Coming To America

Coming To America

Eddie Murphy's rise to fame was at its peak in the 1980's, with films such as Trading Places, Beverly Hills Cop, and Coming To America all making him a household name. However, it's this tale of a prince trying to avoid an arranged marriage, by posing as a pauper in New York, that helped Eddie become recognized for a rather important piece of his schtick: playing multiple characters in the same scene. In particular, the barber shop scene, which features a young Cuba Gooding Jr., also showcases Murphy and co-star Arsenio Hall, as several different people, all sharing a hilarious moment. While this may have peaked with The Nutty Professor, and completely collapsed under Norbit, it was a gag that made a killing in Coming To America, and shows just how great Eddie Murphy was in his prime.
