I remember watching Coming to America when it first came out back in 1988, and I’ve seen it several times since then. It’s one of those Semmi cult classic movies that I’ll find a way to quote from on occasion, or reference in some manner. If you caught that and understood the reference, we can be friends….or we’re the same type of sad and eyeroll worthy movie geeks. When I heard they were making a sequel I was more than a little worried about how it would come across, but I knew I was going to watch it regardless. It has been a few years since I’d seen the original, and before I watched Coming 2 America I wanted to re-watch Coming to America, so I decided to view them back to back. After having done so, it is my firm belief that this is the best way possible to appreciate the sequel, especially given the state of the way people act towards one another these days.Continue Reading
