Adam Sandler movies are perfect for video. You can put it on, not pay attention, and not miss very much of the ridiculously predictable plots. Occasionally you'll notice something funny, like Sandler farting in David Hasselhoff's face in CLICK. Ha, ha.

The cast is pretty good. Henry Winkler and Julie Kavner are well-cast as his parents, and Kate Beckinsale is definitely worth looking at. Christopher Walken is well cast.

However, like many movies this year, it has major third act problems, takes itself too seriously, and overstays its welcome by a good 20 minutes.

I see why it was nominated for make-up. They have to make Henry Winkler look young in flashbacks (mostly through creative cinematography and visual effects) and make Sandler look old in flash-forwards.
