Expert Review It Could Happen to You (1994) - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: Josh Lasser Reviews
Published on: 6/1/2009 8:08 AM
The film, which stars Nicolas Cage, Bridget Fonda, and Rosie Perez, is actually – according to the box – "inspired by a true story."

Plot Summary
When he digs into his pocket to get a tip for coffee shop waitress Yvonne Biasi, New York policeman Charlie Lang discovers that he's out of cash. So, as compensation, he promises that, if lady luck is on his side and a recently purchased lottery ticket wins, he'll give her half the money. Lo and behold, his ticket's that special one, and Lang splits the $4 million with Biasi -- to the chagrin of his materialistic wife.| But Charlie also discovers in the process that there's more to life than money... and that some of the best things in life are free.

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"...[Cage and Fonda] keep it sailing....[A] sweetly amusing movie..." 07/29/1994 p.C10

Entertainment Weekly
"...Engagingly preposterous....It is a pleasure to be persuaded to suspend disbelief..." -- Rating: B 01/27/1995 p.59

Los Angeles Times
"...Written and directed with an embracing cheer. It's blissfully uncynical..." 07/29/1994 p.F1

Chicago Sun-Times
"...The story is not so much about romance as about goodheartedness, which is a rarer quality, and not so selfish. And Cage has a certain gentleness that brings out nice soft smiles on Fonda's face..." 07/29/1994 p.37
