In CHANCES ARE, the irresistible romantic comedy of two lifetimes, Cybill Shepherd stars as Corinne Jeffries, a beautiful young woman whose picture-perfect marriage comes to a shattering halt when her husband Louie dies unexpectedly. Fortunately, Louie gets a second shot at life when he agrees to be "recycled" back to earth as the newborn Alex Finch (Robert Downey, Jr.) But fate crosses Alex's path twenty-three years later when he meets Corinne's daughter Miranda (Mary Stuart Masterson), and is suddenly flooded with a wealth of memories that all belong to Louie! Now, as Alex's former existence slowly comes to life, he must confront a wife who thinks he's dead, a daughter who could be his girlfriend and best friend (Ryan O'Neal) who's in love with Corinne. From Dirty Dancing director Emile Ardolino comes this heartwarming comedy that gives romance an unforgettable second chance.

As weird as fate has it in store, he is brought back to the people of his past life, 20 years later and only then does he start remembering his old life and the love of his past life, the mother of his love interest in this new life! From here you can imagine the problems that develop. Ultimately you might end up shedding some tears because of the tensions from the past love triangle with Phillip, Louie's best friend who also love's and adores Corinne. After Louie died, Phillip was always by Corinne's side but because she never let go of loving Louie, she never opened up to loving Phillip when he was always there for her.
This movie is so touching, so warm, and so beautiful for a stated comedy. I remember watching this movie as a child and it was appropriate for me to watch granted I could not fully grasp what was going on from the viewpoint of a child. In any case this movie is a definite MUST to have in any collection of DVD's. It's purity in portraying love and tickling our notion of reincarnation is what makes this movie so special, at least for me. Please give it a try and watch!
One part about this worth mentioning, the case claims this is supposed to be widescreen but it is not. I prefer widescreen over fullscreen but not going to lose sleep over it.
A very warm & heart felt film that has much replay value. I have looked over this film many times over the years and it is very nice looking at again, and again:)
Strong recommendation to add this film to your collection!
It's a cute story and one of those feel-good 90's movies that some of us long for these days. I loved this one, would see it again an then again too.
