I've been wanting to see this film for a while and I finally got to watch it on Prime. It really is a very nice movie. It showcased many of the Brother and Sisters at the early rise of their acting careers. And It showcased many Melenated Folks who we liked seeing on film. The story is a romance story but its not too cheesy, its a little raw, its, a little funny, a little sad, a little embarrassing, and yes...a little cheesy.

The soundtrack is exceptional also. It features a good mix of different styles of music performed by folks who are actually talented! And the audio quality is excellent too!

Folks forgot or don't realize how Eddie really did represent the Melenated point of view, and showed and proved his commitment to making cinema with "Black" folks fully and well represented.
I'm buying this. That's why I was looking for it, to add it to my permanent movie collection.
I'm glad it was in prime though. There are not enough "higher end" Melenated films offered in Prime. They have the channel that you can subscribe to, but why do I have to go there to get some of the strong stuff? Feel me now...

FORMAT: DVD
UPC: 8-83929-30381-6
RELEASED: 2002-09-24

TITLE: Boomerang (1992) • R • 1:56:31
Eddie Murphy, Robin Givens, Halle Berry, David Alan Grier
Reginald Hudlin (Director)

This is, in my opinion, one of Eddie Murphy's funniest movies, by far — with its elegant role reversal of the dog (Eddie Murphy) getting dogged with a taste of his own medicine from she-dog (and, yes, I do know there is another word for a female canine, but it has certain rather negative connotations that don't apply in this instance) Robin Givens. Plus, add young versions of Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence and Tisha Campbell, the surprisingly funny Grace Jones, along with the ageless talent of Eartha Kitt to the mix, and step back and watch the fireworks. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

See the other reviews for more detail and/or other opinions regarding the plot of the movie.

VIDEO: 1.78:1 • Color • 480p • MPEG-2 (8.4 Mbps)

Within the confines of the DVD format (and, I'm sure, because of its SUBSTANTIALLY higher than average bit-rate), this transfer exhibits very-good to frequently excellent picture quality. This film features richly saturated colors, good contrast and very-good shadow detail. In addition, relatively fine detail (for a DVD) is evident in the brighter scenes and in many of the close-ups of actor's faces and their clothing. Also, there are no obvious artifacts such as banding, specks, white dots, hair-lines or color fluctuations to detract from the image. Overall, this movie's presentation on DVD has very good picture quality, and should satisfy all but the pickiest viewers.

AUDIO: Dolby Digital 5.1 (448 Kbps)

The audio quality exhibited by the Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack on this DVD, while not a lossless high-definition soundtrack, is an example of what can be accomplished with the format when you put forth the effort — it sounds GREAT! The surround channels were very active and very directional, dialog was cleanly recorded and is natural sounding and is well-placed, and ambient sounds (which were used to convey the location of the on-screen settings and actions) were very effectively integrated into the soundtrack. Also, surprisingly, there are a few (granted, very few) occasions where deep, energetic bass is evident. In addition, the well recorded music (featuring many Soul and R&B hits from the time period) sounds fantastic — as it is utilized very effectively in the front AND surround channels. This is a very fine example of cinematic sound design, particularly for a romantic comedy, which should satisfy all but the very pickiest of listeners.

This movie of so funny. Hadn’t seen it in ages. I just wish Amazon would improve the rental window. I got halfway through and had to stop and come back to it later. By the time I sat down to watch it again, my rental expired. 😕 They should consider timing the rental window by the actual time you spend watching it. If I pause, I should be able to pick it up in a few days. Maybe allow 2 complete views rather than just a 48 hour window.

I adore this film and have seen it at least 3 times. It is very smart, sexy and sophisticated. I've always been a BIG Eddie Murphy fan and this particular acting ensemble brings out the best in Murphy. Murphy and Robin Givens absolutely sizzle and know how to pace and build the tension in a delicious dance of the sexes. The opening theme to the film score of Boomerang is one of the most thrilling I've ever heard in a movie. It immediately captured and swept me into Marcus's world, musically defining his point of view.

The laugh, the style, the intelligence, topped off by the realness, great performances come from within, and every actor in this movie was made to play their part, Eddie bought it all home and makes this one of those timeless classics

I was recommended this film from a server at a local waffle house. This film checked all boxes for me. Eddie Murphy was a classic act and provided nonstop laughs. Good story, great characters.
