Storyline

Michael Newman (Sandler) is a hard working family man, who must please his boss (Hasselhoff), in order to get promoted. Problem is he gets less time with his family, and wishes for a remote in which he can control his life. This soon comes true for Newman, when he meets Morty (Walken), a crazy sales clerk, who has the ultimate remote. A remote in which he can do anything, including muting, skipping and dubbing his life. He finds this to be the opportunity in which he can not only skip every argument, but also skip to his promotion. He sees this as a good idea, until the remote goes horribly wrong.

Trivia

When Michael presses the menu button on the remote, you see a flashback of his life and various theme songs from TV and gameshows play in the background, including Match Game 73 (1973), S.W.A.T. (1975), The (New) $25,000 Pyramid (1973), The Benny Hill Show (1969), The Price Is Right (1972), Wheel of Fortune (1983), and Win, Lose or Draw (1987). See more »

Goofs

The interior layout of the house does not match the outside - The outside shows a 1 story house that is flat along the front, and that garage on the right side. But inside there is a staircase, and the front entry sticks out further than the rest (so it could not be a flat front house) and in the beginning when Michael is leaving to look for a universal remote, he goes to the garage, but goes on the other end of the house than what is shown outside.

Quotes

Ammer: Michael, our clients are Japanese. They can't wait for their fish to cook.

Adam Sandler's best movie
23 June 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Click is by far Adam Sandler's best movie.. and that ISN'T a cheap shot at his previous films.

Sandler has done a ton of comedy movies with terrible jokes and corny plots, and until Anger Management really he didn't have much to his characters other than his goofiness.

He reminds me of Jim Carey before The Truman Show - just comedy, no substance.

The trailers for Click feature some of the comedic scenes of the movie, but don't worry there are a ton more that aren't spoiled. That being said, this movie isn't all that the trailers portray it to be.

If you're going to see Click solely for a good laugh, you'll love the first 45 minutes and hate the rest of it. The script takes a swerve closer to the end and, unlike any of Sandler's previous movies, the "down" part of the movie (where the main character goes through rough times) is actually very well done. Click goes from being a comedy to a drama - just for a little while.

The dramatic portion of the movie allows Sandler to act as a regular human being; a man who faces the real life consequences of putting his work ahead of his family. It's something a lot of people can relate to, and all of the characters in the movie contribute to the storyline very well.

Click provides great comedy and Sandler's best dramatic performance in a movie. It's clean enough for the kids (okay, the early teenagers), a good laugh with the guys or girls, and turns out to be a surprisingly good date movie.
