So, along with his faithful manservant (Arsenio Hall), he travels to New York with hopes of finding the woman of his dreams. When he arrives he takes a job in a burger bar, hoping to meet someone who will love him for himself and not his money. But despite his eagerness to learn the customs of this strange new land, the comic culture shocks keep coming thick and fast.
