The Rebound (2011)


The Rebound is a romantic comedy starring Catherine Zeta-Jones and Justin Bartha. You may remember Bartha as the moron on the roof in The Hangover.

A single mom in New York ensnares her neighbor, a much younger man. Yowza.

The mom finds out about her husband’s infidelities, and she leaves him. She gets an apartment above a coffee shop, and starts flirting with a barista. The barista is married, but his wife only married him for a green card. They begin to date, but neither is sure of the relationship, as it may only be a… rebound, for both of them.

I suppose they end up boning.

The Rebound

Bart Freundlich wrote and directed the film, which was supposed to come out in 2009, but for some reason or another (I’m betting it’s terrible) it won’t be out until this fall. No doubt a good sign.

What’s Good About It?

I like Catherine Zeta-Jones, even if she is old and possibly insane. Actually, those are the things I’m most attracted to about her.

What’s Bad About It?

The dude is the retard from Gigli.

Our Clever Prediction

Bombs away. No way this makes much at the box office. Save your money. Just watch The Mask of Zorro again.
