Jumping the Broom takes a different comedic turn as featured in the Los Angeles Times

The makers of “Jumping the Broom” are looking for a leap of faith. One of those other films opening this weekend against the powerhouse “Thor,” the African American comedy about two socioeconomically opposite families who clash when they meet at a lavish wedding appears at first glance to be a lightweight contender. The low-budget Tristar Pictures release has no A-list stars, is not in 3-D and lacks any characters with the superhero strength of the hammer-wielding Norse god.
