FilmWook’s review published on Letterboxd:
The funniest bits in Coming to America are the barbershop bits...and the BEST of the barbershop bits is Clarence upping Joe Louis's age every sentence
Morris: "That's right, he did whip Joe Louis's ass!
Clarence: "Joe Louis was seventy-five years old when he fought!"
Morris: "I don't know how old he was, but he got his ass whooped."
Clarence: "Joe Louis had come out of retirement to fight Rocky Marciano! The man was seventy-six years old! Joe Louis always lied about his age! He lied about his age all the time! One time, Frank Sinatra came in here, and sat in this chair. I say, "Frank, you hang out with Joe Louis. Just between me and you, how old is Joe Louis?" Know what Frank told me? He said "Hey, Joe Louis is a hundred thirty-seven years old." A hundred and thirty-seven years old!"
I could've stayed in that barbershop for the entire movie
