Critic Reviews for It Could Happen to You

Bergman. really brings home the homage to Capra with the pic’s warm, bordering-on-irresistible finale.

Perez has a field day as Muriel, injecting a welcome note of good old-fashioned greed into what is otherwise a relentlessly edifying story.

Sweetness is fine as far as it goes, but this oddball romance could have used a twist of lemon.

In the end, It Could Happen to You is a lot like the cop and the waitress: sweet, naive, not too smart, but likable.

If you’re looking for a late summer, “feel good” romantic comedy, there aren’t too many around more affable than this one.

Bergman never goes for heavy-handed schmaltz, and the whole movie has the same lighthearted big city spirit as the New York Post headlines that follow the story.

. generally comes off as an absolutely charming romantic comedy that benefits substantially from the unequivocal chemistry between its stars.

Writer Jane Anderson is a gifted scenarist who seems constrained by a Hollywood formula which places the happy romantic ending on the horizon like a beacon to stare at for nearly two hours.

Anderson’s script manages to be both funny and touching without lapsing into undue sentiment.

Though set at present, this schmaltzy romantic comedy might as well have been set in the 1950s or even 1930s, because at heart it’s a Capra comedy celebrating the decency of the “little people.”

Best romance ever. Real, genuine characters with real, developed relationships. Not insulting, not cutesy, just wonderful.

Loosely based on a true story, this uneven romantic comedy depicts the unexpected way in which a winning lottery ticket unites a pair of strangers. Waitress Yvonne (Bridget Fonda) first meets police officer Charlie (Nicolas Cage) when he eats in her restaurant. Realizing that he doesn’t have enough money to give her a tip, Charlie promises Yvonne to split any winnings from the lottery ticket he just bought. The skeptical Yvonne dismisses Charlie as just another cheapskate until he wins four million dollars and, much to Yvonne’s surprise, decides to honor the agreement. His action becomes front page news and wins public acclaim, but it doesn’t go over nearly so well with Charlie’s wife Muriel (Rosie Perez), who has her own plans for the money. Muriel’s shallow, greedy behavior disgusts Charlie, who finds himself spending more and more time with Yvonne, developing a friendship that threatens to blossom into something more. Jane Anderson’s screenplay stresses the relationship between Charlie and Yvonne’s characters over the situation’s comic potential; this earnest tone will please romance fans but may disappoint viewers expecting the farcical comedy of writer/director Andrew Bergman’s and Cage’s previous effort, Honeymoon in Vegas. ]]>
