Coming to America - One Window?
During the scene where Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall are being shown the room that they will be staying in while in queens, the landlord says the room has only 1 window facing a brickwall, he said he used to rent it to a blind man. In the very next scene , Eddie is standing on his balcany(catwalk)looking over the city....where is the brick wall???? Why does the room have two windows???? Watch for this one!

Coming to America I have seen that movie many times and in fact saw it only last night. You are absolutely right about the windows in Akeem's apartment.

I think maybe the landlord meant that the room doesn't have a good view and only faces the brick side of another building instead of seeing the city. Being the city and all, their room would be in a vary narrow alley, (in which case you would see the brick side of the next building) or a wider alley or street, which I think it did.

Even if the landlord meant that the window faces a brick wall or alley or whatever euphemism he is employing...he specifically says "One window.." In the balcony scene where Akeem is proclaiming to the neighborhood, Semi sticks his head out from a second window at a different level from the first entirely.
