Although ‘Coming 2 America’ has its heart is in the right place, the sum total is little more than a PG-13 rehash of older, better material.


“Black Dynamite” is the rare parody that not only appreciates its source material, but builds on top of it. And while it’s too bad more people didn’t see it when it was released, it only made about $300,000 total, it’s perfectly suited for cult status and a second life on DVD. The jokes land harder at 3 a.m., it’s a great movie to watch with friends, and there are scenes and even lines of dialogue meant for repeat viewing.
