Editors Note
Note When a New York police officer offers half of a lottery ticket as a tip for a waitress in a diner, the gratuity ends up being worth over $2 million in this wacky romantic comedy.
Plot Summary
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.

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
