Go Ahead and JUMP, 22 May 2007
Author: ophelia_necro from United States

My Grandpa started taking me to frog jumping contests when I was 5. I really enjoyed this documentary. It captured the essence of the event very well. For someone not familiar with the event first hand (until taking on the project) the director Justin Bookey did an excellent job representing the historical elements of the contest and Angels Camp; from the Mark Twain story that started it all to the traditional family event that it has become. I recommend this movie especially to people who have been to the Calaveras County Fair and experienced the Jumping Frog Jubilee but people that enjoy Gold Rush era Californian history, Mark Twain and of course FROGS! will also find this movie entertaining.
