Chicago Sun-Times
In movies with this story structure, all depends on the precise timing of the delay and the revelation, and Bounce misses. Not by a lot, but by enough.

L.A. Weekly
Thrillingly unpredictable.
50
Simultaneously contrived and genuinely felt.
50
Surprisingly tepid and soapy.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Flies coach instead of first class, despite a charismatic cast.
50
Chicago Tribune
Doesn't really work when examined in the daylight outside the theater doors.

Affleck and Paltrow, who've been excellent elsewhere, display less chemistry than they've shown in magazine photo shoots. Even Woody and Bo Peep had more going on between them in "Toy Story" than these two manage here.
30
Salon.com
A pallid, mediocre tale that treacles its way through well-worn channels.
30
Village Voice
It's been smoothed over plenty, but this is one creaky, rigged contraption.
20
Dallas Observer
Moments of strained mirth indicate how false and fabricated the whole enterprise really is--just a couple of well-to-do superstars doing their darnedest to prove to us that they're regular folk. And failing.
