5.0 out of 5 stars The Family Man, 20 Nov 2004
This review is from: The Family Man [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
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.
