Critic Reviews for Jump Tomorrow
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.
A delightfully deadpan comedy about the liberating power of love.
It cheerfully if often recklessly leaps across barriers of race, culture, custom and habit to assure viewers that love, after all, conquers all.
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!
I ordered Jump Tomorrow through Netflix based solely on a whim. Upon receiving it, I sat down and watched it straight through without doing anything distracting. I absolutely loved this movie and wish to purchase it ASAP. I watched it about six months ago so my memory may be hazy. Tunde Adebimpe is currently one of my favorite people in the world right now. I love every scene of Jump Tomorrow that he's in, I love TV on the Radio, and I recently saw Rachel Getting Married, which gave him a supporting role that he totally owned. His character in Jump Tomorrow ("Jorge") is hysterical and heartbreaking at all the right moments. His seriousness in the role provides the leverage by which all other characters can be extremes of their own personalities. The entire story sounds completely ridiculous, but it flows in such a way that it makes you forget the silliness of the plot. The characters are somewhat fantastical, but very real and down to earth. The situations the characters find themselves in are also extraordinary, but extremely entertaining and brilliantly crafted. My favorite moments of the film are the telenovela scenes with the dramatic head turns and exaggerated line deliveries. This movie deserves to be watched more than once and sadly, I have yet to give it that honor. Definitely one of my favorite films of the decade.
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...
