Rating: 3.5/4 -- 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. Full Review

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.
