Ranitra C. (Glamourgirl) from LONG BEACH, CA
Reviewed on 6/17/2014...
Obviously for some, when you hear the title " Jumping the Broom", you can grasp what the premise of the film will consist of, but there is actually a lot more.

I found it to be funny, dramatic in parts and truthful, concerning certain results that occur when prominent families children, decide to wed, in their eyes, families from " the wrong side of the tracks".

Really takes a look at certain facades and how far people will go, to keep them up.

Great film for an afternoon, a bit stereotypical at times, but overall enjoyable and memorable to watch.
