||An original screenplay, with echoes of other Christmas parables.
||Jack Campbell, the VP of an investment company who cares nothing for anything except money and has arranged a meeting for Christmas day, is unexpectedly propelled into an alternative life when he wakes up top find himself married to a former girlfriend, with two children, a people carrier instead of a Ferrari and a job as a tyre salesman. He gradually comes to appreciate his new responsibilities and so is distressed when he is returned to his former life. What can he do?
||Time spent in the corporate offices, but more in the small detached house and the tyre shop of his new life. Generally inoffensive, resulting on only nine lines in the imdb “content advisory”. A blurred femal form is seen through the frosted glass of the show – all in the best possible taste.
||Nicholas Cage does bemused really well. Téa Leoni does attractive suburban wonderfully, so it is a perfectly fine way to pass a couple of hours.
