Weekend Box Office: “Click” . . . or How Hollywood Lies in Movie Marketing; Cheesy Hasselhoff

By Debbie Schlussel
We recently wrote about “The Break-Up,” which was marketed in advertisement and trailers as a fun comedy. It was neither fun, nor a comedy, unless you want to watch Jennifer Aniston bitching, whining, and arguing with Vince Vaughn for almost two hours.
Then, there is “Click,” Adam Sandler’s latest “comedy,” debuting in theaters, today. It’s about a hard-working architect who gets a remote control that allows him to fast forward, mute, pause, etc. anything in his life. It’s another movie that Hollywood is lying about, trying to suck your $10 out of you. Trailers present it as an upbeat comedy. It isn’t. It’s a depressing, poorly acted movie, that starts out fun and happy, but most of it is depressing and sad, chock full of cheap attempts to make you cry (over Adam Sandler?–I don’t think so) with little pay-off at the end.

The only good jokes in the movie are in the trailer. It’s not a funny movie. Unless you enjoy fart jokes and the same joke about dogs having sex with a stuffed animal repeated over and over and over and over again. And Adam Sandler and his wife joking about imitating the dogs in bed. Try explaining that to your kid whom you took to this movie. Try explaining why everyone dies or grows old fast. Sound fun to you?
Then, there’s the Hasselhoff factor. It’s probably a good idea to skip any movie starring former Baywatch lifeguard David Hasselhoff. His presence is always a good measure of the cheese and stupidity factor, and he’s in this movie in a big way. For your Hasselhoff fix, it’s preferable to watch this free, four-second video of the Baywatch Crybaby shedding tears at the “American Idol” finale. (Yesterday, Hasselhoff blamed his crying on the Bush White House.)
Bottom Line: Skip “Click” and rent something better, instead. While we predict it will be #1 at the box office, this weekend, it’s yet another dumb movie in the long line of Adam Sandler moronism.

The writer and producers of “Click” have just ripped off a Twilight Zone episode for their movie’s premise.
Of course, in a half hour show Serling did a great job with it and had something of substance to say. Today’s Hollywood takes a great idea and turns it into s**t, which is about all their good for anymore.

Stay away! The movie is repulsive on every level. Save you money and spend it on a couple of good books…

I saw the Break Up and didn’t think it was terrible. I thought that Vince Vaughn did a good job carrying a movie that was in the end kind of a downer. I would put it in the category of a movie that you catch when it shows up on HBO or Showtime.

Sadly I laughed out loud when I read that. Nevertheless I think I’ll wait for Click It to come out on video.
