Alex March takes his sweet time getting us to even a small bounce, much less the titular big one.

Audience Reviews for The Big Bounce

½

A flat boring slow movie with a good cast. Unfortunately the cast doesn't do much to enliven the story, which is an interesting story. I don't know why but this is not a good movie, it seems like it should be, but it's not.

The original version not the remake with Morgan Freeman, which was okay. This one was kind of flat anyway.
