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.

The plot is similar to an episode of R.L. Stine's Goosebumps (1995) season three, episode five, "Click", in which a child orders a remote that controls not just the television, but the world around him.
