“Click”… Would you Fast-forward your Life?

I just watched “Click” movie. For those who never watched it, the idea is having a remote control that controls your life; you pause, play, fast-forward or rewind as much as you want in your life. Michael Newman (Adam Sandler) blows his life away when he fast-forwards several tiring/painful (or so he thought) moments like sickness, arguments… etc. The movie is mostly funny but the last half an hour is pretty emotionally charged that I cried! After finishing the movie, I gave it a lot of thought. Newman tried to fast-forward only the bad moments but he lost his life in the process. Isn’t it very true? Life is not only a chunk of bad times followed by a chunk of good ones. They intersect together so neatly that I do not think there is something called “an absolutely bad/good day inside out”. The day we lose a loved one, we have close people supporting us. The day we’re marrying the man/lady of our dreams traffic gets horrible or the coiffeur comes really late.

Although I went through bad times where such a remote control would have been very helpful, but now, thinking about it, I do not want to fast-forward any moment of my life. If I could turn back the hands of time, I’d want to live every single moment again. The pain had within it lessons learned, love shown and lifetime relations born. Isn’t this what’s called “living life”?


  1. لماذا خلق النسيان اذاً؟

  2. A very good point ya Oroba. But some people would not even be patient enough to live the difficult moment and then they will be granted “oblivion”.
