Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Boomerang is an Eddie Murphy romantic comedy that is focused on sex, but contains very little nudity. Characters discuss sex, ranging from ways to win girls to body parts, in nearly every scene. Some characters sleep with multiple partners, and other characters openly try to seduce one another. Aside from this, the movie is filled with fairly typical Eddie Murphy language, although most of the words are in reference to sex. The movie tries to be a bit more sophisticated than the usual Murphy vehicle, so it's light on toilet humor. It has some historical interest, as it comes from an era in which African-American movies were booming, but it's not for kids; it isn't likely to interest them, anyway.
- Sexual Content
- There's almost no nudity, but it's wall-to-wall sex talk. The main character is a single womanizer who sleeps with many women and then loses interest. He finally meets a woman he likes, and sleeps with her several times. But then he falls in love with one final woman, sleeps with her, and spends the rest of the film trying to win her. Several other women characters flirt with him. In-between characters talk about sex almost constantly, when it's going to happen, with whom, various body parts, and all kinds of language. Both women and men "climax" while having sex (nothing shown). One partial breast is seen.
- Two male characters get into a brief argument over a girl.
- The language is generally toned down from the usual Eddie Murphy vehicle, but "f--k" is heard more than once, and "s--t" is used several times. We also hear "p---y" several times. Additionally, there's "bitch," "orgasm," "dick," "damn," "ho," "vagina," "lesbo," "balls," "ass," "come," "merde" ("s--t" in French). Additionally, there's the "N" word and a reference to "jungle bunnies."
- Social Behavior
- The main character is a womanizer who never commits to a relationship. When he finally falls in love with his boss, she gives him a taste of his own medicine, making him learn how it feels to be treated as an object. With this lesson under his belt, he finally falls in love for real and commits.
