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.

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie! Being a guy, I don't usually go for "chick flicks" but am not a big fan of "shoot 'em up" pictures either. This fits into the narrow category of excellent filmmaking done in an almost forgotten sytle followed in the past. Take for instance way the plane crash sequence near the beginning of the film was handled: there are NO exploding heads, NO fires, NO screams, NO explosions of all sorts, etc., however the viewer has no trouble picking up on the fact that someone did not survive a flight based on the reactions of the other characters. Some may call it an effort to save money on special effects; I call it creative directing and FINALLY giving moviewatchers a chance to use their imagination rather than be attacked with visual stimulation built around a mediocre script.
The script for BOUNCE is great by the way.

Maybe the characters aren't totally believeable in their roles, but still the performances are so heartfelt that I was deeply moved. Everyone went crazy over TITANIC; this is far superior to me because it deals with genuine emotions that most people can relate to. Besides the two main actors, there are other great "character actors" that only add to the charm. My favotite is the gay office worker that shows great wisdom and has no fear speaking his mind to his boss (Affleck). Yes, this is a romantic movie but not light in feeling like other well done romantic movies such as SLEEPLESS IN SEATLE. This has real drama here, but like SLEEPLESS, also has truly likeable characters. What else can I say but rent it. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Well,i wasn't a big fan ofGwyneth Paltrow untill recently,in fact
i have watched her in Bounce for the first time ever,and boy was i surprised!
This is here best performance ever!
She plays Abby,a widow and a single mother of two kids,who lost her husband 1 year ago in a plane crash.
she meets Buddy(Played by Ben Affleck) a self centered successful young executive who exchanged plain tickets with her husband before the crash,he feels responsible for what happened so he decides to look for her after he spent 1 year in A.A. rehab clinic. But he didn't expect to fallin love with her.
This is a beautiful love story based on a tragedy.
This movie shows us how tough and unfair life can be sometimes,
but we must be brave enough top go on,also,in this movie Abby helps Buddy to go deep,and discover the whole new side of him
that he didn't even know he has.it shows us how to make the most out of the difficult situation.
The movie also tells us that it's not all in being a successful hot shot,you if you don't have someone by your side who loves you.
The only thing i regret is that i didn't get to see the movie when it was playing in theaters,and maybe if there was a little more time to develop a relationship between Buddy and Abby's sons.
But all in all this movie is really great!
Congratulations to Gwyneth and Ben For great acting in this
Two thumbs up!
The best romantic movie i have ever seen !

BOUNCE has a straightforward screenplay that, with a different cast and director, might pass as a typical romantic comedy. But, it fares slightly better with Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow under the baton of screenwriter/director Don Roos. The film benefits from Affleck's choice to accentuate his characters faults and he even accomplishes a certain amount of charm for his efforts. Similarly, Paltrow approached her single mother role by taking the focus away from her good looks and placing it on her winning personality. Director Roos also placed the films main conflict close to the public's conscience as it focuses on a plane crash.
In a crowded airport filled with anxious passengers awaiting the resumption of flights, Affleck's Buddy gives his airline ticket to a guy he met in the bar. When he hears that the plane crashed in Kansas, he proceeds to find the widow to make sure she is okay. With his secret firmly pounding in his head, he meets and falls for the charming young mother. As expected, the secret eventually gets out and then a decision must be made.
The film does tug at the heartstrings but does at times lean too close to manipulation. Quite often the romantic scenes push a bit too far, bringing it close to the dreaded "Chick Flick". The DVD offers a commentary and a little behind the scenes doc featuring Ben and Gwyneth as well as a gag reel. But when it is all said and done, BOUNCE is an Independent film with a smart production design. Enjoy the film, but if you don't, you'll probably bounce back.
