A classic romcom that works; a film that flows somewhat awkwardly at the start, but once it finds its footing, it really captures the audience, as you delve into the fascinating tale of these characters from two different social standings, as it would appear.
The film opens as the trailer does, with Paula Patton (Sabrina) unbuttoning her bra, and being told to Shhh by her partner from the previous evening, who is engaged in a conversation with his actual girlfriend/wife. And then she goes into a prayer, a speech with God to save her cookies for her husband to be. Next, she is driving in her car, and hits Laz Alonzo (Jason).A split second later, they are on a date, leaving an opera, as discussion of a possible move to China is brought up. After a bit of arguing, he drops to his knee and places a ring on her finger, »
Paul Patton in Jumping the Broom
Photo: TriStar Pictures A few days ago I was doing some updates to the database, making sure things were current and I had all the movies I needed to have listed in their proper place and I came across a movie called Jumping the Broom. I hadn't heard a single word of its existence and it was already set for a May 6, 2011 release. At that point I assumed it must be some dumb teen comedy, but nope. While I've never heard of the film's director, Salim Akil, the cast is quite notable including Angela Bassett, Paula Patton, Laz Alonso, Tasha Smith, Julie Bowen, DeRay Davis, Meagan Good and Mike Epps.
Of course, I have no idea how good it will or won't be, but I was shocked when I saw those names and hadn't heard of the film. The synopsis tells us it won't »

Forgetting Sarah Marshall was riske, silly, funny and rather genius in my opinion and the same team behind that movie have come together to create Get Him to the Greek. The movie brings Aldous Snow back to the big screen in the form of Russell Brand, reuniting him with Jonah Hill and directed Nicholas Stoller. It also stars Rose Byrne, Tyler McKinney, Zoe Salmon, Pink, Christina Aguilera, Colm Meaney, Aziz Ansari, Kristen Bell, T.J. Miller, DeRay Davis and Chris Wilson.
Universal have released the full first 5 minutes on Funny or Die and I’ve embedded the video below for your viewing pleasure. Let us know what you think in the comments below. Is this a movie you would have seen anyway or has this first 5 minutes now whet your appetite for more?
Get him to the Greek is released in the UK 25th June and in the Us 4th June. »

Fans of the sometimes controversial Boondocks series are anxiously awaiting the May 2nd return of the animated Aaron McGruder TV show to Adult Swim. Unfortunately, their happiness may be short-lived.
The Boondocks revolves around a small family that's moved from Chicago to the suburbs of Washington, DC. Young Huey Freeman (Regina King) is the voice of reason and is often mocked by his trouble-making eight-year-old brother Riley (King) and their "Granddad" (John Witherspoon). Others in the cast include Gary Anthony Williams, Cedric Yarbrough, Jill Talley, Gabby Soleil, Kevin Michael Richardson, Jim Meskimen, Carl Jones, DeRay Davis, Affion Crockett, and Corey Burton.
After a two year hiatus, it was announced back in December that the animated series would be returning soon. We now know that it'll be kicking off season three on Sunday, May 2nd.
