Jumping the Broom

Jumping the Broom
The Taylors Are Downtown, The Watsons Are Uptown.
The happiest day of my life... I wish!

A pretty young woman decides to give up sex until she finds Mr. Right, which happens immediately of course. Five months later they're ready to tie the knot, and decide on a hasty wedding at her rich parents' estate. His family duly arrive and they're from the other side of the tracks. The two mothers take an instant dislike to each other, and with the extended family bringing their own ideas about the wedding, the scene is set for a major inter-family fight. Perfect way to get to know everyone!
