Click Synopsis


A workaholic architect, who has been overlooking his family in favor of his career, comes across a universal remote that allows him to perform TiVo-like functions on his life, such as pausing events or fast-forwarding over them. When the remote begins creating its own memory and choosing what to fast-forward over, the man sees how much of his personal life has passed him by and realizes the importance of spending more time with his family.


We’ve all had this fantasy. Even the most loving husband has at least wondered what life would be like if he had a mute button to use on his wife during a fight. Can I fast forward through the work day and skip straight to my couch, a bag of Doritos, and a basketball game? It’s an obvious movie concept, and one that’s been done before. Click isn’t exactly original. Hollywood is full of people interacting with televisions and television accessories in unpredictable ways. Our movie stars are always getting paused, rewound, or flat out sucked into their television. What Click has going for it is familiarity. It’s a comfortable premise for a movie and if United 93 or V for Vendetta’ box office receipts are any indicator, then modern movie audiences are all about avoiding anything uncomfortable or challenging.

It can only help the comfort level of Click to have Adam Sandler starring. Somewhere between Happy Gilmore and Punch-Drunk Love (maybe while we were all still smarting from Little Nicky), Sandler became a Hollywood A-lister. He’s a big box office draw, everything he touches turns to gold. Except Rob Schneider. There’s no helping him.

That’s alright. Sandler deserves it. Critics love to bash Adam, but he’s a star for a reason: He’s funny. He’s not particularly challenging or surprising, but he’s consistently funny. The guy gets laughs with every outing. What other comedic actor can claim that? Not Jim Carrey. Not Robin Williams. Definitely not Chris Rock. Even in his worst moments (Little Nicky again), Sandler is funny. Maybe he’s a one trick pony. Maybe he’s only got one kind of shtick. But it’s good shtick, and Sandler it seems is a long way off from wearing out his welcome.
