I want to see what else is in the beyond section of bed bath and beyond

[–]Kusibu 773 points774 points  (38 children)

So basically Warehouse 13?

[–]NoAttentionAtWrk 189 points190 points  (35 children)

That was such an amazing show! Sucks that there isn't another show with similar theme

[–]Marksman157 104 points105 points  (17 children)

I’ve not had a chance to check it out, but I’ve heard “The Librarians” does have a similar theme. Wish I could tell you more about it.

[–]GaryCXJk 53 points54 points  (6 children)

I love The Librarians. It's a direct continuation of the Librarian trilogy made-for-tv film series. The film series is the reason I was stoked about the television series, and it's the only live-action series I currently watch.

[–]100_points 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Oh that's where they keep the coffee mugs

[–]vault-of-secrets 3404 points3405 points  (126 children)

I saw this movie as a kid thinking it was just another comedy only to realize how messed up it was.

[–]Spitzenhund 1634 points1635 points  (16 children)

It was the first movie to give me legitimate existential dread I think.

[–]_Lady_Deadpool_ 345 points346 points  (1 child)

not having existential dread as a result of childhood trauma

Pssh, casual

[–]ajg1993 124 points125 points  (5 children)

SAME. The concept of helplessly watching your entire life whiz by while a soulless placeholder version of yourself estranged you from everyone you ever cared about was fucking nightmarish to grapple with when I saw it in theaters as a tween. That happy ending did absolutely nothing to ease the dread I felt watching it, and it continued bothering me for a long time afterward.

It’s also worth noting that the analogous “never been born” section of It’s a Wonderful Life only takes up about 30 minutes of actual screen time near the end of the film, while Click makes you sit in the horror for virtually the entire film.

[–]mrsegraves 463 points464 points  (77 children)

I remember everyone shitting on this movie when it came out but my family liked it. We are Sandler fans who were expecting a comedy. Instead we got a movie that made us all sad

[–]OpsCon1 332 points333 points  (69 children)

Click and 50 First Dates are the only Sandler movies I really like. Waterboy was quotable, but not really good in any way. Except maybe for Fairuza Balk being in it.

[–]masman99 147 points148 points  (13 children)

You don’t like Happy Gilmore or Billy Madison?

[–]coalcoalcoal 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I think Happy Gilmore was a better movie, but it definitely catered towards my 12 year old brain at the time.

[–]mrsegraves 155 points156 points  (15 children)

There's a special place in my heart for Waterboy. I can't help but laugh every time I watch it and it's one of my go-to movies for boosting mood. But like you said, it isn't 'good,' just enjoyable.

What about 8 Crazy Nights? I know it's a cartoon but I think it's one of his best films

[–]greenmonkeyglove 59 points60 points  (8 children)

It's the only film I've ever cried at.

[–]AndyCircus 10.7k points10.7k points  (404 children)

That movie is so dark throughout (until the end) that it feels like a studio came in and told them to change the ending. I wonder if, as originally conceived, it ended with him dying alone.

[–]pinkiepieisbestpony 5720 points5721 points  (223 children)

Happens all the time. In the movie Dodgeball they wanted the team to lose in the end, which of course is contrary to most underdog sports movies, but the studios wouldn't allow it. In the end they had to do a happy ending, which is far less funny than if they had just lost imo.

I believe that's why Ben Stiller went on that rant at the end of the credits.

[–]IlluminatusUIUC 4057 points4058 points  (89 children)

I think that's why the chest of money says "Deus Ex Machina" on it

[–]HasFiveVowels 1226 points1227 points  (15 children)

I never noticed that. That's hilarious.

[–]Sorkijan 241 points242 points  (12 children)

It's hard to see but you can make it out at 1:24:53 when Vince Vaughn opens the chest.

[–]KILLGUN345 203 points204 points  (11 children)

Did you spend the time finding the exact time stamp, down to the second, just to help people see this?

True hero right here.

[–]bobtheblob6 25 points26 points  (1 child)

He mightve known it just off the top of his head

[–]iamangrierthanyou 12 points13 points  (7 children)

But couldn't be bothered to post a screen grab for us folks...

[–]tepkel 331 points332 points  (14 children)

Woulda been even better if it was filled with gold wrenches.

[–]Littlebigreddit50 210 points211 points  (12 children)

Adam Sandler Destroyed every golden wrench

Adamn Sandler has been banned from the trading server

[–]hodontsteponmyrafsim 303 points304 points  (32 children)

Damn I didn't know that. I always liked the happy ending but if they lost it would've been pretty funny I'm sure

[–]taschneide 416 points417 points  (28 children)

Heck, they could still go with the "I took the money you gave me and bet on the outcome of the match" twist - just bet on the other team.

[–]Bomcom 264 points265 points  (5 children)

That's a bold strategy Cotton, let's see if it pays of for them.

[–]floatdaflop24 85 points86 points  (3 children)

Well yeah but his odds would have been terrible instead of 50 to 1 on his money it would be close to the opposite. So it wouldn’t work.

[–]TebownedMVP 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Usually be worse. If the the underdog is like +5000 than the favorite is like -8000. Bookies usually like a 40% juice. Then when odds stabilize they'll reduce juice on both sides.

[–]LatverianCyrus 253 points254 points  (16 children)

I think they could have done a "the team loses" ending amusingly...

...but the one they actually did shoot (or, at least, the one that's on the DVD extras) is not a good ending. It's super abrupt. Ben Stiller wins, they celebrate for half a second, freeze frame, credits. It's like someone starts telling a joke, then pauses part-way through the punchline.

[–]jiokll 154 points155 points  (3 children)

I honestly think that ending was a joke for the dvd for the reasons you described.

[–]LatverianCyrus 62 points63 points  (2 children)

I mean, we know they originally had a bad ending. We know test audiences hated it. We know they put something they say is the original ending on the DVD, so I assume that's actually the original ending.

[–]Canberling 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I would've been happy if they had ended it by actually just putting on the Thong Song and tearing the place apart when he suggested it.

[–]I_Has_A_Hat 195 points196 points  (11 children)

It wasnt just that the original ending is negative, it was just plain bad. IIRC the original ending was right after the sudden death match, then it goes slow mo and you see the people from globogym celebrating while the average joes look dejected.

Then it just ended. No conclusion, no wrap up, that was it. I wouldnt have even minded if the average joes still lost, but holy shit it definitely did need a new ending.

[–]TheGentlemanBeast 103 points104 points  (8 children)

It actually ended right when Vince was hit. There was no: “You stepped over the line/sudden death” bit.

The sudden death bit was hilarious. I’m glad they changed it.

[–]Radidactyl 83 points84 points  (2 children)

The fact that Ben Stiller literally flies back 20 feet after being hit and seemingly goes unconscious at the end just lying there was beautiful.

[–]albatrossG8 87 points88 points  (21 children)

Tbh the happy ending fits the movie better. One movie that as a kid that I remembered that needed a sad ending was 1000 words with Eddie Murphy

I’m in my mid 20s. I guess it felt like a lot longer ago.

[–]MellowBug 1100 points1101 points  (90 children)

God that movie makes my ugly cry. The guttural sounds that come from my throat when he’s calling for his son are unlike any other sound I make.

[–]PsychoticPixel 1158 points1159 points  (60 children)

Also watching him watch himself completely blow off his dad when he goes into his office and promises to finally show him how the trick works but blows up in his face telling him " I know how the stupid quarter trick works, I've e always known" then he later dies that night.

End the movie there and you got yourself permanent emotional damage nation wide.

[–]The-Liciouz 565 points566 points  (4 children)

It's even worse when he goes back and sees his dad cry as soon as he left

[–]Brockmire 259 points260 points  (36 children)

Man I watch a ton of movies and often forget almost every detail. It's been a long time since I saw this and I still remember lots of parts and the fact that the dad was Henry Winkler (right? didn't even look it up.) Good job for an Adam Sandler film.

[–]EuropaStation 231 points232 points  (33 children)

Adam Sandler is am amazing actor when it's not all slapstick. Have you seen that cobbler movie on Netflix? Top notch.

[–]ancientcreature2 123 points124 points  (18 children)

You know he's loved when it comes down to it. You ser people criticize his shitty moneymakers and people excuse him cashing out while hanging with his friends, but there's so little actual hate. People will never consider what he does now to negate his Happy Gilmore era. Unless he rapes a bunch of people.

[–]MitWagna 65 points66 points  (9 children)

I actually only see people hate on him on this very website.

[–]The_Ogler 71 points72 points  (5 children)

That's your example of his acting skill?!? Not Punch Drunk Love?!?

[–]DRAAIIIIINNNNIDGE 125 points126 points  (8 children)

Yeah that part was absolutely horrific. Now that my Dad has passed away I'm not sure I could watch that scene.

[–]Zosimoto 78 points79 points  (3 children)

Stay away from Big Fish. My pops was similar enough to the Dad in Big Fish that I can’t watch it more than once every few years.

[–]MuddyFilter 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Indeed if that scene doesnt make you feel anything, youre probably not alive.

[–]Death_Star_ 397 points398 points  (18 children)

Same here.

Semi related anecdote.

My father loved me. Treated me like a prince, I treated him like a jester for a few years.

But I was a brat around my teens when he got cancer because I employed the “push away until they don’t love you anymore and you don’t love them so you can’t lose someone you don’t love” technique as a major a-hole. That lasted 3 of the 7 years he went in and out of cancer. My father never held it against me.

I grew up. Made amends. Things were good. He passed on good terms.

Then, I found an ooooold VHS recorder from like 1987-1989 (DOB 1982 here), and I hooked it up.

Turns out, he video taped himself and me fooling the school to play hookie so that we could go to SeaWorld.

I didn’t care for the animals at that age but I sure loved the bouncy house.

Here’s where I wept:

While watching my 5-year old self get lost in he bouncy house fun, my dad kept yelling my name in the way you know someone is smiling when saying something. He just kept repeating it and repeating it patiently and I was just off in my own world. He turned it off in 5 minutes when I didn’t respond.

All he wanted was a good look of the joy on my face that he brought me.

I never gave him that. I could have $100 billion tomorrow and still not get that.

Those are the only 5 minutes in the world that have his voice.

Drip, drip

[–]HoNesty_Box 208 points209 points  (1 child)

Dad checking in.

Your dad for sure didn't need to see your face to know you were happy...he was just doing camera duty. He turned it off not because he was tired of getting your attention, but because he wanted to enjoy the moment.

You don't have a VHS of your face but I promise he had the memory all of his days.

[–]tankthefrank 138 points139 points  (2 children)

He didn't need to see your face to know the joy he gave you, though. You may not think you ever gave him that one moment but I guarantee you gave him so much more. Don't regret that.

[–]Swenyspeed 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Duuude... I woke up, got on Reddit, and now I’m emotionally trashed.

[–]conkedup 88 points89 points  (0 children)

I remember I was in high school, feeling a little emotional after a break up. I was looking through my movie cabinet for a pick-me-up, saw Click and thought "Yeah! Adam Sandler is a funny guy! I'll watch this!"

I found myself ugly crying towards the end of the movie too.

[–]WinkleStinkle 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I remember seeing this in theaters with my friend and his mother at the time. His father had passed away when he was young and his mother ended up bawling her eyes out...but to be fair, so was everyone else in the theater. That was a sad movie.

[–]Jigsus 281 points282 points  (22 children)

They totally did. You just know they did.

[–]GroovingPict 197 points198 points  (21 children)

Absolutely. They even changed the ending of Brazil in the US ffs... I mean, that was already a done movie, but when released in the US they went "nah... we gonna have to re-edit this to the point where it makes absolutely no sense, and also of course change the ending completely". It seems Hollywood is allergic to anything that doesnt have a "guy gets girl and they live happily ever after" ending.

[–]Notasurgeon 170 points171 points  (0 children)

Screenwriters make art, producers make money.

[–]finalremix 19 points20 points  (0 children)

They did this to the sequel of The Crow. It was called The Crow: City of Angels, and the original story line had the protagnist get revenge and spend the rest of time wandering the earth as an undead spirit after falling for Sarah and failing to avenge his son.

The ending we got was actually a dream sequence in which Ashe meets with his son, only to wake up and regret not helping his son. Instead, it's just the way the movie ends in a nice "walks off into the spiritual sunset" scene.

[–]roflz 77 points78 points  (10 children)

I saw the preview screener for Click. We were shown two endings, one of which was Sandlers character dying. But he went to some weird happyish heaven thing. I can't entirely remember because this was a long long time ago. But I do for a fact remember at least two endings.

[–]kappachow 130 points131 points  (9 children)

Click very much seems like a re-telling of “It’s a Wonderful Life” and they have the same ending.

[–]ivandragonite 79 points80 points  (6 children)

I prefer the It’s a Wonderful Life’s killing spree ending.

[–]delvach 83 points84 points  (4 children)

The old SNL sketch ending version where everybody learns the old banker is ripping people off and the crowd lynches him.

[–]Yglorba 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I dunno what you mean - that's a much happier ending!

[–]goodonekid 229 points230 points  (15 children)

I actually went to see the movie in one of those pre-screening things where they get feedback before finishing the movie and this is actually what happened in the original ending. He wakes up and is with his family and everything is good and happy and seems like it was all a dream that he woke up from but he walks outside his house and realizes that he actually did die and is just now in heaven. It was pretty stupid and I think everyone in the theater wrote that they should change the ending. Then I went to see it when it came out and they actually did change the ending lol

[–]poland626 57 points58 points  (3 children)

What? You gotta give more! That's too interesting to not talk more about.

[–]albatrossG8 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Yeah! What his heaven like? How did the family grieve?

[–]Kibbysh 6305 points6306 points  (615 children)

Now I'm kind of dissapointed it wasn't.

[–]Tyler1492 2643 points2644 points  (573 children)

Maybe it's not that bad, though. Sometimes Black Mirror can be mood draining.

I mean, think about it. They have all that really fucking awesome technology which makes life so much easier and exciting, and they go and use it to horribly torture other people like it's no big deal.

[–]KRIEGLERR 1217 points1218 points  (445 children)

I started watching Black Mirror 2 years ago, I haven't watch a single episode since I finished the 2nd episode of the 1st season. Not because I didn't like it, I really did but it's just incredibly bleak and depressing to me.

[–]ruthfisher_ 1223 points1224 points  (317 children)

IMO hang the dj isn't bleak if you'd like to give that one a try.

[–]i_should_be_twerking 1179 points1180 points  (248 children)

Also San Junipero. It's sorta sad but the ending is nice

[–]carrots084 327 points328 points  (203 children)

San Junipero is the only episode i’ve watched

[–]WellThatsDecent 938 points939 points  (144 children)

You havnt experienced true black mirror emotional drainage yet then

[–]cjojojo 513 points514 points  (74 children)

White Christmas. That's always the one I introduce people to the show with.

[–]Lugalzagesi712 52 points53 points  (18 children)

that one messed with me more than any of the other episodes did, though haven't watched season 4 yet

[–]ImawhaleCR 33 points34 points  (11 children)

White bear really fucked me up for some reason.

[–]Blizz310 244 points245 points  (12 children)

White Christmas is sooooo fucking good. Ozymandias-levels of TV greatness.

[–]natenaterson 68 points69 points  (4 children)

I'm glad I'm not the only one that commonly rates television on the Ozymandias scale.

[–]king_27 154 points155 points  (62 children)

Black Museum...

[–]Jambdy 244 points245 points  (34 children)

Playtest is worse imo, black museum is kind of happy at the end.

[–]king_27 118 points119 points  (9 children)

Oh fuck yeah forgot about that one. The History of You also got me pretty hard, and the one with the android

[–]skylapotimus 37 points38 points  (0 children)

playtest was brutal man.

[–]80sbully 59 points60 points  (2 children)

Playtest hurts to watch

[–]Nic_Endo 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Black Museum is the happy version of White Christmas.

[–]Maybedatingapotato 53 points54 points  (2 children)

Oh god, I watched Playtest for a class last semester, and I literally called my mom when I was done with it

[–]grumpyt 29 points30 points  (5 children)

black museum is extremely grim, but i wouldn't say it's emotionally draining.

in fact, it's really vindicating - especially how it fits in to the meta narrative of the show. the antagonist is essentially the personification of the show and is righteously punished for his exploitative and voyeuristic bullshit.

really great palette cleanser and cap the season and the show in general.

[–]sonicqaz 51 points52 points  (0 children)

Hang the DJ is a spiritual successor

[–]darez00 36 points37 points  (7 children)

The thing with SJ is that the episode is either happy or sad depending where in the 'conscience = digital conscience' debate you stand.

[–]intripletime 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Spoilers for those who haven't seen it, but I honestly think either way is happy. If digital consciousness isn't a thing, they died peacefully. If it is, they live happily.

[–]commissary_lugnut 92 points93 points  (17 children)

lol it's pretty funny that the happiest ending in black mirror is one in which everyone dies at the end (and has their consciousness uploaded to the cloud)

[–]killeronthecorner 65 points66 points  (10 children)

Yeah, it is. People often cite San Junipero as being one of the more optimistic episodes but I found the whole concept terrifying.

[–]Moonface1690 36 points37 points  (5 children)

Yeah I showed it to my girlfriend to get Her into black. Mirror and her only comment at the was: 'oh that's awful'

Perhaps she's not cut out for black mirror.

[–]LeBronda_Rousey 30 points31 points  (0 children)

For the love of God, don't let her watch white Christmas.

[–]_PM_ME_DICKPICS_ 20 points21 points  (3 children)

The prime minister who fucked a pig on live TV went on to have a long career and the public respected him more for it.

[–]Nick357 31 points32 points  (4 children)

I got Hang the DJ confused with Crocodile and thought you had a very dark sense of humor.

[–]JustA_human 126 points127 points  (11 children)

I mean, think about it. They have all that really fucking awesome technology which makes life so much easier and exciting, and they go and use it to horribly torture other people like it's no big deal

Congratulations, you have described human civilization since the dawn of the agricultural revolution!

[–]Lightalife 55 points56 points  (0 children)

Sometimes Black Mirror can be mood draining.

Agreed. Had to stop watching it unless i'm really just in the mood for something like that, otherwise i can feel it bringing me down.

Still a great show.

[–]Just_A_Che_Away 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I think you're missing the entire point of the show

[–]coulditbe23 20 points21 points  (0 children)

It would've been an interesting ending, but it's still a pretty depressing movie throughout.

[–]fxcker 907 points908 points  (13 children)

Me and my dad went to see Click in theatres excited to see a raunchy Adam Sandler comedy and both left in tears. It was an odd and unexpected beautiful moment. What a wild ride that movie was..

[–]yeahyouknow25 311 points312 points  (10 children)

I saw this movie with a group of friends. I normally hold back my tears in front of others, but this movie...I have never ugly cried so bad in my life. I couldn't hold back those tears no matter how hard I tried. But of course everyone else was bad off too. It really was a beautiful film in a lot of ways, specifically emotionally - to get that gut reaction from so many people they definitely did something right.

[–]elle_zweig 61 points62 points  (4 children)

That's what happened to me with "Up." I thought it was a cute kids movie, and it was. But it was so very sad.

[–]Th3F1gment 65 points66 points  (3 children)

Pixar movies are dangerous. Watching Inside Out with my 10 year old daughter fucked me up good.

[–]soggit 813 points814 points  (81 children)

Anyone else think that click and big daddy are actually both legitimately good movies and wonder why Adam Sandler hasn’t spent more effort in these sorts of roles or even going more serious? I think he has it in him but he “wastes it” (maybe it’s not a waste if he’s having fun and making money?) on immature comedies

Kind of reminds me of seeing Jim Carey in Truman, the majestic, and eternal sunshine.

Edit: eternal sunshine could also totally be a black mirror episode

[–]low_kix 270 points271 points  (35 children)

Dude had an amazing career. He's made millions by making movies with his buddies, and has a blast doing it. He still collaborates with people to make "legitimately good" movies, as you put it, like Funny People or Spanglish.

[–]TrumpImpeachedAugust 108 points109 points  (32 children)

"Still" collaborates?

Funny People came out 9 years ago in 2009. Spanglish came out 14 years ago in 2004.

[–]Kodlaken 74 points75 points  (27 children)

He was in the quite new movie The Meyerowitz Stories, has some good guys like Ben Stiller and Dustin Hoffman in it too. He gave an amazing performance in his role in the movie, some pretty good emotional moments.

[–]Browns-78 144 points145 points  (7 children)

There are a good amount of movies that were legitimately good movies he was in, like 50 First Dates. But I think the audience demanded more comedy from him and he had to deliver, making him a lower class actor and now all he can get is lower Class movies.

[–]LarsHoneytoast44 117 points118 points  (3 children)

He doesnt really "get" movies. He produces his own with his buds. I think he just enjoys having his friends around on set and having a few laughs.

[–]AS14K 114 points115 points  (2 children)

That doesn't mean he doesn't 'get' them, it just means he'd rather make $50M for goofin around in a tropical paradise than working hard telling an emotional story in Pittsburgh for $5M. That ain't stupid

[–]GoEagles247 207 points208 points  (10 children)

Funny People, Spanglish, Wedding Singer, Punch Drunk Love, and Happy Gilmore are legit good

Big Daddy, 50 First Dates, and Waterboy are lesser but still very enjoyable imo

He gets a lot of deserved hate for his more recent shit, but he made solid movies for about a decade after his SNL career

[–]SexyBlueTiger 28 points29 points  (0 children)

If you haven't watched "The Meyerowitz Stories" on Netflix. You should.

[–]PlzDontBeMe 2209 points2210 points  (133 children)

His wife in that movie played a major part of my sexual awakening.

Edit: That tight... rockin body

[–]x_Saturn 964 points965 points  (87 children)

Kate Beckinsale did look particularly amazing in that movie.

[–]MistaSmiles 203 points204 points  (0 children)

Do you know that episode of Seinfield where George pretended he broke up with a model, so that other pretty woman would think he was dateable? Thats my take on Adam Sandlers on screen wives

[–]captainbignips 175 points176 points  (38 children)

and this was her fella for about 8 years

[–]Someshitidontknow 159 points160 points  (14 children)

Wesley Snipes!

[–]Wayne_Regretski 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I love when that character points out that if you put the two of them side by side he looks far more likely to have a name like wesley snipes.

Gang way for foot cycle.

[–]Muh_Condishuns 53 points54 points  (6 children)

A much shorter, whiter vampire but still a vampire, m'yeh know...

They remind me of the chick from Mad Men dating the guy who ate the bag of mushrooms and pot in Super Troopers. Like, if Scientology didn't arrange that hookup, good for him i guess. He must be really funny. In bed.

[–]daimposter 15 points16 points  (0 children)

A much shorter, whiter vampire but still a vampire, m'yeh know...

His name is Wesley Snipes in 30 Rock. Did they give him that name because of the vampire connection?

[–]dick-hippo 34 points35 points  (3 children)

Holy shit, the guy from underworld. Now I gotta rewatch those movies

[–]Dymarob 35 points36 points  (1 child)

To think that there was a moment in the movie where he DOESN'T want to have sex with her.

[–]uberpwnage64 109 points110 points  (21 children)

Wait, that was the same lady from Underworld? Holy shit.

[–]A_Flamboyant_Warlock 77 points78 points  (8 children)

Yeah, also Van Helsing.

She's also the voice of Queen Ayren in The Elder Scrolls Online, which makes the whole game just a little bit better.

[–]Limitedcomments 53 points54 points  (3 children)

My god those latex pants woke something dark in me.

Don't have to brag about your BBC

[–]Tyler1492 36 points37 points  (10 children)

She's over 40 too. I couldn't believe it when I found out.

[–]Daveed84 50 points51 points  (9 children)

I mean, she was ~32 during filming

[–]Tyler1492 36 points37 points  (8 children)

But now she's in her 40s and barely looks 32.

[–]I_Xertz_Tittynopes 65 points66 points  (5 children)

[–]GoEagles247 55 points56 points  (0 children)

This is REALLY photoshopped

But yea I saw her in something last year and she still looks ridiculously good

[–]Vigilantx3 13 points14 points  (1 child)

She’s a pretty good actress as well, one of my favorite movies of all time is Brokedown Palace.

[–]WildWellington 85 points86 points  (16 children)

And gave you a fetish for Japanese time control porn.

[–]longsleevedsloth[S] 86 points87 points  (0 children)

Sandler’s sex moves were mine..

[–]TheGeralt85 71 points72 points  (2 children)

Those bouncing jugs in slow mo changed me.

[–]Bozzz1 66 points67 points  (1 child)

I remember watching this movie and rewinding this scene over and over again: https://youtu.be/0JuFYIEEdfY

That was the day I learned I like boobies.

[–]KrlosPR 48 points49 points  (5 children)

that is where i became a fan, like wow with Kate Beckinsale. She does look amazing in that movie.

[–]Team_Muff_N_Stuff 518 points519 points  (19 children)

Damn, that would be a good fucking episode.

[–]Readvoter 238 points239 points  (7 children)

Weirdly enough it might work better as an Adam Sandler movie, because no one expects such a dark twist. With Black Mirror you instantly would know that it would fuck him over.

[–]andrewharlan2 27 points28 points  (0 children)

The darkness makes the happy episodes that much more rewarding

[–]Tyler1492 165 points166 points  (7 children)

[Sensual voice] Black Mirror, nobody does it better... [kiss sound]

[–]KRIEGLERR 82 points83 points  (4 children)

Naughty America. Nobody, nobody, nobody does it better.
How did you even came up with this comment though ? How is that related to the OP comment lmao ?

[–]ramsker 64 points65 points  (9 children)

Still don't know why he didn't just hit PAUSE and do all his work. That would make way too much sense.

[–]AllisonTheDestroyer 39 points40 points  (1 child)

I got so pissed watching this movie, he used the remote in the stupidest possible way

[–]Thewalrus515 289 points290 points  (40 children)

Or a twilight zone episode

[–]LoneRangersBand 513 points514 points  (27 children)

That would be a perfect Twilight Zone ending, just him dying in the rain as the camera pans away, as we hear Rod Serling's narration:

"Time marches forward, a lesson learned too late by one Michael Newman. Every moment needs to be one enjoyed with great detail, moments that cannot be skipped or left behind with the tool of an electronic magic wand. And like any magic wand, it made things disappear... into the Twilight Zone."

[–]bslaw 145 points146 points  (1 child)

Well you managed to capture Rod Serling perfectly.

[–]wouaw 61 points62 points  (16 children)

I didn’t even watched a twilight zone episode and I thought that was cool

[–]ugthiago 21 points22 points  (14 children)

Maybe you should watch, i recommend the episodes Time enough at last and the hitch-hiker as great episodes to introduce you to what Twilight Zone is about.

[–]FacetiousSquid 62 points63 points  (3 children)

Well there's a Goosebumps episode named "Click" with the exact same concept, and it actually does have super dark ending, even for a kid's show. I'm pretty sure it's on Netflix.

[–]loopdydoopdy 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I'm pretty sure that's what the movie was inspired by

[–]HYThrowaway1980 625 points626 points  (6 children)

Click changed my life.

That movie scared the bejeezus out of me when I watched it in my mid twenties. I’d just come out of a depression that had derailed my life (dropped out of a maths degree at Oxford University, isolated myself from most of my friends, put on 50% of my body weight in 18 months), and I was settling into a pattern which, while not destructive, wasn’t pushing me forward.

I was coasting, and Click put the fear of fucking God into me.

A couple of years later I mustered up the courage to quit the temping/casual filmmaking I had been pursuing, and began a five-year slog to upgrade my employability from school leaver with no specific area of expertise or experience to becoming a chartered accountant. I am now happily married, in a job I love, and my future looks pretty rosy.

Looking back, when I saw the film over a decade ago, it was a huge turning point for me.

I never thought I would say this, but Adam Sandler inspired me to change my life.

[–]Lizardizzle 106 points107 points  (0 children)

It's weird the kind of things that can really give you a huge push you need, and I'm glad you did.

[–][deleted] 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Yeah, any time I have a chance to hang out with my dad and don’t feel like it, I always think back to that scene from Click where his dad starts crying as he leaves a son who always ignores him. Makes me appreciate my dad so much more.

[–]Harald12 119 points120 points  (0 children)

i never really thought it was possible to be repulsed by a movie and then cry leaving the theater until i saw click

[–]MissingLink101 76 points77 points  (3 children)

I like the fact a Spoiler flair has been used yet the spoiler is in the title

[–]Dymarob 72 points73 points  (7 children)

My brother saw a version online that had the ending removed, and he genuinely thought that Sandler dying was how it ended for a long time until we saw it on TV.

I had already seen the movie, so when he was talking about Sandler dying at the end, I thought he was trying to trick our mom, so I was playing along with the "Yep. Totally! He dies."

When it got to the real ending on the TV, I was like "Ah, we tricked you!" and he was all "Wait, WHAT!?"

I thought we were tricking my Mom, but I ended up tricking him. He must have been so confused, especially since I was agreeing with him at first.

[–]smallpoly 54 points55 points  (1 child)

Ironic, he could trick himself but not others.

[–]Scall123 15 points16 points  (0 children)

It’s not a story your brother would tell you.

[–]Tudpool 31 points32 points  (7 children)

Man if he'd just had the sense after the first go around to not use the fast forward function he could have had a very easy life. Like leave the subtitles on so he can understand what everybody is saying. Then you're done and you just carry on your life with a nice little bonus.

[–]jenzett 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Yeah and if everyone in life would just focus all the time instead of distracting themselves to pass time... Everyone would be better off.

But that is the gist of the movie, we program ourselves into toxic routines because it is so damn convenient.

[–]OigoAlgo 57 points58 points  (1 child)

It’s funny, Sandler gets a lot of death-threat level shit even though there are much much worse actor-comedians out there who you never hear a peep about, but I think he’s an alright dude. I really liked him in this. And Reign Over Me was incredible. Maybe he should’ve focused on serious, dark roles.

[–]WHYDIDYOUDELETESYS32 114 points115 points  (5 children)

Oh wow, spoiler tag and the spoiler is in the title

[–]lurking_digger 72 points73 points  (0 children)

Give them time, they may improve it

[–]blondeballerina 46 points47 points  (1 child)

Honestly this is probably the movie that makes me cry the most.

[–]Wppf 78 points79 points  (2 children)

That spoiler tag is super useless.

[–]Calvin_Ayres 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Spoiler for the movie "The Mist." I think it had one of the best most fucked up endings. There's 4 bullets and 5 people left, and they decide to commit suicide before the monsters get them. They hear them coming so the Male shoots them so they don't have to suffer, and he'll get eaten alone. Then right when you think the monster comes it's actually a tank and the Army here to save the day. The guy goes into a mental breakdown and the credits roll. Fucked up, but so is life man.

[–][deleted] 302 points303 points  (127 children)

The occurrences of Black Mirror still contain technological plausibility that they could happen.

Click contains an aspect of magic and fantasy. Controlling the space time continuum is far beyond technology.

Perhaps another Black Mirror series that deals with more fantastical issues such as that?

[–]alexjbarnett 53 points54 points  (4 children)

Maybe another episode using the "Cookie" brain implant which you can use to make time seem faster or skip it by making your brain forget the time passing... E.g. skip a day at work or skip to a movie release you are looking forward to. The cookie intelligently learns your use habits and keeps skipping work etc until suddenly, you've skipped your whole life.

Pretty much the concept of click, but more on the tech side than magic.

[–]TripToOuterSpace 186 points187 points  (47 children)

Thats my favorite thing about Black Mirror is its “realism” or plausibility I should say. The idea that this technology isn’t real yet but very well could be makes it enticing to watch and really makes you wonder...

[–]TedFartass 108 points109 points  (19 children)

One of the most prevalent cases is in Shut Up and Dance because there's really nothing futuristic about the episode.

[–]Thebackup30 48 points49 points  (5 children)

Also the pilot episode (the one with the prime minister and the pig).

[–]IronTarkus91 41 points42 points  (2 children)

I actually really loved that episode. It was twisted and I know a lot of people didn't like it but I liked seeing how everyone was in the pub expecting it to be this hilarious thing but by the end they were all horrified for him.

[–]axisrahl85 22 points23 points  (1 child)

I thought it was interesting because some people thought it was funny and some people thought it was disgusting, but EVERYBODY was watching,

[–]TheWatersOfMars 63 points64 points  (21 children)

I'm a little more critical of Black Mirror's realism, personally. Not to spoil the Callister episode (S4E1), but the central "gizmo" makes absolutely no sense. It might as well be magic, and if it's supposed to be "realistic", then it's just BS.

Of course, I don't actually have a problem with that. I'm OK with sci-fi injecting a bit of handwavy magic in there. But Black Mirror has kind of constrained itself with the pretense of "realism", when some of its best episodes are amazing because they're totally not realistic.

[–]DarthHypnotoad 37 points38 points  (8 children)

Spoilers ahead:

I agree with you completely. I loved that episode and really enjoyed it, but scanning someone's DNA into code wouldn't give them all of their personality traits too, unless the program scanned their online profiles or something?
