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?

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.

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!

I saw this movie on opening weekend and I can't begin to say how much I loved it. It was funny and wholesome and sexy without being over-the-top or inappropriate. As soon as it started showing on Starz I have watched it almost every day (sometimes twice a day). It's been too long since I've loved a movie this much, because there simply aren't many like this being made anymore. Most of the ones out now are filled with so much violence or sex or just silliness that they're almost unbearable to watch, and forget being able to watch them with your children. But my son and I can sit and watch Jumping the Broom without me having to worry about him hearing or seeing something he shouldn't. And that's refreshing. I even loved the soundtrack!
I liked Paula Patton before, but I love her now. She's such a great actress. And Laz Alonzo has grown so much over the years, and come a long way since his days hosting on BET. Loretta Devine has played many 'Mama' roles but this was a stretch from what I'm used to seeing her in. She effectively made me dislike her. Tasha Smith was endearing and a far (and welcome) cry from her all-too-familiar as the angry black woman (Why Did I Get Married?, For Better or Worse, The Game, etc). Romeo was smooth and sexy in his role as Sebastian, and while him and Tasha Smith's character Shonda was a bit of a stretch for me, they worked well together. The actor who played the father, Gregory Watson, looked way familiar to me and then I realized he was the one who played Cam Winston on Frasier, and Trevor on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. He was awesome. And Angela Bassett was outstanding, as usual. They actually made me want to learn French! I could keep going but all of the actors in the movie were great, in my opinion.
