Eddie's last good film before his four year slump (by DunnDeeDaGreat)
Boomerang was Murphy's last good film before he hit his slump. The film directed by Reginald Hudlin gave Murphy the chance to spit many one-liners and the chance for us to see two people who would be big ten years later Martin Lawerence and Halle Berry. If you've never seen this film check it out for some good laughs.
Players get played too (by Newsense)
Man has this movie aged well. Boomerang was crass, raunchy, vulgar and funny as hell to boot. It was Eddie Murphy in top form just the way we like him.Plot/story: Marcus Graham Eddie Murphy is a marketing executive with a player mentality who meets his match with a gorgeous boss by the name of Jacqueline Robin Givens . Marcus eventually tries to cope after getting p-whipped and played by Jacqueline.Opinion: Boomerang was funny as hell back then as it is funny now. The interactions between Eddie Murphy, David Alan Grier and Martin Lawrence characters are funny as hell. Grace Jones's <more>
character Strange' is a riot. I still lmao at the restaurant scene where Strange' loudly proclaims her favorite part of the female anatomy 20 times in front of everybody. Eartha Kitt's Lady Eloise is a hoot also. John Weatherspoon is just as funny as David Alan Grier's character's father. Boomerang works because it doesn't just rely on the comics being funny alone like most comedies do . Its material is funny in its raunchiness and the chemistry between everybody works. I would strongly recommend this movie any day over the recent busts that Eddie Murphy has starred in. 5 stars.Rest In Peace Eartha Kitt.
One of my favorite comedies...Period (by Oatmeal-n-Bisquick77)
Where do I start? Wow. It is rare that a movie can make me smile but at the same make me really laugh. No fake laughs but real laughs I seen this movie a number of times and it never gets old. The cast is so superb... I mean come on Martin who is actually funny in this movie... okay he was funny in blue streak also David Allen Grier Very underrated talent...funniest cast member on "in living color" and of Course Eddie Murphy. Then the other supporting cast was hilarious. How can anyone not love this movie... and my god I can quote it all day long. This movie is a perfect <more>
example of relying on the surrounding cast members and not one star to bring in the funny. Worth the view..
This film may have it's problems, and apparently many people saw them first hand and stayed away from the film. And I have to admit that the first time I saw this film I wasn't too enthused with it. But after I saw it a second time I fell in love with it and I now own it on video and have seen it quite a few more. And the reason is simple.First of all it is an excellent romance. Eddie really surprised me with his ability to write a story that actually had me touched. He is especially good as a player who gets played but actually falls in love. Murphy has shown a different side to him <more>
here and it is also one of his funnier films in quite some time. He is assisted in the comedy department here by two very funny guys, David Allan Grier and Martin Lawrence, the latter stealing every scene he is in.Martin Lawrence has never been as funny as he was in this film. He was great in Bad Boys, but his supporting turn here as Gerard is a classic. There is a true camaraderie here between the three friends Murphy, Lawrence and Grier and their conversation and actions around one another has the easy flow that longtime friends exhibit. They play jokes on each other, they make fun of each other and they are supportive of one another. But Lawrence has all the funny lines. From burning his dinner when his friends come over, to his hilarious observations about racism the game of pool is racist because the white ball knocks the **** out of all the coloured balls, including the black one to defending his unfortunate lack of lovemaking in the last few years, his interpretation of Tyler is just perfect.Boomerang is also blessed with a truly mellifluous soundtrack. With P.M. Dawn and Boyz To Men, among many of the stars, lending tracks to the film, it reminds me of the soundtrack to Last American Virgin in the sense that there are so many of today's superstars of music on the soundtrack. With Babyface producing, this is another winning production from him.Boomerang solidifies Eddie Murphy's return to the king of comedy. He did rebound nicely after this film and it is good to see him going back to what he knows. A very, very funny film.9/10
A few things seems weird about the IMDb reviews of this movie, to bring it down to a 5.4 ratings. 1. It's funny how a lot of reviewers remember walking out of the theaters, when they wrote their reviews 12...15...17 years after the movie was released. Like it was a personal vendetta against Eddie Murphy and the Hudlin brothers. 2. The movie, in 1992, was actually quite popular and didn't get panned by critics. So, it's funny to see so many 1 ratings, and people reviewing it as if it were the worst movie ever made. 3. I've always heard the rumors and witnessed it myself that <more>
IMDb reviewers don't seem to like popular black movies or TV shows. Seems like trolls, from entities other than those that make black productions, want to discourage potential viewers from seeing something other than their own creations.My review: A very good rom-com with a great cast of old favorites and legends.
Sexy, seductive, witty, glamorous, and hilarious (by Catherine_Grace_Zeh)
BOOMERANG is one of the best Eddie Murphy movies I have ever seen. I laughed really hard when Marcus Eddie Murphy said, "Kirby!" In my opinion, all the women looked very beautiful in the dressy clothing they wore, especially Christie Lela Rochon and Jacqueline Robin Givens . Another thing that made me laugh were the confrontations between Marcus and Yvonne Tisha Campbell . I especially loved Tyler Martin Lawrence . His act was really funny. It was funny, but a little crude. This movie was very sexy, seductive, witty, glamorous, and hilarious in my opinion. In conclusion, I <more>
recommend this movie to anyone who's a fan of Eddie Murphy. You're in for a real treat and a lot of laughs, so go to the video store, rent it or buy it, kick back with a friend, and watch it.
Eddie shines in this sexy and stylish comedy... (by Isaac5855)
One of Eddie Murphy's best performances in one of his least seen films was the 1992 winner BOOMERANG. This smart and sophisticated romantic comedy stars Eddie as Marcus Graham, a womanizing advertising executive who loves the thrill of the chase where women are concerned, but once he has completed the chase, he is ready to move on. His sexual exploits have made him the center of his circle of friends Martin Lawrence, a paranoid racist, and David Alan Grier, an insecure milquetoast who live vicariously through him and admire his style as the ultimate player. Everything changes for Marcus <more>
when he acquires a new boss named Jacqueline Robin Givens , Marcus is enamored of Jacqueline, but is completely thrown by the fact that Jacqueline is a female version of himself, a player who avoids commitment and uses Marcus when it is convenient for her. Throw into the mix another co-worker of Marcus named Angela Halle Berry who is nuts about him, but he doesn't know she's alive. Everything works here and it is so refreshing to see a movie with a predominately black cast where the characters are people with brains and real jobs. Murphy exudes mass amounts of sex appeal in one of his best roles and Halle Berry, though allegedly playing a plain Jane, just couldn't come off that way if she tried. There are some wonderful comic bits contributed along the way by Grace Jones, Geoffrey Holder, Tisha Campbell, and the legendary Eartha Kitt, memorable as an aging cosmetics queen with the hots for Marcus. A winning and original take on the Battle of the Sexes that is entertaining from start to finish.
A great comedy which seemed to be one of the last good ones with Murphy (by PersianPlaya408)
Reginald Hudlins Boomerang is probably Eddie Murphy last good film to date. In this story of a marketing executive who is also a player. Murphy is great in this role, funny and full of hilarious one-liners. The film is written well, very funny, direction is decent and acting is good for the most part. Although Givens is not the best female lead, Halle Berry was great in her role. Martin Lawrence and Chris Rock were absolutely hilarious, and David Alan Grier was good as well. The film is not to be taken to seriously, and although not at the caliber of Murphy favs of mine "coming to <more>
America" and " beverly hills cop", Boomerang is still a must-see for any Eddie Murphy fan. 8/10
Typically I don't like Eddie Murphy since his range is so limited and his humor wasn't funny in 1980 and hasn't changed much since then however....he breaks that mold and does a pretty decent job. He pulls off suave without being smarmy and except for the middle part of the script where he fails to see he's being played it works.It doesn't hurt that the movie has some gorgeous ladies Halle, Robin Givens, Grace Jones . As a player Eddie shows some great style as not seen since the Tao of Steve.An underrated movie and worth the time to watch.
