Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Sweet-natured and goofy and funny in all the right places."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"A delightfully deadpan comedy about the liberating power of love."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"A formulaic road film (about finding oneself) with some possibility of being unpredictable until its predictable sweet ending."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"These are just stock characters without an original thought in their heads."
‑ Jean Lowerison, San Diego Metropolitan
"The characters are vivid and endearing."
‑ Robert W. Butler, Kansas City Star
"If Jump Tomorrow is any barometer, [Hopkins] should have a bright future."
‑ Jane Sumner, Dallas Morning News
"It cheerfully if often recklessly leaps across barriers of race, culture, custom and habit to assure viewers that love, after all, conquers all."
‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"Fresh points of view and lovable characters make Jump Tomorrow more than just a formula romance."
‑ Joshua Tanzer, Offoffoff
"This unpretentious, entertaining little comedy of culture clashes marks a solid feature debut for British writer/director Joel Hopkins."
‑ Keith H. Brown, Eye for Film
"I loved Jump Tomorrow ... for a heart that beats with wisdom and warmth and nary a trace of contrivance or sticky manipulation."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"A sweet little oddity that ultimately leaves you -- and George -- with a smile."
‑ Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"Doesn't so much charm as insinuate; like its female protagonist, it's under your skin before you know it."
‑ Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press
"George is one of the great characters in recent memory and, along with the comedy of Gerard and the free-spiritedness of Alicia, the film works on almost all levels."
‑ Anthony Miele, Film Threat
"Though the lackadaisical style becomes tiresome after a while, the film is ultimately held together by star-in- the-making Adebimpe."
‑ Neil Smith, BBC.com
"One of those stories where two opposites meet and learn important lessons from each other, but it doesn't feel like a lesson movie."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
