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.

Did You Know?


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 »

User Reviews

It's not a comedy.
9 May 2020 | by Kdosda_HegenSee all my reviews

This movie plays like a comedy, does some crappy jokes, which takes this movie down a bit from what it really is - a great drama. It has amazing character development it shows us why family is important. It's a great drama for whole family.
