‘Coming 2 America’ review: Eddie Murphy return not worth the wait

“Coming 2 America” is the rare sequel whose title sounds identical to the original, which may be the cleverest thing about it. And also the most confusing, bound to throw off anyone trying to delineate the two aloud.

They neatly sum up the extent to which this new movie exists in its predecessor’s shadow.That isn’t terrible or surprising. Few sequels escape those shadows and…
