Starring Adam Sandler, Click tells the story of Michael Newman, an overworked architect who neglects his family after acquiring a magical universal remote that enables him to control reality. Aside from shamelessly borrowing some plot elements from It’s A Wonderful Life, Click has a lazy kind of humor that simply doesn’t land.
Surprisingly, the movie manages to conclude with a heartwarming ending. After happily skipping the boring and unpleasant times of his life, Michael eventually realizes that the remote has taken control of his life for the worse and subsequently learns to cherish all the precious moments with his family. Sandler brilliantly pulled off a touching performance at the end of the movie, which is a weirdly poignant portion of the otherwise stinker-filled comedy.
