This is prop my favorite Eddie Murphy movie. Fun idea that was well executed. The great Samuel L Jackson has a small role in the movie. The Barber scene is the greatest. Overall a pretty funny movie I would highly recommend it.

A charming movie that - to be cliche - makes you think "Why don't they make movies like this anymore?"

This movie still entertains me after all of these years. Sure it is a tad cliche, but it still has a lot of charm and a lot of laughs. If you have never seen this before, you should definitely give it a watch! It is not Eddie Murphy's best movie, but it is still one of his good ones.

Very funny and very great story, hands down one of Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Halls best movies ever

This rarely funny Murphy - at his less spirited - satiric comedy is a definition of a silly hollow flick, even though it'd started to actually pick itself up towards the conclusion. (B-)

A positive, enjoyable romantic comedy without being lame or girly.

Clearly the best comedy ever!

This is one of my favorite Eddie Murphy movies.
Eddie and Arsenio both play several characters and crush it.

The film is effective early on in making Eddie Murphy's character sympathetic despite his background. It perfectly balances an adult sense of humor with scenes of slapstick comedy, consistently delivering some sort of attention grabber. The supporting cast lends itself well to helping Murphy to not be the focal point of everything. Overall a very well-made comedy and movie.

one of the first movies to show Eddie's ability to play more than one character, coming to america is an east romantic comedy to watch, with spats here and there of comedic value.

A movie with strong sentimental value!

An 80s classic curse happy vehicle! I could watch this a trillion times. A film where you memorize the script without trying, if you grew up in the 80s, and what l mean to say by that is...

''Just let ya sooo-ullll gloooww!''

Let it shine through.

This film holds strong nostalgic value for me, I could probably watch it a billion times. One of those films where you unintentionally memorize the script, if you grew up watching it anyway. An 80s comedy classic.

This is a movie I saw quite often on tv as a kid/teenager and what I could recall was pretty patchy. Watching is again made the whole movie make so much more sense, and boy did it make me laugh. Its humour is quite often very subtle and very tongue in cheek. It has many laugh out loud moments, its off the chain and oddly bizarre but it works, in fact it works very well. A novelty plot is quite the fun watch despite the feeling of 'what am i watching' hanging around like a bad smell. Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall obviously play massive parts in this movies success and its a joyful watch. Its probably more funny then most of the comedies I watched in the last year.

An all time classic. One of the best comedies in the history of cinema.
