'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".

Emma Caulfield was originally cast to play the role of Heidi and has a scene where James Marsters character of Simon spills a drink of her in a restaurant. But the scene was accidentally taped over during a rush in filming and since Caulfield was unable to come back for a re-shoot, her character was replaced by Laura Boyd Rhodes and the restaurant scene was not re-shot.

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 ...

Currently, to my knowledge, this movie does not yet have a distributor, which makes me sad to think everyone who should see this movie may not get the chance. But I can assure you, it is well worth the effort to seek it out. Hopefully, it will find its way to many more film festivals like the Sidewalk Film Festival in Birmingham, AL, which gave Chance its world premiere. If they have a film festival in your area, tell them they need to get this film!
As a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Angel, I can almost assure you that if you are a fan as well, you'll love this movie for the actors alone. If you've witnessed the outstanding work of Amber Benson, James Marsters, and Andy Halett, you already know they are amazing to watch. Not only can you see these actors in a completely new element, but there are wonderful moments you can only appreciate if you're a Buffy or Angel fan.
But this is not to say you must be a fan of these shows to enjoy this movie. In fact, you need not know who any of these people are to see that Chance has an air of magic about it.
First of all, I must state what a wonderful narrative voice Amber presented in this movie. When Chance (the title character) comes on screen and talks directly to the camera, you are always right there with her. She is your guide to her own life and what a wonderful guide she is. You're always waiting to hear what she'll say next and to see how she'll react to the situations she finds herself in.
And funny! I did not expect to laugh so much. Amber conveys such a quick and biting wit that you can't help but sit back and laugh. Chance is not afraid to say what others wouldn't dare, and you love her for it.
Not to give anything away, but I also have to comment on the movie's delightful balladeer. The songs wonderfully mirror the action, and much like Chance herself, they help bring to light those things we all think but would never say aloud.
This movie is the journey of one girl to make sense of the things in her life. From the moment you meet Chance, you quickly get on board to see where she'll take you and the discoveries she'll make. You get to meet a lot of interesting characters on the way, and in the end, you just may make a few discoveries on your own.
Getting to see the world premiere of this movie was truly one of the greatest experiences of my life. This movie is a complete joy to watch, whether you're a devoted Buffy or Amber fan, or just a person who likes to watch a great movie now and then.
Until this movie is picked up by a distributor, it may be hard to find, so I urge you to check other film festivals and the official website for more information, and don't miss your chance to see this movie.
