The Rebound

Catherine Zeta-Jones, Justin Bartha

After catching her husband cheating on her, Sandy and her two kids move to New York city, where she gets a great job and starts a new life as a single mum. She rents an apartment above a coffee shop where she meets one of the workers, Aram. Aram is having a break from the serious things in his life (work, love etc) so agrees to be nanny to Sandy’s kids. They become friends, then lovers, and then they enter into a serious relationship. So what’s the problem? He is 15 years young than her. Can they make it work?

This isn’t a great film, but it’s not a total wipe-out either. There’s not a lot to say – the storyline moves along fairly well, there’s romance, a bit of fun, and you wait to see whether they stay together or not. Unfortunately, Zeta-Jones doesn’t give the script any extra pizzaz and doesn’t stand out as a rom com lead. It’s really only one for the TV.
