A lot of fun.
A potentially charming premise yields only a handful of chuckles.
This went direct to video in Britain, but as latter-day Hollywood romantic comedies go, it has a bit more style than you might expect.
Emile Ardolino, who directed Dirty Dancing, leaves the film hovering halfway between dewy romance and bedroom farce, but he displays little of the sharpness or comic timing needed for either one.
As love interests go, Shepherd and Downey are about as hot as Ike and Mamie Eisenhower, though the apoplectic Downey does have his comedic moments.
O'Neal's performance, on the other hand, could incite angels to throw tomatoes from heaven.
As a featherweight trifle rooted in young death, an endless mourning process, and quasi-incestuous stirrings, the film suffers from jarring tonal shifts on a continual basis.
[Blu-ray Review] Worthy of being rediscovered by fans of any of the actors or '80s comfort-food movie enthusiasts in general, "Chances Are" earns a recommendation.
This whimsical fantasy-comedy of reincarnation is well acted by Robert Downey Jr.
Among the best of the body-switch films that cluttered movie screens in the late 1980s.
Chances Are is an entertaining romantic comedy.
Dull romantic comedy
The cinematic counterpart to Heart and Souls; it's the other movie in which RDJ's body is taken over by restless ghouls. It's really funny and has a dynamite cast. The story is ridiculous at times, but i'm pretty sure that the intent of the movie was to play around with how bizarre ghost stories come off sometimes. When it want's to be, this has a great dramatic love story that spans over half a lifetime. The characters are believable as real people and their eventual conflict with RDJ having the soul of shooter MCGavin locked inside him.
Personally, I have a soft spot for Robert Downey Jr. films from the 90's, and Cybill Shepherd has always been a favorite of mine. That's the main reason I liked the film. It was zany, romantic, and funny. I'm sure people disagree based on their own agendas or views, but that's how I felt about the film, honestly.
Weird, but funny and adorable.
A reasonable romantic fantasy in which Cybill Shepherd's husband is reincarnated in the form of Robert Downet Jr., and proceeds to continue to woo her from beyond the grave. The criminal conspiracy sub plot seems tacked on, but Downey Jr. and Ryan O'Neil are affable romantic competitors and it has some modicom of charm. But doesn't anyone else find it just a little WRONG that the guy ends up sleeping with his own daughter...?!
