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 didnâ€™t, but that doesnâ€™t mean that this small African-American romantic comedy didnâ€™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.”
Unlike a number of â€œChristian-themedâ€ films, Bishop Jakes confirmed that â€œJumping the Broomâ€ is a movie produced by Christian that doesnâ€™t necessarily target â€œChristianâ€ audiences only. Itâ€™s message is positive but its plot isnâ€™t biblically aligned. According to Bishop Jakes, â€œWe have to have a conversation that goes into all the world!â€
