Hopefully someday we'll look at Taking Chances as just a flash of a very specific time in our nation's history and we'll be able to laugh at more than just the elements that make it a really solid comedy.

Watched most of this after picking up a copy for $2. Wish I had listened to the reviews! What a dull movie. Very uninteresting storyline, light on the romance. I think this is meant to be political. Big yawn. Getting redonated tomorrow!

When Chace discovers that an Indian casino is about to be built over the town's historic battlefield, Chase Revere, the self-appointed protector of a small town's rather meager place in American history joins forces with sexy but dangerous town siren Lucy Shanks to launch an all-out offensive against the project - earning the wrath of the entire town, who believe that the casino will save their decaying local community.

Little off beat comedy that had it's funny moments. Rob Corddry lays out some good one-liners. His performance was really the only thing I enjoyed in this movie. It ran a bit long for the story that is being told. Had some really quirky characters. All in all just OK. Nothing special.

Pretty boring! A few parts are funny but they try tooo much to make it funny when it is a wannabe political funny movie lol.
