A Family Man has some worthy ideas, but they're bungled in a middle-of-the-road melodrama populated by thinly sketched -- and occasionally downright unlikeable -- characters.

Suffers from sentimental overload and a tidal wave of conscience-searching clichés.
Not great, not terrible, mostly bearable, occasionally insufferable; you might watch it all the way through if you were tucked into a blanket on a couch and weren't so thirsty, hungry or in need of a bathroom break that you felt compelled to get up.
Alternately crass and treacly, overbearing and under-finessed, the film ... is on life support from get-go.
A loathsome redemption tale that rings false on every front.
The whole thing reeks of a vanity project for Butler (who also produced), affording him the chance to showboat as a Gordon Gekko type trying to redeem himself.
Never rises above polished plastic, formulaic, and pedestrian.
A Family Man isn't good, but it's far better than its lazy foundations and cheap motivations deserve.
A Family Man is enjoyable at times but falls into the preconceived pitfalls that so many similar films have.
The boy's suffering certainly serves the classic disabled-person-as-inspiration function for his father, whilst the boy himself gains nothing except, perhaps, a soupçon more attention.
Some truths about corporate greed and absentee parenting are buried deep within this superficial redemption melodrama that's more predictable than provocative.
[A]t a certain point, we simply start to believe that Dane is a bad guy through and through.
Warmed-over 'Glengarry Glen Ross' mixed with afternoon soap opera...watching the mawkish movie might make you gag on its mixture of bluster and treacle.
