The Rebound

What it's about:

When beautiful, smart, suburban 40-year-old mother Sandy (Zeta-Jones) discovers that her husband is cheating on her, she leaves him. Not really sure where to go or what to do she opts to take her two children to New York City in order to start over. However, single mothers with small children get no special breaks in the big, bad city and it isn't long before Sandy finds out that she will need to hire a nanny of sorts before she can even think about finding herself a job. Luckily, floors below her apartment, working in the corner coffee shop is disenchanted 25-year old Aram Finkelstein (Justin Bartha) who is just waiting for his life to begin.


What the critics thought:

"Zeta-Jones maintains her dignity as the only woman in New York who can't see how ravishing she is. Bartha has a harder time with his less convincing sensitive New Age guy, despite his easy onscreen charm."
-  By Russell Edwards,  Variety

"While Zeta-Jones plays gorgeous cougar to the hilt, Bartha comes off quite sincere. The children are not annoying props, for a change."
- Bryan Durham, Mid-Day.com

"Whether you’re a hopeless romantic or a horn-dog with a one track mind you’ll understand what is meant by the term ‘rebound’, and for Catherine Zeta-Jones her latest film proves a warped boomerang into an industry that’s pretty much forgotten she’d ever existed."
- Jasyn Howes, On Screen

In New York City, a single mom captivates her new neighbour, a much younger man.

I dont usually like romcoms but this movie got the mix just right. Romance, drama, love, hate, anger, compassion. It had it all!! Brilliant!!
