The Family Man (2000)

Jack Campbell (Nicolas Cage), a successful and talented businessman, is happily living his single life. He has everything, or so he thinks. One day he wakes up in a new life where he didn't leave his college girlfriend for a London trip. He is married to Kate (Téa Leoni), lives in Jersey and has two kids. He, of course, desperately wants his life back for which he has worked 13 years for. He is President of P. K. Lassiter Investment House and not a tire salesman at Big Ed's. He drives a Ferrari and not a mini-van that never starts. And most importantly he doesn't wake up in the morning with kids jumping on the bed. After a bad start, day by day he's more confident in his new life and starts to see what he's been missing. Turns out money's good to have but that's not everything.


otsoNY Comments: The corporate offices for Lassiter Investment House were supposed to be on Wall Street, but were in fact on Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan.

otsoNY Comments: The entrance and lobby of the Seagram Building located at 375 Park Avenue was also used for the Lassiter Investment House, and it is a building that has also been featured in several other movies such as "Hitch", "For Love and Money", and the Christmas favourite, "Scrooged".

Seagrams Building

The Seagram Building is a skyscraper in New York City, located at 375 Park Avenue, btw 52nd Street and 53rd Street in Midtown Manhattan. It was designed by the German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, in collaboration with the American Philip Johnson and was completed in 1958. It is 516 feet tall with 38 stories. Severud Associates were the structural engineering consultants. It stands as one of the finest examples of the functionalist aesthetic and a masterpiece of corporate modernism. It was designed as the headquarters for the Canadian distillers Joseph E. Seagram's & Sons, thanks to the foresight of Phyllis Lambert, the daughter of Samuel Bronfman, Seagram's CEO.

otsoNY Comments: Principal photography on The Family Man began in November 1999, in Teaneck, New Jersey, and Sleepy Hollow, New York, where fall foliage was still in evidence. Special effects supervisor John Richardson and his team had to transform the neighborhoods into a picturesque winter wonderland to set the snowbound Christmas scene, and dust the streets of Manhattan with a mini-blizzard.

otsoNY Comments: Jack's penthouse apartment is at the top of the Olympic Tower, a 51-story building in Midtown Manhattan. Built in 1975, it was constructed on a site that was occupied by a Best & Company Store that was built in 1947. It contains 225 condominium apartments and more than 250,000 square feet (23,000 m2) of office space and retail space. Situated next to St. Patrick's Cathedral, it offers views of the cathedral's buttresses and Fifth Avenue.

otsoNY Comments: Nicholas Cage's character attempts to enter this apartment building, claiming that he lives there after his life has been turned upside down. This is in fact a completely different building to that of his penthouse apartment which had views of the New York's skyline and was on 5th Avenue.

Apartment Entrance, 2000 Broadway (btw West 68th & 69th Streets) Manhattan.
   

otsoNY Comments: Not all scenes were shot in New York, and in fact, the majority of the film's interior scenes were shot in Los Angeles during a seven-week span of filming at locations that included the elegant Regent Beverly Wilshire hotel, the Los Angeles International Airport and suburban homes in the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys.

Kate's Apartment, 14 Washington Mews and 5th Avenue, Manhattan.
