  • So the real question is did the higher ups in Hollywood allow the leaked copy to be released so that a good black film would fail?

  • Dead azz.......Soul plane failed because someone leaked a bomb azz clear bootleg copy that the masses were able to watch months before soul plane dropped in theaters.

  • 3 Strikes is my favorite Brian Hooks movie hands down. Newscaster Jerry Dunphy on Robs Parents living room TV: The Law Provides for 2-time offenders will be doubled, and that 3-time offenders will be put behind bars for a 25-year to life minimum. I don’t care if they’re robbing a bank, burlarizing someone’s home, or strongarming a slice of pizza. We are moving to a day where the federal government will no longer do state’s business. That’s right!!!!! Three Strikes, Rob, I knew yo black ass would fuck up!

  • I can see how Soul Plane being sold via bootleggers months before it was released could be a problem but that movie was NOT good. Omg, that movie is painful to watch. I like a good dumb movie every now and again but Holy Hell the stereotypes alone in this movie was just too over the top.

  • Don't compare Soul Plane with Airplane and Naked Gun. While Airplane and Naked Gun were comedy gold filled with clever jokes, Soul Plane had nothing but racist, homophobic and sexist jokes as if a immature teenage boy wrote the movie. If you're going to have a movie filled with talented actors and actress, then don't have them work with a piss poor script and director.

  • 💡🤔👆 Is it possible, "Soul Plane" just wasn't as GOOD a film as "AirPlane". it was just hood funny (Like "I Got the Hook-Up). Soul Plane was "The Wash" in the air.. TOO MUCH STERIOTYPING IN A BLACK FILM is BAD

    DJ ALLDAYDJ ALLDAY23 kun oldin
  • Soul Plane did poorly because it had no crossover appeal...and it was kinda lame. It was a movie that highlighted EVERY other black stereotype and had the token white people. It was too much of a hood movie, for my taste.

  • Soul Plane was HORRIBLE!!! It didn't age well, & can't even be mentioned in a sentence with an Eddie Murphy fart, let alone a movie... Coming 2 America could Never be the Original, but is not as Cringeworthy as Soul Plane. There are ZERO funny parts, or quotables in Soul Plane. The best part of that Movie was seeing our favorite black stars.... There Will NEVER be a soul Plane 2! ( The Boondocks parody was dope doe)

    ACLA$$_INC.ACLA$$_INC.23 kun oldin
  • The movie didn't do well because Kevin Hart is a sub par comedian and he can't hold a movie on his own. Also the plot and stereo types in the movie just wasn't funny.

  • In regards to Coming 2 America, Eddie has gone on record in interviews long before the movie's release that he really didn't want to do a sequel to Coming to America. He felt that the story ended at the end of that movie. The reason he finally changed his mind was because whenever he met fans of his they would always ask him when a sequel was coming. So he did that movie really as a love letter to fans but he knew it would never be as good as the original. This is probably the same reason he's hesitant to do stand-up comedy again. People will say he's not as funny as he was with Delirious or Raw.

The situation with both movies are different but, the question was still the same.... Both the movies didn't do well, why do you think that was?
