Jack Campbell (Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage) is a single, wealthy Wall Street trader living the high life in New York City. All that magically changes one winter morning when he wakes up in suburban New Jersey next to Kate (Téa Leoni), the girlfriend he left 13 years ago. He's now got two kids, he's traded in his Ferrari for a minivan, and he's trying not to lose his mind. Find out what it takes for a single-minded businessman to become The Family Man in this heartwarming holiday comedy about second thoughts and second chances.

It's fairly old. The story is potentially good, although it wasn't as lovey-dovey as I was expecting.
I have given it a mid-score - not great, not bad. That pretty much sums it up!
Cannot fault this movie!!!
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.
The film has a lot of sentimentality especially between Jack and his children which increasingly becomes more touching and tragic towards the end when his glimpse of what could have been draws to a finish. Indeed whether you like your films butch or not you will not help but sympathise with the messages and excellent interaction between each of the characters Jack meets, all of them who love him in different ways. By the time the final credits role you suddenly see the fast cars and high paid jobs as less important than the relationships we have.
A blend of fact and fiction, it had some strong performances particularly Christopher Plummer as Scrooge.
I guess we always think about possible different outcomes in our lives, but the amazing thing to know, and which is outlined in this movie, is that regardless of the choices we've made there's still another opportunity and it is all up to us to live the way we really want to.
You may find out that your current shallow way to see life is just a consequence of living a life you didn't choose. Perhaps you are happy with material things but you might unconsciously be missing something else, something you don't have and which might even be more important to you.
You gotta watch this movie indeed!
By trying to "save" someone else from a misdeed, he ironically gets the chance to be saved himself.
This is a flim to watch on a rainy sunday afternoon. Definately a chick flick, It wont disapoint!
THIS ONE ISN'T.!! It explores a theme which has touched every one of us -what if we'd taken a different decision at a point in our life
and WHAT WOULD THE OUTCOME HAVE BEEN ??
Superbly acted by th intriguing MrCage and the gorgeous Tea Leoni (the thinking man's Danish pastry !!).
Only one thing to say ---BUY IT ........NOW !!!!before stocks run out .
