Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There may once have been a real movie rattling inside the empty studio package known as The Big Bounce, but no longer.
Rotten: Everything here is too mild, too sloppy.
Rotten: Newcomer Foster cites Lauren Bacall as a precursor, but her ingenue fatale is more like a lost Olsen triplet.
Rotten: In every other way, The Big Bounce is a dreadful exercise, with a script full of contradictions and empty gestures and a leading lady who's such a novice it hurts to watch her.
Fun. Nothing more, but it is what it tries to be.
Decent amount of comedy, Sara foster looks great, defintly worth a watch
