Man, I got absolutely nothing from this move.
10 December 2016 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

Shemar Moore and Nadine Velazquez are two of the hottest people you could possibly put on camera, And yet The Bounce Back was sooooo flat. So flat it's actually impressive how flat and lifeless these two are on screen.

Just proof that looking good is not enough to be a tolerable actor. I mean Shemar Moore has Been doing this for years right? I'm realizing I've never actually seen him in anything else or I could have been warned. I seen Nadine Velazquez in things like My Name is Earl and Real House Husbands of Hollywood. Both I love and both I love her in, cause she did good on both shows.... as a supporting actor. I'm guessing she's not ready yet to co-support a film. And I've seen Bill Bellamy at his prime when he was able to hold down his own flick (How to be a Player) so very surprise how his comedy bounce off of me like I was bulletproof.

The movie was not awful but it was not good, it was flat very flat like a soda without the fizzle. Everything was lined up correctly, but somehow nothing sizzles.

It's something to catch if you have nothing else, but it does not leave any after flavor.
