Critic's Review Heading
Average
So are Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow an item? After seeing them play romantic leads in Bounce, no one should ever doubt their oft-repeated answer of "no" ever again. In this romantic drama, Affleck and Paltrow do display a natural rapport, but their chemistry is more of a clicking between friends than a smoldering romantic electricity--something that would give writer-director Don Roos' contrived and overly familiar story the "bounce" it needs to really work.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Most of the opinions are towards the high end of the scale, but they aren't exceptionally high. Females enjoyed it slightly more than males. Unfortunately, there are quite a few opinions of "Good" and below, which, from our experience, is somewhat low. Fortunately, the vast majority of moviegoers would recommend it to friends, which says a lot. My recommendation would be to read the moviegoer comments before deciding if this movie is worth your time. Bounce contains several sad scenes, so ladies, have some tissues ready.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
As a partner in LA's hippest advertising agency, Buddy Amaral (BEN AFFLECK) makes things happen. Fearlessly confident and wildly charming, his clients love him, and thanks to his killer good looks, so does every woman he meets. Life smiles on Buddy... that is until the December night he's stranded in a major snowstorm at Chicago's O'Hare airport.

There, Buddy meets Greg Janello (TONY GOLDWYN), who is trying to make it home in time to celebrate Christmas with his family, and beautiful business woman Mimi Praeger (NATASHA HENSTRIDGE). When Buddy's connections get him a seat on the only flight out that night, he's faced with the choice of either getting on the plane or enjoying a one-night tryst in the windy city. Buddy picks the sexier option and generously offers Greg his seat.

But the next morning, Buddy learns that the plane he should have been on has crashed, and for the first time in his life the guy with all the answers is at a loss.

Compelled to make things right, Buddy sets out to find the wife (GWYNETH PALTROW) of the man who took his seat. It's a bold move that will change the lives of two people who never in a million years would have met, in very surprising, unpredictable and ultimately unforgettable ways.
