Michael (Adam Sandler) is an average family guy who is overcome by work and frustrated by the complications in his life. He and his wife are continually arguing because he places work before her and their two young children. His efforts to get ahead at work are hindered by his boss, a selfish jerk unwilling to acknowledge and reward Michael's efforts. After being frustrated by his inability to work the TV remote and finish his work, Michael goes to Bed, Bath and Beyond to find a universal remote control. Finding the strange "Beyond" section of the store, Michael meets the mad professor-esque Morty, who offers Michael a brand new remote that is not actually available yet.
When Michael gets home with the remote, he accidently discovers that it not only controls his various electronic devices, but everything else in his life. Soon he is using it to fast forward through traffic and other tedious and unimportant things, as well getting ahead at work.
His life starts to spiral out of control when the remote starts programming itself based on his previous actions. Suddenly he is fast forwarding through traffic, fights, dressing and sex. Soon he finds himself losing large chunks of his life as he also skips sickness and waiting for promotions. He finds himself jumping years forward and begins to realize that he has wasted his entire life working and alienating his family.
