Everyone loves self-help guru Matthew Taylor's (Shemar Moore) new bestselling book on romance, "The Bounce Back." Everyone, that is, but psychologist Kristin Peralta (Nadine Velazquez). When she and Matthew spar on numerous TV talk shows about his quick-fix approach to mending broken hearts, though, their chemistry is obvious. The question is – can true love conquer philosophical differences?

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Bounce Back is an opposites-attract romantic comedy about a self-help relationship expert (Shemar Moore) who ends up debating on-air with a therapist (Nadine Velazquez) who thinks he's totally wrong. There's implied sex between adults -- couples are shown before and after, usually with a shirtless man and bra-clad woman in bed together -- and talk of teens who've had sex. Adults drink socially, and occasional but not frequent language includes "s--t," "bitch," "damn," and "ass." There's nothing here that's too heavy for most teens, but the movie's target audience is adults who will most understand and appreciate its relationship themes.
