Film Review - Chances Are (1989)
Chances Are stars Robert Downey Jr. as Alex Finch, a Yale Graduate who takes the fancy of Miranda Jefferies played by Mary Stuart Masterson, but when the two go to her house and Alex meets her mother Corrine played by Cybil Sheppard, Alex starts getting strange memories.
Chances Are is a fun movie with several scenes that made laugh out loud and is also nicely anchored by Downey, Masterson, Sheppard and Ryan O'Neal but if the film has a failing it's with the slightly convoluted storyline that goes into all of these different directions regarding the main characters and though it nicely tied together in the end, I couldn't help but think that this was a big problem.
All in all, a fun movie that slightly overcomes its script problems, 3 out of 5.
