Louie Jeffries is happily married to Corinne. On their first anniversary, Louie is killed crossing the road. Louie is reincarnated as Alex Finch, and twenty years later, fate brings Alex and Louie's daughter, Miranda, together. It's not until Alex is invited to Louie's home that he begins to remember his former life, wife and best friend. Of course, there's also the problem that he's attracted to Louie's/his own daughter.

Determined to present as realistic a setting as possible, Perry Howze and Randy Howze decided to employ Corinne Jeffries (Cybill Shepherd) as the curator of the Smithsonian Institute's U.S. President First Ladies' Gowns Exhibit, a show that had dazzled them when they had visited it as children. Corinne Jeffries' predicament, as invented by the Howzes, is to raise funds to enlarge the First Ladies display, through a gala event. They queried the Smithsonian, asking if this character and her plight sounded plausible. It was more than plausible. The Smithsonian, in fact, was trying to raise two million dollars for the display. Their first Ladies' Gowns Exhibit, once an extravagant show, had been reduced to one alcove, with the rest of the exhibit in storage. See more »

Another Downey must-see! If you are an obsessed fan like me, you have got to see this movie! He plays Alex Finch, a 22 year old Yale grad who realizes that the life he just came into is the life he left 26 years earlier. Alex is the re-incarnation of Louie Jeffries, a no-nonsense lawyer happily married to Corrine (Cybil Sheppard). Louie is killed on their one-year anniversary when he is hit by a car. He demands to go back, only this time in the body of Alex Finch. Enter Robert Downey Jr., a lot of confusion, and a lot of laughs.
Although this movie is 15-years old, it still makes you wonder if there really is such a thing as re-incarnation. And if so, how often to you meet the same souls life after life. I don't know the answer. But I do know that you need to see this movie. It is a riot, and Downey looks SO GOOD in a tuxedo. This film makes you believe in love, and true love never dies. It just gets recycled.
