The Family Man


Investment broker Jack Campbell (Nicolas Cage) is magically transported from his lonely but wealthy life to that of a family man who lives a more financially strained life in the suburbs. What would have happened if you had made a different choice at a crucial point in your life? And what is most important in life? Brett Ratner’s sentimental but touching approach to those questions, a fantasy in the vein of Frank Capra, is not as predictable or mushy as you may think, although the film goes on a bit too long. There’s some depth to Cage’s character, and he’s excellent.

2000-U.S. 125 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by¬†Brett Ratner. Cast: Nicolas Cage (Jack Campbell), T√©a Leoni (Kate Reynolds), Jeremy Piven (Arnie), Don Cheadle, Saul Rubinek, Josef Sommer… Mary Beth Hurt.

Trivia: Curtis Hanson was allegedly involved in the project at some point.
