Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's tempting to slight the effort as My Big Fat Gay Wedding, since the screenwriters follow a familiar template."
‑ Justin Berton, San Francisco Chronicle
"It might be helpful to think of the series and its spinoff as a male version of The Golden Girls. A young, gay, African American male version of The Golden Girls."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Jumping the Broom exalts an underserved audience yet Polk's discussion of the socio-economic connection of slavery and contemporary gay politics doesn't patronize them."
‑ Armond White, New York Press
"The lively, timely film plays like a soap opera on a big screen, has its awkward and uneven moments but delivers the goods."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"While there are some solid chuckles scattered throughout the film, Polk's heavy-handed political sloganeering is lifted straight from pamphlets, while his character development and plotting are clumsy and filled with holes."
‑ Ernest Hardy, L.A. Weekly
"Despite some drinking (with nary a hangover afterward) and a fling or two, the prevailing mood isnā(TM)t campy or disco-decadent. Rather the emphasis is squarely on heartfelt communication, monogamy and child rearing."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"The film version might be more adequately subtitled Jumping the Shark."
‑ Melissa Anderson, Time Out New York
