Movie Review

Click (2006)

This sunday I watched this movie – Click by Adam Sandler. Many of the English movies are now available in India at affordable rates – this one (VCD) distributed by Sony Music India costs me Rs.299 (USD 7).

The story is a powerful one, something that all of us would have felt in our lives more than once – that is to have a remote control to skip unpleasant moments (or) play again the happy occasions. Unfortunately, the director of the movie Frank Coraci has missed this opportunity to exploit the story line to his advantage. He has given an average movie. The initial half an hour or so was certainly boring and the place where he gets this universal remote control that changes his live forever could have been better. The last half an hour where the incidents that unfold makes Michael Newman (acted by Adam Sandler) realize the consequences of having such a device are certainly taken well. Where he talks about work-live balance, the Director has avoided being too philosophical or toeing religious lines.

Should you watch this movie, yes if you don’t have any other choice (or) you are stuck in a plane.

  • Very nice movie. I am very big fan of adam sandler (I have all his movie). If you get a chance to watch his movies please watch 50firstdates and The wedding singer. Typical love story movies but the dialouge is really really good.

  • unrelated to the post but the landmark sale has started again (i recall you posting about it last year)
    some great deals, books originally priced up of rs 1000 were being sold for between rs 149-300
    of all the so called ‘sales’, i think landmark has perfected it into something truly valuable and genuine

    take care

  • venkat –

    i am surprised you picked up a vcd (which has it’s limitations in terms of disc swapping and obvious video quality).

    also i disagree that prices are reasonable – dvd’s still cost anywhere from rs 400-600 which is prohibitively expensive.

    and for further proof that india and indians are taken for granted, some years ago the top hollywood studios took a decision to launch the top selling movies in china for a price between $1-$2 to combat piracy. yet they apart from other giants choose to milk indians by making us pay higher pricess for inferior products

    just my perspectives
