Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall reveal what killed 'Coming to America' sequel
We all loved 1988's Coming to America, but did we love it enough for a sequel? Turns out a sequel might have happened for the John Landis-Eddie Murphy-Arsenio Hall classic, but something got in the way.
Lawsuits, says Murphy on a guest appearance on Arsenio's show.
"When Coming to America came out, there were a bunch of lawsuits...with guys who claimed to be this and that," Murphy said on the show. "I'd be up in the club and this African dude would run up on me like, 'I am the real prince! You stole my life from me!!!'"
That's too bad. These days, even Eddie could use a few checks with some extra zeroes at the end, I'm betting.
TOP 5 FORGOTTEN LINES FROM COMING TO AMERICA:
5. "See, they're McDonald's... I'm McDowell's. They got the Golden Arches, mine is the Golden Arcs. They got the Big Mac, I got the Big Mick."
4. "Damn shame what they did to that dog."
3. "Believe me. I tied my own shoes once. It is an overrated experience."
2. "Girl, you look so good, someone ought to put you on a plate and sop you up with a biscuit."
1. "Hello, Babar."
