Product Description

Big Bounce, The (2004) (DVD) (WS)

Owen Wilson stars as Jack Ryan, a likeable drifter whose talents lie just outside the law. As a new arrival to Oahu's exotic North Shore, Jack soon discovers a new con, a little romance, and temptation everywhere... 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 a sleazy real estate developer to steal $200,000, Jack is intrigued: This could be the perfect score ... or the perfect setup. For the love, for the money, for the rush--it’s The Big Bounce



There really can't be enough movies adapted from Elmore Leonard novels; his sinuous storylines and fluid, surprising dialogue give any movie a boost from the start. In The Big Bounce, laid-back Owen Wilson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Shanghai Noon) plays Jack, a small-time crook trying to lead an easier life in Hawaii. Trouble is, he can't keep out of trouble, and when he does stay clean, trouble finds him--in this case, in the bikini-clad form of Nancy (Sara Foster), the mistress of a local developer who gets turned on by the whiff criminal activity. She lures Jack into a scheme that ultimately involves a solid cast including Morgan Freeman, Charlie Sheen, Gary Sinise, Bebe Neuwirth, Willie Nelson, and more. Foster doesn't bring much to movie besides her alarmingly sculpted body and the ending peters out, but The Big Bounce has enough snap and crackle that you don't miss the pop. --Bret Fetzer
