Don't miss scenes of the boys shooting hoops, as well as a brief background shot of kids playing Ace-King-Queen!

Coming To America Coming To America
Starring: Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall
Director: John Landis
Price: $25.49 (DVD)

Where does an African prince come to find a wife? Queens, naturally. Murphy's virtuoso performance is set amidst a great urban backdrop. Of course, any movie with the line, "Is it just me, or does every woman in New York have some kind of an emotional problem?" gets the nod from us.
