It's Not TiVo. It's MeVo.

Adam Sandler is all grownzed up in real life, and Click is a reflection of that. No more high-tempered man-child doing doofus things. Now it's good-natured (though still high-tempered) man-child who is actually an adult with a wife and kids and a high-powered job, who regrets not having enough time to spend with his family and actually cries. And that's about as critical or analytical as I'm going to be on this movie. Click is a cute, sweet, family-friendly movie that has some funny scenes and cameos from Sandler movie mainstays like Rob Schneider and Sean Astin, plus a typically weird and funny performance by Christopher Walken, but feels a bit neutered, compared to, say, Big Daddy or even Mr. Deeds. Still, Click is not necessarily a bad movie, so it gets a B from me.

A little history for you:

Grade inflation came about as a direct result of the Vietnam War. If students kept a certain GPA, they could go to college avoid the draft. As a result, average schoolwork -- which once earned a C -- would be inflated to a B.

After reading your review, it's good to know that Adam Sandler wouldn't be going to Vietnam.
