Editorial Reviews

You'll love this fresh and funny romantic comedy starring Academy Awardr Winner Catherine Zeta-Jones* (No Reservations, Ocean's Twelve) and Justin Bartha (The Hangover, National Treasure). When Sandy (Zeta-Jones) catches her husband fooling around with her friend, she packs up the kids, moves to Manhattan, and starts a new life. Desperately needing a babysitter, Sandy turns to a handsome coffee shop clerk named Aram (Bartha). Soon, unexpected sparks are flying between Sandy and her new "nanny" - who also happens to be twenty years younger! Falling in love and freaking out, Sandy must decide if her feelings for Aram are real or is Aram catching her on "the rebound?"

5.0 out of 5 stars Rebound, refreshing and sweet. January 27, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Hey-film geek girl here(actually,woman)!! I watch a lot of rom-coms and it is hard to find ones that are really great throughout like this one. I have thought that Justin Bartha(and his gorgeously almost neon blue eyes)was adorable and funny ever since the 1st "National Treasure" movie and Catherine Zeta usually makes great film choices,this is definetely no exception.Also when I stumbled upon this in the new to video part of amazon instant,I didn't notice at first that the director was Bart Fr...Sorry,can't remember at the moment how to spell his last name. I do know that he is married to the beautiful and talented Julianne Moore and that they know about a successful relationship involving a slightly older woman.Sure can relate to liking and lusting after younger men. The chemistry between Sandy,the 40yr old mother of 2 kids that is on the rebound from a cheating,kind of awful husband and Arol(not really sure what his name was),the 25 yr old college grad,that works at a cafe and starts working for Sandy, is pretty warm and fantastic. They seem to appreciate each other and care about each other and the kids. The film doesn't rush into the walk down the aisle and quick love but reveals the strengths and passions of both of the main characters. All the travel scenery was nice too,of one of the character's,towards the end."The Rebound" is a wonderful example of how what makes a family beautiful and unique can vary so much. I gotta say,it makes me a little lonely and very much uplifted at the same time. It also stars other great people like Art Garfunkel as Aros' father and Lynn Whitfield as Sandy's eventual respectful,strong boss. I highly recommend this film for any hopeless romantics out there,that don't mind a little real life raunchiness and some bad words interspersed throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Typical May~December Romance January 28, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I found "The Rebound" a delightful Adult Romantic Comedy, written and directed by Bart Freundlich, and not your usual tired fare. After all, this one stars Catherine Zeta-Jones (Sandy) and Justin Bartha (Aram) as the two leads. You really can't go wrong with these two presenting a younger man and an older woman theme. Sandy's two children, Sadie (Kelly Gould) and Frank (Andrew Cherry) are just adorable and precocious as ever. The R rating is for the themes explored and for some bawdy language, making this a romance, with a generous slice of comedy for grownups.

This story basically starts with forty-year old, married Sandy, on her laptop looking through video clips of Sadie. As she's perusing through her young daughter's accomplishments, she spies in the background her husband being 'unfaithful'. His behavior does not get explored in detail. We quickly focus on Sandy and the children moving into an apartment in New York City, above a coffee shop. This is where the very amiable Aram works and they all first meet. The children quickly take notice of him and immediately like him. Shortly after meeting Aram, he offers his babysitting services to free up Sandy for the job hunt. Sandy gains work for a major sports network as she's an avid sports fan and educated in this area. Her boss (Laura Reilly) is strongly acted by Lynn Whitfield who becomes a role model of Sandy. The 'babysitter', whom the children adore and so does Sandy, is permanently employed as the kid's "nanny". The two find a comfortable friendship with each other by this time and Sandy is getting more stable and happy with her life.

Aram has a degree in Sociology, although is content working in the coffee shop as he has been hit hard by a relationship also.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very sweet romantic comedy--and no nudity! May 24, 2012
Forty-year-old Sandy (played by a radiant, 41-year-old Catherine Zeta-Jones, Traffic, Chicago, The Mask of Zorro) has been a stay-at-home mother the past ten years. Her husband is a domineering man whom she's never found the courage to confront. Not even when she discovers he's been cheating on her in her own home. Instead, she simply walks out with her eight-year-old daughter (Kelly Gould) and her six-year-old son (Andrew Cherry), moving from the suburbs of metropolitan New York City into the City itself. Her obsessive hobby of compiling and charting sports statistics lands her a job at a sports broadcasting station, and further good luck leads her to an very nice apartment over a coffee shop where she meets 25-year-old Aram Finklestein (played by then 30-year-old Justin Bartha, National Treasure, The Hangover), a barista at the coffee shop.

College-educated Aram has had multiple chances for employment as a highly paid office "suit" in the City, but he's opted instead to live with his parents and work at a menial job while he searches for something more meaningful to do with his life. After Sandy runs into Aram at a full-contact, self-defense class at a local woman's center, where Aram has hilariously volunteered to be the human punching bag for outraged women who've been ill-used by men, Sandy asks him to babysit her children.

I don’t give many five-star reviews, and there is subjectivity of course in reviewing a romantic comedy. But this movie was so cute and moving in big and subtle ways. Read more
