Our Score
Adam Sandler reteams with director Frank Coraci (The Waterboy, The Wedding Singer) in this fantasy comedy that's undermined by queasy sentimentality. Sandler plays a workaholic architect who acquires what he thinks will be the solution to all his problems - a universal remote control that allows him to fast-forward his way through things that peeve him. But he soon realises that skipping life's little obstacles means he misses out on a lot more besides. This is Sandler at his least likeable, and the starry supporting cast struggles to make much headway: David Hasselhoff has fun as his nasty boss, but Christopher Walken is on wacky autopilot as a mysterious boffin, while Kate Beckinsale is wasted as Sandler's long-suffering wife.


A hard-working businessman gets his hands on a remote control that enables him to manipulate all aspects of his life - including fast-forwarding through the bits he would rather miss. However, the device takes on a mind of its own and starts causing him to skip entire years. Comedy, starring Adam Sandler, Christopher Walken and Kate Beckinsale.
