I never felt as cheated out of a movie as I did with this.... this waste of time and money.
Tony S. Sankey
The lead character was annoying, and I felt the actor was struggling with the dialogue.

The story of this film is how young and hot Chris tries time and again to find real love only to be continuously disappointed. Tell me a lot of gay men who don't relate. Of course we all have friends who have been together forever but would any of the gay dating websites be as huge as they are without this real truth? I personally felt my own life was being told right in front of me because I too have been through a bad break up and was on the verge of losing it because I really loved that man. I remember after the break up thinking like Chris that maybe I should date different kinds of men and I remember gloriously being disappointed nevertheless. Let's be honest men are men whether they are black or white or asian or what have you. Therefore I give this film five stars for not sugarcoating our experiences as many other gay films do. Since I don't know any of the actors I assume they are all brand new which surprised me because most are actually good actors especially the main actor. I have confidence he will be a big star one day.

Just watched "Rebound" here on Amazon the other night. Very impressed w/ the quality of this film! Beautifully shot (San Fran never looked prettier), evenly paced and very well-acted. & like someone said alot of hot scenes btwn the male actors(!) Not your usual "gay film" as it has a serious story to tell and besides the actors, the scenery & music seem play a dramatic part as well--& really gives you a feel of where you are and whats going on what the main actor. WOuld love to see what this director can do on a larger budget!

I have never seen a movie that was as bad as this one. The acting was awful, the plot noexistent, and the 20mins I spent watching this movie was wasted. I never felt as cheated out of a movie as I did with this.... this waste of time and money. Maybe I'm not sophisticated or artsy enough to get into this movie but oh my God, please in this day and age of reality tv, and web-based movies and series make a movie that's worthwhile or don't do it at all. Ok I'm off my soapbox now!! Ok just one more thing.... the person who developed this movie, and the person or persons who paid for this to be made should be tourted to death while this movie is playing in the background. Ok now, I'm through....

This was not a good movie, at all! I felt so bad for the actors because they had no script or plot to work with. I really wanted to see Christopher end up with someone! I'm so sad I even wasted my time, Over-all the movie was pointless, and not to mention: boring as hell.........Two thumbs all the way down!!!

This is not a good movie. I think the director shot about 40 minutes of footage and then turned it into a 90 minute movie. Some of the acting was really bad and the story was incoherent. And I myself didn't find it sexy at all.

This movie inspired me to create a pen name and write my first amazon review. My mission? Help knock the rating average down to 2 stars, which is the rating it truly deserves. No, this isn't a trolling.

Afdhere Jama's Rebound is a film about a young gay San Franciscan named Chris who's still reeling from the breakup of a long term relationship. About three-fourths of the film consists of moping, flashbacks to happier times, and commiseration with the obligatory straight friend who's a girl. The remaining fourth goes to his adventures in the sack with various hot men, which gets old after a while. Rebound deserves a low rating due to its following offenses:

1. Dialogue --forced, unrealistic, standard. Dialogue gives a certain rhythm to the movie--gives us a time and a place and sense of characters--and this movie failed terribly in this department.

2. Improbable scene -- getting time off from work with your boss's blessings to get over a breakup. I'm sorry, but in this economy Chris would be out of a job in no time.

3. Editing -- Don't take shot after gratuitous, meaningless shot of Anthony Lafferty just because he's hot, and don't insult the audience's intelligence by immediately going into flashbacks of what
happened just 2 minutes ago. This isn't a Bollywood movie, for goodness sakes (and yes, I've watched my fair share of Indian movies)!

4. Characters -- I didn't care about them! I didn't know Chris in the beginning, and I didn't know him at the end, and meanwhile I didn't care. The other characters seemed to be caricatures of real people or plot devices.

5. The final word -- In the end I came away with nothing. No epiphanies or breakthroughs in understanding the human condition, nor any sincere maturation in Chris.
