More interesting than entertaining and too long by far.

In Boomerang Eddie Murphy straitjackets himself in an ill-fitting comedy vehicle that's desperately in need of a reality check.

The film is far too slick to be ineffective, but its attempts to play with the sex-war theme are often unbelievably crass.

It's not even funny. Nor does it contain half the wit or charm as the old Doris Day sex comedies it so resembles. In fact, it's downright mean-spirited toward women, as is Murphy's wont.
