The message behind the film is lovely, and fairly obvious from the trailer and the start of the film. It's enjoyable and a feel good film. There are moments when the speed of the actors speech / delivery of their interactions seems oddly slow, but I think that's more to do with the age of the film, perhaps also the ages of the actors (much younger than in the roles we tend to identify them more strongly with). I enjoyed it though!

Imagine if one day, out of the blue, your wildest dreams came true! That's exactly what happens to junior executive Larry Burrows (James Belushi) when he bumps into a mysterious stranger (Michael Caine). Instantly, Larry's ho-hum life becomes his ultimate fantasy -- huge mansion, beautiful wife, cars galore. But before long, his new lifestyle isn't so enchanting. Ultimately, Larry discovers it's going to take a lot more than wishful thinking to get back to where he once belonged.

Only James Belushi can take a formula story and turn it into a fun to watch script. Even when you know how it will turn out in the end, the details and how they evolve are fun to watch over and over. And there is a great supporting cast. You could tell where this movie was going when Jewel Jagger (Courteney Cox) threatens to fork Larry Burrows (James Belushi) to death.
Larry Burrows is unhappy with his life and pins most of it on the fact that he swung too late and misses t the ball in a game and in life. Michael Caine as Mr. Destiny gives Larry a new chance be the person he wanted to be. But will he like his new life?

The soundtrack is still available Mr. Destiny (1990 Film)

Larry Burrows has the distinct feeling he's missing out on something. Ever since he missed a crucial baseball shot at school that cost the championship, he's been convinced his life would have turned out better had he made that shot. Then one night his car breaks down again. Walking into the nearest bar to wait for the tow truck, Larry happens upon barman Mike, who unbeknown to Larry is about to change his life for ever.......

The alternate life premise in cinema is hardly a new thing, stretching back to the likes of It's A Wonderful Life and showing no signs of abating with the quite recent Sandler vehicle that was Click. It's a genre that has produced very mixed results. Back in 1990 was this James Belushi led production, rarely mentioned when the said topic arises, it appears that it has largely been forgotten. Which is a shame since it oozes charm and is not short in the humour department. We know that we are being led to its ultimate message come the end, but it's a fun and enjoyable path to be led down. The film also serves notice to what a fine comedy actor James Belushi was. I mean if his style of smart quipping and larking exasperation isn't your thing? Then chances are you would avoid this film anyway. But for those engaged by the likes of Red Heat, K-9 and Taking Care of Business, well Mr. Destiny is right up your street. Along for the ride are Linda Hamilton, Michael Caine, Jon Lovitz, Hart Bochner, Jay O. Sanders, Rene Russo and Courteney Cox.

Mr. Destiny, pure escapist fun with a kicker of a message at its heart. 7/10

A fun sojourn into retro 80's lightweight humour. If anything it evokes the feeling of the classic 'it's a wonderful life' with Belushi playing the part of a man who wished his life had been different, blaming it on one specific event in his past. Enter Mr Destiny, delightfully played by Michael Caine, and you have the Clarence of the modern era. The film is riddled with cliche's and is entirely predictable, but leaves you appreciating the things you have, not the things you think you should have.

Tricky to find a region 2 copy of this film, but it is well worth the effort. This is a lovely movie from the days when quirky comedies were colourful and had a plot. Nice acting from Belushi and Caine, with a good supporting cast. This is a thought provoking story with a great feel good factor.
A forgotten gem.
