  1. The silliness of Jump Tomorrow takes your breath away, and I mean that as high praise.
  2. 80
    One of the sweetest comedies in a long time, which doesn't mean it's sugary or fey.
  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.

    Hopkins delivers a genuinely charming example through the generosity and affection with which he treats his characters, a racially and culturally mixed bunch that could have seemed schematic and forced.
  5. The acting is superb across the board, especially from Adebimpe.
  6. 80
    Transcendently kitschy, trippingly funny fairy tale, which has a surprising amount of psychological insight and a dance number to die for.
  7. 75
    The plot unfolds with the gradual richness of something by Eric Rohmer, who has the whole canvas in view from the beginning but uncovers it a square inch at a time. By the end of Jump Tomorrow I was awfully fond of the picture.
  8. Dry and irreverent, Jump Tomorrow plays like a Hal Hartley ("Henry Fool") comedy with a lighter tone and more laughs.

    A quirky romantic comedy with a distinct and pleasing retro feel.
  10. A light and extremely likable comedy -- just what the doctor ordered right now.
  11. 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.
  12. 70
    The relationship between the hysterical Gerard and the careful, compulsive George is classic screwball material and more compelling than the relationship between George and Alicia.
  13. 70
    The sweetness at the core of the raggedy low-budget romantic comedy Jump Tomorrow is hard to resist.
  14. The performances are extremely good, and the tone maintains a droll continuity throughout.
  15. An enjoyable trip, as long as you don't mind traveling light.
  16. Quirky and good-natured, it makes the most of an unknown but able and refreshingly international cast. And for a low-budget indie, it looks remarkably good and moves along with real snap.
  17. 60
    Just try not to smile while watching Jump Tomorrow.

    Delightful mix of swinging '60s style, road movie conventions and age-old romantic comedy tropes that coasts along on little more than charm, and does it delightfully.
  19. The story is fluff, but it's mostly appealing.

    The movie feels padded. And Hopkins's deft touch as a writer and director leaves him when it comes to casting.
  21. 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.
