Charlie and Muriel Lang have led simple lives - for most of their existance. That's until they win $4 million on the lottery! There is a problem, however. Prior to winning the lottery, Charlie had eaten at a cafe and hadn't been able to tip the waitress. He had promised her, jokingly, that if he won the lottery he'd give her half of it. This is why his wife, Muriel decides to leave him. She doesn't want the waitress to get a cent of their money. Infact she wants all $4 million for herself! Written by

At Charlie and Muriel's divorce proceedings, Muriel has had a breast augmentation. They are Rosie Perez's real breasts. She had to have them bound down for the first half of the movie, to appear smaller. See more »
At the beginning of the movie, as part of establishing that Charlie is a good guy, he is shown scooping up a blind man who is obliviously crossing a busy street. In reality, blind people know very well how to cross a street relatively safely and would never cross against a light, especially with the sound of vehicles moving all around them. They are visually impaired, not hopelessly stupid. And a long-time police officer would know better than to pick up an able-bodied blind person as a means of guidance, which would be considered very offensive, if not assaultive. See more »

OK you can finally drop your ugly Hollywood 'baggage' right here.
If you haven't seen the film, just grab a Pepsi out of the 'fridge, pop up some Jolly Time with a little real butter (the kind that lets you hear your arteries harden you'll live), and take a good look at Andy Bergman and Jane Anderson's little masterpiece. You'll find the Nicolas Cage and Bridget Fonda you've always been looking for and never thought you'd see together. Way beyond that, but amazingly from the get-go and right in front of your very eyes you'll begin to discover a good part of your heart in the process. You know, that part that guys don't like to talk about and women always do? This cynical man certainly did
'Feel good' movie? you better believe it. But don't shy away or you'll miss being human. All the 'good stuff' you ever imagined yet knew ahead-of-time is in this little caper: great plot, great story line, great acting great film. And just the right amount of the right musical score. The trick is (and believe me, it's no trick at all) to put yourself in their shoes: as others have said, what would 'you' do with 2 million dollars that fell into your lap? You'll be thinking so hard you can miss the magic. Don't let that happen
Years ago, as my flight instructor used to say after GUMP (gear, undercarriage, mixture, prop) and right before landing, ' just fly the plane, Bob.'
Just watch the movie. Your own three-point landing will work itself out and, your arteries will soften
