This is a rather mundane attempt at a most repeated formula.

Worth watching!

The story is as boring as a soup opera and the film is severely lacking in the comedy side of things, the things that are supposed to be funny are just not.

even though some were quite predictable in terms of character, they still worked out well.

The worst movie Eddie have played in - try too hard and don't deliver .

This was the WORST movie I have ever sat through.

Although, she was a perfect princess of innocence, but this dull script, and those endless digressions, wasted her utterly.

A winning and original take on the Battle of the Sexes that is entertaining from start to finish.

and an honorable mention for the chance to watch Robin Givens and Grace Jones strut around looking absolutely stunning.

Although the intense performance that she delivered at the scene of her emotional explosion was the best, most strong anything, of this movie, but still one of the worst movies that she was in!

The scenes of Murphy with the female characters are boring and repetitive.

If you really are into watching movie-length commercials an evening with "9 1/2 weeks" might be more enjoyable.

So, it's funny to see so many 1 ratings, and people reviewing it as if it were the worst movie ever made.

Bottom-line, Boomerang has too much romance, is plain boring due to the lack of comedy and the story just wasn't very interesting.

I almost walked out of the theater!

Simply put, it's well worth watching.

Anyhow, it seemed like many incomplete movies in one, or boring stray comedy.

Actually the movie itself doesn't know, otherwise it could've been more coherent, enjoyable and complete.

The worst movie EVER .

Each of them have talent in their own right, but are normally type-cast actors who are predictable in terms of what to expect.

I highly recommend it if you are an Eddie Murphy fan and can appreciate some raw black comedy.

One of only two movies I have ever walked out on.

True some of it is plain silly and it is quite predictable but it is pretty enjoyable and quite sexy too!

- The sex scenes are boring, don't deliver.

Lawrence and Rock are well used in small roles but Kitt and Grace are pointless and stupid cameos.

Some humor, though mostly boring .

The long conversations scenes which with the tepid, nearly dead, direction so the truly dull pace-the whole thing looked close to pointless for most of the time.
