Double Header: Movie Night and Boomerangs In Pop Culture

Posted by Stephanie.

So just to recap: Eddie Murphy’s character is a man so successful with the ladies that he sends roses to seven of them.  Then he watches a not suitable for work make-up ad and meets up with his BFFs Martin Lawrence and David Alan Grier to discuss women.  Of course he leaves them to use a lame pick-up move on a woman with a dog.  Woofs are heard in the background (a very very subtle allusion to the fact that his character is a “dog,”  just in case we didn’t get it already.)

The big question in all of this is: what is Eddie Murphy’s undeniable sexual appeal?  It must be the soul patch…or the fact that he was in Coming to America.  Should you feel brave enough to continue, here is Part 2.

To expand on the idea of Boomerangs in Pop Culture, I am beginning the tradition of The Boomerang Blog’s Movie Night.  What better way to start than with the first segment of a truly terrible/fabulous movie called Boomerang?  Eddie Murphy’s comedy clearly hasn’t evolved in the last two decades, but at least he’s consistent.  Just like us.  So pop some popcorn and get ready to see a movie that showcases no actual boomerangs.

More segments from this movie will be posted throughout the week.
