As of 2017, we have officially reached the 25th anniversary of the release of, by far and away, one of Eddie Murphy's greatest contributions to cinema, Boomerang.

Boomerang was released to theaters in 1992 and, at the ripe old age of 8, consequentially, changed how I view both men and women alike. 

Upon this momentous occasion, I found it only necessary to provide a thorough assessment of how (and why) this film not only shaped me from a very early age, but has also had a palpable impression on black culture as a whole. 

There are mini spoilers all up and through here. Take heed.
