Movie Reviews

The BEST movie ever made!
Curtis Wingfield | Sunnyvale/Cupertino CA, USA | 04/14/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yes you read right, this is the best movie ever (at least to me)! Boomerang is about a player Marcus Gram(Eddie Murphy) who finally meets his match when he falls for a lovely woman named Jaqueline Broyer(Robin Givens). Everything that he did to women in the past all comes back to him, hence the title Boomerang(get it?). The supporting cast is as good as they come, they gel very good together, which include:Halley Barry, David Allan Grier, Martin Lawrence,Chris Rock,Ertha Kitt,etc(theres alot!). You'll see what I mean when you watch certain scenes like when Marcus and his friends are at dinner talking about women or working out talking about girls, its funny because it just seems like your there listening to friends really talking about that stuff. Theres also the dinner scene which is really good and funny! Mix that with a still to this day awesome soundtrack and yes you read right its the best movie ever made! Don't believe me, then go rent the video, but make sure to come back and buy it and dont say I didnt tell you so."
Eddie Murphy at His Best

"I'm so glad they finally decided to release a DVD version of Boomerang. I have the VHS version but I am sure to buy the DVD. Boomerang is one of my favorite movies of all time. It's a great love story and a wonderful depiction of how a dog gets dogged. Eddie plays the dog and Robin Givens plays the dogette. If you can get over the fact that she was once married to Mike Tyson you will see a wonderful portrayal of her character. Halle Berry makes a not so glamarous showing but is quite stunning to say the least. It's the first time you see Halle's personality and not just her looks. She not just a made up face but has substance. The cast is great and soundtrack is off-da-hook. This is by far some of Eddie's best work. He is funny, charming, and looks mighty fine in this movie. Be sure to buy the DVD when it is released. You will be pleasantly surprised. It's one for every African American Movie Collection."
Charming, Funny Flick.

"Eddie Murphy stars in this romantic comedy as a "player" who often brags to his two best buddies (played by David Alan Grier and Martin Lawrence) about his conquests. However, he meets his match when he falls for a workplace beauty (played by Robin Givens), who pretty much treats him the exact same way he treats his conquests. The strange thing about this film is that, in the beginning, when we see Murphy using all of these women, we start to think, "this guy is a no-good dog, and deserves to get a taste of his own medicine." However, when he finally *does* get a taste of his own medicine, we start to feel a little sad for him.

In this flick, you can also find such appearances from Grace Jones, John Witherspoon and Halle Berry, who plays the platonic friend of Murphy's character when he is down-in-the-dumps. This is a hilarious film, which should provide many with large doses of entertainment."
Really good film about dating and the work place
Dorrie Wheeler | 10/04/2004

""Boomerang" was one of Eddie Murphy's best and most underated films. Robin Givens stars in the film as a sexy business woman that Eddie Murphy woos but she get's the last laugh. Then comes along sweet little Halle Berry before she was a mega star. This is a really good flm with a lot of today's top talent. Look for David Allen Grier, and Chris Rock and Eartha Kitt gives a dazzling sexy performance for a senior citzen!"
