Storyline Heading
A likeable drifter hooks up with a thrill-loving woman specializing in good looks and petty crime. When she tries to seduce him into double-crossing his former boss, a shady real estate developer, for a chunk of cash, it could be the perfect score or the perfect set-up.
DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Romantic Comedy - This is a quirky crime/caper comedy aimed at adult viewers. Despite the fairly mild PG-13 rating, language, violence, and sexual content make the film inappropriate for children.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Some of the more overtly comedic scenes in the movie come across as quirky but not especially funny. While there's an amusement value to some of the vignettes, they lack punch. And that's how I feel about the movie as a whole. There's some entertainment value, but the production as a whole is unfocused, which leads to a vague sense of discouragement.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average The movie doesn't work. It meanders and drifts and riffs. There is a part of me that enjoyed its leisurely celebration of its characters. I wanted more focus, and so will you, but on TV late some night you may stumble across it and find yourself bemused for a time by the way they live their lives as if there's nothing more fun than being an Elmore Leonard character. Maybe they're right.

USA Today Full Review
Good Though the first Bounce had no comedy, this version has a lot. (Director George Armitage also filmed Grosse Pointe Blank, which has a comparable tone.) It gets wackier as it goes, starting with Charlie Sheen cast against type as a guy who's getting no sex and turns down the chance. Bebe Neuwirth has some funny scenes as a lush.

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

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 94 moviegoer opinions. These opinions are very mixed, to say the least. There are very few high opinions and LOTS of very low opinions. This is certainly not good. Sure, there are a few who really enjoyed it, but I go by the majority and they tell me that I can't recommend "The Big Bounce." Your probability of truly enjoying it is quite low.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
In The Big Bounce, a comedy caper starring Owen Wilson and Morgan Freeman, based on the novel by legendary crime writer Elmore Leonard (Get Shorty, Out Of Sight, Jackie Brown), Owen Wilson plays Jack Ryan, a likeable drifter whose talents lie just outside the law. Hoping a change of scenery will bring him luck, Jack heads for Hawaii. There on the exotic North Shore of Oahu, he soon discovers that whether he is looking for a new con or a little romance, temptation is everywhere.

Jack takes a job working construction for Ray Ritchie (Gary Sinise), a shady real estate developer who is building a resort despite protests by local Hawaiians. Almost immediately, Jack has a run-in with Ray Ritchie's foreman, Lou Harris (Vinnie Jones), and cold-cocks him across the jaw with a Louisville Slugger. Bob Jr. (Charlie Sheen), Ritchie's right-hand man, warns Jack to get off the island if he knows what's good for him. Jack happily ignores Bob Jr.

Impressed with Jack's knockout ability, North Shore District Judge Walter Crewes (Morgan Freeman) offers him a job while taking an unusually keen interest in his past crimes and uncertain future.

Enter Nancy Hayes (Sara Foster), a thrill-loving local who specializes in good looks and petty crime. When Nancy tries to seduce Jack into helping her double-cross Ray Ritchie and steal $200,000 of his payoff money, Jack is intrigued, but hesitant. This could be the perfect score, or the perfect setup.
