An enjoyable easygoing movie to watch for sure.

Sep 20, 2018

This romantic/drama stars Nicolas Cage, Tea Leoni, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Piven, and many more. Jack is a lavish career man with a fulfilling life, until he disarms a gun man at the grocery store over the holidays and wakes up the next morning in bed next to his college sweetheart. He must now decide if he wants to keep the girl he left behind, or move on with his career. This movie is without a doubt very cheesy and has some questionable performances which make me wonder if Nicolas Cage will just take any job he’s offered. However, the movie had some very sweet moments with some attempts at a meaningful message. I would rate this film 3/5 stars. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

If you enjoy Tea Leoni in the TV series Madam Secretary, give this movie a try. She costars with Nicolas Cage in a modern take on "It's a Wonderful Life." An encounter with an angel transforms Cage's pampered, investment-banker existence to a middle-class tire salesman's lot, complete with wife (Leoni), two kids, and a crummy minivan. Set during the winter holidays, this is a perfect movie for couples to enjoy over the end-of-year break, but really, it's fun to watch any time of year.

A movie for mature audience due to sexual scenes. It is a movie that I have enjoyed watching multiple times because it underlines the importance of faithfulness and that you should not throw away a life-commitment based on momentary feelings. Love it!
