Funny, fresh, and right on target!, 24 July 2006
Author: DarleneTipton from United States

I grew up in Calaveras County, attending the Frog Jump every year, and no one has ever captured the nuttiness and fun of it nearly as well as this film. It follows several serious frog jockeys from training (yes, frogs can be trained) through the final competition, and at the screening where I saw it the audience was laughing and loving every moment. Previous attempts at filming this have ended up merely eccentric and dry; "Jump!" actually goes into the minds of the competitors, the locals, and (dare I say it?) the frogs. Even if you're not familiar with the Mark Twain story, you'll come to an understanding of why this particular contest is so near and dear to the locals. A picture of true Americana -- a joy to watch!
