“Coming 2 America”: Film Review Podcast

Posted: March 13th, 2021 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | 2 Comments »

There are oh so many things in our lives, especially in these strange times, that are absolutely unnecessary, provide little to no nutritional value of any sort, but which bring a smile, grant us a moment or two of escape, and which we therefore simply savor.

Like the frivolous remake that is “Coming 2 America.”

Prince Akeem (Eddie Murphy) and his runnin’ podner Semmi (Arsenio Hall) have to travel again from their home country of Zamunda to NYC.

For reasons that I shall not explain. Because, hey, I wouldn’t want to spoil it for you.

As if that matters in this singing, dancing, sometimes snarky, sometimes too sweet piffle of a flick.

This movie is of no consequence whatsoever. But it made me smile. I’m glad I streamed it on Netflix.

    Great to hear your voice and review. I might even watch it–but this from a curmudgeon?
