Jack Campbell (Nicolas Cage), a hedonistic Wall Street bachelor, wakes up one day to discover that he’s been plunged into the scruffy domestic life he thought he’d avoided. This schlock weeper is ”It’s a Wonderful Life” remade as a shark-out-of-water comedy — it’s family-values porn for commitmentphobes. Cage does dryly funny double takes as Jack confronts the workaday horror of his new situation. But the actor’s moon-dog mug is required to go misty once too often, and the outsize ticky-tackiness of Jack’s new life has been stitched together out of the broadest possible series of Middle American clichés.
