Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Romantic Comedy - The Family Man is a feel-good comedy/drama about a man learning about what really matters in life. Older viewers will probably be more charmed by its low-key style and uplifting messages; fans of Nicolas Cage may also enjoy him in a comic role. Younger viewers may find the film too sentimental.

Critic's Review Heading
Average
Feel-good should have been a welcome change in a year of feel-dumb or feel-dirty, but The Family Man never feels like the blessed change of pace it should have been. Ultimately, this is a film that is far more interested in cashing in on your good will than it is making the film worth your time. The Family Man asks a question with a ridiculously obvious answer -- "Isn't it wonderful when a self-absorbed corporate shark learns the wholesome importance of home and hearth?" -- and lets it lie there as though it were a complete story. It's a contraption of mechanized pleasantness.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Jack Campbell (Nicholas Cage), a Wall Street playboy at the top of his professional game...with little time for anything else. Jack's lavish, fast-paced lifestyle drastically changes one snowy Christmas night when he unwittingly stumbles into the middle of a grocery store holdup and in a bold display of self-preservation disarms the gunman. The next morning he wakes up in a suburban New Jersey bedroom lying next to Kate (Tea Leoni), his college sweetheart who he left in order to pursue his career, and to the horrifying discovery that his former life no longer exists. As he stumbles through this alternate suburban universe, Jack begins to feel strangely comfortable in this new role of loving husband and father to two children. Jack finds himself at a crossroad, where he must choose between his high-powered career and the woman he loves.
