Everyone knows Adam Sandler as the funny guy from films like 50 First Dates, Big Daddy and Happy Gilmore, but he's gone all heavy on us on in his latest rip-off... er, "re-make", of classic Christmas film It's A Wonderful Life. Find out if it's worth the ticket price or if you'd be better off catching Jimmy Stewart in the real thing.

Click - Gassy Guiles

Michael Newman (Adam Sandler) is a stressed-out architect trying to balance his family and work life. When he gets his hands on a universal remote that literally controls his universe, things get a little out of hand. While you might think that hilarity is bound to follow, it seriously doesn't. Oh sure, there are a ton of fart gags and humping dogs, but at the end of the day this is a darker film with a serious message about the meaning of life. The meaning of life as it pertains to fart jokes, at least.

Click - Control Issues

Things really get out of control when Michael discovers that the remote has a mind of its own. It automatically learns his preferences (like TiVo or "MeVo" as Christopher Walken's character, Morty, so cleverly points out). So after Michael fast-forwards through boring family dinners, work, and arguments with his wife (Kate Beckinsale), the remote begins to automatically skip those things - and Michael's life flies by without him. He coasts through countless years on autopilot while his children grow up, his marriage falls apart and he unknowingly gains 400 pounds. Man, if that's comedy, give us drama any day!

Click - DVD Features

Get a real bang for your buck with the Click DVD. Hear from star Adam Sandler, as well as the movie's director, producer and writer, about the making of the flick. When you've played through that, watch cool deleted scenes, multiple movie featurettes that look at the various special effects used on the set of Click like the fat suit and futuristic cars!

Click - Bottom Line

Click is a feel good family movie that pushes enough emotional buttons for your mom, and has enough fart jokes and silly gags for you. It's certainly not an all out laugh-fest, but how could it be when it's focusing on such serious topics as love, loss, death and the downfall of a man at his own hands? If you're an Adam Sandler fan (come on, there's still a few of you out there, right?) you'll dig the classic Sandler-shtick that's packed into this movie. Otherwise, Jimmy Stewart: 1 Adam Sandler: 0.
