The very premise of Bounce sounds suspect, so it's a credit to Roos' writing that he largely overcomes his own dubious plotline and fashions a fairly involving love story.

What keeps it grounded is the commitment by Roos and his cast to making the emotions of the story real.

Ben and Gwynneth, "just friends" or no, have a lovely, believable chemistry that isn't all hot sex or amusing rapid fire witticisms.

Has a sure hand when it comes to explaining what it must be like for a smart and tough woman to come to terms with an absurd tragedy.

Resembles the compromised movies [Roos] used to write for the studios, though it's more like Boys on the Side than his dreaded rewrite of Diabolique.
