CLICK Doesn't Click For Massawyrm!!

Hola all. Massawyrm here.

Adam Sandler had a good run. Three movies in a row I walked out of liking each one. The Longest Yard was hilarious and nothing near the sacrilege it initially appeared to be. Spanglish was an adorable, heartbreaking little piece of comedy. And 50 First Dates, while frontloaded with Sandlerisms, managed to pull out of its nosedive after the first act as if the director had smacked Sandler around a bit and said “Are you quite done? Good. Let’s make a good movie now and quit with the big dicked walrus jokes.” Sure there were some moments in The Longest Yard and 50 First Dates that were just too Sandler for me, but overall I found them much smarter than his usual fare. But he was bound to make something I didn’t like. He had to. If he’d gone any longer without a good old fashioned fart joke, people might have begun to start taking him seriously. Which brings me to Click.

You know, for a few minutes there, while watching the trailer, I’d begun to believe that Sandler was finally maturing as a comedian and was beginning to make lovable comedies free of his thirteen year old sensibilities. But that just ain’t so. On the contrary, Click is kind of a return to form for Sandler, integrating the sappy sweetness of his recent films with the puerile, man-child dick and fart joke humor of his older work. And while this may delight his fans (it will) it’s certainly not going to win him any new ones from the ranks of those tired of his shticks.

Hmmm…and old school Sandler film without a funny voice? Could there be a Rob Schneider cameo (with a funny voice) in there somewhere? Yup. How about a gag that involves farting in someone’s face? Oh yeah. Maybe some sexually inappropriate animal humor? Does a dog dry-humping a stuffed animal about a dozen times in the film count? Then yes. Yes it does.

Unfortunately, the film offers little else in the way of comedy. There are a few, sparsely placed jokes that are solid and clearly belong in a better movie, but that’s about it. But if stuffed animal humping dogs makes you giggle like nobodies business, this is definitely the film for you.

Click is effectively a Twilight Zone episode retelling of It’s a Wonderful Life crossed with Rip Van Winkle, set in the universe of Liar, Liar and Bruce Almighty, without being half as interesting as all that sounds. Add in a layer of overtly emotionally manipulative story elements and you end up with a film too sappy for some and too sophomoric for others.

It’s certainly not despicable. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t care for it much either. Once the movie gets its premise set up and we’re treated to a series of Adam Sandler altering the laws of reality jokes, the movie veers off in a direction that simply gets too repetitious for its own good. The subsequent broken fast forward feature leads to a long, monotonous, one-note string of Whaaa? How much time has passed? You’re how old? What happened? Immediately followed by a string of answers that leads to FAST FORWARD Whaaa? How much time has passed? You’re how old? What happened? which leads to FAST FORWARD…for the last 45 minutes of the film. That’s when it ceases to be sweet and begins to get just plain heavy handed.

By the last twenty minutes, I had literally pulled out a cigarette and began anxiously chewing on the filter just waiting for the damned thing to end. Come on, we get it! Just skip to the fucking moral and get on with it! Alas…chew, chew, chew.

But it was fun to see Walken hamming it up in his limited screen time (clearly having as much fun as he has on SNL.) And for those who would readily drop 10 bucks to watch Kate Beckinsale eat lasagna for 2 hours (as long as her pants were tight enough) then there’s plenty of her being adorable in skimpy shorts to feast your eyes on. Sadly, this isn’t quite enough to fully satisfy those who enjoy slightly more sophisticated comedy than Dog on Stuffed Duck action.

I just can’t get over the idea that had they cut out the crude humor and swearing, this could have made a really sweet little family film. Or conversely, had they toned down the sweetness and played up some of the ribald ideas they were hinting at, they could have had a fun, raunchy, 80’s style comedy on their hands. Click, however, stands squarely in the middle, going a little too far on each end to really make something that is either.

Sandler fans and more forgiving comedy audiences will probably enjoy its saccharine flavor and crude aftertaste. If you’re the type that thinks Sandler can do no wrong or that Liar, Liar and Bruce Almighty are works of comic genius – you’ll probably get a kick out of this film. It’s cute enough and made fans laugh enough to merit recommending it to you. Otherwise, there’s simply not enough to like to warrant this being anything beyond a Saturday afternoon cable movie.

Until next time friends, smoke ‘em if ya got ‘em. I know I will.

    Yet another How Dare You Work For A Living morality tale movies. You bust your ass for your family and are sanctimoniously told that all your family REALLY wants is to spend more time with you. Oh they want the house and the cars and the plasma TV and the XBox 360, too, but just don't work too much to get all that.

    A movie based on a 7 minute Benny Hill sketch...

    by Professor_Snarf

    I couldn't stop laughing when I saw the commercial for this movie and remembered back in the day Benny Hill did the same premise. He did the exact same stuff like shutting his wife up with the mute button and using his new found remote powers to get his jollies by watching hot girls in slow motion. What's next? A movie ripping off Baby Face Finster from the Bugs Bunny cartoon starring the Wayans brothers?!

    Put Banging KATE BECKINSALE on Loop Mode

    by ZombieSolutions

    if i was CLICK and I was married to Kate Beckinsale, I would rewind to the best sex we ever had, and then loop that forever and ever and ever. Most relationships are shams built up around a moment when the sex was actually good; why not just throw out all the rest of it and just focus eternity on the only moment of bliss you ever had with your shockingly hot wife before she got aall fat and bitchy and awful? For all you married putzes out there, you know its true -- you hate your wife now, thats why your on here instead of talking to her -- but there was a time when fucking her was all you could think about. thats where CLICK should go. oh, and Adam Sandler made like two funny movies about 15 years ago. thats it.

    by wessmith1966

    Sorry, zombie, but while your comments may be true for some, it's not for all. Many relationships get better with time, and the same can be said for the sex. As for the movie, I just don't find Sandler all that amusing, never have. His movies are enjoyable renters or to wait for on HBO.

    Longest Yard

    by EnlightenedOne

    Ok, so not to be a typical talkbacker, but The Longest Yard made me want to gouge my fucking eyes out, what a paint by the numbers laughless shitfest. Who gives shit scripts and directors money to make stuff like this when there is so much undiscovered talent out there. To stay on topic I loved Sandler's early movies, they're part of my adoloscence, and I liked his turn in Punch Drunk love and he was earnest and charming in Spanglish, however I'm sick of the sappy "comedies" he's churning out. I really wish he could find a way to be funny again.

    by vinceklortho

    sorry Massa, great review and all, but I have to agree with some of the masses that I hated the Longest Yard. I like Sandler's earlier stuff like Gilmore and Madison, but that was one hairy piece of shit. Lord, how uninspired was everything in that movie. How many times do we have to see a ragtag group of guys pull together and win a sports game? All while hilarious antics ensue on the field, such as closelining people so they flip really high and guys with cigarettes in their mouths while wearing football helmets. This, sadly, looks like the same reprocessed junk. Like my gay friend, Jesus Christ said above, this is like what we think about when we are kids...wouldn't it be sweet to have a remote control to skip through third period today? Every Saturday morning cartoon gave us this idea! Oh, well... demographics and numbers are the only things that matter this weekend for the suits. I'll give up.

    A philosophical question for you boys

    by Vern

    In this review Massawyrm seems to criticize Click for being allegedly for Adam Sandler fans but not for a wider audience. Yet, in his review of X-Men Part 3 he criticized it for allegedly being for a wider audience but not for X-Men fans. Not to single out Massawyrm, since he's not the only one who sees it that way. I just wonder how they should decide which groups of fans they're supposed to cater to and which ones they're not supposed to cater to. (note: I'm not defending Adam Sandler, this shit looks horrible.)

  • June 21, 2006, 2:23 p.m. CST

    Good point Vern, except...

    by quadrupletree

    X-men is based (although loosely in this case) on source material. So one would expect that if said source material was popular/successful enough to warrant a migration of it to the big screen, that they would at least try to somewhat cater to the fans of the source material that made it so popular in the first place. Other than that you have a point.

  • June 21, 2006, 2:28 p.m. CST


    by quadrupletree

    I think it's important to point out that the two are not mutually exclusive. In either case you could make a film that caters to both the fans AND general audiences. But I think it's just a lot easier to do for a movie based on Adam Sandler's schtick than it is for a movie inspired by 30 years worth of comic books.

  • June 21, 2006, 2:29 p.m. CST

    by foreignerbelt

    in both cases you would be decrying the dumbed down version of the movie. (although I believe in this review massa would have liked them to pick one or the other) in an adam sandler movie, the dumbed down version is for the adam sandler fans. in an x-men movie, the dumbed down version is for the wider audience.

    How is this surprising?

    by Trazadone

    Seriously, Sandler's track record is much more miss than hit. I generally "don't get" his appeal. He's a one-trick pony and almost every film follows the same basic premise (i.e., slacker with a heart of gold). Big fat yawn.

    Talking of Bruce Almighty...

    by Lone Fox

    What's with all these comedies without any comedy in them? The dog peeing standing up was the only funny moment in that waste of 90 minutes. Before this trend, there were the horror flicks without any horror. Scream started it, Rob Zombie perfected it. Come to think of it, there were war films without war too (Pearl Harbour). Though I hear Titanic did actually feature a ship sinking at some point. Now, what the fuck is an 'Adam Sandler'?

  • June 21, 2006, 2:40 p.m. CST

    Hey Vern

    by Massawyrm 1

    Personally, who they decide to cater to is up to them. All I can do as a critic is share what I thought from my point of view and share with the audience where on the specrtum I fall. As an X-Men fan - that was important to know with X3. As I am NOT a Sandler fan - well, that's important to know for Sandler fans who can immediately discount my review for simply not being on the same wavelength comedically. But as Quadrupletree said above, X3 was a special case, as it dealt with existing material and was meant to bring the "built in" fanbase of said material. That's certainly not the case here.***And as to the Longest Yard guys...what can I say? I have a weakness for sports comedies. Take that into account next time I review one.

    Sandler's made four films...

    by Childe Roland

    ...worth a warm shit. They are, in descending order of quality: Punch Drunk Love, 50 First Dates, The Wedding Singer and Happy Gilmore. It's worth noting that only 50 First and Wedding Singer are even films I'd put in the same category with each other (romantic comedies) whereas Punch Drunk is a black comedy with serious dramatic undertones and Happy Gilmore is a slaphappy, juvenile giggle-fest. Each of the latter, I'm now convinced, was a lightning in a bottle proposition for Sandler, never to be captured again in either genre. So I guess I'm not surprised he's sticking pretty much with ROmantic comedies, where his batting average (if not his ERA) is higher). Big Daddy had about three funny moments. Anger Management was crap. Mr. Deeds annoyed me, as did The Waterboy. Billy Madison was just plain worthless. And, I'm sorry wyrm, but The Longest Yard was a sacrelige. The only time Adam Sandler should ever be allowed to act in a remake of a Burt Reynolds film is if he's playing Ned in the Re-Deliverance.

In one case you might disappoint the X-Men fans, in another case you might disappoint the Adam Sandler fans. I'm not saying Adam Sandler is better (even though I like a couple of his old movies) but I would guess that his group in this day and age is probaly way, way bigger. (As depressing as that will be to some of you.) Anyway, don't want to start a comic book war so I will drop it. thanks for your responses.

    I do not care for...

    by Napoleon Park

    I have seem Mr. Sandler on the television chat programmes and he seems like a warm and personable young man. However, I do not care for his films or his sense of humor. This covers his entire cinematic career and extends back to his best recieved work on SNL (Opera man, crazy pickle face man, singing about his red hooded sweatshirt and his Jewish holidays, etc.) *** I also do not care for films named after comic books that are not about the comic book they are named after. Click was an excellent Milo Manara graphic novel and would have made a superb film, albeit an NC-17 rated one. *** And the same thing goes for "Weird Science" and "Karate Kid" - nothing like the comics. [Albeit? Who the fuck says 'albeit'?]

    what about in Happy Gilmore when Adam goes into the batting cages and lets baseballs smack him in the chest to toughen him up. There is something there to make anyone laugh. If you don't think that's funny then you are way too high brow for this site. Peace.

    Bryce is right - parts of Happy Gilmore are just funny.

    The movie as a whole isn't exactly Citizen Kane, but when they go for a bit they hit it. Watching the tour officials talk about Happy while the TV in the background has him going berkserk ["We're live? Fuck you we're live!"] is just funny.

    I didnt find anything funny in Happy Gilmore, either

    And I love the 3 stooges and hate Woody Allen. However, Adam Sandler CANNOT do slapstick; there's something about his delivery, or lack of, that just makes Seriously, I do not laugh at the guy. There is a reason why his target audience is comprised of 12-year-olds and highschool dropouts.

    The only one more untalented than Sandler...

    by moondoggy2u

    is Jimmy Fallon! But since he appeals to the tween audience as well, he will be the next adam sandler--G-d help us.

    ...and everyone who likes Sandler's "humor" should not be allowed to vote.

    Not to worry, troll--

    95% of Sandler's audience isnt even old enough to drive, let alone vote.

    I prefer a more sophisticated humor...

    Well, la-de-friggen-da. A bit too snooty for your own good aren't you? I mean, come gotta be in a friggen coma not to think HAPPY GILMORE and BILLY MADISON are funny. And those are "13-year old fart joke" movies. Who cares. They're funny as hell. Why do you think they're still constantly aired? WATERBOY stunk and so did MR DEEDS. So nobody's saying Adam Sandler's hittin' a hundred. But sometimes the humor works. If it does, go with it. Don't try to make others feel small for appreciating it. If you got a stick up your butt and bring yourself to laugh at something crudely amusing, so be it. Don't take it out on others who do laugh. Hey. And don't knock it. Mel Brooks made fart joke movies. Is BLAZING SADDLES too distasteful for you too?
