Noahâ€™s Arc: Jumping the Broom is a 2008 African-American romantic comedy film by director Patrik-Ian Polk, starring Darryl Stephens, Rodney Chester, Christian Vincent, and Douglas Spearman. In the movie, Noah Nichols (Darryl Stephens) and his ARC, Alex Kirby (Rodney Chester), Ricky Davis (Christian Vincent), and Chance Counter (Douglas Spearman), head to Marthaâ€™s Vineyard for Noahâ€™s private, intimate wedding to Wade Robinson (Jensen Atwood). All should be well, right? Well, it might be, except that some excessive pill popping, the unexpected appearance of Noahâ€™s boss (Jennia Fredrique), and rapper Baby Gat (Jason Steed) make it a bit more complicated for Noah and Wade to work out their pre-wedding jitters. The film tackles lots of big issues in a fairly light-hearted way, from commitment, to coming out as a gay man in a straight society, to what promiscuity symbolizes to some gay men. Noahâ€™s Arc: Jumping the Broom is rated R for sexual content and language.
