Synopsis

Akeem, Crown Prince of the (fictional) African state of Zamunda, rebels against his arranged marriage - and travels to New York looking for a woman that will love him for who he is. Living in a grotty flat in an unfriendly district and taking a job in a burger bar, Akeem and his loyal servant get an interesting insight into how Americans live - once they've worked their way through some hilarious misunderstandings. A slick comedy with a stand-out central performance from the brilliant Eddie Murphy.
