Jumping the Broom - Movie Review

Jumping the Broom (PG-13) 108 minutes B-
Bourgeois vs Working Class

Starring Angela Bassett, Paula Patton, Laz Alonso, Loretta Devine, Meagan Good, Tasha Smith, Julie Bowen, Romeo Miller, DeRay Davis, Valarie Pettiford, Mike Epps, and Brian Stokes Mitchell.

Jumping the Broom is a faith-based romantic dramedy that I found very likable, occasionally laugh-out-loud funny and entertaining (there were a couple twists I didn't see coming).  Yet, the film also seemed longer than 108 minutes and at times felt extremely contrived and unfamiliar. 

I'm glad I saw Jumping the Broom, and Paula Patton is always easy on the eyes, but this one didn't linger long after leaving the multiplex.

Recommended for fans of African-American Romantic Comedy/Drama.
