Coming 2 America | Ratings & Reviews

"A lovingly made exercise in nostalgia that delivers several genuine laughs, even if it never achieves the comedic excellence of its predecessor."

Entertainment WeeklyEntertainment Weekly

"After all these years, the land of Zamunda is still the world capital of comedy."

Chicago Sun-TimesChicago Sun-Times

"A genial, mostly inoffensive, sometimes quite funny sequel to a beloved comedy from way back in the 1980s."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Even by the woeful standards of decades-too-late comedy sequels, Coming 2 America is desperate, belabored, and thin."

Slant MagazineSlant Magazine

"The movie is basically as tired as Akeem himself."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall are back in Coming 2 America. It wasn't worth the wait."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"It's clearly meant to function as a celebration of the original film's enduring legacy. Fans should just watch that movie again instead."

A.V. ClubA.V. Club

"Includes so many nods to its predecessor that it feels like a feature-length Easter Egg in search of a movie."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Chock full of callbacks, in-jokes, knowing references and replays, Coming 2 America is adamantly, unabashedly one for the fans."

The Washington PostThe Washington Post

"Somewhere between pleasant time-killer and missed opportunity."

Daily TelegraphDaily Telegraph

"Skillfully and warmly catering to our affection for the past will have to do."

Boston GlobeBoston Globe

"Coming 2 America delivers a broad, serviceable return to Zamunda."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"A happy reunion can't re-create the original's spark, innocence and masterful comedy."

New York PostNew York Post

"A toothless, fleetingly funny revisit with some moments of greatness yet too much of the same old story to feel fresh."

USA TodayUSA Today

"Coming 2 America is startling in its utter incompetence."

Vanity FairVanity Fair

"It doesn't feel like the filmmakers wrote a new script so much as they just... rewrote the old script."


"Coming 2 America falls back on familiar punchlines, serving up nearly word-for-word repeats of amusing bits from the original."
