Rotten: In the end conventional sentiment, rather than any actual morality, is all that the script for The Family Man ... has to offer.
- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Friday, December 22, 2000
Fresh: Nicolas Cage gives a performance that invites audiences to lay cynicism aside.
- Bob Graham, San Francisco Chronicle, Friday, December 22, 2000
Fresh: Although the rhythms of the movie directed by Brett Ratner ... are familiar in terms of the story, Cage and Leoni make it offbeat.

Not as schmaltzy as I thought it would be. It?s the only film I find Tea Leoni really attractive in.

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.
