The Family Man (2000) is a drama directed by Brett Ratner about Jack Campbell (Nicolas Cage), a very successful and wealthy investment broker who gets a glimpse into the life he might have had had he made the decision to stay with his girlfriend, Kate Reynolds (Téa Leoni), thirteen years before, instead of remaining a bachelor.
The choices you make have a lasting effect on the rest of your life.
Kate: “I think about it too. I do. I wonder about what kind of life I would have had if I hadn’t married you.”
Kate: “And then I realize I’ve just erased all the things in my life that I’m sure about: you and the kids.”
Jack: “Good things.”
Kate: “Yeah. What are you sure about?”
Jack: “I’m sure that right now, there’s nowhere else I’d rather be than here with you.”
