But, at the airport, his fiance, Kate Reynolds (Tea Leoni) has second thoughts and asks him not to go. He thinks about it, but, goes anyway.
Thirteen years later, Jack is a high powered, single, investment banker in NYC on the verge of making a multi-million dollar deal that will change the complexion of his company, and personal fortune.
Meeting an angel (of sorts), Cash (Don Cheadle), Jack dreams of a life that could have been had he stayed with Kate: Two kids, a house in New Jersey….he is a tire salesman, she is a non-profit lawyer. Money is tight, and life is mundane…..but……
“The Family Man” is similar in some ways to “It’s a Wonderful Life” but with a modern day twist (or two). Cage and Leoni are great together and the ending is interesting. I often wondered what my life would have been like had I chosen one path over another at one of my life’s critical junctures.
