"The Big Bounce" is a 2004 comedy caper film that stars Owen Wilson, Charlie Sheen, Sara Foster and Morgan Freeman. It was directed by George Armitage and based on a novel of the same name by Elmore Leonard. Leonard's novel had previously been adapted for the big screen in a 1969 film directed by Alex March and starring actor Ryan O'Neal.

Reception

The 2004 film was a critical and commercial disaster. It cost an estimated [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0315824/business $50 million] to make, and grossed only $6,801,716 at the box office. [http://boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=bigbounce.htm] Film website Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a meager score of 16%. Roger Ebert summed the film up by saying simply, "The movie doesn't work. It meanders and drifts and riffs."

Critics generally viewed "The Big Bounce" as being "a big waste of talent." But fans feel that the film's biggest fault would be the major deviation from the original novel, a fault that was also true for the 1969 original film.
