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!!!

    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!
