    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.

    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.
