Terrible acting and Ryan O'Neal; is just annoying

First of all , the plot is not original. The whole reincarnated person comedy has been done in older movies which were far better than this drivel. A young Robert Downey is cute but not convincing in the lead role of Alex who is also the reincarnated man Louie. Cybil Shepherd is miscast as the love interest of Louie named Corrinne - she kind of sleepwalks through scenes. Ryan O'Neal is extremely annoying as their friend Philip- trying too hard to be funny and charming which he is neither - I especially don't like that fact that at the beginning of the movie when Corrine is getting married to Louie,Philip as the best man whispers to Louie as she is walking down the aisle that he is in love with Corrine. Who the hell says that to the groom at his own wedding? and Louie simply responds "I know" What BS!

And the fact that Corrine ends up with Philip at the end of the movie stinks. He was a no good jerk. And Mary Stuart Masterson is just a waste as Miranda - She is a boring unattractive actress if you can call her that.

The ending is a bad cliché of repeating the same scene but making it happy. In the end Philip is waiting at the altar for Corrine when they see Miranda walk up in her bridesmaid dress just before Corrine when Alex whispers to Philip "Im in love with Miranda" and Philip says "I know".

Wonderfully Uplifting

Chances Are is one of my very favourite movies, and certainly my most favourite RomCom. It's delightful, feel good, has a lovely storyline and plot, great soundtrack. It's so uplifting and although I have seen it a number of times over the years, and was so pleased when I was able to get my own copy of the film, it never fails to entertain me.

The performances of the leading stars - Ryan O'Neal, a young Robert Downey Jr, and Cybill Shepherd - are a joy to behold. Chances Are has an excellent script that still makes me laugh even though I have heard the jokes a number of times. It's frequently hilarious without slapstick humour, foul language, and graphic scenes of a sexual nature. It's fine for family viewing at PG rating.

But it's not all laughs in Chances Are as there are many touching moments that might pull a few heartstrings of those who have loved and lost. It has it's corny moments but that's forgivable as otherwise it's great fun.

I'm a fan of Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man) and Ryan O'Neal is more than a pretty face (He's great in The Man Upstairs with Katharine Hepburn - if you ever get the chance to see this hard to find film).

awkward premise

Corinne (Cybill Shepherd) and Louie Jeffries (Christopher McDonald) are expecting their first child. He's a prosecutor in Washington, D.C. He loses his case. Based on a tip from his best friend reporter Philip Train (Ryan O'Neal), he discovers that Judge Fenwick was bought off. He dies in an accident before he could see his child born. In the after-life, he is in a rush to return to his life. Before his memories are wiped, he races to be reborn. Years later, Alex Finch (Robert Downey Jr.) meets Miranda Jeffries (Mary Stuart Masterson) at Yale. Alex eventually remembers that he was Louie and Miranda is Louie's daughter.

It's charming and cute. Downey has wonderfully undeniable charms. The only thing holding me back is that awkward connection between Alex and Miranda. It's sort of psychic incest. I would have kept him with Cybill Shepherd all the way to the end. They are a fun pairing. It would also solidify them as true love beyond all barriers.
