Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 10/22/1999
"...[Givens and Berry] bring out Murphy's silky best..." -- Rating: B
USA Today - 07/01/1992
"...Substantial roles for attractive actresses of every age and image..."
Entertainment Weekly - 07/10/1992
"...The movie has a bright, candy-colored look and a nudge-nudge eroticism that recall the ingeniously fluffy sex comedies of the '50s..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 07/01/1992
"...It shows a kinder, gentler, funnier Eddie Murphy than we've seen in recent years -- a comic actor who can go for little laughs as well as the big ones, and build a character at the same time..."

Product Description:

Marcus Graham (Eddie Murphy) is a successful young marketing executive who has never lacked for attention from women. The cocky ladies' man views each new conquest as another notch on the holster of his oversized ego. But one day the tables are turned, and he falls for a high-powered female executive who treats him the same way he's been treating women for the last 15 years. Marcus realizes that it's not so fun to be on the other side of objectification and rejection, and he soon finds himself becoming a quivering bundle of insecurities. The question is whether he will learn enough from the experience to see that true love has been right under his nose all along.

Production Notes:

  • Color by DeLuxe; shot on location in New York City in Panavision.
  • Eddie Murphy was reportedly paid $12 million for his role in the film.
  • This is the first major studio project by brothers Warrington and Reginald Hudlin, the producing/directing team who made the indy hit "House Party" (USA/1990), as well as several short documentaries. The Hudlins viewed several screwball comedies from the 1940s before filming "Boomerang". "We wanted to capture the spirit of those classic films -- the wit, the intelligence and the energy -- in a contemporary setting," says Reginald.
  • Paramount, in partnership with the Black Filmmaker Foundation, created ten paid observer positions for young African-Americans. Each one interned in a different department to become familiar with the behind-the-scenes world of film production. 50% of the production staff were people of color.
  • The film should not be confused with "Boomerang!" (1947), directed by Elia Kazan and starring Dana Andrews and Lee J. Cobb.
