    What Murphy's doing isn't acting; it's masturbation. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Murphy seems committed to pushing his hostile vision, and that in itself is interesting. [01 Jul 1992] show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    The movie, though, is more of the same: another current comedy with want-to-see elements that fails to deliver the goods. [01 Jul 1992] show more

    The real surprise of the movie is Eddie Murphy, who finds his character and stays with him. show more

    Dave Kehr Chicago Tribune

    Boomerang, a sleek, confident and very funny urban comedy that may not entirely overcome Murphy's more discomfiting tendencies, but at least manages to put them to good use. [01 Jul 1992] show more

    More interesting than entertaining and too long by far. show more

    Jay Carr Boston Globe

    The result is a megabudget "House Party" -- amiable, colorful, filled with glamour and style. [01 Jul 1992] show more

    Occasionally, Murphy cuts loose with an ad-libbed riff that's almost funny, but then it's back to the slim-fast plot and the stick-on crudities. [03 Jul 1992] show more

    This is cornily predictable stuff, but it raises itself on a number of counts, with Murphy's transformation from a self-assured cocksman to bewildered, lovesick drip being approached with greater gusto than might be expected. show more

    Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle

    It's not even funny. Nor does it contain half the wit or charm as the old Doris Day sex comedies it so resembles. show more
