Storyline

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.

Trivia

At the beginning of the movie, Jack sings "La donna è mobile" from the Giueseppe Verdi opera 'Rigoletto'. In the opera, the song is sung by a womanizing duke who describes women as flighty and untrustworthy, when in actuality the duke is the flighty and untrustworthy one. This is similar to how Jack is at the start of the film: a wealthy, irresponsible philanderer who is blind to his own flaws. See more »

Quotes

Kate: [Kate is sitting at a table working on her laptop and eating some chocolate cake when Jack arrives home] Hi honey. How was the game?
Jack: Long, boring, and generally pretty sad. Arnie seemed to enjoy it. Sorta.
[he opens up the refrigerator and looks inside]
Jack: Hey where's that chocolate cake?
Kate: [Kate looks at her plate and back at Jack] Do you mean this chocolate cake?
Jack: [Jack looks at her and shuts the fridge door. He starts walking to her] That's my piece. I was saving it because I got nauseated by that ...

It's A Wonderful Life in 2000
16 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

I found this movie to be a very nice remix of "It's a Wonderful Life", much like "You've got Mail" is a remix of "Pride and Prejudice" (and totally hints at this within the film). A classic film to make you reexamine your own life, and think about what is really important and meaningful for you, what is success and happiness? Young dreamers in love with their successful careers instead of each other, find out that maybe their love really was meant to be. This is what Nicholas Cage finds out, and when he wakes up from the dream of what 'could have been', he rushes to stop 'loosing her' again, and hopefully still live the happily ever after dream. Nicholas Cage provides a stunning and comical performance in character, from the aggressive businessman - big business and small business - to a loving father and husband with his charming sense of humor. Quite a romantic film to watch with that 'someone special' during the holidays.
