Storyline

Before their third bombing mission over Germany the crew of the Boomerang prayed under the wing of the aircraft. It was then that the pilot, Charles Arnett, knew he wasn't coming back. He went anyway. His son, Mark Arnett, spent 14 years making a documentary about how his dad was shot down over Germany, spent eleven months as prisoner of war, and returned home to marry the girl he had only met three times. But Mark could never seem to finish the documentary. In March of 2008, Mark's father passed away. Mark finished it in a week. Written by Mark William Arnett

I loved it
24 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know if I cried or laughed harder! This is truly a delightful film. I think what I like about it the most, is how entertaining and non traditional it is. It's not just a boring war film, but a glimpse of a real experience backed with life lessons and an unbelievable love story. Beyond that, it makes me appreciate what I have. I love the scene that Charles describes as he is finally home in the States. He laid the alfalfa field and truly felt what it meant to be free. I love his descriptions of the green fields and the puffy white clouds. Although I have not experience imprisonment and war, I can glimpse at what it might have been like and share in this amazing experience. I've showed Baby Boomerang to many of my friends who all loved and enjoyed it. It's a real work of art.
