When it comes to love, is it ever too late to take a chance?

"Utterly charming, Hoffman and Thompson make a winning combo" (Lou Lumenick, New York Post) in Last Chance Harvey as two guarded strangers who find a growing connection with one another after a chance encounter in London.

Only the Lonely
The late, great John Candy delivered the most surprising performance of his career as Danny Muldoon, a lonely Chicago policeman who still lives with his domineering mother (screen legend Maureen O'Hara in her first movie role in 20 years).

Even with the advice of his sex-obsessed partner (James Belushi) and the example of his lusty neighbor (Oscar-winner Anthony Quinn), can Danny find a way to follow his own heart without killing the meanest mother of all? Macaulay Culkin makes a cameo appearance in this unique romantic comedy written and directed by Chris Columbus (director of Home Alone) and produced by John Hughes, the creator of Uncle Buck, the Breakfast Club and Planes, Trains & Automobiles.
