The comedian-turned-actor shows he's growing up by exercising a little restraint

Click continues the fascinating process of watching Adam Sandler mature onscreen. The frat-boy humor remains, but as in 2004's 50 First Dates, it's leavened by honest heart, compelling inventiveness and the acknowledgment that not everything in life exists to be snickered at.

Sandler plays Michael Newman, a successful architect whose drive and ambition leave no time for his family. They also leave him with no time to master his household's plethora of remotes, that bewildering pile of advanced technology that is the bane of family rooms everywhere. Frustrated to the breaking point when he goes to turn on the TV and the garage door opens instead, he jumps in his car and heads out to find a universal remote.

Click (Columbia Pictures) Starring Adam Sandler, Kate Beckinsale, Christopher Walken. Directed by Frank Coraci. Rated PG-13. Time 107 minutes.
