Coming to America Honest Trailer

This week brings the comedy sequel Coming 2 America to Amazon Prime. It’s been over 20 years since the original Coming to America hit theaters, when Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall were at the top of their game. Do they still have what it takes to bring the laughs, or will they follow in the footsteps of long-gestating comedy sequels like Dumb & Dumber To and Bad Santa 2?

We’ll find out in a couple days whether Coming 2 America has the goods, but in the meantime, the Coming to America Honest Trailer gives credit where credit is due while also reminding us that Eddie Murphy still fell far from the glory of the 1980s, especially when it comes to playing multiple roles in the same movie.

Street Fighter Honest Trailer

Street Fighter arrived a year after Super Mario Bros. stunk up the big screen, and it didn’t do any favors for video game movies. In fact, this movie may as well have been an entirely original movie, because if there’s one thing that the Street Fighter movie barely has, it’s actual street fights. But as the Street Fighter Honest Trailer reminds us, there’s plenty of Jean-Claude Van Damme being an All-American soldier with a Belgian accent and Raul Julia swishing his cape around while making the best of a terrible script.
