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.
