Terrible, but wonderfully watchable. - Coming to America review by RS

Spoiler Alert
08/10/2018

This a bizarre film. Terrible, but wonderfully watchable. It just goes to prove that formula works. With almost an entire black cast this was the Black Panther of it's day. Eddie Murphy playing a grumpy old Jewish man in a barber shop is worth the ticket price alone.

I watched it to the end )
