Rating: 2.5/4 -- A series of moments, sentimental and comic, that never do add up to a coherent fable.
Globe and Mail

A hunk of sentimental fluff that boasts an often-overstated performance by Cage and an annoying turn by Leoni.

Rating: 3/5 -- A pleasant change of pace for both Cage and director Ratner. Full Review

Leoni is a revelation. Vibrant and gorgeous, she plays her role of the determined mother in love with teasing, salty charm, providing just enough grit to save the film from Ratner's slushy direction. Full Review

Rating: C+ -- The outsize ticky tackiness of Jack's new life has been stitched together out of the broadest possible series of middle American clichés. Full Review

Product Description:

Nicolas Cage stars as Jack Campbell, a career-driven workaholic who has everything: an exciting job, a Ferarri, a closetful of Zegna suits, and the attention of any woman he wants. His life changes when, after working a full day on Christmas Eve, he intervenes in a convenience store holdup. The apparent criminal, Cash (Cheadle), speaks to Jack in epigrams about his satisfaction with life. When Jack wakes up the next day, he's suddenly living in a New Jersey suburb, where he's married to his college sweetheart (Leoni) and is the father of two children. At first he is aghast, but Jack soon warms to his new life even though he knows that it cannot last. Unabashedly sentimental, the film is also a great comedy, as Cage gives a superb performance that makes the most of his character's obvious disgust with his suburban surroundings and even allows for a few moments of hysterics reminiscent of VAMPIRE'S KISS. Filled with great performances (notably Ms. Leoni's role as Jack's wife), inspired comedy, and a premise that suggests a slightly darker version of classics like A CHRISTMAS CAROL and IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE, THE FAMILY MAN is an affecting and entertaining holiday film.

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: December 22, 2000.
  • Filmed on location in Teaneck, New Jersey and in New York City.
  • Nicolas Cage took on the part of Jack Campbell because he felt he needed a comedic role after a string of action films and dramas. The last comedic role he had played before THE FAMILY MAN was in 1994's TRAPPED IN PARADISE, which was also a holiday film.
