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.
The nastiness in the movie feels derived from life, while all the niceness feels canned -- imported from old Jimmy Stewart pictures.
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.
...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.
Pleasant rags-to-bitches tale, with Fonda shining.
I'm not a Nicholas Cage fan. At all. But in this film he has his act together. He and Bridget Fonda have wonderful chemistry and together create this charming, lovely romance film. Yeah, it's a bit tacky and unrealistic at times, but it's just too pleasant and supremely watchable that it's very hard to dislike it.
Based on a true story. A cop gives half a lottery ticket to a waitress in lieu of a tip. He wins $4 million. They are thrown together and become romantically involved. Good cast.
So sweet. I really liked Fonda in her character here...
i was pissed when i realized it couldnt really happen to me
