So the plot is nothing new, its similar to It’s a Wonderful Life, but to a degree. It follows Michael Newman (Adam Sandler, of course) an architect – is it just me or is architect the career of nearly every ‘average family man’? Michael has a lovely family, Donna (Kate Beckinsale!) and his two-cliché children, boy and a girl of course. Oh, let us not forget Sundae, the dog that likes the hump their toy duck. Sandler has the usual problem of juggling family over work, so after a little late night fight, he decides to match those neighbours, which always seem to be better than his family, and get a universal remote. So he stops at Bed, Bath and Beyond for some reason, I mean really is that the best place they could think of for him getting a universal remote? Anyway, Adam goes into the Beyond section and meets Morty (Christopher Walken) where he receives a free universal remote. Yet there is a few strange things happening with this free gift. Soon he discovers he has the power to control time with the remote. Does it get to his head? Will he abuse his newfound ability?
