”Coming to America” is a blockbuster romantic comedy film directed by John Landi, based on a story originally created by veteran actor Eddie Murphy, who played the lead role.
In the original movie, Eddie Murphy plays Akeem Joffer, a crown prince of a wealthy African nation of Zamunda, who grows weary of his pampered lifestyle on his twenty-first birthday.
When his parents, King Jaffe and Queen Aeoleon, present him with an arranged bride-to-be, Akeem takes action and in his quest for an independent woman, who loves him for himself and not his social status, Akeem and his best friend/personal aide, Semmi, travel to the New York City borough of Queens. They rent a squalid tenement in the neighborhood of Long Island City under the guise of poor foreign students beginning their search for Akeem’s bride.
The film ended in the lines of Prince meets Princess and they live happily ever after.
