35 Coming To America Quotes From The Classic Comedy

After 33 years, this classic romantic comedy finally released a sequel. In honor of the new release, here are 35 of the best quotes from the original Coming to America.

Starring Eddie Murphy (as multiple characters, of course), based on the original story written by Eddie Murphy, and directed by John Landis, Coming to America has spent the last three decades becoming one of the most quotable comedy classics.

Murphey’s story, and the screenplay written by David Sheffield and Barry W. Blaustein, follows the young crown prince of a fictional African country, Zamunda, Prince Akeem. Believing there is more to love and life than his pampered palace and arranged marriage, Akeem comes to America to experience real-life and find true love.
