    This is one of the best romantic comedies I have seen in years. I wentto see this with a friend of mine who's in his upper thirties and I'min my mid twenties and we both laughed so hard. There's none of thecommercial, fake feel some romantic comedies have, or the ones that tryto be funny and are not, this is a daring romantic comedy, really intune with our times that breaks with some stereotypes.

    Great acting, both by the adults and the kids (you can't help fallingin love with Justin Bartha and this is some of the best performancesI've seen from Catherine Zeta Jones, like a million times better thanIntolerable Cruelty), interesting storyline, nice imagery of New YorkCity and a movie I want to see again!

    I hope it gets a wide release soon.

    I went to see this at a screening this week and took a friend, I'm 33,he's 23… perfect "couple" for this film. We both enjoyed the film andfound it in the same vein as some of the great romantic comedies. Ilove that older women can still be attractive and younger men can "stepup" to the responsibility of being with a woman with kids. Some guyfriends said that was a deal breaker for them. I am certain that withthis film you will see more relationships with older women/younger menout in the open. Best part of the film was when Aram & Sandy were goingat it on the couch while her kids were asleep. They are caught in theact when Frank Jr. comes out and asks "Did you just pee on my mom?" Ithink our entire theatre died of laughter. Oh the trials of dating whenyou have kids!

    The movies which are most difficult for me to write a review about arenot those which provoke nausea because of their horrible technical andcreative quality; neither are those which renew my faith in cinema withan unusual display of greatness.The most difficult movies to write areview about are the simply mediocre ones, which provide the minimumquantity of entertainment in order not to get us bored, but without anyambition of transcending that basic function and say something more, ormake us feel something.The Rebound is one of those movies.

    Bart Freundlich's direction is too bland and impersonal, because hedoes not bring too much passion to his work.On the positive side fromThe Rebound, we have the naturalness in the characters and theirattitudes.I was very grateful not to see "meet cute" (the casual andfunny first encounter between the main characters), or ridiculouspublic humiliations to show the love between the couple, or artificialobstacles in the romance to create suspense about the invariablereconciliation.Well, there are obstacles, but they feel more honest andrealistic for being based on the age difference between the two maincharacters.And even though Catherine Zeta-Jones and Justin Bartha arenot a precisely blistering couple, their affinity and attraction feelcredible.

    It is definitely a paradox, but I think those positive elements alsoare fails from the movie.I did not feel too much interest in the futurefrom the couple, or in their evolution.Zeta-Jones and Bartha make adecent work, but the screenplay does not give them too much todo.Talking about Zeta-Jones, the only specific moment which endures inmy memory is a scene in which her character goes to a class ofself-defense, and she fights against a "criminal" disguised as a Sumowrestler.That scene was obviously designed for provoking laughs, butthere is a moment in which we see intense emotion and frustrationbecause of her recent divorce in the main character's eyes.It was onthat moment when I remembered that Zeta-Jones can be a very competentactress when she works with the right material, so it was a bit of apity to see her relatively wasted during the rest of the film, becauseher talent goes further.

    In summary, I think I can give a slight recommendation to The Rebound,mainly because it is never boring.But at the same time it is moderatelyentertaining, it is also bland and absolutely forgettable.

    I just watched this movie and thought go on Chris get on IMDb (for thefirst time) and review this movie. Where do I start……far too manytimes do you watch a movie because of tonnes of media and press, butthis ain't even had a UK release yet. It was so cool, I love filmsfilmed in New York always feels xmasy to me. Zeta Jones is so good onscreen hard to think she came from Swansea (down the road from where ilive) The dude from National Treasure is a bit wet but that sort offits in with todays modern man I think. He sweeps Zeta off her feetwith the love and emotion that she craves after a suburban hellishmarriage. The kids are well funny and from someone who is on the brinkof having kids this movie gave me the confidence to believe in myfamily to come soon. Catch this movie I am 33 and cant wait for my g/fto watch it, I hope she enjoys it as much as I did.

    Justin Bartha finally bags a lead role and what's better than teamingup with the ever green Catherine Zeta Jones Douglas. A decent dramacomedy and romance with unexpected dialogs – reflection of reality is abit scary. You don't get a lot of movies like this one these days.Every time you see something close to reality, you get grossed out orend up calling it "weird" and the romantic parts from this movie isnicely done as well. With a wide range of cast including ART GARFUNKELhave all done a great job. Highly recommended! I'm very happy fortalented Justin Bartha as I've been waiting to see him in movies thatoffer him good roles and more screen time.

    I went into the movie with low expectations. Wasn't hard, given it hasbeen slammed by most critics and the pretentious on RottonTomatoes.This was not helped by a rushed, detached start which made me feeldoubtful that the movie would pick up from there.

    However, The Rebound quickly takes a swift turn for the feel-good dramaand I was very impressed as it became not only a light romantic comedybut more a well-thought, rounded character drama with all sorts oflittle sub-plots, rich character development, great performances, and agenuine likability to every part of the movie. It was just very welldone and the rest did not feel rushed at all. If only it had been about10 minutes longer at the start to get us to really feel that too,instead of brushing aside the seriousness of it as if it were aslapstick laugh-job, it would've scored another star or two.

    Definitely go see it if you liked "500 Days Of Summer". And go see "500Days of Summer" if you haven't already. Are you kidding me?!

    for a person who never have special feeling toward CatherineZeta-Jones, this piece of work of her playing a middle aged mother istruly the best one from her career as far as I believe. Justin Barthais also the main reason makes this story believable. one of the greatexample of how right casts can push a B level of the production, scriptand its director to even possibly work. there are some good moments butmost of the time one just so much hope the director can go deeper andbuild on characters in a much more personal angles, sadly he did't.without these two main actors, the movie would be a 4-5 out of 10 pieceof work.

    Okay well as a guy who for many years now has dated and been with olderwomen I just had to go and watch this film. Not only does it star twogreat actors, Catharine Zeta Zones and Justin Barber but there are alsotwo amazing young kids that add to the humour and inspiration behindthe story. As you can tell from the films trailer it's about a lad whois in his early 20's and becomes attracted to a newly separated womanin her late 40's. There are many websites and viewers that have triedslating this film but personally I think that's just down to the waythe public look at older younger relationships. For a comedy film basedaround the term older younger relationship it was very funny andreminded me a lot of the 80's comedy films from John Hughes, go watchthis film if you're after a fun and frantic 95mins of comedy.

    The REBOUND is a romantic comedy, that follows the story of Sandy(Oscar winner Catherine Zeta-Jones – Chicago, The Mask of Zorro series,Entrapment, Traffic) as a happily contented wife and mother – that oneday comes across a revealing video on her computer of her husbandhaving an affair with another woman. She leaves the family home andtakes her two children to start afresh in New York – looking for workwithin her favourite pastime (sports statistics) – and living in anapartment above a coffee shop.

    At the same time, Aram (Justin Bartha) – who works in the coffee shop,is just getting over his new french bride dumping him – as soon asshe's achieved her "green card" status.

    Sandy and Aram lives get more and more interwoven when she needs a babysitter and they gradually get closer and closer.

    Her friends want Sandy to start dating again – and Aram's parents wanthim to make more of himself – all claiming that they are both on therebound … but, there is much more going on …

    Adequately directed by Bart Freundlich, and very well acted by the Mainleads – this story moves along well and is one of the better chickflicks out there – and, as always, it stands or falls on the chemistryof the main actors (which works in this case) – and as usual all thebest one-liners come from the two children

    "Sometimes you need to travel the world – to discover what you reallyneeded all along was right here at home …"

    I would say that for it class and genre, that this would be asuccessful movie and is recommended as a romantic comedy

    I watched this movie on a whim and was extremely impressed. It quicklybecame a new favorite of mine. I have seen several reviews that aregiving this movie completely unfair reviews. I mean seriously, you'regoing to grade a comedy based on the camera work? A comedy has one job- To make you laugh. With that said this movie will do that, a lot. Ialso see a lot of people giving this a lower review because of a slowstart but I don't see it. If you really can't handle a movie taking tenminutes to introduce the characters and set up the story then just gowatch stupid videos on youtube and leave the movie community alone. Thefinal gripe I see is that the characters are unlikable, which I alsodon't see. The characters in this movie are great depictions of twopeople who have just been through a bad break-up. Aram is a verylikable young man who is slightly adrift in life because he is recentlydivorced and has a lot of trouble relating to people his age mostlikely because the one friend he does seem to have commits 90% of hisdialogue to sex for example at one point Aram asks "Do you ever thinkabout kids?" and he replies "I think about making them all the time"and proceeds to hump a nearby counter. Sandy is also slightly adriftbecause of a recent breakup with her husband of several years so shenow finds herself single, forced to move, and find a job all prettymuch immediately. The two meet when Sandy moves into an apartment abovea coffee shop where Aram works and he is eventually talked intobabysitting for the family as well. Romance ensues if you couldn'tguess. Overall the story is pretty solid. So all that there is left todiscuss is the comedy so here is what i will say, If you think it isfunny to see people in those giant sumo suits getting the crap kickedout of them, or someone being so bad at bowling they can't hit a singlepin, or someone using a port-a-potty in the middle of a date and stilltalking to the girl amidst several farts, then you will like it. (Don'tworry that's not all the funny stuff in the movie) The final thing Iwanted to talk about was the ending so SPOILERS! Yes of course theybreak-up the point of this movie is that this is a rebound. What thatrelationship did for both of them was get them out of their rut, itreally saved both of their lives. Sandy got a career of the ground, andAram finally took some time to figure his life out and basically gothis crap together. Once the two of them got everything else taken careof then they could get together but before then it wouldn't haveworked. The movie is much more realistic than most and I applaud it forthat.
