Bishop TD Jakes has taken a bit of heat for being  too edgy with his film releases. Profanity, sexual content, and crass humor has been know to upset more conservative members of his viewing audiences. But Jakes doesn't seem worried. Recently, the movie producer was spotted sharing a few laughs on the red carpet with lead actress Paula Patton, and other members of the cast of Jumping the Broom.

The movie is scheduled to hit theaters on May 6, and is generating plenty buzz across the country. The full cast, (Bishop TD Jakes is also featured in the same issue.) received a full spread in EBONY Magazine. Ads for the movie can be seen everywhere, which has created high expectations for a huge opening week-end.

Producers TD Jakes, Tracey Edmonds and Curtis Wallace attend all strike a pose together on the red carpet for the Jumping the Broom screening.

According to the Christian Post:

While there are religious themes that promote a Biblical view of relationships, the PG-13-rated film also includes passionate kisses and begins with a scene of Sabrina Watson the morning after having casual sex.

It was Jakes’ decision to include the morning-after scene, said Patton. She said of the scene, “It lets people be human beings that are not perfect. We make mistakes but the goal is become a better person.”


Theaters will likely be packed next week-end. Do you plan on going to see the flick?
