From Amazon.co.uk

Bounce has all the deft charm and breezy good looks you'd expect from a romance starring Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow, but under the surface beats the poisoned heart of an independent film just going through the motions. Affleck plays Buddy Amaral, a successful ad exec with an empty life. In a Chicago airport, he meets Greg Janello (Tony Goldwyn), a failed playwright going home to his family and a corrupt job as a TV writer. Buddy, angling for a one-night stand with a fellow passenger, gives Greg his ticket, but feels bad when he discovers the plane crashed and the guy died. He feels so bad, in fact, that when he gets out of rehab a year or so later, he decides to give the guy's widow, real estate agent Abby (Paltrow), commission on the sale of a building for his business, a sale she's not qualified to make. They start dating. She quickly forgets her initial impression of him as a creepy stalker. Affleck is good at playing privileged and shallow; Paltrow does what she can with the prepackaged grief of a widow; Joe Morton has very little to do as Buddy's business partner (but he does it well); and Johnny Galecki shines in a very small part as Buddy's assistant. These are good performances in a rather creepy film by the guy who made The Opposite of Sex. --Andy Spletzer, Amazon.com

On the DVD: as with most two-disc sets the additional material is contained on the second disc and offers the usual assortment of outtakes, "Making of" documentaries and deleted scenes. The highlight is the outtake reel but the Behind the Scenes featurette with Paltrow and Affleck also has its moments with the pair interviewing crew. The 45 minutes of deleted scenes contain two alternative endings. The commentary with director Don Roos and producer Cohen is informative with discussions on narrative structure, context and shooting techniques. All in all this is a packed second disc with enough to keep Affleck or Paltrow fans happy for at least the night. The visual quality of this 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen DVD is crisp and clean throughout. Because the film is heavy on dialogue, the Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack doesn't really get an opportunity to show off, but the more emotional scenes are all perfectly audible and easy to understand. --Kristen Bowditch

I bought this by accident because I was adding it to my watch-list without realising that doing so meant I was buying it! I thought it would be good to watch, and it is if you don't have anything to do - you have cleaned the house, done the ironing, gardening, and clipped your toenails or you are ill and this is the only thing left to watch I would suggest you go to sleep. Boring

By lawyeraau HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 1 Dec. 2002
Format: VHS Tape
The movie starts off promisingly enough. Successful businessman, Buddy Amaral, played by Ben Affleck, leads a shallow, sophomoric existence. Failed playwright, Greg Gennello, played by Tony Goldwyn, is happily married and has a rich family life. Their worlds collide when they meet in an airport and get to talking. Both headed to the same destination, Greg wants to get home to his family but is bumped from his flight, while Buddy wants to miss that very same flight so that he can have a one night stand with a beautiful fellow traveler.
In a moment of wild abandon, Buddy gives his ticket to Greg who then boards the plane in his stead. Unfortunately, this act of seeming generosity by Buddy has dire consequences, as the plane crashes and Greg is killed. When Buddy later discovers this turn of events, it is a moment of reckoning for him, and he goes into a personal downward spiral.
A year later, after a stint in rehab to get his drinking under control, he seeks out Greg's widow, Abby, played by Gwyneth Paltrow. Still feeling guilty over Greg's death, Buddy seeks redemption by doing something nice for Greg's widow, who, as the single parent of two young boys, is now trying to make ends meet as a real estate agent. He gives her a sizable real estate commission to handle, though she is unqualified, and soon they begin dating and fall in love. At this juncture, Buddy has still not told her that their meeting was not kismet.
To make a long story short, Abby discovers, in a rather unpleasant way, the part that Buddy played in Greg having been on that fatal flight. The movie then goes south. What had started out promisingly enough, takes a strange twist. While there is, undeniably, chemistry between the two stars, which explains their off screen romance, their sizzle is not enough to keep this movie on even keel, and the movie begins to flatline. Notwithstanding the eleventh hour fizzle, however, it is still a moderately enjoyable movie.

A love story with good on screen chemistry between Ben Affleck & Gwyneth Paltrow. An unexpected meeting and a kind if self serving act at an airport on Christmas Eve results in tragedy. When the plane crashes and the passenger list is incorrect our hero attempts to assuage his guilt by seeing that the family of the man who took his seat are all right lead to emotional complications.
A humorous and charming if light romance.

The story/plot is certainly different, it's interesting to see how it develops,I cannot imagine how anyone would feel if this happened to them, it's sad and yet you feel that life and happiness can and does go on. Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow play their roles well.

Ben Affleck plays an advertising agent who finds it difficult to cope with the guilt of handing his plane ticket to Greg Janello later to find out the plane crashed. In an attempt to heal the pain and help the suffering, he befriends the widow - Paltrow, initially to make sure she and her kids are financially secure, but Affleck didn't count on falling in love with her. This film of devastation and trust collide to a climax when Paltrow finds out that Affleck was supposed to have been in the place of her late husband on the fatal flight. Would she trust him again, could she forgive him?? An outstanding film that encorporates the hurt of losing someone, to falling in love again, to being able to forgive.

" 'Guys screw up'...it's in their manual, right after 'Love your grill' and 'Leave socks on floor' ".

Four and a half FASCINATING Stars! Oscar-winners Gwyneth Paltrow and Ben Affleck, an off-again, on-again real-life Hollywood couple at the time, are magical as Abby and Buddy. Through self-directed circumstance, Buddy avoids death and, coming out of a period of guilt and booze, is drawn into checking up on the widow and kids of the man who literally took his seat on an airplane and died. The movie has a very attractive 'made for TV'-type ambience that rushes towards a hopeful conclusion and it is nice watching some inevitable things unfold, but are they inevitable? Aside from the irresistible Paltrow and the likable Affleck, the movie cast includes Edward Edwards, Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing), Tony Goldwyn (Scandal), Natasha Henstridge (Species), Mary Ellen Lyon, and Joe Morton (Scandal). Directed by Don Roos. Highly Recommended. Four a half ENCHANTING Stars! (Amazon Instant Video. Time: 1:47. Note: Gwyneth Paltrow talked Ben Affleck into doing this movie after they had broken up in real life, the movie drew them back into the relationship for a while. "Bounce" was made for an astounding budget of $35 Million and it made a nice profit of $53 Million total worldwide as a date movie.)

The film is already described well enough, so I can just add that I ordered after watching it on TV.
This is acting that manage to get to your heart, and maybe press out a little tear from some of us.
I love this film, just as I love films like "Expendables 2" so I`m not entirely into the tear department ;- )
