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.

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.

This movie is one of those wonderful rentals, that may not have made a big splash at the box office, but is never in the video store. It is one of the funniest comedies around as it explores relationships in all angles. It also is a black comedy that celebrates African Americans who are successful, hard working, powerdriven, well educated, from complete families and community involved. Not too many movies do that nowadays. Boomerang is great and I can not wait for the DVD

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.

This is my favorite African-American movie of all time. I truly have to give credit to Reginald Hudlin for doing this movie, and for also doing "House Party." But what I really want to talk about is the two female characters: Jacqueline(Robin Givens) and Angela(Halle Berry). One day I was watching the DVD and I had it set on the "commentary by the director." What caught my attention was when Reginald Hudlin said something like how most women are the Hallies. And that is so true. Like he explained, most of us women relate more to Halle Berry's character who was shy and insecure, wanting to be so much like Robin Givens's character who was like a powerful stylish career woman. But even though Angela wasn't as glamorous as Jacqueline, Angela was the chosen one that changes Marcus(Eddie Murphy) and his ways, shows him the real true meaning of love, and at the end, Angela is the one that he wants to be with.

How can you not love Boomerang and better yet why isn't it being recognized as a classic. Eddie isn't just funny he also showed off his talent to be a good actor. You don't just get a comedy you get an interesting film about the life of a man who didn't know what he had until he lost it. You get a movie about a man who thought he was a real playa until he met not only his equal but also a woman on an entirely different level. Robin Givens kills her character and puts the fear of god into men by letting them know that women do what we can do and do it better. Halle Berry digs in as the beautiful girl that falls in love with a man that loves a girl that's playing him but he doesn't realize he had something just as good waiting for him until the end.

To be truthful not only does Eddie get played he gets outshined by these two beautiful actresses and can't really catch up. The funniest thing has to be John Witherspoon playing David Allen Greer's father and he shows you the reason why we never want to bring our girlfriends around our parents. Boomerang is a classic and can't be given anything under five stars because it's just done so smooth. So if your looking for a good love and comedy flick then this is definitely what you need.
