A solidly okay film

I ignored 'It Could Happen to You' for over 20 years due to lack of interest; I'm not really into most romantic comedies (and I've never been that big a fan of Nicolas Cage).

I finally watched the movie one night on Netflix, though, and it was... fine. Not spectacular, but not terrible. Cage's character comes across as a bit of a "Gary Stu" (or whatever you call male Mary Sues). An... read more

I have such weird memories of this movie… Indeed, when I was a teenager, I was really lonely back in those days and I was really dying to have a girlfriend. Somehow, it never happened for many many years and it was only when I was about 14 years old that I finally kissed a girl for the very first time. Anyway, at last, I finally kissed a girl, she was friend of my sister, 4 years older than me, ... read more

" 1994 seem to have been a great year for recreating the atmosphere of Frank Capra's films. First I have seen "The Hudsucker Proxy" from that year and now we have this one. A charming romantic comedy but also with hints of screwball humor from Rosie Perez and the fantastical and spiritual as Isaac Hayes plays an angel. Nicolas Cage do one of his better roles as a cop who decide to share his ticket with a very cute waitress - and who wouldn't when she looks like Bridget Fonda and his fiancee acts "

Negative Depictions of Real People (24 movies items)

"The officer's wife in reality, had no problem with splitting the money with the waitress and actually went down there to congratulate her with her husband. The affair also did not happen, and the two are still happily married. This is a stark contrast to the nasty, greedy and vindictive gold-digger she is in the film."
