1.0 out of 5 stars Good cast, BAD movie July 21 2003
Format:DVD
I was appalled by how poor this movie was. I love both Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow and it's a shame that a movie with reasonable potential could be so bad. The characters are un-interesting and the plot is overly predictable to the point of annoying. This movie was a waste of a perfectly good 106 minutes of my evening.

2.0 out of 5 stars Failed Chick Flick May 1 2003
Format:DVD
There's not much to recommend this movie. There's no real chemistry between Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow, which is a shame because they're both talented actors, and they've both proven they can do romance. They just don't do it here. In fact, there's so little connection it's obvious they're just reading scripted lines. In the end, it's neither their fault, nor the writers: the lines are all right, and they're read well, but there's just no chemistry.
There are only two major failures with this movie, but they're doozies: the characters and the plot concept. The characters fail to grow on viewers despite all the standard awkward situations they're put into to create sympathy. Affleck's guilt over Paltrow's husband seems contrived, rather than genuine or understandable. He is a sterotypical villain, ready, even eager, to prey on others. Even his career is sterotypical: he an ad exec; of course he's a horrible human being. His character fails: a flat-character bad guy that almost, but not quite, becomes a likeable guy. His guilt and self-loathing seem contrived. Paltrow's character fails as well: you sometimes feel sorry for her, but never really sympathize.
The other major failure is the plot twist. The only redeeming factor is the that-could-have-been-me factor, which is given away in the trailers and not developed in the movie. If they had spent more time developing his character around that, and not forcing him to persue Paltrow's character, this movie might have been saved. Instead, they use it as a cheap plot device, and throw it away.
There's not even anything to qualify it as a decent chick-flick- there's nothing to sigh about at the end, you never say "just say yes, you twit! Can't you see he loves you?". It's a little too much like watching a very boring episode of Springer, minus any redeeming drama.

1.0 out of 5 stars Chick Flick Hell April 7 2004
Format:DVD
Prepare yourself and sharpen the razor blades if your woman brings this home to watch with you one evening. This is a romantic comedy without romance or comedy. Ben Affleck is his usual shallow character we see time and time again. Gwyneth Paltrow does her best, but doesn't have much to work with. If you've read enough reviews, you know by now Ben visits and ends up courting a widow whose husband's death he is indirectly responsible for. After about an hour of this yawnfest you'll wish you had a night out with the boys instead of cuddling on the couch. The things us men have to endure for the sake of our women is tedious and sad, but this movie is brutal torture. When she brings this home, do anything you can to get out of the house or pour water on the DVD player.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Strange Turn of Events Nov. 24 2002
Format:DVD
Bounce (PG-13)- I either love or hate Gwyneth Paltrow and in this movie I loved her. But alas, I can't say the same for the movie itself. How Don Roos, the acidic genius of The Opposite of Sex could have written this drivel is beyond me. Ben Affleck proves yet again that he has taken over Richard Gere's reign as the most over rated heart throb working in Hollywood. Quite a feat given that Mr. Gere is still making movies! We have seen this story a million times and there is nothing entertaining or original enough this time around to keep you from doing anything but wait for the predictable last reel to finally thread up.

1.0 out of 5 stars One Star. Aug. 7 2002
Format:DVD
Gwyneth Paltrow, aka "Miss Miramax" and the It Girl of 1998, stars in this film directed by the man who gave us the wickedly funny "The Opposite of Sex." But is that enough to warrant a purchase of this DVD? The trailer and even the TV ad spots are all you need to see to determine what's wrong with this film. First off, it stars Ben Affleck, whose celebrity wattage has been dimming since his 1997 Oscar for "Good Will Hunting." Secondly, its contrived love story smells like a chick flick. Trailers are supposed to entice the public to see a film, but this one discouraged me. Yuppie women who max out their credit cards on Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel, and Ann Taylor will run to see this film and to figure out how Paltrow can pull it off as a dyed brunette. But for those who have reasonably good taste like myself, we will have to go somewhere else for a comedy that won't insult our intelligence.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good and simply well made movie, so real! Aug. 7 2002
By Olivia
Format:DVD
Hola! Hello there! I just saw this movie a couple days ago and get catched by it. It was simple, well made, refreshing, romantic, with a couple of excellent actors! I don't know if Ben and Gwyneth were dating at that time but their acting looked very real, how they looked and kissed each other, i have seen other movies with them in other couples and i saw something different, i don't know if it was only me catched by the picture, but they were so real and natural. The movie presents a common theme in an uncommon situation, just out of cliche. "Bounce" makes remember that you just keep the faith that outhere is someone that can make your heart "bounce" again, maybe when you don't expect it. The Soundtrack is awesome too, i don't know why some people didn't like the movie, it just so simple and real that you only have to sit and enjoy it. You will also love it if you really like Ben and/or Gwyneth. Very good acting, they looked very cute!

3.0 out of 5 stars Charisma, that's what makes a star!
I am not a Gwyneth Paltrow fan. I never watch any of her movies except Seven where she only had a small role. So I always wondered why she's so famous. Read more
