The Family Man

The film centers on a man, who sees what could have been had he made a different decision thirteen years ago. It is similar to It’s a Wonderful Life in that it begins on Christmas Eve with a life-and-death situation, involving an angel, who tries to convince the main character into taking an earnest look at his life. Moreover, in the end, the protagonists in both movies conclude that living a quiet family life is preferable to achieving success and wealth at work.
