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

Yvonne tells Officer Lang in the diner that her luck is so bad that she had a puppy die of"parvo," but she doesn't even know what that is. Parvo is a virus that afflicts puppies, and is marked by severe intestinal and heart problems. It is readily preventable by making sure puppies get all their vaccines, although Yvonne probably lacked the money to pay for them. See more »
When Yvonne files for bankruptcy in the beginning, she files in New York Civil Court. People file for bankruptcy in United States Bankruptcy Court which is a federal court. Civil Court where she filed is a state court. Bankruptcy is governed by federal laws, and therefore bankruptcy cases would be heard in federal as opposed to state court. See more »
I told you I'd share my ticket. I never planned on sharing my heart. Maybe I could get lucky twice today.

The nearest any film's ever come to breaking me...
...as a cynic.
I, through whatever reason, am absurdly cynical. A cynic, lest we forget, is somebody who puts very little faith in the good nature of humanity. Somebody who considers all good deeds to be selfishly motivated.
Somebody who should absolutely hate this film.
But I can't. I love this to pieces. No film has ever done as much to give me some faith in people. If Charlie can do the decent thing and split his ticket with Yvonne to fulfil a promise, despite the demands of a furious Muriel; if despite reaching a financial and emotional low they can still invite Angel in to put some food in his belly; and if the New York public can show their appreciation by doing whatever little they can to help out; then maybe, just maybe, there might be hope for the rest of us.
This. Is. Beautiful.
