If you’ve seen “It’s a Wonderful Life” you’ve basically seen this one—well, minus a few fart gags and dogs humping things.
Adam Sandler is an overworked guy, trying to get ahead in the world. One night at Bed, Bath and Beyond, Christopher Walken gives him a universal remote that controls the universe. Sandler soon finds he can go back to any chapter of his life, as long as he was there. He can also fast-forward through the boring parts, which he does.
There is a catch. The remote learns what Sandler does and begins to work on its own. Soon, Sandler has fast forwarded through all of his life and missed the really important things.
Click has a few laughs, most of which we saw in the trailers. It’s predictable in a good way and Sandler does a decent job. But overall, it’s not great and while the ending is sappy and sentimental, it wrings hollow.
