3.0 out of 5 stars Light and airy and sweet
Mix these movies up together, "It's a wonderful life", "Scrooged", and "Mr. Destiny" and you have a perfect recipe for "The Family Man".
It's a wonderful life: Nicholas Cage plays the male romantic lead who has a life affirming moment that has him go back in time and see how life could have been different. Well, in this story he does exist unlike George,...

4.0 out of 5 stars A Really Engrossing Film,
In this movie, Nicholas Cage says goodbye to his girlfriend (Kate) at the airport. He is going to London for a job. We next see him years later as a successful head of a large corporation, unmarried and basically involved in one-night stands. We are later to find out that when Cage went to London, he forgot about Kate and she went her own way, never to be heard from again.
Cage is on the way home from the office during a snow-storm and thwarts a robbery. The audience expects the robber to shoot cage but instead Cage seems to convince the robber that he would be a better man if he didn't shoot Cage. It turns out that the robber is not really a robber but a type of Angel (similar to Clarence in It's a Wonderful Life) who will give Cage a glimpse of what life would be like if he hadn't stayed in London but instead came back and married Kate.
Cage goes to sleep in his luxury apartment and wakes up the next morning in a bed with an older Kate. Cage slowly learns that he is really a married man with a family and instead of a big time corporate president, he is a tire salesman in his father-in-law's store.
There are several hilarious scenes and some very touching ones. His "new" life looks like a nightmare at first turns out to be the life he will eventually prefer (Some of this is reminiscent of Goldie Hawn in Overboard). Only until he realizes this, he will not be returned to his prior life by the Angel.
The director does a great job in giving us an ending that is different than what you seem to expect. I won't say what but I think it was well done.
One thing that is not explored is that when Cage's glimpsed life finishes, he will lose his two children from that glimpsed life. The director never touches on Cage's feelings about that, unlike the novel Replay where the main character is torn apart because a child he had in an alternate life no longer exists when he is in a different reality.
The movie is well cast and Don Cheadle is excellent as the "angel."

5.0 out of 5 stars A good parallel universe story--"What could've been",
This review is from: The Family Man (VHS Tape)
Campbell is transported back to a life he might have had, if only he'd married his true love instead of going to London and getting into banking; a family man who has a lovable family, sells tires retail, changes diapers, and has to count pennies.
How it turns out is for you to discover. I'll not ruin it for you. Tea Leoni is wonderful as his wife. This is great entertainment if you are tired of the shoot-'em-ups and the car chases, and just want some heart-warming entertainment for a change of pace. A great story.
