Eddie Murphy plays Marcus Graham, a hotshot advertising executive who's also an insatiable womanizer. He is thus hardly prepared for his new boss, Jacqueline, played by Robin Givens. In terms of things romantic, Jacqueline is nothing more or less than a female version of Marcus — and now, for the first time, he's getting the runaround. Boomerang boasts supporting-cast contributions from Halle Berry, David Alan Grier, Martin Lawrence, Grace Jones, Eartha Kitt, Geoffrey Holder, and Melvin Van Peebles. Watch closely and you'll see director Reginald Hudlin in a bit role.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There's something paradoxical about the ease he radiates in playing a man who is supposed to be a smashing success. As an underdog, Mr. Murphy worked much harder.
Rotten: For all the sex talk in Boomerang, there's very little nudity. The only thing naked is Murphy's vanity.
Rotten: In Boomerang Eddie Murphy straitjackets himself in an ill-fitting comedy vehicle that's desperately in need of a reality check.
Fresh: Murphy gives his most appealing performance to date, using his smug, self-satisfied, sly smile as a joke on his own well-known screen persona.
This is a Classic - This has so many great lines in this movie that makes people laugh just when they hear you say them - tell me how many people look at toes in the same way? Or do you know how to coordinate?
