When thinking of early Eddie Murphy films, there are probably many that come tomind, but "Coming to America" is bound to be one of the first. Directed by John Landis, the 1988 film is a comedy about a prince from a fictional African kingdomwho ventures to America to find a wife. It's inaccurate in many ways, but hilariousin plenty of others. The film saw Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall at their comedicprime, taking on wildly different characters in a Queens, New York setting thatserved as a backdrop for the “culture shock” that their newcomers to the countryencounter. No matter how many times you’ve seen the film, there are certainmoments that bring uncontrollable laughter. Here are a few:

What a silly exercise Unthinkable is. It's just not very good! In fact, for a film centered on material of such gravity, it's more comical than it likely intended to be. I laughed. A lot. From Samuel L. Jackson's usual obnoxious screaming-man routine, to the film's preposterous setups, horrible, hackneyed dialogue, and ringing endorsement for torture, I'm not certain what exactly drew the film's impressive cast to the material. It's just absurd.
