1989: Chances Are

IMDB says... A reincarnated man unknowingly falls in love with his own daughter from his previous life. Once he realizes this, he tries to end their relationship before angels erase his memory.

Deep Cut Recommendations

As we all know, IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes and awesome places like that will always give you some recommendations… People who liked THIS also liked THIS. Your Most Excellent Hosts have their own recommendations, perhaps a bit further off the beaten track.

Krissy recommends Heart and Souls (1993). IMDB Says…  A businessman is reunited with the four lost souls who were his guardian angels during childhood, all with a particular purpose to joining the afterlife. And Krissy recommends men in their 50s… just because.

Nathan thinks you should watch a farce which is …a comic dramatic work using buffoonery and horseplay and typically including crude characterization and ludicrously improbable situations. Maybe check out Noises Off or Death at a Funeral?

Next up in our “Wait, you’ve never seen THAT!?!” Double Feature! It’s The Last Starfighter from 1984. IMDB says… Video game expert Alex Rogan finds himself transported to another planet after conquering The Last Starfighter video game only to find out it was just a test. He was recruited to join the team of best starfighters to defend their world from the attack.
