Chance 2009 NR

Amazon Instant Video

(8)

Chance is a screwball romantic comedy about one nutty girl's search for Mr. Right (in all the wrong places). Using a non-linear framework, Chance explores the inner-workings of a young woman's mind through a pastiche of flashbacks, direct to camera monologues and complete surreality.

It was a fun watch!!!!!

If you watch this, you will probably end up like me, giggling through the whole movie, not a bad way to spend an hour and a half.

Chance is a quirky, feel-good romantic comedy that plays with the ways people open up to each other. Whether its slacker trust-fund baby Chance, her nerdy neighbor, new-age mother, or her best friend Simon (who has been crashing on her sofa for a year) the characters reveal their deepest feelings in totally unexpected ways.

Chance is a low-budget effort, and it shows--the camera work, lighting, and sound are pretty uninspired. There is also little in the way of non-diegetic music, although Grant Langston was effective in the role of a troubador/Greek chorus/busker.

If you're a Buffy/Angel fan, you'll get a kick out of seeing Amber Benson, James Marsters, and Andy Hallett playing roles so different from the ones they played on televison. And if you're a pathetic geeked-out Buffy fanatic (and I am) you'll enjoy seeing 1) The Bronze appearing as one of the sets; 2. Amber Benson and James Marsters wearing Oz's Dragon Inn t-shirt; 3. Spike with an American accent; 4. Tara kissing a boy; 5. Lorne sans horns and green makeup.

As a fan of Angel the Series, I'll admit I was mostly interested in this film to see Andy Hallett. It was bittersweet to see members of the Buffy and Angel cast together again, in roles so different than their roles on those shows. It's a sweet, quirky little film about letting down walls and taking chances, and gives you a few things to think about regarding gender roles in relationships. I laughed out loud a couple of times, and ached a little at seeing Andy Hallett in a rare part without his Lorne makeup.

For a low budget, very independant film, i was very entertained. Watching Amber Benson in this (btw she's an awesome writer)is like watching Betty White in Lake Placid dropping F-bombs everywhere. You don't expect it, especially if you've only seen her play Tare in BTVS (awesome show!)so it's crack up to see her play this type of character. i ended up buying this movie, and am so glad i did, it's become one of my favorite movies to watch. If you watch this, you will probably end up like me, giggling through the whole movie, not a bad way to spend an hour and a half. I think my favorite scene is when Rory pulls Chance into his car to talk to her, the poor guy doesn't get a chance (pun not intended....maybe) to reply to any of the rantings she gives him. Everything he says to her gets turned around and she ends up making him cry.....nice! BTW seeing James Marsters in a dress is a nice added bonus! Oh, just found out too that Joss Whedon (hope my source is correct on this) wrote the opening song "Burn me Down" which is really catchy, i find myseld singing it in my head all the time now. Watch it, it's worth it!

This is a very sweet and quirky low-budget movie written & directed by (and starring) Amber Benson, fom Buffy the Vampire Slayer. A couple other Buffy alums show up in this movie as well. Although this is billed as a quirky story about a young woman trying to find Mr. Right, that makes it sound a lot more stupid and boring than it actually is. The characters in this movie are very cool and interesting. James Marsters is adorable. I'd say this is defnitely a chick fluck (a guy I watched it with found it boring) but it goes beyond the genre. I'd like to watch this again.
