Aussie boy's thoughts
Who would’ve been expecting tearjerking moments in this predictable but satisfying comedy? Adam Sandler stars as an exhausted father discovering the strength of a universal remote, but also having displeasure as it all seems to go wrong. The entire plot is something you’ve probably heard of or seen. However, Click really sets off the intelligent idea, providing us with laughs and surprises.
It’s especially unusual and unexpected coming from a typical Adam Sandler comedy, but you’ll find there’s a fair few emotions mainly as it gets more climatic. These moments also teach the importance of family and care, but the film is not best for kids. There’s hysterical but sexual and crude humour.
Even if you’ve never seen other movies or shows featuring the universal remote idea, Click can still be quite predictable when you learn the plot. What’s really enjoyable is Adam Sandler’s appealing character and the other jokes mixed with the ideas. It’s not a masterpiece or a classic, but Click is quite a nice surprise for teens and is successful in entertaining.
