Nicholas Cage stars in this dramatic comedy from director Gore Verbinski (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL), once again playing a handsome bachelor in a post mid-life crisis (ADAPTATION, THE FAMILY MAN, MATCHSTICK MEN). The son of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Robert Spritz (Michael Caine), David Spritz (Cage) is a successful Chicago weatherman who for reasons beyond his understanding, frequently gets fast-food thrown at him on the street. Could the reason for this be that Davids job, though lucrative, requires little exertion, allowing him to occupy what even he admits is a relatively easy existence? Living in the shadow of his fathers greatness, and in the wake of a recent marital separation, David messily struggles to impress his father, reconnect to his estranged wife (Hope Davis), and save his troubled kids (Gemmenne de la Pena, Nicholas Hoult), all while trying to land a coveted job in New York. Davids efforts to reach and protect his kids feel realistic in that they are heartfelt, but not always successful. Likewise, Davids marriage contains tangible flaws that reveal themselves in interesting ways. THE WEATHER MAN contains just as much sadness as it does comedy, and does a good job of finding one in the other. Some of the films most heartbreaking scenes are also the funniest, the best example of this being when David learns that his daughter is being called Camel-toe at school. Each time Cages clueless and vulnerable David gets hit with a burrito, milk shake, or McDonalds apple pie, we genuinely feel for the guy. Through increasingly insightful voiceovers, viewers are taken on Davids journey from the lazy desire for things to be easy to the hard realisation that things never are, and as Davids wise father says early on in the film: life without struggle is meaningless.
