A popular debate in Black barbershops is, “Which film is better, Coming to America or Boomerang?” As a viewer, which film would you want to see a sequel for? RH: Coming to America is a classic, one of Eddie’s best. It’s scary to think how often I do the “Sexual Chocolate” exit gesture. I’d like to see sequels for both. Of course, I’ve thought a lot about a Boomerang sequel, and it would be awesome.
“I definitely believe in “write what you know” so that the authenticity of the character rings through him/her. But I also feel like there hasn’t been enough attention to our beautiful Sisters of all hues, from the fairest almond-hued ones to the most gorgeous ebony-hued. They have a story, too. If no one deems to tell it, their voices will go unheard, and that would be tragic.”
