This is an awesome Nick Cage film, and it feels weird saying that considering he's not trying to blow anyone's head off. It's really just a touching family story. It's one of those feel good movies that you can't help but to love it.

Corporate raider and hedonist playboy Nicolas Cage wakes up one morning to find himself living the life he would have led if he'd not chosen his career over an old girlfriend. In other words:
1 Cage wakes up surrounded by kids and associated mess
2 Runs around shocked by the fact that all his rich pals don't recognise him
3 Is horrified by nappies
4 Has a trademark Cage rant about how crappy his new life is
5 Finally learns "what's important"
6 Is dumped back in his old life, to his dismay
7 *Hallmark moment*
