About this movie

High-powered Wall Street bachelor Jack Campbell (Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage) is living life in the fast lane until he gets the shock of a lifetime when he wakes up one morning in suburban New Jersey next to Kate (Tea Leoni), the girlfriend he left 13 years ago. Now, Jack's entire world is turned upside down. He's got two kids, he's traded in his Ferrari for a minivan while trying not to lose his mind. Can an upscale, downtown player survive in middle-of-the-road suburbia? And what does it take for a once single-minded exec to really become The Family Man in this hilarious comedy about second thoughts and second chances.

The guy almost gives all his characters the same personality in all his movies, unfortunately. I liked the warped time travel alternate universe alien invasion body snatcher thing happening here. It's sad the writers felt it necessary to include the sort of unrestrained sexual urges of Tea Leoni: as if that's what drives a relationship. They got it right at the finish of the movie with the snowy background. Don Cheadle is cool. You want me to set it off, son!

Jack Campbell learns a valuable lesson in life. He thought he was happy with his choices, but he soon finds out what matters most in life, and it's not his car or job. A great movie that warms the heart with good comedy that doesn't overpower the object of the story. You'll enjoy it.

For the past several years, my wife and I have made watching this movie a New Year's tradition. The story line is simple, yet awesome. And since we have children, we definitely connect with it! But the best part for us is that we get an opportunity to consider our own lives during the past year, the choices we've made and the path we've taken in life.
