Jack Campbell (Nicolas Cage) is a quintessential Wall Street shark, scoring killer deals by day and shallow escort sex by night in The Family Man. Carp all you want about this derivative premise, with its marginal stereotypes and biased embrace of domestic bliss and dirty nappies. The simple fact is, The Family Man works like a charm. Under the assured direction of Brett Ratner (Rush Hour), this holiday crowd-pleaser offers comedy and chemistry in equal measure, making the hilarity of Jack's predicament a smooth catalyst for that rarest of film romances: the marital love story. Leoni is Cage's perfect match as Jack's idealised but imperfect wife and the films's appeal largely derives from its awareness that any life has its pleasures and pains. While it only flirts with the dark desperation that makes It's a Wonderful Life a classic predecessor, The Family Man is an irresistible what-if fantasy and even its debatable ending rides on a wave of genuine warmth and sentiment. --Jeff Shannon,

5.0 out of 5 stars The Family Man 20 Nov 2004
A story of what is most important in life.
It's an old cliche, but money doesn't make you happy and Nicholas Cage is the man with more money than you could imagine. He thinks he is happy in his every day life until he is given a glimpse of what his life could have been like. Cage is left thinking about a choice he made thirteen years earlier to pursue a life in business over a life with the woman he loved.
Cage is projected into a parallel life on Christmas day - a life where he chose family over fortune. In a world where careers come first, this film tears down the ideals surrounding modern materialism to show that the commitment most people should make in life is to each other.
Cage is brilliant as he first rebells and then welcomes his new life with his all adoring wife and somewhat sceptical daughter and son. What he doesn't expect is to realise that the family man is what he wants to be. What he doesn't want to accept is that this new life will be taken away from him.
The Family Man will engage every viewer from start to finish in an emotional roller coaster ride that does not fail to pull on the heart strings at every turn.
This film has massive feel good factor. Every couple should own it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A magical love story for everyone 4 Jan 2002
This is a truly wonderful film that contains love, humour, suspense, and even a hint of tragedy and despair.
Nic Cage plays an upper class, fast-moving, hard-talking, rich business man whose life is turned on it's head in the most unlikely way. Having lived his life believing he has everything a man could want he is offerred a glimpse into an alternate reality that he is forced to live out. A reality of a family, with a wonderful loving wife, 2 gorgeous children, and friends of the highest order - all the things he's never had. The plot then unravels as Cage slowly adapts to his new life without really wanting to. As the ending nears he realises something that he was neglecting his whole life.
Both Cage and Leoni put in superb performances that draw you into their cosy life and the tribulations as Cage realises what's happening to him. It even throws in a few laughs too.
Instantly one of my favourites, treat yourself!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite Simply Excellent 9 Jun 2006
Perhaps not one of Nicholas Cage's most notable films, certainly not in his normal action genre, but worth having as a lovely feel-good film.

The classic money vs love struggle, Cages character goes back in time through a 'glimpse' to see what would happen if he chose love over money 13 years previously. At first he cannot stand his own life, however grows to love this new life, and people in it.

When he gets back into the real world, surrounded by his money, he realises the gaps in his life.

An excellent film from start to finish with an excellent cast. As said previously in the reviews, every couple should own this film. I loved it when I saw it in the cinema, a real classic in my opinion.

So grab your date, stick this on and let the magic happen!

1.0 out of 5 stars Subtitles 4 Sep 2011
By Eleanor
Sadly unable to watch as I am deaf so need SUBTITLES.
DVD's should carry subtitles for the deaf person to read whilst watching a film.

5.0 out of 5 stars IMPOSSIBLE TO DISLIKE 18 April 2003
If you've ever wondered what your life would have been like if you had made certain decisions in your life and wished you could have seen if your life would have turned out better or worse then being Jack Campbell (Nicholas Cage) would seem like a dream come true. Except such a decision is more difficult when you seem to have it all and as for Jack he has a well paid job as a Wall Street Investment Banker, he has a fast car, a luxurious appartment in which he can entertain plenty of beautiful women. Jack feels his life is complete until one day he intervenes in a robbery at a local store and by explaining that his life is better than the thiefs he awakens to find himself in the arms of his ex girlfriend (Tea Leoni) from 13 years ago, a confused Jack is then confronted by his two children and pet dog. It's from that moment that Jack looks into the life he missed and after trying to retain the life he left he finds out that the wealthiest man is the man who has a family.
Cage is on top form as he tries to convince the strangers around him that he is the real Jack. It sets up comedic moments as well as moments of complete desperation on the part of Cage as he tries to gain back his old life while sticking with the family forced upon him. Leoni is the perfect wife who unlike Jack is a non profit lawyer. With that the messages in the film are many, whether it's the age old debate of you're not really happy when your wealthy or alone, to the contrasts between the big money hungry city and suburbia where everyone knows your name and respects you despite your status in life. For me the film is mostly about the decisions we make and how they mould who we become and what life we lead, whether it will be a good or bad choice you will never know if it was the best one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 22 Nov 2003
By Dan L
I have always liked watching Nicholas Cage, he always seemed to have a great presence. This film is again another great film in Cage's career.
Simply story about what ifs.. Told great. Tea Leoni wow she is attractive and great as the wife. The little girl is great. Usually children in films don't always work she does very well.
Yes it is light hearted but done so beautifully.
I have watched this film alot of times! Not dark in any way is a shame but the fact that in the end all that really matters is the family is happy together.
A very nice 90 odd minutes film. Plus a like the fact that the little girl thinks he is an alien of his dad but she helps him along the way! Brilliant. What more could i say.
