Trivia

The plot is very similar in many ways to the Christmas classic "It's A Wonderful Life" which is loosely based on Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol". See more »

Goofs

In the flashback to the All-State High School Baseball Championship, the announcer states the game is in the bottom of the 9th with the visiting team up 3-2. High School baseball games have 7 innings. However, this could be incorrectly regarded as a goof as the game could have been in extra innings. This was not mentioned by the announcer. See more »

Quotes

Larry Joseph Burrows: Have you ever had any regrets, Clip? You know, about how your life is turned out, about the choices you made.
Clip Metzler, Larry's Best Friend: Nooo. Oh... no. I figured I didn't make out many choices. You know what my policy is? You do nothing, you see what happens. And you know what, things always are turning up fine.
Larry Joseph Burrows: Yeah, for you, Clip.

This Movie Should Make You Think...
7 September 2001 | by (Dayton, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of my favorites because it makes me think of all the choices I have made and how my life would change if my choices had been different. It plays right into the " Multiple Universe " theory.

The only thing that doesn't ring true is how Larry Burrows ( James Belushi)has such a hard time understanding what is going on, that everything has changed.
