Cybill Shepherd stars in "Chances Are" as a Washington, D.C., professional woman whose husband is killed in a traffic accident in the early 1960s. Years pass and then decades, and she still treasures her love in her heart.Meanwhile, we get another one of those standard movie fantasies of heaven, in which everyone walks around on white clouds and speaks English and looks like they were painted by Norman Rockwell.And we discover that it's time for the soul of Shepherd's dead husband to be recycled back to earth again.It's really at this point that the movie begins; everything earlier has just been laying the foundations.It is also at this point that I had better stop describing the details, because "Chances Are" has a lot of fun with the implications of its plot.(Why don't they ever try a variation on this theme, and have the reborn husband come back as a yak breeder from Tibet?

He co-stars with James Woods in the current "True Believer," where he is almost acted off the screen by Woods, but here he is filled with confidence at the emotional center of "Chances Are." He's uneven, but he's got the stuff.And the good news is that if you fancy a splurge, they're available to buy now (click right).
