(USA, 2006, 104 minutes)

A harried architect comes into possession of a mysterious, magical remote control that effectively allows him to freeze, rewind or fast-forward his life at his whim. Ill-advised star vehicle that tries to play an intriguing It’s a Wonderful Life scenario as straight comedy then abruptly veers into maudlin melodrama; either way, it might have worked with better scripting and another star.
