Storyline

Marcus is a successful advertising executive who woos and beds women almost at will. After a company merger, he finds that his new boss, the ravishing Jacqueline, is treating him in exactly the same way. Completely traumatized by this, his work goes badly downhill. But then Jacqueline's more quietly attractive assistant, Angela, who has been dating Marcus' best friend, shows herself more than a little concerned by his parlous state. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

Goofs

Angela answers her cordless phone. We hear her push the talk button to answer it, and it immediately beeps back twice which means the handset either has a dead battery or is out of range from the base unit. In either case, the double beep means the handset would be inoperable, yet she talks on it. See more »

A great comedy which seemed to be one of the last good ones with Murphy
8 August 2005 | by (Milpitas, California) – See all my reviews

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 America" and " beverly hills cop", Boomerang is still a must-see for any Eddie Murphy fan. 8/10
