|Review Summary and Plot Commentary about Family Man|
|Well, it's dud!!! A play on "It's a Wonderful Life" but a bad, bad take on it. Boring, predictable, formulaic. And I LOVE Nic Cage. Only Don Cheadle, the angel, had some surprises I can't even remember the name of the actress that played the wife. She was boring. The character was slow-witted and without any questions. Her only lively scenes were when she was being sexual... dumb woman. Even for a lawyer!
The beginning was much more enjoyable, before the transformation by the angel. The end was smarmy. The middle, a bore...a predictable, formulaic bore...
too bad... love that nic cage!
