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.

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

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."

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

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

Berggman shows that good-hearted folks get better with money, and evil people get nastier. The message is predictable.

A grande atuação é de Rosie Perez, que faz uma vilã deliciosa. Chega a dar vontade de entrar no filme e dar uns bons cascudos na antipática Muriel.

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

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.

Simply and without pandering or insults to your intelligence, the movie delivers more of the old-style pleasures of moviegoing than any other picture in a long while.

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