John & Becky’s Movie Review Of Click

Click PosterBecky and I went to see Click the other night at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch. The MovieFone website at Click describes the movie as follows:

‘Click’ focuses on a workaholic architect, Michael Newman, (Adam Sandler) who discovers a universal remote control which allows him to fast-forward and rewind through different parts of his life. However, when the remote begins overriding his choices, life goes from calm to chaos overnight.

The Review

When I first saw the previews for Click I thought it looked pretty lame and figured it would be another predictable and pretty stupid Adam Sandler film. I was hopeful that it might have the kinds of laughs that Happy Gilmore had, but I didn’t have high expectations for Click.

That may be why the film clicked with us. It is as much a drama as a comedy. It’s definitely not a chidren’s film by any stretch with adult language and situations. Click has a very good story and shows how easy it is to get lost in work while missing out on the best things that life has to offer. It also showed how easy it is to mentally tune people while still being physically around and get lost in your own world, which I think many viewers will relate to.

Adam Sandler was believable in the role as Michael Newman who is a workaholic architect who gets a universal remote control that allows him to control his own universe. It doesn’t take long to realize that fast-forwarding through the difficulties of life’s relationships and situations or spending your life living in the past is a terrible idea. God allows us to go through challenges to build character and give us the opportunity to impact the lives of others. That’s what was great about Click.

Becky thought the message of the story was the same as that of RV and I would have to agree, but it was very well done. Becky and I both thought tht it was Worth The Trip.
