not a movie Id recomend to people. The only good thing I'll say about it is it IS better than Eddie Murphy's flic The Golden Child. Not by much, but it is better.

5 stars from start to finish! Very funny and memorable. Highly recommended!

The language is a bit raw (this is Eddie Murphy after all) yet overall this is a surprisingly sweet, romantic tribute to love between equals. Murphy's wealthy foreign prince rejects the perfect , (and perfectly servile) woman prepared for him, in favor of a sensible, hardworking daughter of the black American middle class.
