The legacy of Eddie Murphy’s 1992 romantic comedy, Boomerang, is definitely one worth noting. The flick featured a predominantly black cast, it introduced a young Halle Berry and a then-unknown singer, Toni Braxton.
The triple-platinum soundtrack is arguably one of the best movie soundtracks of all time. Boomerang has been in Black Hollywood’s top 10 movies since its release so it’s no surprise that Halle Berry and Lena Waithe are reprising it.
It’s safe to say that Gabrielle Union also considers this a classic movie because she slightly shaded Entertainment Weekly for saying the rom-com was underrated. “Underrated by who exactly???” she swiftly responded, implying that a large, important demographic of people give this movie high ratings.
