'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".Written by

When you're a little kid, you never think you're gonna die. I mean death is just some ...

...because, unfortunately, that's probably the only way you'll see it--by buying it on DVD. The film deserved a broader distribution; pity it didn't get it.
Amber Benson may just be a female Kevin Smith--what a concept! Smith fans would certainly find a lot to like here, especially the smart, funny, salty dialogue, the wonderfully low-budget production values, as well as the f****d-up but very likeable leads. Add the movie's very funny but ultimately touching treatment of modern relationships, and it reminded me of Chasing Amy, one of my favorite films.
I look forward to watching Amber's career; buy and watch the film now so when she makes her own "Lost in Translation" in a few years, you can say you were there at the beginning.
