Not a bad film, despite what you may have heard, but there is no doubt it should have been a lot better.

With gorgeous Hawaiian cinematography, a charming Owen Wilson, and a clever script, I found it eminently enjoyable.

It's sexy, offbeat fun for the most part, but it's way too laid-back for its own good and, in the end, obstinately refuses to be anything more than the sum of its highly promising parts.

It tends to be bouncy in that flippant, rhythmic attitude, the winkingly self-assuredness so prevalent in the actual assuredness of Get Shorty.

glides along on the humor of its characters and the inherent intrigue created whenever multiple characters with multiple agendas all appear to be going after the same thing

Director George Armitage brings to the project the same degree of playful insouciance that informed his previous picture, Grosse Pointe Blank.

Cheerfully sunny, lightweight entertainment.

Essentially a shaggy-dog tale, relaxed, affable and harmless, that goes down as easily as a Mai Tai.

A sloppy, lazy, amiable movie with a sloppy, lazy, amiable hero.

Although it lacks the flair and edgy wit of Miami Blues, The Big Bounce is an unpretentious and funny caper comedy that gives you far more bang for your buck than most of the dreck currently playing at the neighborhood multiplex.

You have to admire any movie that can convince you congenital milksop Owen Wilson is a charming, roguish criminal, and The Big Bounce goes about that subterfuge the right way.

Bounce feels as dated and condescending as Blue Hawaii.

We all know how good Morgan Freeman is. But it's time to celebrate the impeccable comic timing of his easygoing co-star Owen Wilson.

I have to admit that I had a pretty good time watching the film unfold in its amiably haphazard fashion.

[Wilson's] deceptively easy-going manner...provides the needed energy that keeps 'The Big Bounce' bouncing.

Like the frosty tropical drinks the people keep sipping here, it's refreshing and icy-cool, a sinful pleasure mixed by experts.
