Its emotional core makes it easy to appreciate as a classical (if not classic) entertainment.

Pleasant movie despite some predictability.

Leoni is a revelation. Vibrant and gorgeous, she plays her role of the determined mother in love with teasing, salty charm, providing just enough grit to save the film from Ratner's slushy direction.

I voted for the happy ending, thusly, my enjoyment was diminished.

One of the few films this season able to offer something likely to entertain almost everyone.

If you're looking for a heartfelt, feel-good holiday movie, just give in and enjoy.

Redeems itself with raw emotion and the evocative force of love.

Cage's delivery of the Big Final Speech is strained and uncomfortable, and the film's ending is unsatisfying, offering a conflicted message and only a meager chance of hope.

Perfect feel-good Christmas-period family entertainment. Highly recommended.

Okay, so this is kinda corny but hey, it's a Christmas movie, what do you expect? Plus, it's so well done that it doesn't matter that it's formulaic and not very deep.

Even as the writers spin their entertaining suburban legend, there's a lingering feeling perhaps even they don't really stand behind the statement they're trying to make.

Demonios!, Y yo que estaba tan bien en mi soltera!

O programa ideal para a poca do Natal.

Thoroughly engaging yet nothing new.

The predictability factor didn't spoil our good time. It might yours...but then, again, it might not.

Warm and soothing, "The Family Man" is not a perfect film, but it's a perfect film for the holiday season.

Try not to throw up as Hollywood preaches about the evils of money.

A pleasant change of pace for both Cage and director Ratner.

For all its obviousness, there is a sweetness in this movie that really got to me.
