The Rebound - #MovieReview

I enjoy a good movie that works with my imagination and allows for me to see real life results. I've watched a number of movies lately and I can say that I really enjoyed the movie, The Rebound, with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Justin Bartha.

We all have those moments when we feel like our lives are falling to pieces. We love someone so much that when they disappoint us by giving their love to someone else, it can be devastating. We don't know how we're going to ever recover from the lost or disappointment until out of nowhere we find peace with an unexpected person. 

The moments are so great that we begin to share our troubles but in a very easy and nonthreatening way, this happens. This person becomes a listener for us and we do the same for them and magic happens to begin our healing. However, when we wake up and see who the person is we've been sharing moments with, do we look at them for who they are or do we measure their worth by their age or status?

Catherine Zeta-Jones makes her role look easy as she has to deal with a new life in New York City with her two children. She eventually becomes involved with her 20-something neighbor who's many years her junior.

I like the fact that the movie keeps the time between events realistic and it leaves you, at moments, thinking about how relationships come and go, but have a possible chance for a better future, once allowed to prune. It was funny and light for a nice evening at home watching movies. I enjoyed the comedic moments of it and would watch this one again. I enjoyed the ending because I was able to see what happened to each of the characters and how their lives connected.

I gave  The Rebound  a 4 out of 5.

If you're at home and looking for a movie that will, make you laugh, open you up to new possibilities in love, and take you on a journey of how real relationships have their ups and downs, I recommend you taking a look. The Rebound is available as an Amazon Instant Video for a 24 hour rental or you can buy it, Here

I like the instant gratification so I enjoy the instant video access.
