The reservations I had regarding this film was the retreading of the same kind of jokes. Having all the characters back to just have them back and banking on the nostalgia rather than delivering a great film and a great story. Whilst the first trailer gave us a snippet of what this movie could be about, Prince Akeem returning to America to look for a son he never knew he had, who will inherit the throne, but it has now been revealed in this new trailer that there might be some sibling rivalry as the daughter, being Zamunda born, feels she has more claim to the throne than some absent child from America. But as it seems, Zamunda is only ruled by male heirs, that would place Akeem in a difficult position to cater for his two children whilst having some parenting to do and making the right choice with touch decisions.
The idea of this is decent and I'm sure they will touch on some proper issues we deal with in everyday life as parents. The trailer though, was only really funny in two places for me and it made me concerned that the film may not be funny enough. Besides, it has been 32 years, we need to evolve and bring the comedy and story telling to today's standards without losing the magic of what made the first such a classic and I hope they are able to do that with this.
Directed by Craig Brewer and starring Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, Jermaine Fowler, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, KiKi Layne, Shari Headley, Teyana Taylor, Wesley Snipes & James Earl Jones
