Review by Joseph Paul John McCarthy

SYNOPSIS:

A magic remote control gives a workaholic architect the ability to travel forward or backward, but mainly forward in time.

REVIEW:

This film ranks so badly in the top 100 time travel films list for three simple reasons; 1( It’s not funny. 2( It’s Adam Sandler’s usual character that he plays in almost all of his films and 3( You know at the very beginning that nothing in this film matters because by the end everything in the film will be undone.

“Click” is also basically a pale badly executed imitation of that classical time travel movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life”, a film whose concept must be the most copied and re-copied and parodied by several different films, sit-coms and sci-fi television shows.

Adam Sandler plays Michael Newman, an over worked Architect who is more interested in his career than his family. Being an American Dad in a comedy film he has no idea how to use the many TV remotes in his house. So he goes out to buy a new one from Bed, Bath and Beyond, where he proceeds to lie on a bed and close his eyes, but you should probably not think any more about that. I mean he’s definitely not falling asleep.

Michael then finds the section of the store marked ‘Beyond’ where he meets a store clerk named Morty )Christopher Walken( who gives him a “universal” remote control. After getting back home Michael quickly discovers that the remote actually is universal in that it controls the universe.

Michael uses the device to skip certain events to do with family in order to get work done; unbeknownst to him the device is programming itself to skip these events automatically. When Michael chooses to skip ahead to his promotion he loses a year of his life. Eventually he loses ten years of his life as he finds himself CEO of his company and grossly overweight. He eventually discovers that his father has died and he missed his own divorce. The remote skips him ahead to his son’s wedding; Michael is now very old and has a heart attack.

I don’t normally have a problem with Adam Sandler, his mid-90’s films were funny, admittedly I was a teenager and so found funny voices a poo jokes funnier than I do now. But I think that his films are genuinely watchable. But this one just isn’t funny, tired old jokes and casting that was obviously done for the joke value; as in “Ooh look David Hasselhoff is the boss, that’s funny” and “Ah, Christopher Walken is the Angel of Death of course.”

With childish humour and adult concepts, it’s difficult to think who this film was aimed at. It could have been really good. Either by playing it more straight and focusing on the loss of family connections, both through death and Adam Sandler’s character’s work obsession or by making the film actually funny.

If you are a fan of Adam Sandler no doubt you will have already seen this film in which case I hope you enjoyed it more than I did.
