If it weren't for absolutely gorgeous Kate Beckinsale and a quirky performance by Christopher Walken, this movie would be a total loss. Adam Sandler is distinctly unappealing as a junk food-eating, overworked, pre-obese guy who gets a lesson a la "It's a Wonderful Life" in what life would be if it was as Sandler wished it. Walken as a Bed Bath & Beyond ethereal salesman gives Sandler a Universal Remote which has the power to control real-life actions, e.g., pausing, fast-forwarding, etc. At first Sandler restricts himself to the predictable gag uses (pausing the action of the town bully having a catch with his son so that the bully is hit in the face by the ball) or just racing through inconvenient moments such as fights with his wife or traffic jams. But, of course, he graduates to major leaps in time and change of life events that can only lead to trouble. When the remote starts to act on its own in response to Sandler's established preferences, life literally moves too fast. Of course there is a lesson in priorities and we can all guess the "dreamy" ending. But other than Beckinsale and Walken (and kudos David Hasselhoff in a kitschy Robert Wagner does #2 role), the characters are singularly unappealing and unmemorable. Julie Kavner and Henry Winkler as Sandler's Jewishy stereotypical parents/grandparents are pathetic. Gonna content myself listening to "The Hanukah Song" this Holiday season.
This movie takes a great idea and an even better actor and spoils them both. Boring. That's all this movie was, I wanted to use my remote to fast-forward through the entire show. The only redeeming feature really was watching Christopher Walken perform. Adam Sandler was subpar as was the overall story. If you're looking for a good recent Sandler flick check out Spanglish which was much better done.
Not at all funny, and the movie resort's to possible tragedy at the end in order to try and bring a tear to your eye-but of course everything is OK after all, right? Of course-this is Hollywood after all. Easily Adam Sandler's worst effort. Adam-go back to being a funny man. Who care's if you can really "act"-we have people for that already!
well, i bought online but never recieved it. so, i had to order it off my satellite just to watch it. i thought it was ok movie. i think they ruined by showing all the good parts of the movie on commercials. it was sad and made my family cry at the end when his dad passed away and then he was dying in the street.
I have to say i do like adam sandler and this just wasnt his movie. The acting was poor except for the exception of christopher walken ofcourse. And it wasnt as funny as I had thought it would be. Although the meaning was good. Too many of us just take our lives for granted and this movie really opens your eyes on that aspect.
I expected a ton of 'Sandler Laughs' from this movie but was instead bored by a predictable, way to long drama that is an 'It's a wonderful life' ripoff. At the end I was just trying to get him to 'rewind back to the beginning already'
If you want some laughs go watch Happy Gilmore again, if you want Drama this is a better fit or go rent something else.
the movie was not in the cover it was a ugley cover. The reason I bougth it because I thought there was a cover that had the pic. on it. The dice was fine it works. I guess at the end of the I liek to have covers when I buy the dvd's. in one way I was disappointed because of the cover the dice came in. But the movie is a really funny movie
This movie could not keep my attention. I found it hard to follow and boring most of the way through. I like Adam Sandler but he has had better movies.
We ordered this movie hoping to see a good Adam Sandler movie, we didn't....
It wasn't his best movie and quite possible his worse. It was dull and we fell asleep. Wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone.
Bought the movie because I loved "Happy Gilmore" and thought Adam Sandler was supurb in that movie. In Click, I thought there was way too much inappropriate lanuage. Couldn't even watch the whole movie, and decided to sell it on ebay after I paid full price for it. Oh well.
