Clicking through life...


I recently watched a film called Click with Adam Sandler.  He plays a character called Michael who is a hard working architect who is given a universal remote control, which he discovers works on his life!  He realizes he can pause events, mute and fast forward them...

At first, it seems like a great idea, but soon he realises he is missing out on whole chunks of his life. In no time, he's getting towards the end of his life and he's missed out on his children growing up, his marriage is over and he discovers his Dad died some time ago.  When he goes back to observe the time when he last saw his Dad he is so preoccupied with work that he doesn't even look at his Dad when he says "I love you". I found it really moving...

As with many stories over the years, Michael gets another chance, and I love it when he rushes into his parents' room and jumps on their bed and tells them he loves them.  I think it's always timely to be reminded about what is important in life...
