The Family Man | 2000 | PG-13 | - 4.3.5

On Christmas Eve, a wealthy and single workaholic (Nicolas Cage) is transported into an alternate life: the middle-class existence he would have if he'd married his college girlfriend (Téa Leoni). Also with Jeremy Piven, Don Cheadle, Troy Hall, Harve Presnell, Saul Rubinek, Josef Sommer, Peter Lassiter, Paul Sorvino, Lisa Thornhill and Francine York. [2:02]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A woman begins undressing, then she and a man begin kissing as she talks about having sex since the children are asleep (her tank top and her dress, in a later scene, show cleavage). A few more kissing scenes with talk about having sex (in one of the scenes the woman grabs the man's clothed behind). A couple of kisses a number of times as the man leaves for his plane. We see a woman's bare back and her underpants as she pulls her dress up; she's talking to a man in bed about how good their lovemaking just was. A woman opens her coat to reveal her slip underneath as she talks about the couple making love. We see a man in his briefs a few times, a woman wearing a cleavage-revealing dress, a baby's genitals as he urinates without his diaper on, and a woman showering (her bare buttocks and breasts are briefly although vaguely visible through the opaque shower door).

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man threatens two people with a gun, two men briefly shove each other, and a man drives recklessly and nearly hits a bus (this scares his passenger).

LANGUAGE 5 - One F-word, a couple of anatomical references, a few scatological references, and some mild obscenities.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
