Angela Bassett would make Emmy history if she wins lead actress for 'ER'

I'd always heard Coming to America was hilarious. I now agree. Wholeheartedly.

Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall execute an entire 114 minutes of hilarity that makes you wish both of their careers hadn't derailed to their current positions.

Prince Akeem (Murphy), unwilling to accept the arranged marriage set up by King Jaffe Joffer (James Earl Jones) and Queen Aoleon (Madge Sinclair), takes his royal assistant Semmi (Arsenio Hall) to New York to find the smart and strong-willed queen of a wife he desires. With 40 days to complete his objective he goes »
