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.

The fact that it remains watchable and enjoyable is a credit to its actors and its writer ...

What should have been graceful understatement instead reads as lifeless detachment.

Affleck and Paltrow seem to be enjoying their roles far more than we do.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 8, 2002
Heavy-handed, unbelievable, predictable, and when without Gwenyth, a not very exciting film to find oneself bouncing ultimately boredly through.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Seems too slight and shallow to really work as a drama.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
June 15, 2002
a major disappointment from writer-director Don Roos, who previously created the scathingly funny "The Opposite of Sex." ...this muddled drama is more like the opposite of interesting.

Two movies in one -- lively when people are talking, lame when things are happening.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

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

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

[Gives] us two smart, likable characters to follow.

You can almost see the strings as the actors are manipulated into position for one more weepy scene.

An agreeable but ultimately insubstantial piece of fluff.

If you're expecting Bounce to be a followup to Don Roos' edgy dark comedy The Opposite Of Sex, be prepared for something more like The Opposite Of Don Roos.

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

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.
