Surprisingly good movie: Click

I have mixed feelings about Adad Sandler.  While in some ways I’m disappointed in him because his humor has gotten more sexually crass over the years, I’ve also been glad to see him attempt to have stonger messages in his movies.  Case in point: 50 first dates.  While I wasn’t happen with the androgynous character Alexa and references to tacos and sausages, I was overall very happy with the themes of true love and dedicating one’s life to another person despite the difficulty of doing so.

Well, Adam Sandler’s latest movie Click, is even more severe in following this trend.  There was even more crude humor, so much so that some of my more sensitive Catholic friends walked out on the movie.  Which is really a shame because once this movie gets rolling… it packs a powerful punch with a VERY compelling moral theme and message.  At the end of the movie (which Wendy and I went to as part of a rare “date night”) we both looked at each other and said the same thing: “That was not what I expected”

It was a powerful movie that REALLY tugged on the heartstrings.  But there was nothing cheap in those tugs.  It was a solid plot and a movie I was very glad to see.

Now only if I could get Sandler to clean up the humor a bit.

    I think I should hang out with you and Wendy more often, I also thoroughly enjoyed ‘Just Like Heaven’ and ’50 First Dates’- I hope to see ‘Click’ soon. Now if only I could get Brian to sit through a ‘chick flick’ once in awhile. ;-)
