The Rebound ~ DVD Review


Academy Award®-Winner Catherine Zeta-Jones and Justin Bartha Star in the Charming Romantic Comedy Arriving on Blu-ray and DVD February 7

Spend Valentine’s Day cuddled up with a captivating comedy, and learn that age is just a number with Academy Award®-winner Catherine Zeta-Jones* (No Reservations, Chicago) and Justin Bartha (The Hangover, National Treasure: Book of Secrets) in The Rebound, coming to Blu-ray and DVD February 7 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Upon discovering her husband’s infidelity, Sandy (Zeta-Jones) and her two kids move from the suburbs to pursue a new life in the big city.  There she meets Aram (Bartha), a local coffee shop employee whose wife only married him as a means to getting her green card.  The two strike up a friendship which eventually evolves into something more.  But it isn’t long before they’re faced with the big question - “Is this real or just a rebound?”

Arriving just in time for Valentine’s Day and featuring electrifying chemistry between
Zeta-Jones and Bartha, The Rebound also features fantastic supporting performances from
Lynn Whitfield (The Women, Madea’s Family Reunion), John Schneider
(“The Dukes of Hazzard,” Lake Placid 2) and music legend Art Garfunkel.

In My Opinion

I watched this movie with a good friend of mine and we both agreed that it was pretty good. Not great. Definitely NOT for children to see. It is not really your typical romantic comedy though. They put a spin on things when they made Catherine Zeta Jones' character fall in love with someone who was so much younger, and who is also the babysitter! It really does make you realize how much of an effect something like age can have on a relationship. 

I thought that some parts of the movie could be better, but Justin Bartha is a cutie patootie and I did enjoy his character a lot. The thing that did surprise me were the things that came out of the leading lady's "daughter's" mouth! The things the children in the movie said were really funny because they were so shocking. The daughter character in the movie had my friend and I chuckling quite a bit.

If you are not ok with foul language and sexual references, I would NOT recommend watching this movie.

All in all I thought this movie was pretty good. I really liked the ending and honestly thought it was the best part of the entire movie. If you are looking for a romantic comedy, I would say give this one a try.
