Elevator Pitch An architect obsessed with his work to the detriment of his family life, is gifted with a remote under odd circumstances. The remote allows him to fast forward bits of his life he finds difficult, silence noises he does not like and to visit the past and the future. When it takes him into the future beyond his control he finds that his life will not be as he would like.
Content Adam Sandler is irritating, Kate B is beautiful, David Hasselhoff is, well, David Hasselhoff. People and dogs have sex but not in an erotic way. There is fun with the operation of the remote, and for me a certain amount of pathos in the future and some good futuristic sets.
A View I thought the future was handled quite well, even though the results of the operation of the remote was, as Morty said, intuitive. The critics hated it but Adam Sandler films have always made money, and for us this one achieved more than the required six laughs required by a comedy (Mark Kermode standard).
