“Coming to America is one of my films that has really done its job in the culture. People dress up as characters for Halloween, and they still go on to be called ‘sexual chocolate’ as café.” Randy Watson, living all the way around, was dropping the mic long ago … One thing I didn’t want to do was a bad sequel to a movie that has a lot of people investing a lot. A lot of people coming to America big. Huh. It’s special to him. So, you don’t want it. “

“The legacy of coming to America is that it’s unique, it’s rare. Black people, we don’t get a lot of movies like this. Coming to America is a romantic fantasy comedy. Usually, when we see ourselves on screen ., It’s heavy stuff … hardly we get to see some escapism. Just go to see a movie and not think about any of that stuff. Coming to America is a black-cast, but Not about the movie. The race. It’s not about putting a foot in your ass or ‘waking up’ or ‘keeping hope alive.’ It’s none of those things you can just go through and sit back. Can watch the movie. And it’s about these people and it’s about someone trying to find true love. It’s like a fictional story, like a fairy tale. And that’s Legacy. The film is that it is one of the few romantic fairies with black people. I think we love it. That’s why 30 years later, we still see it and they see it on Christmas and all Because it is This is a lovely thing. “
