Fresh: If you're looking for a heartfelt, feel-good holiday movie, just give in and enjoy.

Rotten: The makers of The Family Man were trying to do a kind of reverse It's a Wonderful Life without ever realizing that it doesn't work on paper, much less on the screen.

Fresh: I voted for the happy ending, thusly, my enjoyment was diminished.

i just gave this a second viewing, the first being 7 years ago when this came out, and either i forgot how good it was or my taste has changed because it was much better than i remember. this scrooge style story was touching and funny. it made me want to be a better father and husband. good stuff.
