Inevitably, the squabbling of the two mothers spreads to the happy couple, who go through the motions of pretending to want to call everything off, but -- let's face it -- it's a fucking wedding movie, so we all know where this is going even before entering the theater. While I will concede that the film features wonderful cinematography and sharp production values, even the best eye candy matters very little in the face of a formulaic story with cheaply-drawn characters and lazy execution. The ensemble cast includes Meagan Good, DeRay Davis, Valarie Pettiford, and Mike Epps, but only Tasha Smith (a Tyler Perry veteran and the best part about the Why Did I Get Married? movies) gives us a reason to laugh, ever so slightly. As an actress, she's definitely a keeper and would ideally continue to go far with her career; unfortunately, Smith appears to have little to no desire to move on from movies like this one and the oeuvre of Perry. Finally, Jumping the Broom includes only one white character (with a name, that is), Amy the Wedding Planner (Julie Bowen), who just happens to be a total idiot. Mister Perry should be so proud.
