Product Description

High-powered Wall Street bachelor Jack Campbell (Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage) is living life in the fast lane until he gets the shock of a lifetime when he wakes up one morning in suburban New Jersey next to Kate (Tea Leoni), the girlfriend he left 13 years ago. Now, Jack's entire world is turned upside down. He's got two kids, he's traded in his Ferrari for a minivan while trying not to lose his mind. Can an upscale, downtown player survive in middle-of-the-road suburbia? And what does it take for a once single-minded exec to really become The Family Man in this hilarious comedy about second thoughts and second chances.

This movie borrows from It's a Wonderful Life and the book Replay, where a man can go back and see how his life would be if he made a different choice.
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.

This movie is highly underrated. Sure, the story has been done time and time again. This time around the performances steal the movie. The chemistry between the two leads should make this a holiday classic.

A modern-day Frank Capra story. Jack Campbell, a successful and talented businessman, is happily living his single life. He has everything, or so he thinks. One day he wakes up in a new life where he didn't leave his college girlfriend for a London trip. He's married to Kate, lives in Jersey and has two kids. He, of course, desperately wants his life back for which he has worked 13 years for. He's president of P. K. Lassiter Investment House and not a tire salesman at Big Ed's. He drives a Ferrari and not a mini-van that never starts. And most importantly he doesn't wake up in the morning with kids jumping on the bed. After a bad start, day by day he's more confident in his new life and starts to see what he's been missing. Turns out money's good to have but that's not everything.
- Jack Campbell: a 36 years old, 6'1'', Nicolas Cage.
- Kate Reynolds: a 34 years old, 5'8'', Téa Leoni.
- Annie Campbell: a 6 years old, Makenzie Vega, who is half-Colombian and half-Italian.
- Josh Campbell: Twin Brother Jake and Ryan Milkovich.

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who love dogs and those who don't.
That's the only way to make sense out of why there exists folks who do not absolutely love this movie. I have a Masters in Communications - Cinema (shameless plug, sorry), and this is said only for perspective on my forthcoming comments.
You see, you don't need another review describing the storyline or the incredible performances turned in my Mr. Cage (he was perfection) and his perfectly cast supporting players (Tea Leoni is stunning; Jeremy Piven is a hoot).
What is needed is a statement of why there exists in the world people who may not like this film. And it's for the same reasons they would not like "It's A Wonderful Life" and "A Christmas Story" and any other film that requires being VULNERABLE and HONEST to admit that deep down you are broken, hurting, and are truly NOT in control of your universe and you're (maybe) made at God about it.
The honest folks (who love dogs, by the way) simply "get it." The ones who have to survive by never getting in touch with deep emotion and pain inside will, tragically, never experience what is truly important and purposeful and genuine in life.
This is not an indictment of these folks. Just an observation.
Artistically and technically, this is one of the most flawlessly executed films I know of. It rates with director Martin Brest's 1988 "Midnight Run" in terms of the delicate balance of laughter and tears, outlandish scenario made believable, characters so lovable BECAUSE of their vulnerability in admitting they are messed up and need help ...

So the movie it's self is a 5 out of 5. The product itself though is utterly cheap. I thought the days of a dvd or in this case now a blu ray looking like a black disc on the top and bottom were long gone. But sadly nope. Nothing wrose then grabbing a bluray or dvd that has no cover sticker on the disc and you end up with a finger rpint on the disc and have to clean it before putting it in the blu ray player. I thought this was a blu ray/dvd combo meaning two discs. I love having dvd blu ray combo packs as a back up so if this bothers you do not get this cheaply made bluray movie. Family itself is a fantastic movie about what ifs. I love movies that make you question or reconsider what path you could have taken. I find then fun and very interesting. If thats your type of movie then get this but i would go with just a dvd until they decided to make a proper blu ray release.
Oh and the picture quality doesn't look any different on which ever side you play the movie on which begs to question is it really a blu ray if a dvd is combined on the same disc just different side.
