#MOOD: Coming to America - "We Go to Queens" (269 hits)

Featured in this clip from the 1988 John Landis comedy, COMING TO AMERICA, Akeem and Semmi decide that Queens, New York is the place to meet a future bride.

ABOUT THE FILM:
Akeem Joffer, the heir to the throne of Zamunda (a fictional African kingdom), lives a pampered lifestyle with every daily task performed by servants. Akeem has become fed up with this and wishes to do more for himself. The final straw comes when his parents, King Jaffe and Queen Aeoleon, present him with an arranged bride-to-be named Imani Izzi, whom he has never met and who has been trained to obey Akeem's every command. Akeem concocts a plan to travel to the United States to find an intelligent, independent-minded woman he can both love and respect, and who will love Akeem for who he is and not for his wealth and social status as a prince (Wikipedia CC-Generic)
