Click

Ah, finally managed to watch the movie 'Click' with a good friend before it ended its run at the cinemas. Mind you, I'm not an Adam Sandler fan. His last good movie which I enjoyed was 'Waterboy' but after that I found the 'Big Boy' routine a little dry.

Anyway, I thought Click was a great comedy and has quite a meaningful story to tell(However, I found the dog-humping-duck routines to be a little overused and tasteless). In my opinion, Kate Beckinsale was a little too goody-goody as the understanding wife after all her kick-ass heroine roles.

But back to the story, wow, imagine being able to take control of your life like that, to skip the bits you don't like and just go to the time points where you want to. Of course, the catch was you missed out on what happened as you skipped portions of your life. Isn't that just what we all wanted at one time or another? To skip the tough and painful times, and to just reap the rewards. As kids, I think most of us wanted to rush forward and become adults and be 'free' and able to do whatever we want only to realize the grass is always greener on the other side when we finally arrived. Ah, found the show to be a little touching especially the ending. Good, looks like this old fool hasn't completely turned to stone yet.

FINALLY,i manage to get the ticket.hmmm...well,except for the dog-himping-duck,the little boy next door,the scientist,etc..the story is very real n touching.
Skip or get short cut in your life, u will miss a lot of things.no matter good or bad,there are things to be enjoyed.Even when u r sick,there are still things that u can learn and give thanks to.
wat a wife n kid n family need is very simple,just spend time with them.
so,guys you may think your family will be happy n blessed only when u hv earn ed enough to give them good life.but sometimes u may be wrong as life is fragile n there is no end for "enough" ,human needs is endless which will not be fully satisfied all the time n not all gals r materialistic.
