Remote is a science fiction movie released in 1993. Directed by Ted Nicolaou, the movie stars Chris Carrara, Jessica Bowman, John Diehl, and Tony Longo. The movie is set in the future, in a time when technology has taken over every aspect of human life. People live in highly automated houses and rely on virtual reality for entertainment. One such person is Randy Mason (Chris Carrara), a teenage boy who spends most of his time playing video games and watching TV.

One day, Randy's life takes a dramatic turn when he receives a strange remote control in the mail. He soon discovers that the remote control has the power to control reality itself. He can pause, rewind, fast-forward, and even skip through time.

At first, Randy uses the remote control for fun, pranking his friends and skipping through boring classes. However, as he becomes more skilled with the device, he realizes that he has the power to change the course of history.

As Randy explores the limits of his newfound power, he begins to understand the consequences of his actions. He alters the course of his father's life, but the changes have unintended consequences. He also sees that he can use the remote control to prevent his mother from dying of cancer, but doing so will have unforeseeable consequences.

Meanwhile, a group of scientists led by Dr. Frank Galloway (John Diehl) is trying to create a device that can manipulate time. They believe that time travel can solve many of the world's problems, but their experiments have unforeseeable consequences.

As Randy continues to experiment with the remote control, he discovers that his actions are being monitored by an unseen force. Someone is trying to stop him from changing the course of history, but Randy is determined to use his power for good.

The movie offers an interesting commentary on the consequences of technology and the power of individual choice. It raises important questions about the use of technology and the responsibility that comes with great power.

The performances in the movie are solid, particularly that of Chris Carrara as Randy. He captures the innocence and excitement of a teenager who suddenly gains immense power. Jessica Bowman is also strong as Randy's love interest, but her character is not given much to do beyond being a romantic interest.

The special effects in the movie are not particularly impressive by today's standards, but they are serviceable for the time period. The movie also makes use of practical effects to create some impressive moments.

Overall, Remote is an interesting and thought-provoking science fiction movie that offers a commentary on the power of technology and individual choice. While it is not a groundbreaking film, it is an enjoyable watch that will leave viewers thinking about the implications of their actions.

Remote is a 1993 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 20 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.2.
