Boy meets Girl. Boy falls in love with Girl. Everything is romantic and perfect. They get married and live happily ever after. Typical love story, right? Wrong! Not so with the hilarious yet deep film, “Jumping the Broom.”
We saw “Jumping the Broom” at a special screening in the Sony Building in New York last night and I have to say that it was a breath of fresh air. Not only did it deal with the issues that couples face when they come from families with two vastly different socioeconomic backgrounds, life experiences, and priorities, it dealt with the issues of parental influence, unmet expectations, family secrets, commitment, and so much more. It somehow managed to make me laugh out loud and think deeply at the same time.
Poignant scenes, lighthearted moments, excellent scenery and a stellar cast are only a few reasons why you should run, not walk, to see this movie when it comes out on May 6. We know we will be.
Of course, we wouldn’t be who we are if we didn’t tell you that you just might be able to get a few ideas for your stunning wedding, from the gorgeous engagement ring to the dresses and the décor, prepare to be inspired. You may begin your countdown!
