Owen Wilson stars as Jack Ryan, a likable drifter whose talents lie just outside the law. As a new arrival to Oahu's exotic North Shore, Jack soon discovers a new con, a little romance, and temptation everywhere... Enter Nancy Hayes (Sara Foster), a thrill-loving local who specializes in good looks and petty crime. When Nancy tries to seduce Jack into helping her double-cross a sleazy real estate developer to steal $200,000, Jack is intrigued: This could be the perfect score ... or the perfect setup. For the love, for the money, for the rush--it's The Big Bounce.

Critics Consensus: Lazily crafted and light on substance, The Big Bounce takes few chances and strands its promising cast in a subpar adaptation that fails to do its source material justice.

The story has been so poked and prodded and spun around it barely knows how to end.

Boring, unsexy, styleless, sluggish and physically ugly.

Insipid potboiler set against the far more enticing surf and sand of Oahu's North Shore.
