Editorial Reviews

Imagine if one day, out of the blue, your wildest dreams came true! That's exactly what happens to junior executive Larry Burrows (James Belushi -- TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS) when he bumps into a mysterious stranger (Michael Caine -- MISS CONGENIALITY, CIDER HOUSE RULES). Instantly, Larry's ho-hum life becomes his ultimate fantasy -- huge mansion, beautiful wife, cars galore. But before long, his new lifestyle isn't so enchanting. Ultimately, Larry discovers it's going to take a lot more than wishful thinking to get back to where he once belonged! Co-starring Linda Hamilton and comedian Jon Lovitz, MR. DESTINY is a delightful rags-to-riches comedy brimming with totally magical entertainment!

Would love to see this released again--including DVD. It is a movie you MUST have in your collection. Like "It's a Wonderful Life", it makes you realize what you have is maybe all you REALLY want.

Mr. Destiny is not only fun entertainment, it deals with the question every person asks at some time in their life: How would my life be different now if only I had....? James Belushi charmingly plays the man who lost his job, and finds himself wishing he could change his past and start over. He finds his chance to do just that after a little magical intervention by Mr. Destiny (Michael Caine). With just one change in his past...from losing the big baseball game, to winning it, Belushi's life takes a different path. Suddenly plopped into his new life, with a different wife and a different job, he encounters many troublesome adventures...humorous for the viewer, but disastrous for Belushi. Just at the point of hopelessness, Mr. Destiny intervenes again, but I won't give away anymore of the plot here. I loved Belushi's character... in spite of his troubles, he confronts all situations with grace and humor. The movie is sweet, funny, and even carries an encouraging message: Don't regret the past, but go forward and make the best of what you've got!

It's been 5 years since I last saw this movie, but it sticks in my head like yesterday. Jim Beulushi is awesome in Mr. Destiny, along with his co-stars, Linda Hamilton and Renee Russo. I have been looking everywhere for this video. I would love to see Amazon.com release this movie for viewers like myself. I'd be grateful.

how often do you wonder if an event in your life would have had an impact on your future??? what if you would have a chance to re-live that moment once again??? would your life be differnt??? too many times we torment our present lives only to realize that we are better off the way we now live. after seeing this movie you realize that just like in "The Wizard of Oz" or "It's a Wonderful Life" happiness is always in front of you and the past is just a lesson in becoming a a better person cause you appreciate what you have and not what you might have had. :O) great family movie and it should be re-released.

When I first heard of this movie's general plotline, I thought it would be obvious and filled with cliches and, well, I was right. The story about a man going "back" to a high school baseball game to see what his future would look like if he hit a homerun hardly sounds new. However James Belushi, with his easygoing charm, and the rest of the cast can't be beat. Predictable as the story may be, it still has some very funny and even touching moments and is great if you're looking for a movie which doesn't involve much thinking.

This movie is awesome! If you have ever wondered why life is the way it is, or what if that one thing you [messed] up could have been changed, than this movie will really catch your attention. It is filled with comedy, drama, and just plain fun. The acting is superb, the characters are well thought out, and the story line is excellent. An interesting tid bit: Part of this movie was filmed at the Biltmore Mansion in Ashville, NC. This movie is absolutely one of my favorites, I will be preordering this one for sure! Four words: A modern day classic!

This is a real sleeper, I found it late one night on HBO or showtime, John Belushi is great and with supporting actors like Michael Cane, this is a great movie, leaves you feeling good about life!
