Running Time: 107 mins

Click is an American film about a man who is given a remote control that controls all of the universe, which allows him to fast forward and rewind or even pause his life, however all goes very wrong when the remote control starts to work on its own.

The interesting thing about this film is that it started as any other Adam Sandler film would: juvenile, nonsensical, and pretty predictable, however strangely, it later turned into a very dramatic and emotional story, evidently intending to be very thought-provoking, which was indeed unexpected.

In terms of the actual comedy of this film, it was all the same, very predictable jokes, and once the story was set, every single scene was totally obvious, which meant that it was not very funny, however, as I said before, despite finding the first part of the movie pretty tedious, the second part was actually very interesting, and it definitely caught my attention after being bored for the first 45 minutes.

Overall, this gets a 7.1 because although it was initially stupid and not that funny, it did evolve well into a very interesting plot line, which was a very nice surprise.
