This reviewer is "not" an Adam Sandler film. In fact, the fact that his "LITTLE NICKY" was ever made is a perfect example of what's wrong with the movie industry! However, when in capable hands, he's not that bad. "SPANGLISH" was actually a fine film, and his performance was quite good. "CLICK" is no way as good as "SPANGLISH" and not nearly as dreadful as "LITTLE NICKY".
Sandler tries to be the goofy, but bright, but funny, but loveable dad and husband in "CLICK". He works for a pompous boss, David Hasselhoff, whom gives him little credit and always asks for more. Sandler's character works hard and harder, hoping to move up the corporate ladder to provide even better than he already is for his family. But, in this process, he's seeing them less and less and it appears he's more distant. Things change, when upon visiting an electronics store, an unwitting visit to a special place in back, introduces him to zany Christopher Walken. Walken provides him with a remote that can be used to "click" forward his life at a fast speed, go back, pause and many other options. This premise actually works "sometimes". But, more often it doesn't work, and Sandler relies too heavily on poop jokes, dogs humping jokes, and other infantile humor to make up for what the film lacks in narrative. In the end, a heavy-handed message is thrown in and the film becomes suddenly aspires to be more dramatic than funny, but it's too little too late, and even at 98 minutes, it feels long!!!
SONY has provided the correct 1.85:1 aspect ratio with 16:9 enhancement. "CLICK" offers one of the best looking transfers of the past year. Everything about it is spectacular! Colors are dead-on! PERFECT!!! The blacks and grays are flawless. Detail is exquisite in every single instance. No matter how dark the scene, it's a fantastic looking image.
SONY has provided a DOLBY DIGITAL 5.1 mix. The mix varies in quality. Music tracks are well chosen, particularly the opening "CARS" song, and this is where the mix shines best, boosting all speakers to life with great fidelity. But, there are long segments wherein surrounds are virtually non-existent, only to suddenly come into play with great impact. It's an enjoyable mix that we wish had been more consistent.
SONY has provided tons of trailers for this release! 17!!! Also, on hand are commentary, featurettes and deleted scenes.
