This story was inspired by an actual event and makes you believe that there are still nice people in the world. One day a policeman (Charlie Lang, played by Nicholas Cage) must leave a restaurant in a hurry, and rather than leave without a tip he promises half the winnings of a lottery ticket to his waitress (Yvonne Biasi, played by Bridget Fonda), if the ticket should win. The ticket wins, big time, and the conflict and stress begin.
To contrast with the sweetness, though with a bit of cynical edge, of Charlie and Yvonne, is Charlie's wife Muriel, obnoxiously and effectively played by Rosie Perez. Muriel is out for Muriel, and wants to get what she sees as hers, regardless of whatever promise Charlie may have made to Yvonne.
We see Charlie conflicted as to what to do at first. After all, Charlie certainly did not expect to win several million dollars on that lottery ticket. However, Charlie wants to do the right thing, and he does. As Charlie follows his heart, and what he believes is right, Charlie comes to realize that Yvonne has morals and a style more like his own, and Muriel is greedy and conniving and just not a very nice person. While I was initially conflicted by Charlie's marriage to Muriel, because I believe strongly in marriage, there came a point where I just couldn't stand Muriel any more, and no belief in marriage would have made me stay with her.
This story is a bit of a caricature and more than a bit trite, but somehow I wanted this variation on the Cinderella theme to work out and I had to follow it to the end. I wanted the movie to work out because Yvonne was just a wonderfully nice person and she deserved a better life, and I decided that no matter what Muriel and Charlie were not going to work out.

This movie, based on a true story, is for anyone desperately hoping that good things do happen to good people. Yvonne is a struggling waitress who has filed for bankruptcy, as her estranged husband (she doesn't have enough money to divorce him) ran up $12,000 on her credit cards. She came to New York 5 years ago to be an actress, and it just never happened. Meantime, Charlie is a good-hearted cop, very blue collar, living in Queens and liking it. He is married to Muriel, his high-school sweetheart, and she doesn't like it -- she wants more more more!! And WHEN is Charlie going to give it to her, that's what she wants to know!
One day, Charlie is at Yvonne's coffeeshop and doesn't have enough money to pay the bill and leave a tip. He offers to come back the next day and give her half his lottery winnings (he just purchased a ticket) or double a tip. Turns out he wins ... and that is where the real story begins.
Money is not the root of all evil, it's the LOVE of all money that is. How much this money meant to Charlie, Yvonne, Muriel and the various people who start coming out of the woodwork all becomes apparent. Furthermore, money is not an end but the means to an end -- how does each individual choose to use their part of the pie? It's interesting .....
This is billed as a romance but that is really the secondary plotline that develops very slowly. It could happen to you -- and the situations presented make you examine what you would do if you won $4 million.

I am glad that this movie is available on DVD because it's a great "feel good" movie! Nicolas Cage plays a mild mannered cop who, one day, can't leave a tip for a cup of coffee, so he offers his waitress (Bridget Fonda) his lottery ticket. It's funny to see the chain of events that happen throughout the movie. It's a romantic comedy that will keep you watching right to the end!

Well like any gal I love a good romantic movie so I rented It Could Happen To You expecting to love it but instead hated it.
It was the pits! The characters were all annoying and not likeable at all!
Sorry but I can't recommend it and I won't be adding it to my DVD or video collection!
Nicholas Cage and Bridget Fonda's talents were wasted in this thing!
The music in the movie is great though and I highly recommend the movie's soundtrack which I have in my CD collection!

There are romantic comedies that you remember even years later for their wit, grace, and matchless chemistry of the leads. IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT comes to mind. Then there are those that are of a lesser order that you may remember vaguely a plot but not much else. IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU is of this latter type. This is not to say that director Andrew Bergman did not manage to convey several heart-warming complexities that inevitably result when unexpected riches collide with everyday life.
Nicholas Cage plays police officer Charley Lang, who does not have enough money for a tip for waitress Yvonne (Bridget Fonda), but he does, however, have a Lotto ticket that he promises to split with her should he win. Naturally, he does win, and it is his winning of four million dollars that changes the tone from that of light comedy to the more bitter world of sleaze and greed. Charley's wife, Muriel (Rosie Perez) epitomizes the grasping, totally self-absorbed woman whose true feelings for Charley are dwarfed by her need to have it all. There are some unnerving scenes of greed versus honesty played out in court that seem to validate the widespread belief that whenever huge sums of money are at stake, the participants had better get the details in writing. There are two areas of the film that do not ring true. The first is the unlikely pairing of the heartless Muriel with the heartfelt Charley. Muriel comes off as a female Murdstone from Dickens' DAVID COPPERFIELD. Her antagonism towards Charley is unfathomable. Neither is her lack of acumen at hooking up with a man, following her divorce, who is even more of a golddigger than she is.
