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.
Poor writing and inconsistencies sink this film. Let's hope that Zeta-Jones and Bartha can rebound.
Although it bears the marks of studio intervention, much of the blame remains firmly with Freundlich, who's incapable of arranging a single honest moment in this uncomfortable, frightfully strained creation.
An unromantic comedy that gets down and dirty.
The Rebound is largely character-driven, which is more than a lot of romantic films can vouch for.
The Rebound offers up surprisingly nice characters (too nice, you could argue) and a modest charm that compensates for a lack of big laughs or much suspense.
Another faintly insulting rom-com promoting a marketing man's idea of what women really want from movies...
Laughs are in short supply, and Mr Freundlich resorts to gross-out lavatory humour that's an unnecessary concession to youthful audiences who wouldn't like this movie anyway.
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.
