An advertising executive gives up his seat on a aeroplane to a family man, only to discover that the plane goes down and he is left with survivor guilt. It only becomes more intense when he meets and falls in love with the widow.

Except as a 'vehicle' for the lead actors, it's hard to understand why anyone would make this film. A pedestrian film that meanders about a loosely-written script, it fails to ever plumb the depths of the character's experiences.

Affleck's character is a slick, high-price business man who finds redemption through guilt, responsibility and more guilt. Paltrow plays a limp housewife who takes up a career in real estate -- apparently a pink ghetto in the U.S.

Obvious and forgettable -- a serious waste of time and money.Movie Poster, Bounce, Festivale Reel Life film section
