The Big Bounce (2004)
Critic Consensus: Lazily crafted and light on substance, The Big Bounce takes few chances and strands its promising cast in a subpar adaptation that fails to do its source material justice.

News & Interviews for The Big Bounce
Critic Reviews for The Big Bounce
Newcomer Foster cites Lauren Bacall as a precursor, but her ingénue fatale is more like a lost Olsen triplet.
The story has been so poked and prodded and spun around it barely knows how to end.
Boring, unsexy, styleless, sluggish and physically ugly.
Insipid potboiler set against the far more enticing surf and sand of Oahu's North Shore.
Audience Reviews for The Big Bounce
This is a great movie that is always fun to watch. The plot is great, the characters are really fun to watch and the Hawaii backdrop is a nice touch. Owen Wilson, to me, is always funny and this was no exception. I really like the comedy approach to noir, for some reason it just really works.
Jack (Owen Wilson) is a low-key thief in Hawaii, looking for a scam after getting fired from a construction job. He winds up working for district judge Walter Crewes (Morgan Freeman), doing odd jobs and gazing at Nancy (Sara Foster), the hooker mistress of the construction magnate (Gary Sinise),from beginning to end, the leading female character, Nancy, is central to the plot of the story, Heists almost get pulled, fates almost intersect, but not quite....Apart from some beautiful shots of Hawaii and some kewl cliff diving footage, there was nothing that really grabbed me about this movie......
Its an ok light hearted funy film a bit pointless but its ok really though this film just seems like everyones conning everyone and then gary sinines has the most smallest part that it was pointless having him in the movie which a was disappointed about!!
