The Rebound (2009): review: 6/10

An attractive suburban brunette discovers her husband is having an affair: she decamps with her two small children to New York, where she rents an apartment above a coffee shop. She begins a successful career in TV.

The fellow running the coffee shop is an insipid mommy's boy, the ill-dressed, unhaven going-nowhere son of a wealthy, charmless Upper West Side family. His accent is hatefully nasal, and he quite vomit-inducingly, a-sexually nice. His best friend, who aspires to a career on the stage, is a sleazy loser, and a rotten actor.

However, being quite immature, coffee-shop boy gets on well with the children: mother finds this quality sufficient to inspire copulation.

It is dreadful to think that women might really go for men like this.

Entertaining drivel; might be good to watch on a long flight.
