Director John Landis
Genre Drama, Comedy, Romance
Plot – Akeem is the heir to the throne of an utopian and rich little state in Africa. His father has already arranged his marriage to a submissive local girl. However Akeem, Western-educated, wants a woman who loves him for his personality and not for his social position. For this reason, he goes to America where he pretends to be a poor student. While he works as a counterman in a fast food restaurant, he conquers the daughter of the wealthy owner, even if she's already engaged to an arrogant "daddy's boy". The jokes about the habits of the black people and of the Yankees are hilarious.
