Episode Guide

Coming to America

This modern-day fairy tale sees Eddie Murphy cast as a wealthy and pampered African prince who heads to America in search of a bride.

He and his friend Semmi (Arsenio Hall) arrive in Queens, New York City, because, according to Akeem: 'What better place to find a queen than the city of Queens?' The prince quickly finds a job, new friends, new digs, new enemies, and more trouble than he ever bargained for.

Under John Landis' assured direction, Murphy turns in a star performance (alongside several brilliant cameos) that is disciplined and, most importantly, very, very funny.
