    A funny, modern variation from the classic "Its a Wonderful Life".

    Escapism does exist within this story. Something most all of us can relate to...the "what ifs" we ask ourselves during the course of our lives. What if I had done this or that, or what if I had pursued that relationship with a certain person who crossed the path of our life? What would my life look like now? Better? Worse? Did I do the right thing? Marry the right person? You can still dream through this movie and laugh at the same time. Of course in the end, you still don't know what the real outcome was. Keeps you wondering & using your imagination. It's a "feel good" movie.

    more from this reviewer

    Tiger Woods should have seen this years ago!

    Nothing corny about this movie! This must become a classic so it can influence the current generation and many to come. What a heartwarming 'glimpse' into a definition of success that embodies 'true values'. This movie is so well put together and delivers such a profound message. I hope it gets playing time in every home.

    Thought Provoking Movie - Exceptional

    We all have choices in life - some we make consciously, some sub-consciously. This movie does make you ' think ' about all of our ' choices ' we make and the ones we don't make. Life is short, if you don't like it - make a different choice. It's never too late - until you decide it's too late... then life is over, and you are just along for the ride. Great film - one of the best.

    The (Great) Family Man

    ¿The Family Man¿ is one of my all-time favorite holiday (or other) films. Younger people (I was 45 when this film was new) and the critics generally missed the point of this film and didn¿t enjoy it as much as older beings like myself. This is the greatest movie ever for a night of mellow nostalgia and for playing that gentle mental game of ¿what might have been¿¿ I think that is one reason why this had to be a Holiday film, because the best time for that kind of mild introspection is the Christmas season. The greatest strength of this movie is the amazing performance put in by Nicholas Cage who is clearly a genius, even when you otherwise don¿t enjoy the movie he¿s in. Scenic special bonus: Téa Leoni who puts in a boffo performance as Cage¿s lost love.

    Fantastic

    This was a fantastic movie. It has to be the best movie I have ever seen. This movie shows what life would be like if you took another path.I would recommend it to any one. It makes you think, and I like those kinds of movies.

    Love it !

    A feel good film with likeable real characters you can identify with, and one or two of those brilliant tearful moments when you connect with the sadness of your own decisions in life, and what might have been. Love it !

    This so far, is my favorite movie..

    This movie really hit home for me. It paints such a realistic picture of the life that might have been had he chosen the thing that really matters-love. For all those who need a wake-up call into making maybe the most important decision in their lives, this movie tells it all.
