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.Written by

I laughed, I cried...
The Family Man made me laugh so hard I cried. I went to see this movie yesterday with a couple of free passes that had to be used up before the end of the year. Happy New Year!
This is my favorite type of movie, the fish out of water movie. Nicolas Cage and Téa Leoni were really great together. I've always liked Téa Leoni. I remember her in Flying Blind. Too bad that show only lasted one season.
It struck me funny when Cage, as Jack Campbell, says, "This is not my house.", that there wasn't any Talking Heads soundtrack behind him. It worked for me in the TV commercial.
Makenzie Vega was exceptional as the little girl.
