Bill & Ted: Face the Music, and Mulan skipped the theaters and opted to stream online. Now, Coming 2 America is doing the same thing.

The long-awaited and anticipated sequel will begin streaming on Amazon Prime, most likely on December 18th, according to Variety. The movie stars Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, Tracy Morgan, and Jermaine Fowler.

I bet if it does well, then Wonder Woman: 1984 and James Bond: No Time to Die will probably skip the big screen too. Would you watch these movies from the comfort of your home, or do you have to see the movies at the movies??


Eddie Murphy talks Pam Grier’s t!tties and shares an epic Rodney Dangerfield story
January 21st, 2020 under Eddie Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

Eddie Murphy shared some interesting stories with W Magazine, and he could not stop saying t!tties during the first question. That is because he told them that Pam Grier’s t!tties were the first ones he saw. Not only that, he saw them over and over and over again in several different movies. Because of that, it made it awkward for him when they worked together on The Adventures of Pluto Nash. He never told her that he saw them, but he has a feeling she knew that he did. Mostly because he could not help but to look at them all wide-eyed.

That was not the only thing we learned about him; he talked about rightfully turning down advice from Rodney Dangerfield. Back in 1980, before Murphy did Saturday Night Live, he was on the lineup with Dangerfield in Fort Lauderdale. They asked who wanted to follow the legendary late comedian, and Murphy was so full of himself that he offered to do it. Not only that, Murphy asked him to watch his set. When it was over, Dangerfield told the teen that the race jokes and vulgarity was not going to work. Two years later, when Murphy, who was on SNL at the time, was in Vegas performing, and Dangerfield ran into him in the restroom. Rodney looked at him and said, “Who knew?” And you wonder why he got no respect?

For some reason, this interview reminds me of the old Eddie that we know and love. Almost enough to make me want to spend money and see him on tour with his act.
