VERDICT – 2/5
1) It’s a seriously made rom-com about a Prince coming to America to find true love.
2) Great production value creating the lifestyle of the Kingdom of Zamunda.
3) There is no way one can tell Eddie Murphy & Arsenio Hall played the barbers and several other characters in the movie. The make-up is top-notch.
4) The Rocky Marciano vs. Joe Louis argument.
1) The director chose not to go for a full-blown comedy. The plot is predictable and by stressing more on the romantic aspect, the director wasted a good opportunity.
Lisa: Do you think I overreacted?
Akeem: The first reaction is often correct.
