Synopsis When Buddy Amaral (Ben Affleck) decides to have a casual fling with a woman he meets in an airport, he gives up his ticket to Greg Janello (Tony Goldwyn), an earnest man on standby for the flight who is desperate to get home to his wife and child. But when the plane crashes because of snowy conditions, killing everyone on board, Buddy plunges into a sea of despair and confusion. At the edge of a nervous breakdown, Buddy seeks out Abby Janello (Gwyneth Paltrow), Greg's widow. He approaches Abby, who works as a real estate agent, under the pretense of finding a new location for his advertising agency. But, he never reveals that he knows about her husband's death. While his only intention is to do a good deed for the grieving Abby, Buddy slowly finds himself falling in love with her and she responds to him with a similar sincerity. The only thing keeping them apart is the dark secret that Buddy is hiding. BOUNCE is writer-director Don Roos's follow-up to his engaging, clever, independent debut, THE OPPOSITE OF SEX. Like that film, BOUNCE examplifies Roos's knack for writing witty dialogue and using it to make a intelligent, sweet films....Comparable in its craft to JERRY MAGUIRE and AS GOOD AS IT GETS....Gywneth Paltrow and Ben Affleck emerge from the movie as the most romantic coupling to animate a Hollywood film in quite some time...Theatrical release: November 17, 2000....Lovely and all-too-rare....The two actors hold you with the matching gentleness and vivacity of their spirits. -- Rating: A-...The actors are amiable....Roos still knows how to write barbed one-liners......Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow give likeable performances, with each wearing emotional vulnerability like a badge of honor...
