Product Description

The film based on the LOGO TV series finds the characters' relationships cracking under pressure during a weekend wedding getaway in Martha's Vineyard. Bonuses: featurettes, deleted scenes.

Amazon.com

Based on the popular television series, Noah’s Arc: Jumping the Broom is a feature film that continues the narrative thread of the second series, with all the luscious drama that one would expect. In this, Noah Nichols (Darryl Stephens) and his ARC: Alex Kirby (Rodney Chester), Ricky Davis (Christian Vincent), and Chance Counter (Douglas Spearman), retreat to Martha’s Vineyard for Noah’s intimate marriage to Wade Robinson (Jensen Atwood). While Alex’s hubby, Trey (Gregory Kieth), video chats from home to babysit their newly adopted Ethiopian child, Chance brings his husband, Eddie (Jonathan Julian), and Ricky is accompanied by the 19-year old Brandon (Gary Leroi Gray) for some lighthearted fling-dating. But as the four couples hole up and attend separate bachelor parties, each relationship begins to unravel. Alex’s pill-popping throughout the weekend, compiled with surprise drop-ins from Noah’s boss, Brandy (Jennia Fredrique) and rapper Baby Gat (Jason Steed), don’t help Noah and Wade work through last-minute jitters. Humor abounding, many of the deep questions about what marriage and commitment mean are filtered through scenes about stress related to coming-out and what promiscuity symbolizes to gay men. Appearances by two moms, Noah’s (Suanne Coy) and Wade’s (Tonya Pinkins), also make for some fun, and tense, situation comedy. Jumping the Broom has all the verve of the series, so if you are already a fan, this romantic tale will not disappoint. --Trinie Dalton

So much of each character has come into their own.

Story lines could have developed into more but as it was it was GREAT.

I just finished watching the movie and it was FABULOUS. I would recommend getting the video at soon as it releases. I will be doing just that. Jumping the Broom was a great love story. It had all elements of a great movie. It was heart-warming, and funny, sad and a feel good movie. I have but two negative comments, the first being it was way to short and I would have loved more. Story lines could have developed into more but as it was it was GREAT. My next negative is where was WILSON CRUZ. Not having this final and important member to the movie was extremely DISAPPOINTING and would not have destroyed the story line. I will purchase this movie and I am going again to see it.

I love the series. I was frankly a little nervous that I wouldn't like the movie, but I shouldn't have been concerned. "Jumping" has all the warmth, humor, and love that the series had, just in a slightly different format and location.

Noah and Wade have evidently reconciled (since the series abruptly ended) and they and the boys have assembled (minus a couple characters) on Martha's Vineyard at Wade's family vacation home (an ocean-side mansion, of course) to celebrate their wedding. Whether they will actually tie the knot (or jump the broom) is anybody's guess, and they don't actually seem too sure about it either. Noah's friends don't help as they add their own flavors of sexual tension, jealousy, their own couples' problems, and a lot of snide comments. Add to that a new young guy just coming to grips with what being gay is all about and he acts as a catalyst for a lot of self-disclosure and good discussion amongst the characters.

My favorite scene-stealer is Noah's boss, the name-dropping diva who gets all the good lines along with "Curtis," aka "Baby Gap" who shows up in hopes of sweeping Noah off his feet.

The editing of this movie is tight and spot-on and there is hardly a moment that isn't packed with all the stuff you loved about the series. The characters have all aged well (i.e. they are smokin' hot) and seem to have had no trouble going back into their "Noah" characters.

It's funny, it's moving, and it feels real; it's a study in relationships and friendship, courtship and love. After seeing the movie, I have ordered the soundtrack. It would have been wise to order them together from the beginning. HIGHLY recommended. Enjoy.

Earlier this year, a big screen adaptation of Sex & The City was released. Actually, that's not true, a ninety minute advert for Products was released, with the characters from Sex & The City grafted on to make people watch.

Noah's Arc is often referred to - for better or worse - as a black, gay SATC. So, when I heard the news that the prematurely cancelled series would also be bursting onto cinema screens, I had my doubts. Television and film are very different beasts, and one doesn't necessarily translate into another. Just look at SATC - a depressing, cynical exercise in vulgar consumerism.

When Noah's Arc first appeared on our screens, it was unique: a show that wasn't about white gay men. It was Queer As Folk in colour, and funnier. The series suffered under the tyranny of network television censorship (that NA was as hot as it was is a miracle) and a miniscule running time. But it was bursting with heart and soul, and audiences fell in love with Noah, Ricky, Alex and Chance - not to mention their numerous sexy suitors.

Season two ended on a cliff-hanger, but with criminal disregard for the loyalty of the viewing audience, Logo cancelled the series, just when it was finding its feet.

Let's not be bitter, because we have something to celebrate. Noah and Wade are getting married! We might not have a Season 3 (yet), but we've got Jumping The Broom. So what happened after the car crash? Did Noah wake up and find Wade in the shower? Did the whole of season two not happen? Was it all a dream?

Don't be silly, kids. The movie is set at some point after the crash, which Wade survived. That's not a spoiler - he's all over the publicity photos, and Noah's Arc without Wade would be like SATC without Big. But what of Dre, I hear you cry!

I'm co-signing with reviewer Tracey. Heterosexual female totally in love with Noah's Arc. I have season's 1 & 2 and cannot wait for the movie to come out! I wasn't able to view in theater's cuz it never came to my city. This show has something for everyone because their topics are so diverse and real, plus it deals with the day to day struggle of love like everybody else. I would also co-sign and say that my hubby is a homophobic but it's amazing that he always managed to come into the room while I was watching my discs and know every character and episode too, so I commend Mr. Polk's writing skills in opening minds to acceptance.

It was moving, and awfully funny. It was odd in that it wasn't a typical gay movie, where being gay is at the heart of everything. You almost completely forget their orientation, and you just sit back and watch a movie about relationships and love. I highly recommend this movie!

As a huge fan of the original television series, I was taken aback by this melodramatic and stereotypical film adaptation. It's not to say that 'Jumping the Broom' completely loses the general appeal of the television show, but character continuation, nuance, and a solid plot is sacrificed for overblown plot devices, bad dialogue, and unbelievable scenarios.

Darryl Stephens (while I love him) seems to have been sleep-walking as 'Noah' in the film. Originally, 'Noah' was to 'Arc' as 'Carrie' was to 'Sex in the City', but in the film he's more like second-billing than the flagship. Stephens gives his character no presence, which wasn't the case during the television show.

The character of 'Wade' played by Jensen Atwood does a complete 180 in the film. During the T.V. series, 'Wade' was the hyper-masculine, bi-sexual type...in the film, certain apparel and actions the character wears are wholly different, and unexplained.
Rodney Chester as 'Alex' seems more the flagship of the group in the film, and Chester vividly brings his character to life (as always). But creator Patrik-Ian Polk didn't really give 'Alex' a lot of important things to do in the film. That coupled with the overblown, over-the-top (more so than even in the T.V. series) persona of 'Alex' in the film, is truly puzzling.

Lastly, Douglas Spearman as 'Chance' is what his character has always been, 'blah'. His subplot with "husband" 'Eddie' and pupil 'Brandon' is truly a waste of screen time. It's nonsensical, lame, anti-climatic, and unbelievable (when/if you see the film, the resolution between these characters is ridiculous). The actor who played 'Brandon' definitely needs work on his dramatic delivery.

Patrick Ian Polk's 1st movie - Punks (Noah-esque)
I've been looking all over for this movie. I was under the impression that the movie was released on DVD.
