Rating: 3/4 -- If you're looking for a late summer, "feel good" romantic comedy, there aren't too many around more affable than this one. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- 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. Full Review

...Written and directed with an embracing cheer. It's blissfully uncynical...

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. Full Review

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

Rating: C+ -- 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." Full Review

Product Description:

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 Synopsis:

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.
