Move along folks, nothing new to see here. "The Big Bounce" isn't
exactly a bad film, but if you have seen a caper film in the last 10
years, chances are you have seen this movie before. Based upon the
popular Elmore Leonard novel, the film is standard fare all the way
Drifter and petty thief Owen Wilson gets caught up in a con game
to rob $200,000 from his former boss on the island of Hawaii. Before
we know it, double crosses and a bloated climax are upon us.
Like we didn't see that one coming.
Despite the help from a rather large ensemble cast -- including
humor and interesting characters keep this movie from floating above
If you have to see something light, fluffy and instantly
forgettable this winter, you can do a lot worse than "The Big
Bounce," but for caper connoisseurs this one will disappoint.
"The Big Bounce" is rated PG-13 for sexual content, nudity,
violence and language.
