Can we talk about how much Jubi hates Black Hollywood right now? Remember back in the day when we had good or at least decent Black films? During the days of Boomerang, Love Jones, The Best Man, heck even Brown Sugar? What happened to all the cute Black comedies/rom-coms that were successful? The only one I can remember is Just Wright & it did less-than stellar numbers at the box office. Sadly every Black film lately either has Tyler Perry attached (and yall know I can’t stand him! UGH) or a Black man in drag (cue the latest installment of the Big Momma’s House series *sigh*).
The trailer for this new film Jumping the Broom has been released, and I’m so excited! Finally a Black film that doesn’t have any Black men in drag, no shucking & jiving for the camera, and most importantly, NO TYLER PERRY! Looks like a great cast, I love love love Angela Bassett, plus Paula Patton, Laz Alonzo, and Lorettta Devine. That non-acting Megan Good is in this film, but I suppose that’s ok.
Now, all yall better go see it! Let’s support our films!
Here’s the trailer in case you missed it:
