    Synopsis


    Chances Are
    Handsome young Washington attorney Louie Jeffries (Chris McDonald) has it all: a promising career, a beautiful wife, and a baby on the way. But after discovering a local judge is in cahoots with the Mob, Louie bites it in a car crash and finds himself in Heaven. Unsatisfied with the customer service he's receiving, Louie jumps the gun and gets himself reincarnated -- before being administered the magic injection that will remove his memories of his former life. For the next quarter-century, Louie's museum curator wife, Corinne (Cybill Shepherd), remains true to her husband's memory, ignoring the frustrated devotion of Louie's best friend, Philip Train (Ryan O'Neal). Meanwhile, Louie's soul grows up in the body of Alex Finch (Robert Downey Jr.), an aspiring journalist. Alex's memories of his life as Louie return after he becomes romantically involved with Miranda (Mary Stuart Masterson) -- the daughter he never got to meet. Soon, Alex/Louie is romancing his wife, spurning his daughter's advances, and frustrating Philip's attempts finally to woo Corinne. Written by Mystic Pizza scribes Perry and Randy Howze and directed by Emile Ardolino of Dirty Dancing fame, Chances Are didn't score as well at the box office as those earlier comedies. Its soundtrack, however, generated the hit Peter Cetera and Cher ballad "After All." ~ Brian J. Dillard, Rovi

      Always liked this film, so was glad when it was released on blu-ray. For $7.99, it's worth the price. If you already own the dvd, the upgrade to blu-ray isn't noticeable enough to justify replacing it, but, again, it's only $7.99. The movie itself is fun: A young Downey Jr. is good in his role (altho he does always tend to overact). Still, fun to watch over and over again.

      Have always loved this movie! It was nice to see it on blu-ray, picture quality was really good! My daughters finally saw it and they really enjoyed as well! They were surprised to see Robert Downey Jr. in a different and funny role other than Iron Man!! Highly recommend.

      CHANCES ARE is a charming romantic fantasy about a woman (Cybill Shepherd) whose husband (Christopher McDonald) is killed shortly after learning she is pregnant. Enter Robert Downey Jr. as the re-incarnated husband after nearly two decades later trying to be a part of her life again!!! Great soundtrack too!!!

      A great late '80s comedy, starring a young Downey, looks and sounds great on Blu-ray. I don't think they did much in terms of remastering, but the image quality is solid.

      CHANCES are... I Luv it! I have been waiting a long time for this. I actually had to go back and purchase a 2nd cause my sister wanted the first one after years of searching. A must have for romantic comedies from the 80'S TYPE MOVIES!!

      This is a older movie that we have not seen and was delighted when I was able to purchase it from BestBuy at a good price so my wife and I can watch it anytime we want.

      Chances Are - A comedy classic

      Chances Are is a terrific comedy starring a young Robert Downey Jr. in top form, along with Sybil Shepard, and Ryan O'Neil. Cybil's reincarnated husband returns to their family circle years later with hilarious results!
