The Golden Child (1986)

Recommended Posts

I think The Golden Child needs to be seriously considered. It's the first movie staring Eddie Murphy that is a total flop (besides that one with Dudley Moore), and it had huge expectations. It was a flop, and is a terrible movie, yet it's highly watchable. It's borderline racist. Seems perfect for HDTGM!

I'm pretty sure it crosses the border into full on racist. But it would definitely be great for the show.

By flop, do you mean success? It made 80 million off a budget of 25.

Um, this is a good movie by Eddie Murphy. I swear, its like people are just adding movies just for the hell of it. If I see a thread on here about Coming to America then, I know this place is full of shit.

Yeah, I've kind of given up with the suggestions and just enjoy shooting the shit about movies. Someone got crazy butthurt when I said something similar to what you said, when they suggested Warm Bodies.

 

Golden Child is a fine product of its time, an era when Eddie Murphy made fun movies.

Was this a fun movie. I haven't seen it in years but I remember it being fairly serious. Especially compared to the other films Eddie Murphy was doing around this time.

It's a serious story with a fun main character. This is honestly one of my favorite movies.

The Golden Child was one of Eddie Murphy's more watchable movies. before the dark time before Nutty Professor and The Adventures of Pluto Nash.

My landlord has a skullet (mullet but you're totally bald on top) and always wears tracksuits, so that one henchman totally reminds me of him

This movie was hugely entertaining and popular, and I totally enjoyed watching it multiple times in the 80's. But anyone who thinks this is a ”good” movie is letting nostalgia impair their judgment. Would love to hear Paul, June and Jason discuss it!
