Jumping The Broom review

Another culture clash wedding comedy that fails to show us anything we haven't seen before

If you think most wedding-themed comedies are saccharine, vapid, and soulless, then Jumping The Broom will do nothing to change your point of view.

The ho-hum story finds two different but equally dysfunctional African-American families converging for a wedding on posh Martha’s Vineyard.

Cultures clash, sparks fly, soup gets spilled but, in the end, we all learn an important lesson about love, prayer, and forgiveness. Ick.

Mike Epps shines as a wisecracking uncle, but otherwise this extremely formulaic time-waster offers little beyond its lame Hallmark greeting-card platitudes.
