“Fairy Tales Can Come True”
This is one of my favorite scenes from the 1994 romantic comedy It Could Happen to You. In it, New York City cop Charlie Lang (played by Nicolas Cage) and waitress Yvonne Biasi (Bridget Fonda), along with Lang’s friend from the force, Bo Williams (Wendell Pierce), treat the children from Lang’s neighborhood in Queens to a memorable day spent playing baseball at Yankee Stadium. It’s clear by their interactions here that Charlie and Yvonne are developing a much closer relationship--something that Williams recognizes (and obviously approves of) at the end of the scene.
“Young at Heart” is sung in this clip by Frank Sinatra.
