This classic 1988 romantic comedy stars Eddie Murphy in the main role as Akeem Joffer, the prince of the made-up land of Zamunda. Murphy also takes on numerous other roles in the film; look out for the barbershop scenes, where he plays at least two other characters. The movie focuses on Akeem’s quest to find a bride in United States, as all the women in Zamunda worship the ground he walks on, which (surprise, surprise) he hates as he would rather find a woman who challenges him. He meets his match in the beautiful Lisa (Shari Headley) but has an uphill task making her fall in love with him, as 1) he has been pretending to be poor and 2) she already has a boyfriend.
