You're Invited: Behind the Scenes
Honoring the Tradition of Jumping the Broom

Editorial Reviews

Producers T. D. Jakes and Tracey E. Edmonds invite you to the marriage of Sabrina Watson (Paula Patton, Precious ) and Jason Taylor (Laz Alonso, Fast & Furious), who just might be the perfect couple. Unfortunately, their families are a perfect recipe for disaster. Mrs. Watson (Angela Bassett) has an upper-crust sensibility that matches her family’s Martha’s Vineyard estate, where Jason’s straight-out-of-Brooklyn mom (Loretta Devine) seems utterly out of place. When the families gather for Jason and Sabrina’s wedding, it becomes clear that each side has its traditions... and its secrets. When uptown meets downtown, the truth comes out – and only one question remains. Will this couple endure the hysterical and harrowing trials of love and finally jump the broom?

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it from beginning to end May 8, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Update 9/7/2011: I bought the film and listened to the commentary. It was so dreadfully boring. I'm always hesitant to listen to commentary when the director is the main speaker because they bring up all this stuff that viewers truly don't care about (ex. tent leaning to the side, boat in the distance, why a certain color was used). But this director just went on and on with these long-winded lectures about culture, skin complexion and relationships. I wanted him to talk about the actual movie, but I felt like I was sitting through a motivational speak, which would've been cool if that was what I was looking for. I liked the playful arguing and friendly flirting between Laz Alonso and Paula Patton though. I did learn a few things like Tasha didn't know how to swim, Mike Epps hurt his leg and like a trooper kept going and Paula Patton's obsession with her breath. These were those funny quirks I wanted to hear about. Oddly enough, Romeo was never acknowledged during the commentary (unless I missed it), but all the other actors were. I wondered why, but every time Romeo came up, the director was back into another lecture. My opinion: Just watch the film without the commentary.

Cons: Absolutely none (Edit: 9/7 minus the commentary)!

Pros: I loved this movie. From the previews, we already know that two people are getting married, and their families are from two different classes. What I was worried about was the non-elite group would be extra ghetto, stereotypical, loud and obnoxious, basically everything that awful "Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family" was. Instead we got an intelligent group of blue collar workers with a couple family members who just weren't impressed with the bells and whistles.

5.0 out of 5 stars LAUGH OUT LOUD FUNNY May 29, 2011
At the risk of sounding prejudice, I saw this movie with a theater full of black people, which I contend is the best way to enjoy this movie as the audience reaction was perhaps more enjoyable than the movie. Paula Patton plays Sabrina Watson who has prayed to God to meet the right man. She gets her sign when she runs into (with her car) Jason Taylor (Laz Alonso). After dating for 5 months they opt to get married. Sabrina's family is wealthy and act like "white people." They frown on black culture. Jason's mom works for the post office and takes anger management classes. When the families get together for the first time for the wedding, there is a clash of personalities and cultures as Jason's mom (Loretta Devine) reminds the bride's family they are still black. The phrase "jumping the broom" was new to me. It is what black people traditionally do at weddings, dating back to the time of slavery. Since slaves were not allowed to marry, they would perform their own marriage ceremony by jumping the broom.

By having the bride's family be black also, the film could do more with the cultural clash and get away with it than if it was a black-white wedding. For instance, the groom's family wants to do the Electric Slide, a nearly time-honored tradition at black weddings. The bride's family rejects the idea to wit the groom's family responds, "So I suppose you are going to do the River Dance?" This would never work with a black-white wedding, but works remarkably well with two black families, judging from the roar from the audience.

Oh yes. And the happy wedding couple have not yet consummated their relationship and everyone knows it and thinks it is odd. And the bride's family has a few secrets. The low point was when Jason's mom plays the trump card. The movie shifts from funny to awkward.

No swearing. No sex. No nudity (bra/panties). Adult themes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Twenty stars if they had it! May 8, 2011
By Flower
This movie is so awesome in every aspect! This movie is filled with comedy, drama, love and inspiration and many more things that impact our everyday life. I could not believe the feeling of joy that this movie left me with.

My mother, sister, and I went to see this movie today for mothers day and this movie did not disappoint. Bishop Jakes and the characters of this movie out did them selves. Mike Epps was soooooooo funny to me in this movie! To me he put on a great show as did the other characters.

This movie was so good to us that we wanted to see it again at midnight... I can not wait until this movie comes out on DVD, as I plan to watch this movie over and over again!

We needed a good clean movie with comedy like this to make us laugh, after all laughter is the best medicine!

I also can not begin to tell you about the scenery in this movie.. It was breath taking!

Each and everyone will be able to relate to both families, I love the story line as it felt so real! I felt like I was there with the characters just waiting for the next incident to unfold!

This movie has great characters and lots of fun and unfolding events that will keep you on the edge of your seat or rolling on the floor laughing! Everyone in the movie theater was laughing and carrying on at the comedy and great acting by the characters in this movie.

If you have not seen Jumping the broom, you need to get out and go see it right now... You are missing out... I could not wait to write a review about this move, as it is that good!

I wish that more movies like this would be made.. This is just great clean family fun at its best!
