* Look, Eriq La Salle, tigers don't live in Africa, okay?
* Commentary on class, wealth, and status was surprisingly strong and sympathetic to the working class, but ultimately, it takes a fairytale ending to suggest wealth is the real form of happiness after all. Can't expect them all to be outright socialist, but of course, I do.
* Akeem makes a very strong statement about women early on, and to my surprise, the film doesn't entirely squander it. In the end, it's down to Lisa's choice, even if the details happen off-screen. Going back to the commentary on class, it suggests that it requires a humbling of a king.
* A pretty great cast of supporting actors, especially John Amos.
* Despite all this, I, uh, didn't find it to be as funny as advertised. There were some laughs, but nothing killed me.
