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

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.
