Storyline

Gladys Glover has just lost her modelling job when she meets filmmaker Pete Sheppard shooting a documentary in Central Park. For Pete it's love at first sight, but Gladys has her mind on other things -- like making a name for herself. Through a fluke of advertising she winds up with her name plastered over 10 billboards throughout city. Suddenly all of New York is clamoring for Gladys Glover without knowing why and playboy Evan Adams III is making a play for Gladys that even Pete knows will be hard to beat. Written by A.L.Beneteau <albl@inforamp.net>

A lovely comedy
27 November 2006 | by (Colombia) – See all my reviews

Sometimes i heard the name of Judy Holliday. But i had never seen her work. Suddenly, a lovely comedy appeared.

"It should happen to you" tell us about the real dreams, and the false dreams. Gladys Glover, is a name difficult to forget. Our charming character wants to be somebody, and she try to make reality that dream. But she makes it in the mistaken way. Because, maybe is more important the real love of a man than a fake illusion. The illusion of be famous.

Since the naked feet in the park, "It should happen to you" is a great comedy. A comedy about the love, the dreams and ... of course ... big billboards with names.

Recommended for any occasion. Especially, if you want to see a real comedy.

*sorry, if there any mistake there
