Living the part of your life you wished were better is something that many of us have wished we could do, but for Larry Burrows, it becomes reality in "Mr. Destiny."
Jim Belushi definitely played his best part in this well-done film about second chances. The character of Larry Burrows is believable and is like many blue-collar workers in America. Burrows is the kind of person that lets everyone go ahead of him, with out trying to get ahead himself.
The chemistry between Belushi and Linda Hamilton as Ellen is very charming, something that many loving couples have. Michael Caine was also superb as Mike, who actually creeped me out the first time I saw this, which was at least 10 years ago. It was amazing to see how contrasted his normal life was as opposed to his "rich life." People liked him in his ordinary life, but he was feared and despised in his "rich life."
In my opinion, this film teaches a very important lesson: Life is what you make of it, and one should be thankful of what they have, and what helped them get there. Destiny is what shapes us, and good things will definitely come our way.
RATING: ****1/2 out of 5. Excellent!:)
