    Is it another fun classic 80's comedy... or a terrible 80's flop?

    How many of you guys knew that the "Golden Child" was actually a girl?

    Eddie Murphy was arrested with a tranny prostitute that one time. That is the only thing I associate with him ever since.

    It's an 80s classic. Certainly not a great movie by any means but an enjoyable slice of hokum all the same.

    I thought that movie sucked (outside of maybe a couple gags) at the time and would be shocked to find it holding up in any way shape or form.

    oved The Golden Child as a kid, still love it. The Golden Child and Big Trouble in Little China were very frequent watches for myself, my brother and my dad when I was a kid, they were always on one of the local stations or cable.

    If it's the movie I'm thinking of, I haven't been able to look at porridge the same way since. I still eat it, but the first touch is always tentative.

    I'm going with fun 80's classic.

    If I'm channel surfing and come across The Golden Child... I'm probably going to watch it.

    It is one of those movies that I watch at least once a year if I can catch it. It wasnt the greatest movie but I relive a part of my childhood everytime I watch it.

    I liked it.

    I probably like Trading places the best though. Eddie was on point that movie. I still lol whenever I see the scene where he is rolling around on that cart, begging for money.

    Holy shit. I had completely forgotten about that movie until I saw this thread, it's been at least 12 years since I've seen it. From what I remember, I enjoyed it and it's campiness. I actually might watch it this week again sometime. Thanks, TS.
