Henry Roth is a man afraid of commitment up until he meets the beautiful Lucy. They hit it off and Henry think he's finally found the girl of his dreams, until he discovers she has short-term memory loss and forgets him the next day.
After moving his family back to his hometown to be with his friends and their kids, Lenny finds out that between old bullies, new bullies, schizo bus drivers, drunk cops on skis, and four hundred costumed party crashers sometimes crazy follows you.
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.Written by
In 1995, R.L. Stine wrote a very similar story in his "Tales To Give You Goosebumps", with almost the same plot and set-up, even down to the title, "Click". Scholastic, Inc. almost sued Adam Sandler and this film's producers for plagiarism. Both parties agreed the entire situation was a coincidence, so no legal action was ever taken. Both stories could easily be based on the old French tale "The Magic Thread", in which a boy is able to pull a thread to speed up the parts of his life he doesn't like. He quickly finds himself an old man before being given a second chance. See more »
Ben and Samantha are two years apart. The end credits depict three actors for both Ben and Samantha at different ages. At the start of the movie, Ben is 7 and Samantha is 5. Then, after the one-year jump, Ben is 8 and Samantha is 6. Then ten more years pass, Ben is 18 (the credits say he's 17) and Samantha is 16 (the credits say she's 14). Then a six-year jump, Ben is 24 and Samantha is 22 (the credits say she's 27). Going by the credits, Samantha is suddenly older than Ben. See more »

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.
