Reviews


88
Chicago Sun-Times - Richard Roeper
After all these years, the land of Zamunda is still the world capital of comedy.
75
IndieWire - Eric Kohn
Those who adore the original, however, will feel like they’ve been revisited by an old friend, or perhaps the dirty uncle, whose jokes are a bit frayed but still pointed enough. Produced at a time when big, brash studio comedies rarely crack the zeitgeist, Coming 2 America works far better than the market standard, in part because it does right by its roots.
75
Entertainment Weekly - Kristen Baldwin
Coming 2 America is cute and fun, a lovingly made exercise in nostalgia that delivers several genuine laughs, even if it never achieves the comedic excellence of its predecessor.
60
Arizona Republic - Bill Goodykoontz
Ultimately Coming 2 America isn’t a sequel that ruins the original. But it doesn’t improve upon it, either.
60
Empire - Unnamed
If it’s missing the charm and Murphy’s magnetism from the first film, Coming 2 America delivers a broad, serviceable return to Zamunda.
