Movie Info

David (Mark Rosenthal) is standing on the roof ledge of a building in lower Manhattan, threatening to jump. Several of his friends try to convince him to safely get down from the ledge, that suicide is not the answer. But as they speak to him, the audience sees moments from the friends' lives in flashback. It becomes obvious that David's friends have lives every bit as sad and desperate as David's; with people like this as your support group, why shouldn't a man jump? Jump features a strong supporting cast, including James LeGros, Richard Belzer, Harvey Fierstein, and Hal Linden, and was shown at the 1999 Los Angeles Independent Film Festival.

Audience Reviews for Jump

Just because I fall asleep during a movie doesn't make it bad. However, when I refuse to watch the rest of the DVD the next day, THEN it's bad. Only got half way through this.

Super Reviewer

"Jump" does include clever bits of dialogue, at times lyrical uses of music and solid performances by LeGros, Amanda Peet and the entire ensemble. Its theme is a plausible one, but needs more subtlety to paint a truly poignant portrait of a millennium-fearing generation of narcissists.
