Guarding Tess / It Could Happen To You (Double Feature)
What do you do with a former First Lady who's unpredictable, ornery and impossible to please? Anything she wants!
Shirley MacLaine (Academy Award winner, Best Actress, Terms of Endearment, 1983) and Nicolas Cage (Academy Award winner, Best Actor, Leaving Las Vegas, 1995) star in this comic, compassionate look at life after the White House for two former Washington insiders: First Lady Tess Carlisle and Secret Agent Doug Chesnic.
As uproarious as it is uplifting, Guarding Tess is "a grand mixture of laughter and tears" (Gary Franklin, KCOP-TV).
It Could Happen To You
Nicolas Cage, Bridget Fonda and Rosie Perez star in this irrepressible romantic comedy inspired by the true story of a humble cop who leaves a $2 million tip to a hard-luck waitress.
Charlie Lang (Cage) is a neighborhood cop with a heart of gold - and a money-hungry wife Muriel (Perez) who's always looking for a way to cash in. When she asks Charlie to buy a lottery ticket, he agrees, then impulsively promises half the winnings to a waitress, Yvonne (Fonda). When their numbers hit, the real fun begins, as Muriel learns to live large while Charlie and Yvonne learn to love again. A captivating comedy laced with whirlwind romance.
