Great movie (with some young actors that are still in the business). Goes to show you that even if your dreams come true, there's more to life.

This movie was so different from any movie I had seen that I just had to buy it. (Of course that was when I saw it in the theatre). Love it.

I watched this movie when I was younger with my parents. It teaches valuable lessons everyone should know, so hopefully they won't have to experience it themselves. It makes you think twice about always wondering what your life would have have been like if you had just...!

Feel-good movie
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Would love to see this released again--including DVD. It is a movie you MUST have in your collection. Like "It's a Wonderful Life", it makes you realize what you have is maybe all you REALLY want."
Go forward with your life!

"Mr. Destiny is not only fun entertainment, it deals with the question every person asks at some time in their life: How would my life be different now if only I had....? James Belushi charmingly plays the man who lost his job, and finds himself wishing he could change his past and start over. He finds his chance to do just that after a little magical intervention by Mr. Destiny (Michael Caine). With just one change in his past...from losing the big baseball game, to winning it, Belushi's life takes a different path. Suddenly plopped into his new life, with a different wife and a different job, he encounters many troublesome adventures...humorous for the viewer, but disastrous for Belushi. Just at the point of hopelessness, Mr. Destiny intervenes again, but I won't give away anymore of the plot here. I loved Belushi's character... in spite of his troubles, he confronts all situations with grace and humor. The movie is sweet, funny, and even carries an encouraging message: Don't regret the past, but go forward and make the best of what you've got!"
An unforgetable Movie

"It's been 5 years since I last saw this movie, but it sticks in my head like yesterday. Jim Beulushi is awesome in Mr. Destiny, along with his co-stars, Linda Hamilton and Renee Russo. I have been looking everywhere for this video. I would love to see release this movie for viewers like myself. I'd be grateful."
