Coming to America is underrated, it has its flaws


due to being a rom-com at heart, but it had its moments. It wasn't Trading Places, yet I'll put the scene where Murphy and Arsenio is at the charity event as one of the best for both of them.

It is very good writing and good acting. You may know Arsenio as the Reverend, but Murphy is Randy Watson as Joe the Policeman from the What's Going Down episode of That's my Momma, and it worked, with Sexual Chocolate.

That was one of the best transitions of Rom-Com's in the last 10 years, and it was done decades ago
