Movie Info

Eddie Murphy plays Marcus Graham, a hotshot ad exec 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. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    The story of a womanizer Marcus (Eddie Murphy) who is a notorious player that dumps his victims after getting them in the sack. He finally meets his match when Jacqueline Broyer (Robin Givens) comes into his life. Meanwhile Angela (Halle Berry) is nuts about him, but he doesn't know she's alive. Hilarious performance from Martin Lawrence and Chris Rock! There is a true lesson to be learned here, sometimes The Player get played!

    It's not so clever but when it's funny, it's funny.

    LOVE this movie! Definitely a classic, and definitely one of Eddie Murphy's better movies. This film should make men appreciate that double standards almost always sway to their advantage. Oh, and Grace Jones is the business!
