I enjoyed it. It was a half hour too long...but I thought it was funny, charming, and it reminded me how much I like Eddie Murphy.

A star vehicle and, with a return to form, Eddie Murphy has the juice to carry it.

An attempt at a more sophisticated, grown-up comedy for Murphy, focusing on adults in a workplace, and on adult, sexual relationships.

The cop-out conclusion doesn't dilute the playfulness the Hudlins are always interested in providing. I only wish they had the opportunity to work with Murphy again.

Then there's the input from Warrington and Reginald Hudlin, producer and director respectively, who succeed in creating a comedy which, unusually for a Murphy film, also exists around him.

The general idea is to exploit a certain amount of role reversal, and Reginald Hudlin, who directed House Party, does a fairly good job of making this fun.

Givens, Lawrence and Berry all put in enjoyable performances, and while Murphy can no longer match those memorable early roles, he's on good form here.

This movie has a charming Eddie Murphy, a slick and grown-up comedian. Most of his movies have no trace of this man.

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.

Boomerang is the funniest, most sophisticated movie of Eddie Murphy's career.

Whatever [Murphy] was thinking during the dark days of his career slump, it seems to have paid off handsomely.
