THE BIG BOUNCE (2004) ** ½

The cast is awesome, the locations are beautiful, and Sara Foster looks great in a bikini, but just don’t look for anything remotely resembling an interesting story or surprising plot twists.  Owen Wilson stars as an ex-ball player/small time con artist.  The sexy Foster tries to get him to go for the big score and rob her rich hubby, Gary Sinise.  Morgan Freeman is the town judge who may or may not be in on the scam.  You can’t blame the actors for being here.  I mean they get to go to Hawaii and chill out on the beach all day!  It just doesn’t make for a great movie.  But any movie that has Charlie Sheen AND Willie Nelson can’t be all bad.  Directed by George (Grosse Point Blank) Armitage.  It’s based on a novel by Elmore (Get Shorty) Leonard, which had already been filmed once before with Ryan O’Neil in 1971.
