According to www.examiner.com, “No one expected â€œJumping the Broomâ€ to contend with â€œThor,â€ or overtake â€œFast Fiveâ€ at the box office, and it didn\’t, but that doesn\’t mean that this small African-American romantic comedy didn\’t pull in decent numbers during its opening weekend.
“While â€œThorâ€ raked in $66 million this weekend, and â€œFast Fiveâ€ held onto the second spot with $32 million, â€œJumping the Broomâ€ came in third with $13.7 million, followed by another romantic comedy, â€œSomething Borrowed,â€ which made $13.1 million.”

It\’s message is positive but its plot isn\’t biblically aligned. According to Bishop Jakes, â€œWe have to have a conversation that goes into all the world!â€
