Click (2006) Poster



Jump to: Cameo (1) | Director Cameo (1) | Spoilers (3)
The coin trick that Henry Winkler does in the movie is something the actor does in real life. During public appearances, Winkler will often do the trick for children.
As of 2010, this is Adam Sandler's highest-grossing film at the international box office.
As an in-joke, the names of some of the crew members are visible on a few headstones at the graveyard scene near the end of the film.
The little girl at the lakeside during young Michael's flashback is Kate Beckinsale's daughter, Lily Mo Sheen.
Christopher Walken dances in the film, which is a trademark of his.
The neighbors in the film are named the O'Doyles, which is also the name of the family of bullies who always say "O'Doyle Rules" in Adam Sandler's earlier film Billy Madison (1995).
Michael passes on a favor from Mr. Ammer, to which Mr. Ammer replies, "I'll put Swardson on it." Nick Swardson is a friend of Adam Sandler, appearing on Sandler's most recent comedy album "Shh... Don't Tell" (2004). Swardson is also the Bed, Bath & Beyond Guy who asks Michael to be his friend.
In the "first kiss flashback," Jennifer Coolidge's character is seen wearing a shirt of The Simpsons. Julie Kavner, who played Trudy Newman/Michael's mom in this film, provides the voice for Marge Simpson on The Simpsons (1989).
The futuristic car that Michael Newman drives to his house when he first realizes he is CEO of the Company is the Cadillac Sixteen, a concept car that was unveiled in 2003.
In the DVD Audio commentary, director Frank Coraci states that the scene set in the past where Adam Sandler and Kate Beckinsale's characters kiss for the first time was deliberately over light to look like a late 80s/early 90s film.
In the lake scene, Adam Sandler's character reminisces his childhood at Lake Winnipesaukee. Winnipesaukee is approximately fifty miles north of Manchester, New Hampshire; where Sandler grew up.
Lauren Graham and Drew Barrymore turned down the part of Donna Newman.
Several future world events are mentioned by radio in the film as Michael fastforwards through his life. Two of these include Michael Jackson becoming the first human being to clone himself and Britney Spears having her twenty-third baby; the dates the film is set in the future span from 2017 to 2030.
The film's premise was originated from a joke by writer Steve Koren. It was not until co-writer Mark O'Keefe's girlfriend's suggestion of turning it into a feature that the project got started off the ground.
Eric Lamansoff is mentioned in this film. "Eric Lamansoff" is also the name of Kevin James' character in Grown Ups (2010) and Grown Ups 2, where Adam Sandler also starred in.
Michael Newman's (Adam Sandler) home, where he sees himself in the future, is the same building used as Mel's (Jon Lovitz) home in The Benchwarmers (2006).
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 $10,000 Pyramid (1973), The Benny Hill Show (1969), The Price Is Right (1972), Wheel of Fortune (1983), and Win, Lose or Draw (1987).
Alan Silvestri was attached as the film's composer, but he left the project in late March 2006 due to "creative differences".
When Michael visits Ben's office, the water that Ben gives Michael is VOSS sparkling artesian water from Norway. Yet another reference to his other movies. Voss is the brand of water Sandler's spoiled kids drank in Grown Ups (2010).
Kate Spade's brand is mentioned twice in the movie. Kate Spade is also the sister-in-law of David Spade, who also features in many of Adam Sandler's movies.

The plot is similar to an episode of R.L. Stine's Goosebumps (1995-1998) season 3, episode 5 titled "Click", in which a child orders a remote that controls not just the tv, but the world around him. Not unlike Sandler's version of the story, the remote proves to be addictive and have dire consequences.

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

Adam Sandler and this film's producers were almost sued for plagiarism by Scholastic, Inc. when its plot was revealed and all too familiar. In 1995, eleven years prior to this film, the popular author R.L. Stine wrote a very similar story in his "Tales To Give You Goosebumps," with almost the exact same plot and set-up as this film, even down to both being titled "Click." No legal action was ever taken as both agreed to the entire situation being a coincidence. The irony is that both Click (2006) and Stine's story can easily be based on the old French tale "The Magic Thread," where a boy is able to pull a thread to speed up the parts of his life he does not like and quickly finds himself an old man before being given a second chance.
Christopher Walken's character, Morty, is revealed to be the angel of death. Mortis is the Latin word for death and is the basis for such words as mortician, rigor mortis, mortality, etc.
At Ben's wedding in the future, the Freedom Tower can be seen in the New York City skyline (except there are two towers) where the World Trade Center once stood.
