User Reviews

Great acting and wonderful story make for a wholesome entertainment that is Chasing Destiny.
24 November 2001 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

For wholesome entertainment, Chasing Destiny is simply the best. A must-see for the hopeless romantics. Great acting from all cast members. Lauren Graham is a revelation. Her sensitive portrayal of Jessy James is awesome. Her subtle acting is so effective as to make me feel the depth of her pain and loneliness and her confusion and reluctance to fall in love. This is a feel-good honest-to-goodness movie that I will never tire watching over and over again. Lauren Graham's beauty -- lovely face -- is the best thing that ever happened to the silver screen.
