It Could Happen to You ★★½ Cop Tips Waitress $2 Million 1994 (PG)

NYC cop Charlie Lang (Cage) doesn't have any change to leave coffee shop waitress Yvonne (Fonda) a tip, so he promises to split his lottery ticket with her. When he nets $4 million, he makes good on the promise, much to the chargrin of his upwardly mobile wife (Perez). Capracorn for the Xcrowd is pleasant dinnertime diversion as Cage and Perez shine as henpecked nice guy and the wife committed to making him miserable. Don't look for the diner on your next trip to NYC; it was specially built in TriBeCa and dismantled after the shoot. 101m/C VHS, DVD .
