Overview
Eddie Murphy is The Box Office King Of Comedy. And in Coming To America, Murphy is also the prince of comedy — a very wealthy and pampered African prince who comes to America in search of a bride. Accompanied by his closest companion (Arsenio Hall), Murphy quickly finds a job, new friends, new digs, new enemies — and lots of trouble. Keep an eye out for both Murphy and Hall in some unforgettable cameo roles!
