C.T.P.’s Retro-Rewind: “ Coming to America ” Part 2

Here we go part 2!!!

For a recap on this Retro-Rewind: Rick, Miguel and Shawn got together to discuss a movie that was a major influence for the former two growing up. And for Shawn it was a brand new experience as he saw it for the first time that same day that they recorded!

In this part 2, we will be talking about the nightclub interviews scene, the heartbreaking ending, and more great moments! Join us as we get into the complexity of the characters and cultural tensions navigated, as well as the clever story weaving and smart humor.

We got into some deep stuff about the lessons the movie teaches and how it informed Miguel and Rick's values growing up. We also give our final grades on the re-watch worthiness of this classic film!
