This movie was an exciting roller coaster ride of laughs and some mighty fine actresses too. Knocked it out of the ballpark with this one! What a delicious and amazing cast. (((CLASSIC)))

There needs to be a deluxe HD Blu-Ray release, with new interviews with the cast and crew!  A documentary about "the making of" and the film's enduring appeal!  Audio commentary with Mr. Reggie and Eddie!
There can be a special release party with all sorts of cool folks! Reunite the folks who were on the soundtrack to perform live! Everyone would want to attend!

This can happen!  Why not?!??!   :D

I say all the time Boomerang is as fine a grown-up, romantic comedy that has ever been made!  I'll keep saying and not just because it's my personal favorite, but because I want to see it recognized as such.  Directing, performances, writing, cinematography... everything was on point down to the dude in the ticket booth... "I know this!"  Perfect!  My two cents.

Peace,

Mont

Really would like them to do a screening at the Alamo Theater for the anniversary.

My man Irv Dottin was in the booth.  He was a young man from Cambridge from one of my student films.  No rehearsal, just threw in the scene with no dialogue and told him to wing it.

Wow!  That's cool to know!  I loved that scene.  The interaction is kind of mirrored later on between Eddie and Halle's young student who was explaining her painting... "Thank you, for your interpretation."  Hilarious!

Loved the two jewelry bootleggers too!  "...brother, that's a nice watch!"   8)
