Plot summary

What is Coming 2 America movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Coming 2 America" movie plot summary.

On the 30th anniversary of his wedding with Lisa McDowell, Prince Akeem (Eddie Murphy) of Zamunda is summoned before his dying father, King Jaffe Joffer (James Earl Jones). Jaffe and his shaman Baba reveal to a baffled Akeem that he has sired a son during his first visit in Queens, New York after Semmi (Arsenio Hall) enticed two women into spending the night with them while Akeem was still searching for his future queen. One of them drugged Akeem, resulting in a tryst he does not remember; and since Zamundian tradition demands that only a male successor can inherit the throne, and Lisa has born only daughters, Akeem is forced to travel back to Queens to retrieve his son or else face a violent takeover by Zamunda's militaristic neighbor nation Nextdoria, whose dictator, General Izzi (Wesley Snipes), has repeatedly tried to push Akeem into marrying his eldest daughter Meeka to his foppish son, Idi.
Following King Jaffe's funeral and Akeem's ascension as king, he and Semmi travel to Queens to meet his illegitimate son, Lavelle Junson (Jermaine Fowler), to find him a smart-mouthed ticket resaler struggling to get a real job. After an awkward reunion with his mother Mary (Leslie Jones), Akeem takes them both (later followed by Lavelle's uncle Reem) back to Zamunda, much to his family's displeasure. When General Izzi learns of this, he drops by to introduce his daughter Bopoto to Lavelle as a last shot at laying claim to the throne of Zamunda, but in order to qualify as a royal prince, Lavelle firstly has to pass a series of traditional - and somewhat hazardous - tests. Lavelle is at first highly reluctant to place himself in danger, but then bonds with Mirembe (Nomzamo Mbatha), a royal groomer, who tells him of Akeem's quest to find his queen and encourages him to follow his own path. Lavelle gradually develops an understanding with Akeem's family, and using his wits and some forced courage, he passes and is made Prince of Zamunda.
