Hawaiian Wipeout

In the opening scene of George Armitage's The Big Bounce, Jack Ryan (Owen Wilson) quips, "For a long time, I've been walking down the road of life with my two best friends, bad luck and bad choices." Both of them have led Wilson and the star-studded cast down to Hawaii on a terrible remake of an already awful 1969 film based on a novel by Elmore Leonard (Get Shorty). Ryan, the wild-haired surfer rebel and petty criminal, is fired from his construction job for smacking his British foreman with a baseball bat (take THAT, you cricket-lovin' fool!). Ryan is set loose in Hawaii, thanks to a pardon from the District Judge Walter Crewes (Morgan Freeman). He returns to breaking and entering and befriends the sinister -- yet scantily clad -- Nancy Hayes (Sara Foster). Nancy and Ryan collaborate to steal $200,000 from Nancy's lover and Ryan's former boss, Ray Ritchie (Gary Sinise). Ray's slimy personal assistant, Bob Rogers, Jr.
