Sweet, sappy, classic '80s love story. Great chick flick and Peter Cetera makes it all the more memorable.

A sweet uplifting movie.

"Chances Are portrays the power of love and understanding in a comedic way. If you love good old sentimental movies with a splash of comedy, as well as a great soundtrack, check out Chances Are! Soundtrack includes Cher and Peter Cetera singing that popular and beautiful song After All, as well as Johnny Mathis' Chances Are and Rod Stewart's Forever Young."
Absolutely Adorable!

"This is my favorite Robert Downey film. It's a completely sappy 80's movie, but that just gives it more charm.Robert Downey plays a recent college grad (Louie) who is the reincarnated soul of Cybil Shephard's husband. When he meets her daughter, they hit it off. Louie begins remembering things from his former life, frightening the (still mourning over her husband) living daylights out of Corinne. Louie must prove to Corrine that he's not making everything up, or he'll lose her forever.Excellent acting by the entire cast--Downey really shines. Any of you who stay in Monday nights because you don't want to miss Downey playing Larry Paul on Ally will love this movie!"
Its a very touching movie.

"Chances Are applies to all the people out there that believes that there is always a second chance for everything. The first time I watched this film,i loved it already. It tells us about a man who died right at the time that his wife is gonna have a baby. He begged the people up there to let him go back to his family again, and he came back as a guy who is so much younger than his wife. Cybill Sheperd was the perfect actress for the part of Carin and Robert Downey Jr showed that he is an actor worth of everybody's attention, he was perfect for the part of the reincarnated Louie."
