Best Summer Date Ideas: Movie Dates


'Two for the 9pm show, please': 10 summer date movies worth checking out.

#21: 'Jumping the Broom' (May 6)


STARS: Paula Patton, Laz Alonso, Angela Bassett

While the urban market is becoming more and more monopolized by the looming Tyler Perry-ocracy, this romantic dramedy should be a breath of fresh air. Centering around a woman named Sabrina (Patton) who finds the perfect guy in Jason (Alonso) only to see her plans for marital bliss threatened when their two very different families converge on Martha's Vineyard for their wedding. Dealing head-on with issues of class and African American heritage, including the antiquated practice of the title, it features two bright young leads on the cusp of stardom.

Up Next: 'Bridesmaids'
