Chances Are is a 1989 unique comedy film starring Chris McDonald (Requiem for a Dream, Happy Gilmore), Cybill Shepherd (The Last Picture Show, Taxi Driver), and Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man, Sherlock Holmes, Tropic Thunder). Louie Jeffries (Chris McDonald) seems to have the perfect life. With a lucrative job as a district attorney, a wonderful wife named Corrine (Cybill Shepherd), and kids on the way, things couldn't get much better for Jeffries. However, one day, during a sad turn of events, Jeffries is killed in a car crash. As his spirit approaches the glistening gates of heaven, he decides he is not ready to leave his life behind him, and opts to get reincarnated instead. Jeffries returns to Earth as a young Yale graduate named Alex (Robert Downey Jr.). As Alex, Jeffries learns that despite the twenty three years that have elapsed since his death, his wife Corrine remains entirely devoted to his memory. He also learns that his former friend Phillip Tain (Ryan O'Neal) has cared for Corrine and his daughter Miranda (Mary Stuart Masterson) since his departure from Earth. It is clear Phillip is after Corrine. And although Jeffries now has a second chance at life, he realizes he does not want what he once had anymore. The story that unfurls is both shocking and hilarious. Two thumbs up!moreless
