Click is a mixed bag. It has elements of comedy, tragedy (tear-jerk style), fantasy, science fiction, family film, not-family film, don't-work-too-hard-family-is-most-important morality-play, and several other genres. It does all these OK, not badly, not great.
The cast is good: Adam Sandler playing the not quite wise adult, Kate Beckinsale playing the beautiful not-getting-enough-attention wife, Christopher Walken playing the inventor from beyond beyond, and a strong supporting casting including Henry Winkler, Julie Kavner and David Hasselhoff.
I enjoyed some of it.
