Cage and Leoni make it offbeat.

A surprisingly charming fable.

Chicago Sun-Times
Sweet, light entertainment, but could have been more.

Charlotte Observer
A holiday fable that's not destined for immortality but goes down more easily than most of the pap Hollywood tries to feed us every Christmas.

USA Today
Despite solid acting, it's a fantasy for those who don't know jack about what really makes for a wonderful life.

Chicago Tribune
I didn't believe it, and I don't think the people who made The Family Man did either.

Los Angeles Times
Not even a sincere and heroic effort by Nicolas Cage can redeem the film's essential phoniness.

Boston Globe
Sitting through it is like waking up on Christmas morning to find a stockingful of styrofoam.

A piece of moldy wax fruit if ever there was one.
20
Nothing more, or less, than a cheap, dirty grab at our Christmas spirit.
