Buddy (Affleck) has just signed an airline in Chicago as a big client, but is ironically delayed at the airport waiting for a flight to LA on that same airline. He meets fellow passenger Greg, who opts to be bumped, even though it means missing an activity with his older son. When the flight gets resumed, Buddy thinks he's doing a good deed by swapping tickets with Greg so he can get home to his son. Sadly, the flight crashes. Buddy conspires with his friend, the ticket agent that night, to take his name off the passenger list and put Greg's on. Once he's back in LA, his new client dictates that the company run a series of feel-good ads about the crash. Buddy feels very hypocritical, and completely loses it when the commercials win a Cleo. After going through re-hab, he decides he needs to check on Greg's widow. But he doesn't plan on falling in love with her.Written by
Ben Affleck explained on Inside the Actors Studio (1994), that he and Gwyneth Paltrow were no longer together when they made this film, but Gwyneth thought he should do it, as it was a different type of role from anything he had done before. See more »

You only took 2 puffs of your last one.
That's cause I don't really smoke. Yeah, well, last year I started chewing the gum, you know? Because my friend, Donna, she was trying to quit smoking and she found that the gum was soothing to the nerves. So I started chewing it, then I got hooked on the gum and then I got TMJ from the chewing. So this is just to get me off the gum. I'm 10 days off the gum.
Sounds like a good plan. Next week you'll be on heroin.

Heart-warming, hilarious, romantic, and touching romance
BOUNCE, in my opinion, is a heart-warming, hilarious, romantic, and touching romance. If you ask me, the way that Buddy (Ben Affleck) and Abby (Gwyneht Paltrow) met was pure magic. This was because fate intervened. Plus, it was love at first sight. Some people have said that this is one of the worst movies they've ever seen, but I strongly disagree. This is a great movie with terrific performances from very talented actors and actresses. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say, "This is a perfect movie to see with the one you love!" Now, in conclusion, to all you Ben Affleck or Gwyneth Paltrow fans that have not seen this heart-warming, hilarious, romantic, and touching romantic drama, I highly recommend it! When you see it, prepare to laugh and have a good time.
