'Click'
(Adam Sandler, Christopher Walken, Kate Beckinsale, David Hasselhoff, Henry Winkler, et al / NR / 84 mins / Sony Pictures)

Overview: A workaholic architect (Adam Sandler) is faced with a dilemma: go on a vacation with his wife (Kate Beckinsale) and kids or work overtime to land a high-profile design job. Saving him from making this choice is an eccentric Bed, Bath & Beyond product developer (Christopher Walken), who gives him a universal remote that allows him to rewind, fast-forward, slow down and pause his own life.

Verdict: Sandler, an emasculated architect, finds a magical universal remote that helps him control not just his TV but everyone and everything around him. But his always-in-hand, Viagra-blue, phallic clicker (a substitute for values and a spine) ruins his whole life. By comparison, you can feel lucky that this monumentally stupid movie only ruined two hours of yours! Like 2001's 'The Family Man', this is a movie about how you shouldn't chase after material success because it will cost you your soul (Sandler's remote fast-forwards through the little life moments to get to the business promotions). Then the filmmakers pull the funniest trick of all. They get you to pay them for the opportunity to sit at the feet of Hollywood wisdom! Sporadically amusing, conspicuously unfunny, 'Click' is yet another uninspired Adam Sandler goof-fest!
