Christmas movie 3: The Family Man

The Family Man is another one of my faves. It's all about a glimpse of what life could have been like (much like It's a Wonderful Life). Nicholas Cage plays Jack Campbell, a wealthy businessman who is given the chance to see how different life would have been if he had married his college sweetheart (played by Téa Leone). He goes from being a hot NYC bachelor with a Ferrari and HUGE walk-in closet to becoming a father of two who lives in New Jersey and works as a tire salesman for his father-in-law. At first he absolutely hates the change and can't believe how much he sacrificed ("I could have been a thousand times the man..."). But in the end he realizes how much he's missed out on, and does become "the family man." It's a very sweet story with lots of jokes. It's also very quotable, which I love; I can anticipate every other line during the entire film! Definitely a fun family movie!
