Coming 2 America (2021)


Prince Akeem is about the celebrate his 30th wedding anniversary to Lisa McDowell when he learns he has an illegitimate son from his time in New York.  After reuniting with Lavelle, he and Akeem return to Zamunda where Lavelle is groomed to follow in his father's footsteps.  He prefers one of his groomers over a General's daughter and is eventually given his father's blessing to marry.

While a sequel to Coming To America (1988) sounded like a good idea, what we got was a tired, rehash of the 80's classic comedy.  Though it wasn't a total wash.  It was nice to see the original cast reassembled and a performance by Sexual Chocolate goes a long away.
