4. "Coming to America" (1988)
Again, an Eddie Murphy (and Arsenio Hall) acting showcase. The stars of the film took on at least six separate personas in addition to their central characters, all of them enhanced by and mesmerizing for Baker's work. Yes, that's Eddie Murphy over there as a white, Jewish barbershop regular. Baker's work with Murphy never really reached another level after their "Nutty Professor" collaboration. It would be nice to see them tackle something fresh together once again.
