 THE FAMILY MAN
Man, like Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” and Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life before it, shows a guy being visited by a ghost/angel who takes the character on a wild ride to show him the error of his ways.
Man then flashes forward 13 years, where the still-single Jack has a penthouse apartment in Manhattan, a Ferrari, a giant closet full of $2,400 suits and a powerful Wall Street job.
Man’s script, which was written by David Diamond (of the Ice-T/Alyssa Milano “thriller” Below Utopia fame) and David Weissman (Dream a Little Dream 2 — who knew they made a sequel?), is a hackneyed hack-job that leaves many side stories unresolved.

 TheMovieBoy Review: The Family Man (2000)
Sort of a modern-day rendition of 1946's holiday classic "It's a Wonderful Life," "The Family Man" is a fantasy in which a wealthy Wall Street dealer is given a chance to glimpse the wildly different way his life would have turned out had he married his college sweetheart.
While the message that "The Family Man" wanted to make was apparent from the first twenty minutes, the way the story was going to wrap up was more of a mystery.

This is why the Working Families Time to Care Act is an idea whose time has come.
Under the labor-backed proposal - as improved by Gov. Spitzer - people staying home to cope with family emergencies could collect disability benefits equal to half their pay, or up to $170 a week, for as many as 12 weeks.
Instead, Spitzer is essentially asking folks around the office to chip in for the woman who's about to have a baby, or the guy whose father just had a stroke.

 Amazon.fr : Family Man: Livres en anglais: Calvin Trillin   (Site not responding. Last check: )
And while Trillin conveys the joys and sorrows of family life with his customary drollness, what really gets him going is the high anxiety of being in loco parentis.
When, for example, a study reveals that most of our synapses are formed during infancy, the author is nonplused by the scientific breakthrough.
At the heart of his book, though, is the alternately exasperating and endearing pageant of family life, chez Trillin, which features not only the author's smart-aleck daughters but also his wife and perennial straight (wo)man, Alice.

 Family Man - Chap. 5
His face was unknown to most of the city, and it was relatively easy for him to move among the network of taverns, gambling dens, and docks that the two families were feuding over.
Behind the couple walked a cold-eyed man with at least a dozen knives belted across his chest, and a seven-foot-tall insectoid with spiked limbs and serrated mandibles.
He shoved the maimed man toward his sister and said, “Defend yourself for a moment while I make my point.” The other toughs sprang forward at Virot, but his sword kept the gang at bay, parrying a blow here and slashing a torso there.

 Nicholas feels Caged as a Family Man - Family Man - Epinions.com
The Family Man is a sweet film starring Nicholas Cage who, at the start of the film, is saying goodbye to his girlfriend Kate (Tia Leoni), who has grave misgivings about this trip to London he's going on.
The difficulty is, he's put in his life that might have been with all the same attitudes that he had before – and has the confusion of not actually expecting to have been given this chance to see how different his life could have been.
His welcome to the life of a family man – the sights, noises, and above all smells of parenthood – is not at all to his liking, and as things progress, he likes it even less.

 The Family Man - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Family Man is a 2000 Brett Ratner film starring Nicolas Cage and Téa Leoni, about a man who is given a glimpse at what could have been, if he had made a different decision 13 years ago.
It is similar to It's a Wonderful Life, in that it starts on Christmas Eve with a life and death situation involving an angel who tries to get the main character to take a long, earnest look at his life.
The film has also been compared to Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol due to the protagonist being a greedy man who cares little about anyone except himself and has his life completely changed after a series of real-life what-if experiences.

 The Family Man - Cranky Critic® Movie Reviews
In Ratner's The Family Man, star Nicolas Cage gets to experience the life that would have happened if he had put love ahead of career.
The Family Man is a perfectly average fuzzy flick, best appreciated if you've got a number of years of couple-hood under the belt.
This would be a just OK adult dateflick (the $5 level) except that the audience that will best appreciate this flick will do so snuggled in front of a teevee.

Turns out Cash is The Family Man's version of Wonderful Life's Clarence, who now gives Jack a glimpse into the life he might have led if he hadn't left his girlfriend, Kate Reynolds (Téa Leoni), thirteen years earlier for a year-long brokerage internship in London.
But when he offers to commute from Jersey so the family won't be displaced, Kate still won't hear of it--as if being a good family man and pursuing his other dreams are mutually exclusive goals.
The Family Man pays lip service to the sacrifices Kate has had to make for relationship and family, but we are left to guess what they are.
