Coming to America (1988)

In the classic ensemble comedy Coming to America, Eddie Murphy played African prince Akeem, who comes to America to find a bride he can respect as an equal. Borrowing from Richard Pryor's multiple roles in Which Way Is Up, Murphy also played several unforgettable characters. The cast also included Aresenio Hall and John Amos.
