Sweet-natured and goofy and funny in all the right places.

If Jump Tomorrow is any barometer, [Hopkins] should have a bright future.

A sweet little oddity that ultimately leaves you -- and George -- with a smile.

Top Critic

A delightfully deadpan comedy about the liberating power of love.

August 10, 2001
Orlando Sentinel
Top Critic

It cheerfully if often recklessly leaps across barriers of race, culture, custom and habit to assure viewers that love, after all, conquers all.

Doesn't so much charm as insinuate; like its female protagonist, it's under your skin before you know it.

Audience Reviews for Jump Tomorrow

What a sweet movie! It moves slowly, and in one sense it's predictable, but it's so simplistic that the smallest jokes earn the biggest laughs. A joy to watch, on one hand it feels like unorthodox film-making, and on the other it seems like the only difference between a major studio release and its relative obscurity was the financial backing... I could easily see Eugene Levy and Bill Murray doing this movie 10-20 years ago, but it might just be for the best that it is what it is. Great early work from Joel Hopkins (Last Chance Harvey), who I hope has hit his stride and will be rewarded with more work in the future. Seriously, watch this film, you'll love it without being able to explain it, it's great!

We got to watch this is French class! It's funny and fairly clean! The humor borders on the Napolean Dynamite type, but there's something charming about it. I love Gerald<3 I wish I could find this movie again...

After learning the lead singer of TV On The Radio was in this I had to see it. I'm so happy I did. It's a peaceful film and is also very relaxing. It's now on my long list of movies I'd love to share with others. Anything on that list I'll happily watch over again, and my God I know someone i'd like to watch this with right now :0 It's a very welcome and nice addition to my movie collection. Very much recommended.
