Editorial Reviews

Academy Award® winners Ben Affleck (1997, Best Original Screenplay, GOOD WILL HUNTING) and Gwenyth Paltrow (1998, Best Actress, SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE) light up the screen as two strangers who find love amid tragedy. Buddy Amaral (Affleck) is a smooth-talking, skirt- chasing ad exec who is enjoying his high-powered career. Then, a sudden twist of fate changes everything and leads him into the life of Abby Janello (Paltrow). Also starring Tony Goldwyn (THE MECHANIC, “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”) and Natasha Henstridge (THE WHOLE NINE YARDS), BOUNCE is an endearing story about finding love in the unexpected.

While waiting in an airport, Buddy Amarol (Ben Affleck) meets Greg Janello (Tony Goldwyn) a writer. The two men get to talking, and it becomes clear, Greg, wants to get home to see his wife, and kids. Buddy, scheming to have a one-night-stand with Mimi (Natasha Henstridge), also hanging around the airport, decides to be a "nice" guy, and give his plane ticket to Greg.
Buddy is stirred out of sleep by sirens, he quickly turns on the television to find out the plane he was supposed to be on has crashed, killing all the passengers.
Tormented by what has happened, Buddy turns to booze, eventually landing him in rehab. Once sober, Buddy sets out to meet Abby (Gwyneth Paltrow), the wife of Greg. After a brief stalking period, the two actually talk and begin falling in love. But all is not so perfect for this couple, as a videotape of Buddy and Greg at the airport surfaces, throwing Abby into a state of wonder, and confusion.
"Bounce" is not the cute movie the trailer's depicted, but actually a dark love story, that is somewhat creepy. Affleck, and Paltrow are likable in their roles, and they do work well together, but it isn't enough to carry the whole movie.
If there is nothing else to watch, "Bounce" will pass the time, but many will come away from the film disappointed.

A tragic brush with fate sets a man on a road to self awareness and discovery that drastically alters his perception of himself and the world in which he lives, in "Bounce," directed by Don Roos and starring Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow. In Chicago on business, waiting at the airport for a flight back to L.A. just before Christmas, Advertising Exec/salesman Buddy Amaral (Affleck) gives his ticket to a man he's met that evening in the lounge, Greg Janello (Tony Goldwyn), who's just been bumped from his flight. A writer, in Chicago for the opening (and sadly, the closing) of one of his plays, Janello has a wife, Abby (Gwyneth Paltrow), and two kids waiting for him at home, and is grateful for Buddy's apparent random act of kindness. Far from being a benevolent gesture, however, Buddy's motives are purely self-serving, and have to do with another passenger, Mimi (Natasha Henstridge), who's also been bumped and who has been given accommodations for the night by the airline. It seems that everything has worked out well for all concerned, until later that night, when the news breaks that the plane carrying Janello has crashed somewhere in Kansas, and that there are no survivors. For Buddy, who should have been on that plane, it's an awakening; and for probably the first time in his life he is forced to look inward. And he doesn't like what he finds. His confrontation with the demons within ultimately leads him to Abby Janello, and another unexpected turn in his life. Director Roos has created a richly textured drama that is both captivating and credible; the story is well written (by Roos), developed with precision and expertly paced, which makes it all entirely believable.Read more ›

Format: DVD
The movie starts off promisingly enough. Successful businessman, Buddy Amaral, played by Ben Affleck, leads a shallow, sophomoric existence. Failed playwright, Greg Gennello, played by Tony Goldwyn, is happily married and has a rich family life. Their worlds collide when they meet in an airport and get to talking. Both headed to the same destination, Greg wants to get home to his family but is bumped from his flight, while Buddy wants to miss that very same flight so that he can have a one night stand with a beautiful fellow traveler.
In a moment of wild abandon, Buddy gives his ticket to Greg who then boards the plane in his stead. Unfortunately, this act of seeming generosity by Buddy has dire consequences, as the plane crashes and Greg is killed. When Buddy later discovers this turn of events, it is a moment of reckoning for him, and he goes into a personal downward spiral.
A year later, after a stint in rehab to get his drinking under control, he seeks out Greg's widow, Abby, played by Gwyneth Paltrow. Still feeling guilty over Greg's death, Buddy seeks redemption by doing something nice for Greg's widow, who, as the single parent of two young boys, is now trying to make ends meet as a real estate agent. He gives her a sizable real estate commission to handle, though she is unqualified, and soon they begin dating and fall in love. At this juncture, Buddy has still not told her that their meeting was not kismet.
To make a long story short, Abby discovers, in a rather unpleasant way, the part that Buddy played in Greg having been on that fatal flight. The movie then goes south. What had started out promisingly enough, takes a strange twist. While there is, undeniably, chemistry between the two stars, which explains their off screen romance, their sizzle is not enough to keep this movie on even keel, and the movie begins to flatline. Notwithstanding the eleventh hour fizzle, however, it is still a moderately enjoyable movie.

I know that I kind of shouldn't, but I kind of like this movie. Granted, I haven't seen it in some time, but my memories of it are fond. I can admit that not a lot about this movie makes sense outside of movie-world-make-believe, but the packaging is well wrapped and what is inside has enough going for it to make it forgivable even if it isn't believable.

That's called good acting.

The film follows a selfish and arrogant (albeit successful) ad exec that trades places with a beat down family man venturing home. I don't mean they `trade places', I mean that they literally `trade places'. Wanting to stay behind and get some tail, Buddy (our self centered executive) lets Greg (our family man) have his seat on the next flight back home. When that said plane crashes and Greg dies, Buddy goes a little crazy. What happens next is a tad odd yet strangely understandable. Buddy, after going in and then getting out of rehab, decides to place himself inside Greg's widow's life. He feels so guilty for Greg's death that he wants to shred away his selfishness and do something right, although his actions could be considered selfish as well (a theme I really wish had a little more depth here).

Here's why I understand despite the fact that it essentially doesn't make sense. Having met Greg, heard his story and had that personal connection to him, I can see why Buddy feels responsible. He had a face to go with the name. His actions (giving Greg the ticket) were selfish (if he didn't want the tail he would have never given Greg the ticket) and so he wanted to find some peace. That said, if he had gotten on the plane he would have died at the hands of his own selfishness anyways, so it's a tad lose-lose here.
