DI­REC­TOR: Hal­lie Mey­ers-Shyer

CAST: Reese Wither­spoon, Pico Alexan­der Back in 2009, Cather­ine Zeta-Jones starred in for­get­table rom-com The Re­bound, about a sin­gle mum who falls in love with her male nanny. This is es­sen­tially the same film, with Reese Wither­spoon on cougar duty as Alice, a re­cently-sep­a­rated mother-of-two who lets three guys stay in her house be­cause they are “as­pir­ing film­mak­ers”. Mm-hmm *sips tea*. Need­less to say, Alice’s re­la­tion­ship sta­tus goes from sin­gle to cray­cray, sweet­ened with syrupy South­ern charm as only Wither­spoon can de­liver. Over­all, it’s dis­ap­point­ing and like The Re­bound, would be bet­ter off going di­rect-to-DVD.
