I know, I know it’s only Friday in the early evening, but nowadays judging on early projections, studios can determine what weekend B.O. figures will be, and, so far it looks like Jumping The Broom is heading for an excellent weekend opening, placing it in third place, behind Thor and Fast/Five, grossing $16 million this weekend.

Of course the final weekend numbers won’t come out until Sunday, but if that holds, that will be a solid opening for the very modestly budgeted $6 million film, which, as I said on this week’s S & A podcast, is a genuinely charming and funny movie. I mean even guys will like it, and THAT’S saying something.
