A great blend of royal comedy film dependent on rom-com and royal monarchy and drama. The film uncovered the custom and custom of the old world ZAMUNDA with the exotic obstruction of new America.

LIKE FATHER LIKE SON. 

The character Eddie Murphy depicted as a Prince Akeem who is quiet and illustrious mitigates the film with a satire surface alongside the turmoil of discovering his jerk child Lavelle depicted by Jermaine Fowler.
