Boomerang ... One of the most underrated romantic comedies ever made ... EDDIE MURPHY, MARTIN LAWRENCE, TISHA CAMPBELL, ROBIN GIVENS and HALLE BERRY. Talk about a wealth of talent.

For those who haven't experienced this gem of so-called, "Black Cinema", here's the crux of the film: Eddie is Marcus Graham, an advertsing exec who is having sexual relations with every other woman in the advertising agency. Then he sends each woman flowers and cards saying, "Thinking only of you". How smooth is that?

Marcus is pretty much unstoppable until he meets his match in the form of Jaqueline (played marvelously by ROBIN GIVENS). Her firm merges with his and she becomes his boss. Now the dog of dogs suddenly begins panting after this hard to tame woman; totally oblivious to the fact that sweet, cute, but average Angela could be his one, true, soulmate.

This is an amazing slice of early 90s film, back when many considered Eddie Murphy to be the king of the box office, Robin Givens was a hit sitcom actress thanks to a little show called, Head Of The Class. Halle and Martin were beginning to develop their powers. And speaking of Martin Lawrence, look for a hilarious series of profane, yet funny cameos featuring his tv wife, Tisha Campbell.

In addition, the soundtrack featues the pairing of CHARLIE WILSON (of the 70s Funk band, The GAP BAND) with his sound-a-like heir of that time period, AARON HALL (formerly of the hit 90s group, GUY). As well, you'll find the historic chart-topper, End of The Road by the incomparable BOYZ II MEN and the debut of TONI BRAXTON on the hot dance jam, Give U My Heart, a duet with the one and only smooth balladeer, Babyface ... Good stuff.

Yep, that's Halle Berry

    I love this movie. It had so many funny parts and Eddie Murphy was so smooth in it. I like Halle Berry in it. She transforms from a shy hopeful girl into a woman with confidence. It had so many funny parts in it too ith David Alan Grier, Martin Lawrence, John Witherspoon, and even Grace Jones. Good movie to review and you're right it is underrated.
