Noah's Arc: Jumping the Broom

Synopsis: 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.

Noah's Arc

The need in taupe.

Topo. T, O, P, O. Topo.

Now, for the front

of the shirts ...

... I see blue ...

... or maybe ... Sky blue.

Do not know what it is


I can not believe you work in a

fabric store and not know colors.

Get a new job.



Would you believe that Ricky brought ...

... one of my students

as a companion?

Be fair. I did not know

Brandon was a student that yours ...

... to enter

male prostitutes in point ...

Wherever you choose

their boyfriends.

Attention, passengers.

The ferry dock in five minutes.

Welcome to Martha's Vineyard.

Noah, awake, baby.


Come on, let me show you something.

This is my favorite part

coming here.

Everything is so beautiful.

Only the best for my love.

The king of my world.

Is not it beautiful, guys?

Ricky, if my stripes Louis,

we will be just you and me.

Yes, massa.

The dog could help

to carry your bags.

I bet that Trey is happy

for not coming.

Now, Trey, is the husband

Alex, right?

Yes, they had to stay home

with the new baby.

Thank God. On this trip, the last

we need is a baby screaming.

I think you took care of that.

- Surprisingly, Wade.

- Did you see the ocean view?

This house is intense.

So here will be held

the wedding, right? Wade and Joey Do?

Son Wade and Noah, Randy.

N, O, A, H.

It's Brandon, Ricky.

B, R, A, N, D, O, N.

Welcome home

of Robinson.

The rooms are upstairs,

names are in the doors.

In the words of Dominique

Devereaux from "Dynasty" ...

... do not sleep with your clothes on

or sleep with clothes.

I need two rooms.

You unpack.

I'll show Noah

something behind.


- Child will not work.

- They have no prospects.

I give them two months.

I think not.

Why do you think

that marriage does not work?

I do not believe in marriage.

For men monogamy

is a contradiction in terms.

But Wade and Noah have

some unique problems.

The problem is the accident.

It's what brought them together.

- Both are spiteful.

- Wade had a car accident?

- Noah helped him recover.

- How romantic.

Except that what caused the crash

was a fight ...

... between Wade and her boyfriend after

seeing Wade and Noah in action.

- Sounds like a novel.

- Why not work.

Life is not a novel.

But everything in life

bounces off something.

But this drama

enhanced emotional is not real.

I mean, what is

when is it?

Two people with nothing in common ...

... that even

is like a special way.

- Should not tell Noah?

- For what purpose, Trey?

Noah is only for Wade.

You will not hear a thing.

Love is blind.

What are you wearing?

This wedding should run

with some military precision.

- I'm channeling ...

- Who, The Village People?

You're cute.

Are we going to use all these

in one weekend?

Only if the local types

are horrible.

Herf "the feelings of the baby?

Let's see if we can do

something about it.


Hello, O.J. How is our

small Zulu warrior?

Alex, for the umpteenth time ...

... is Ojemodupe.

- Never mind. O.J. For short.

Before you forget, the local provider

is still a damn, so it looks.

I need you to go FedEx ...

... and send a lot of things for the wedding.

No, Alex. I must be at the clinic in an hour.

You can do


Take pencil and paper, because there should be no errors.

Blue you write, right?

I really missed this place.

As a child I used to come

every summer.

Spring Break, Christmas.

- This barn was my sanctuary.

- But ...

... Where are the boats?

- Down.

It was kind of your parents who let us use this ...

... especially in light of their opinion

over gay marriage.

John R. Gordon

John R Gordon (born 1964) is a white gay writer and resident of Shepherds Bush, London, England, whose work - novels, plays, screenplays and biography - centers black characters and explores the complex, subtle and troubling intersections of race, sexuality and class. With Rikki Beadle-Blair he founded and runs queer-of-colour-centric indie press Team Angelica. Although he was a "white person from a white suburb", according to Gordon, in the 1980s he became deeply interested in black cultural figures such as James Baldwin, Malcolm X and Frantz Fanon, and they have influenced his work ever since. more…
