Storyline

Noah, Alex, Ricky, Chance and their significant others travel to Martha's Vineyard for a weekend wedding getaway. Drama ensues as one-by-one their relationships start to crack under the pressure of closer examination. Newly successful screenwriter Noah looks to his friends for advice as he prepares to move his relationship to a more serious level while struggling to keep his first studio movie alive. But the friends are of little help as they juggle their own issues. Elder statesmen Chance and Eddie attempt to scratch their seven-year itch but worry their marriage has permanently lost its spark. And playboy Ricky flaunts his barely legal college student fling in the face of his monogamous friends but hides a surprising secret that threatens to rock the house. Add to the mix Alex's crazy-making wedding prep, a closeted superstar rapper, a high-maintenance studio exec, and a surprise visitor and you've got the makings of a hilarious and poignant romantic comedy. Written by S. McCants

Noah's Arc Jumping the Broom.... One of the Best of 2008
28 October 2008 | by kneeseegurlSee all my reviews

This was a Wonderfully done continuation of a ground breaking series. The movie was all any Noah's fan was waiting for. If you weren't a fan seeing this movie will make you an instant fan... The acting was brilliant and showed much growth. I hope this is not the end for theses guys as Noah's Arc. There were unexpected twist and turns. The actors are a great team together and the story was well written by Mr. Polk. This should not be the end of the series. There is so much more we could find out about Noah, Wade, Alex, Trey, Chance, Eddie and of course Ricky. Noah's Arc Jumping the Broom is a must see. The strong showing over the weekend should make the Powers that Be see it can be released nation wide and not just 5 theaters. The movie grabs you from the opening scene to the final moment. I highly recommend this movie to any and everyone to go and see it and make up your own mind.
