My Rebound Girl: Movie Review

By: Matt Suzara

Rocky (Alex Gonzaga), struggles to find the right person as her past relationships didn't end well. She promised herself not to experience the same heartaches from her previous partners and made a list on how not to be a rebound girl. However, all of her made-up rules didn't work out when she met Rich (Joseph Marco) who also came from a break-up with his six-year relationship. At first, Rocky purely hates Rich but as the time goes by, she eventually falls in love with him even she knows that she could be hurt again because of the same situation.

My Rebound Girl looks promising in the trailer but the thing is, it is really frustrating to watch. You have two charming lead stars in the mix, but it seems that they had a hard time to sell their chemistry. Some of the scenes feel forced, and some are just plainly weird. The comedy isn't much good either and even the story is simple they made it too complicated resulting to make the film's run time bloated. 

We had high hopes with the lead stars since Alex Gonzaga has a talent in comedy, and Joseph Marco has the looks to be the perfect leading man. However, Alex may have overdone her role while Joseph Marco  really struggles to hit the right spot to stand his ground.They both had the time to shine but was befuddled down by the script. 

Overall, My Rebound Girl was a complete disappointment. It had the right tools to be a memorable rom-com but sadly it can't provide the necessary things to make the entire thing work.
