Hollywood Has Wedding Fever!

Everyone knows spring and summer are the most popular times to get married, so of course Hollywood would release movies about getting hitched around this time. Romance comedies are fun to watch, but rom-coms about weddings–yes, please! We definitely recommend checking these movies out if you’re still riding off of the royal wedding high.

Something Borrowed

Based on the best-selling novel by Emily Griffin, the storyline follows Rachel, a single and successful attorney, who after celebrating her 30th birthday realizes she’s still in love with her law school crush, Dex, the future husband of Rachel’s best friend, Darcy. Like any delightful romantic comedy, “Something Borrowed” is full of laughs and intertwined relationships. After watching the movie, you might be inclined to go and read the actual book and the whole series of “Something…” by Griffin! The film is directed by Luke Greenfield and stars Ginnifer Goodwin, Kate Hudson, John Krasinski, Colin Egglesfield, and Steve Howey. Out in theatres now.

Jumping the Broom

The latest film by Salim Akil, “Jumping the Broom” shares a story of how two African American families from different socioeconomic worlds come together for a weekend in Martha’s Vineyard. The term “jumping the broom” actually comes from a custom practiced in Wales, by Romani people (also known as “Gypsies”) and in some African communities. In African communities, the couple would end their ceremony by jumping over the broomstick together or separately. This symbolised the wife’s commitment to her new household, which might be why this movie has been cleverly named “Jumping the Broom”.

Sabrina Watson (Paula Patton) falls in love with Jason Taylor (Laz Alonso) and decides to marry him before meeting his side of the family. After meeting Jason’s mother for the first time the weekend of her wedding, problems arise between Sabrina and Jason because their families cannot get along. Sabrina must now decide whether she can overcome these issues and commit to her new family or leave Jason at the altar. Movie is currently in theatres.


From the producer who brought you “Knocked Up” and “Superbad” comes a new movie just for us ladies (and men) to enjoy! “Bridesmaids” centers the story on Annie (Kristen Wiig”} who is asked by Lillian (Maya Rudolph) to be her Maid of Honor. Being not-so-lucky in love and broke, Annie must pull her act together to show her best friend and the other bridesmaids she can carry out the job of MOH, while battling some hilarious hiccups along the way! The cast includes Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey, and Ellie Kemper. Movie is out in theatres now.
