A huge box-office hit, this romantic farce follows spoiled African prince Eddie Murphy to New York with loyal assistant Arsenio Hall seeking an independent woman worthy to call his wife. Striving for authenticity, they move to a ratty Queens apartment and work undercover at a fast-food restaurant, where Murphy falls for the owner’s daughter Shari Headley.

A film by John Landis
