Big Bounce, The (2004, USA) C-88m. SCOPE ** D: George Armitage. Starring Owen Wilson, Sara Foster, Charlie Sheen, Vinnie Jones, Morgan Freeman. Willie Nelson, Gary Sinise, Bebe Neuwirth, Harry Dean Stanton. Elmore Leonard adaptation is silly but enjoyable. Screw-up Wilson loses his job on Hawaii and must leave the island, but judge Freeman wants him to stay and work for him. And there is rich Sinise's (incredibly sexy) girlfriend Foster, who wants him to help her steal some money. Good-looking thriller, shot by Jeffrey Kimball, is quite amusing. Score by George S. Clinton. Filmed before in 1969 with Ryan O'Neil.
