      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The Family Man's earnest attempt to remind audiences that it's a wonderful life too often steers into schmaltz, although Nicolas Cage and Téa Leoni's romantic rapport adds a dash of sincere sweetness.

      Nell Minow Common Sense Media Pleasant movie despite some predictability. Rated: 4/5 Dec 28, 2010 Full Review Time Out It's rare that an American movie lets slip such a snobbish distaste for the humdrum lives of its blue-collar audience base, but of course it doesn't last. Jan 26, 2006 Full Review Marrit Ingman Austin Chronicle A holiday film Joe Lieberman could love, unembarrassed by its wholesome, sugary pro-family message. Rated: 2/5 Mar 10, 2003 Full Review Michael Clark Epoch Times The Family Man proves it is indeed entirely possible to make a crowd-pleasing, highly commercial romantic movie with teeth which respects the audiences intelligence and doesn't spoon-feed them the same old predictable, recycled mish-mash. Rated: 4/5 Mar 10, 2022 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Crowd-pleasing sap. Rated: C Dec 20, 2020 Full Review Michael Nordine Not Coming to a Theater Near You Its emotional core makes it easy to appreciate as a classical (if not classic) entertainment.

      Geoff L Good movie. Feel good Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/03/24 Full Review Avalon T Love this movie. One of the best Christmas movies. Tia Leoni is excellent. Great chemistry with her and Nicolas Cage. Can't fail with Don Cheadle and Jeramy Piven either. Good natural script and great acting. Such a feel good movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/05/24 Full Review MOREEN L This is one of my top favorite films. Story, performances, heart, comedy, cinematography and directing, soundtrack… I love love love it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/31/23 Full Review Crystal L My husband and I have been watching this movie every Christmas for the past 17 years and it just gets better every year. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/27/23 Full Review Albert S My favorite Christmas movie!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/26/23 Full Review Aviad D I've watched this a few times and I think it's great. The writing is great, the acting is really good and the problems that the characters go through are dealt with well. This is one of the best X-mas movies, but it's a secret. Not many people know about it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
