Good late 80's flick...
28 January 2001 | by (Las Vegas, Nevada) – See all my reviews

In the movie Another Chance, I think that the idea of the actor bombing out in Hollywood, then having to work as his own celebrity look-alike was excellent! The sound, the music and the photography were'nt so great though. Could've been better. Everything considered, I'd give it a rating of 7 overall.
