Critic Reviews for The Rebound
Saddling two game actors with a tone-deaf, charmless script, the film makes recent J.Lo vehicle The Back-up Plan look like Billy Wilder in comparison.
The romantic trials of two wealthy, good-looking people, whose only barriers to happiness are their own petty insecurities, become tedious, and it's not helped by some stilted dialogue and awkward, mannered performances.
This recipe can serve an entire Odeon at one sitting and, astonishingly and depressingly, will probably even make money at the box office, even though the best accompaniments are boredom and ennui.
The Rebound does nothing new but does it, for the most part, well. Zeta-Jones and Bartha have sweet chemistry together and it's refreshing to see her portray uncertainty with elements of frumpiness and doggedness.
...a thoroughly (and consistently) misguided piece of work that has almost nothing truthful or relevant to say about relationships.
Audience Reviews for The Rebound
A bit lame, but something to watch free on TV, so no complaints. Couldn't relate to CZJ's mother character, but she looks attractive and gets into a few mildly amusing situations. The young guy is also pleasant to look at, but they are highly unconvincing together. It's not quite as creepy as Jack Nicholson and a younger woman, as CZJ does look reasonably good for her age, but it's still slightly off. Didn't hate it, but it's a bit average.
Wonderful sweet movie. Justin Bartha is just soooo cute, and funny! This is what a romantic comedy should be like...lots of chuckles, charm and heartwarming moments.
An average Rom-Com, has a few funny moments, and likable characters.
