Pampered African Prince Akeem is a rebel who is against an arranged marriage and heads to Queens, New York to find a new bride. His regal father agrees to allow the prince 40 days to roam the U.S., sending the prince's faithful retainer Semmi along to make sure nothing untoward happens. To avoid fortune hunters, Prince Akeem conceals his true identity and gets a "regular" guy job at a fast-food restaurant.

A very funny and thoughtful movie that engages comedy to shed light on how we believe our cultural norms, beliefs, and baggage to be facts, when they are just cultural norms, beliefs, and baggage.
