  1. The silliness of Jump Tomorrow takes your breath away, and I mean that as high praise.
  2. The acting is superb across the board, especially from Adebimpe.
  3. Many try but few succeed as well as writer-director Joel Hopkins with his beguiling first feature, Jump Tomorrow, in giving a fresh spin to '30s screwball comedy.
  4. At times a bit stilted, a common quality of first-time directors who try too hard to sculpt every scene, but it's refreshingly bereft of slick cynicism and smart-ass snideness.
  5. 70
    The sweetness at the core of the raggedy low-budget romantic comedy Jump Tomorrow is hard to resist.
  6. An enjoyable trip, as long as you don't mind traveling light.
  7. There's a certain breed of annoying indie movie in which a character's shyness is portrayed in a manner so coy that it becomes a reverse form of exhibitionism. Jump Tomorrow is that kind of movie.
