Great directing.
24 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

"After seeing Bruce Greenwood in RULES OF ENGAGEMENT I decided to rent other films that he starred in. I found a delightful low budget film of his---I liked his performance in ANOTHER CHANCE better than RULES OF ENGAGEMENT. What a film! I loved it. I give it a nine."
