Storyline

Jack Ryan is a young Vietnam veteran with a criminal record, who gets fired from his job as a migrant laborer on a California produce farm run by the mean-spirited camp manager Bob Rodgers. Ryan then meets and teams up with the seductive Nancy Barker the secretary and mistress to the unscrupulous owner Ray Ritchie. When Ryan takes another job as a cleaner at a local motel owned by Sam Mirakian a local justice-of-the-peace, Nancy again approaches Ryan to help her rob Ritchie's safe in his house which allegedly has $50,000 of payroll money. Ryan reluctantly agrees to help with the heist, but becomes highly distrustful of Nancy, suspecting she may double-cross him to keep all the money for herself, and vice versa with her over him.

The Big Bounce Of Ryan O'Neal's Big Bum
22 June 2013 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Yep. "The Big Bounce" was a big-Big-BIG bore.

Just a cheap, grubby, little Soap Opera at heart, this easily forgettable film from 1968 stars the 28 year-old heart-throb, Ryan O'Neal.

O'Neal plays the belligerent, smart-ass bad-boy, Jack Ryan, who gets sexually involved with his ex-boss's mistress, the despicable, calculating bitch named Nancy, who, using her womanly wiles, tries to trick him into being her stooge and partner in crime.

Ryan O'Neal and his co-star Leigh Taylor-Young made for a repulsively dreary pair of on-screen lovers who seemed to be doing a whole lot more bickering than they were actually doing any of the "you-know-what" stuff. (Ho-Hum!)

This film contains both male and female nudity. (Yep. That's right. Even Ryan O'Neal gives us a gander at his beefy butt-cheeks)
