Product description

Product Description

Charlie Lang (Nicolas Cage) is an honest but poor cop who becomes an instant celebrity when he wins the lottery, and gives half of it to Yvonne (Bridget Fonda), a waitress to whom he had promised a share of the fortune should his number come up that day. This beneficent act is not appreciated by Lang's avaricious wife, Muriel (Rosie Perez), who becomes increasingly estranged from her husband as her new-found riches lead her to ever dizzier social heights. Meanwhile, the more selfless Charlie and Yvonne find themselves being drawn closer and closer together.

From Amazon.co.uk

Inspired by an actual incident, this unassuming, wonderfully good-natured romantic comedy tells the story of a New York City street cop named Charlie (Nicolas Cage) who makes a promise to a coffee-shop waitress named Yvonne (Bridget Fonda) that will change both their lives. One day after coffee, Charlie is embarrassed to discover he doesn't have money for a tip, so he tells Yvonne that he'll share half of his winnings if the lottery ticket he's holding comes up a winner. Sure enough, he wins the jackpot--a whopping US$4 million payoff--and Charlie's wife, Muriel (Rosie Perez), goes ballistic when he tells her about his deal with Yvonne. From this point, It Could Happen to You follows Charlie's dilemma as he is forced to decide the proper course of action, and director Andrew Bergman smoothly incorporates a gentle love story into this amusing crisis of conscience. Fonda and Cage have an easygoing chemistry that adds a pleasant touch to the movie's fairy-tale plot, and It Could Happen to You's kindhearted sentiment is never so thick that it becomes sticky-sweet or artificial. As feel-good comedies go, this one's a class act. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

DVD x 3 'It could happen to you' was awful as regards the speech of one of the women, I had to switch it off, but the other 2 DVD's in the pack 'My Best Friends Wedding' and 'Sleepless in Seatle' were worth the money, very entertaining.

Aren't we all just suckers for the nice little morality tale that puts us into that 'spirit-of-man' mood? And why not? Here is one such pleasant little movie, one that's good to curl up with in front of a glowing fire when it's blowing a winter hooligan outside. It's not on earth-shaker, nor does it pretend to be. In fact, the simple premise of the story - nice, put-upon cop splits his lottery winnings with nice, put-upon waitress - may be a slight stretch of reality too far, but hey, it's just a fable. And in fables, most everyone gets their just deserts, which is exactly what we find here: there are no surprises, we just enjoy the ride and want to push Charlie and Yvonne closer together - WE know they're made for each other! Nic Cage is rather good at this light 'everyman' sort of role and far more comfortable than more recent sci-fi or thrill-seeking outings, whilst Bridget Fonda makes a sweet partner as the warm-hearted, vulnerable waitress. You could say they both have little to do but be nice: that would be unkind since they have chemistry and work their corners convincingly, they get us rooting for them against hiss-boo lawyer Richard Jenkins and Charlie's shrewish wife Rosie Perez - along with her grating Latino-New York accent, the only jarring element in the picture is how Charlie came to be married to this harpy in the first place! However, Isaac Hayes' guardian angel in the form of a New York journalist ensures that triumph follows pathos and the glow - predictably - returns to our hearts, subtly swept along by the fairy dust of Carter Burwell's music score. It may sound trite but if you don't expect too much, the magic works well. This movie won't change your life, but it will probably brighten your day, and what's wrong with that?
