Another Crush Bites the Dust

OK, it's not like a crush on Kate Beckinsale depends on respecting her work -- her beauty and her charming accent have survived some truly terrible movies. But when I realized tonight that she's starring opposite of Adam Sandler in the forthcoming "Click," the disrespect reached a new level. If you've been lucky enough to avoid the ads, here's how IMDB describes the movie, which really looks like it might be the worst of all-time:
"Click" focuses on a workaholic architect who finds a universal remote that allows him to fast-forward and rewind to different parts of his life. Complications arise when the remote starts to overrule his choices.
One day, I will be back in Dallas for a Bad Movie Club festival, so Jason, do me a favor and add this to the list, if you think we can stomach it.

I'll be there opening night but I am more than happy to watch it with you.

This is a movie about a remote control that allows you to fast forward and rewind real life. And yet, what I find most unbelievable about this movie is the idea that Adam Sandler could ever land Kate Beckinsale. I realize that women are focused on the physical much less than guys (and thank goodness for that, or I'd never get a date), but this is the most unbelievable pairing since Petra Nemcova and James Blunt (for pics, see here):

And it's the "He could never get her" pairing most likely to distract me from the movie since When Harry Met Sally.

Wasn't there some flick in the 70's where a dude had a magic stopwatch and he could stop all time and freeze everything around him in its tracks, yet he could still walk around and do stuff during the frozen moments? (Allowing for such hilarity as stopping everything on a beach, walking up to a beach volleyball game in progress, untying all of the hot chicks' tops, and then starting time again and their tops all fall off and we get to see titties, etc.)


Anyway, this seems a rip-off of that one. There are no new ideas in movies any more. Even the really bad ones are being recycled.
