Critic Reviews of "Coming To America"New York Daily NewsJuly 07, 2015
Murphy has dealt audiences the movie equivalent of a royal flush and he is now clearly Hollywood's reigning king of comedy.TIME MagazineJune 06, 2009
The director is ... rather distracted; John Landis seems to be browsing through the scenes rather than gobbling them down.VarietyOctober 18, 2008
Starts on a bathroom joke, quickly followed by a gag about private parts, then wanders in search of something equally original for Eddie Murphy to do for another couple of hours.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Superb comic timing, a satirical edge, and Murphy's extraordinary gift for mimicry lift it right out of the trough of mediocrity to which it is all but consigned by its utterly predictable storyline.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
A screenplay that seems to have escaped its doctors before it was entirely well.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
In Landis' hands, the film doesn't live up to even the meagerest of expectations.Reel Film ReviewsAugust 11, 2014
...a worthy followup to Murphy and Landis' first collaboration, Trading Places.Common Sense MediaJanuary 01, 2011
Silly, curse-happy '80s Eddie Murphy vehicle.TV GuideJune 06, 2009
Murphy gives his sweetest, most touching, and most genuinely likable performance to date, playing a character who embraces society instead of holding it in contempt.Film4June 06, 2009
The winning combination of Landis and Murphy redeems the very predictable storyline, which is chock-full of snappy one-liners and impressive caricatures by Murphy and Hall.7M PicturesMarch 05, 2009
very funny and shows Eddie Murphy in his primeApollo GuideFebruary 21, 2009
Not only a great comedic effort but Eddie Murphy's best romantic film as well.
