I like movie trailers. So sue me.

“Jumping The Broom”: A Second Trailer Promises A DECENT Romantic Comedy?!

leave a comment »

Judging by this trailer, it appears that Jumping the Broom appears to be an actually decent rom-com, and in comparison to another romantic comedy called Something Borrowed, it could be the funniest romantic film ever. Something Borrowed is about a cliche love triangle, which means that Kate Hudson stars. Of course.

Getting back to the matter at hand, Jumping the Broom is about a woman who falls in love with a man (in, albeit, an awkward  meet cute) and their families converge in Martha’s Vineyard for the wedding. The Watsons are high-society and very rich, and the Taylors are down-home.

Contrived as it sounds, the trailer actually made me chuckle. The scene in which a woman speaks French provides an (unintentional?) non sequitur, and Loretta Devine’s facial expression when the same woman says she is “looking for Barack and Michelle” after seeing where the wedding takes place never fails to make me laugh. And, of course, JULIE BOWEN! From “Modern Family“!

See what I’m saying? Decent rom-com!

Jumping the Broom hits theaters on May 6th…the same weekend as… *sigh* Something Borrowed. Great timing, Sony. Nice one.
