Adam Sandler has, in the past, done some good work. I didn’t particularly care for Punch-Drunk Love but it was light years better than the “comedies” he’s starred in. My point is that he’s obviously trying to have a career similar to Robin Williams in that he’s started to do dramatic roles in addition to the goofy frat-boy type parts. He’s getting older so it’s going to get harder and harder to pull those off.
Instead of going all-in to a new dramatic role in his new movie Click it looks like he’s trying to slowly transition in a movie that seems to split the difference. One minute it’s a warm family story the next Sandler is acting like a goofball. The trailer is actually pretty good but relies way too much on the latter material. My guess is that people are going to go see this expecting a Sandler-esque comedy and get something that’s not quite that and be disappointed.
