Linda Hamilton''s character's maiden name is Ellen Ripley. Linda Hamilton went on to marry James Cameron (1997-1999), who directed Aliens (1986), where Ellen Ripley is the protagonist. Further, this is first of two movies, involving alternate time lines, that stars Linda Hamilton. The second of course, would be Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). See more »
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 »
I just watched this movie yesterday on cable, and i really enjoyed it. Ok, it´s not the greatest movie ever, but i would recommend this movie to everyone who wants to see a simple movie, wich in the end makes us think, even if it is for a little while. Everyone has thought even once what if we hadn´t choosed a particular path in our lives, and this is what this movie is about. About the "IF" and about what might have happened. This is a story about a guy, who thought a bad event from his teen years, had ruined is entire life, then he is sent by some spiritual entity to a parallel universe in which that bad thing never happened and he gets to experience first hand what would have happened in his life, if his life had followed this other path. After this he learns that, there are good and bad moments in every ones lives independent of what lifes we live.
And so we have a very good movie. This is one of those movies, that we watch, and quickly forgget, but sometimes when somebody mentions it, we imediatly recall all the details. It is one of those movies that we always remember even if it is from time to time.
Another peculiar thing is MR.DESTINY is filled with familiar faces in every corner. From James Beluchi and Linda Hamilton to Michael Cane ,and we can spend the whole movie recognizing actors, wich is also fun.
So i don´t have much more to say, except that i really recomend this movie.
Very simple, but very good and very cute too. It realy puts a smile on our face by the end of it. So watch it, and be happy.
