Every wedding film has to have some kind of a catch. Inter-racial weddings are a favorite, but Jumping the Broom is about an inter-class wedding. Sabrina Watson (Paula Patton) is from a wealthy family, while Jason Taylor (Laz Alonso) comes from a blue-collar family. When they decide to get married before their families have even met, there is a disaster waiting at the wedding. Jason’s mother (Loretta Devine) immediately clashes with Sabrina’s mother (Angela Bassett) and every detail becomes a battle.
There are some terrible moments, but overall this is exactly what you might expect from a wedding movie. It is light and fluffy entertainment, which is why there always seem to be a few of them in the first few months of the year. It is an annual release date for this particular type of film.
