Coming to America is one of those movies that will always be a classic that I can sit down and watch at any time. As a kid watching this movie you just enjoy it for its funny nature and pride in being African. As an adult I still appreciate the movie a lot even though a lot of the movie misses the mark in being an actual portrayal of an African coming to America. I just like to accept the movie for what it’s worth. Eddy Murphy playing multiple roles, black culture, identity and a nice depiction of black love.
I decided why not do an updated take on Coming to America, with the creative help of my friends and below is what we created – The Ode to Coming to America!
