Bounce Reviews

Matt Brunson
Creative Loafing

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.

Matinee Magazine

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

March 8, 2002

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

I wanted [Buddy and Abby] to become lovers, which means they sold me on themselves.

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.

Both actors are better here than most like to give them credit for.
