Storyline

'Chance' is a black comedy about how hard it is to find "the one". Mostly told from the point-of-view of a young, sexually aggressive woman, named Chance, whom according to her: "we're all out there looking for true love", which turns out to be a very elusive thing indeed, and Chance is no exception. She's desperately on the prowl for a man, but since she's more mouse than cat, she get's herself into scrape after scrape in her screwball pursuit of love. Surrounded by a bevy of adoring but completely wrong-for-her men (and one dead girl from Manchester, England), Chance has to pick her way through her messy life in order to figure out which guy is "it".

Quotes

[first lines]
Chance: [voiceover] All right, you live your life in a totally normal, full on reality check kind of way. That's good and cool. Things don't get messed up. People you love hang around until you can't stand them anymore. Things never change. But shit like that doesn't happen in real life. Real life is just a movie with someone's finger jammed on fast forward. The numbers change faster than you can count. When you're a little kid, you never think you're gonna die. I mean death is just some ...

Wow, that was AWFUL
11 October 2003 | by (Saskatoon, Canada) – See all my reviews

So I came on here, saw a 9.1 rating, and thought, wow!

Was I ever disappointed.

This movie rates somewhere around a 3 out of 10. I've seen worse, granted, but never in a film I had recommended to me. I've never seen a film called "good" yet contain such horrid acting until now. The feinting scenes were an exceptionally poor nightmare, and I really, really wanted to stop watching. The only reason I did not was so I could legitimately advertise how horrible the movie was without feeling guilty for not having finished it.

Highly recommended that anyone with a brain, or anyone looking for a movie to enjoy, avoid this. I can't get over the fact that it was recommended, considering its lack of quality. Buffy the Vampire Slayer actors or not, they couldn't do anything with this lame, going-nowhere, unbelievable (literally, not in a *wow* way) script. The cinematography was bad, the acting was bad, the script was worse, and most of all, they seemed to try to get places with cross dressing, a lesbian scene, etc and all it did was make it that much *worse.*

If you like yourself, save yourself one hour and seventeen minutes. Avoid this.
