CLICK

A workaholic architect, who has been overlooking his family in favor of his career, comes across a universal remote that allows him to perform TiVo-like functions on his life, such as pausing events or fast-forwarding over them. When the remote begins creating its own memory and choosing what to fast-forward over, the man sees how much of his personal life has passed him by and realizes the importance of spending more time with his family.

Watch this if you liked: "A Christmas Carol", "It''s A Wonderful Life" and feel-good flicks

Michael Newman (Sandler) is a lot like most modern-day husband and dad. The workaholic architect has little time for his lovely wife (Beckinsale) and their two children, Ben and Samantha. He is too busy trying to please his arrogant boss (Hasselhoff) and seemingly getting nowhere in his career.

One night, while looking for a universal remote control for his television and electrical gadgets at a store, he meets this mad scientist (Walken) who offers him a magical 'clicker' that not only freezes real-life action, but can also 'fast-forward' the events in his life.

At first, things turn out great for Michael as he is able to control everything at home and at work. However, he soon finds that the clicker is also controlling his life and he is paying a terrible price for it!

"Click" is more or less a rehash of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" in which Sandler's 'Scrooge' discovers the meaning of life and love, and especially about spending time with his family. Directed by Sandler's pal, Frank Coraci ("The Wedding Singer" and "The Waterboy"), there is a mix of wonder and fun - and invariably a few tasteless butt gags. Okay, Sandler has toned down a lot on vulgar and crass comedy these days but Coraci feels compelled to let a few through - just to spice things up for the American youngsters. Another case in point is the repeated joke about the Newman's randy dog.

However, what I like about "Click" is that it is a film with its heart in the right place. Its message - about setting life's priorities - is a universal one not only for men but women of today as well. Also, it is a treat to see Henry 'The Fonz" Winkler and veteran TV star Julie Kavner in cameos as Michael's parents. Walken, meanwhile, seems to be having fun fleshing out the mysterious Morty, while Hasselhoff does a great job of making an ass of himself.

A PG-13 comedy suitable for the whole family.
