Smug and unfunny "you don't know what you have 'til you lose it" crap, where you just want Walken to turn into Frank White, do away with the irksome Sandler and run off with the lovely Kate Beckinsale. Aeschylus's suffering into truth finds a suitably modern, fast, and painless procedure.
Adam Sandler discover his life is controlled with a remote control and even as commentary track where James Earl Jones narrates his life (the best segment of the film).
