Overview

A workaholic architect, frustrated in his job but determined to make a better life for his family, is bestowed with a powerful universal remote that allows him more control over his life than he ever knew possible in director Frank Coraci's high-concept fantasy comedy. On the surface, Michael Newman (Adam Sandler) seems to have it all, yet with all the demands forced upon him by his ungrateful boss (David Hasselhoff), Michael finds that setting aside time to spend with his loving wife, Donna (Kate Beckinsale), and two picture-perfect children, Ben (Joseph Castanon) and Samantha (Tatum McCann), has grown increasingly difficult. When a frustrating bout with the television remote leads the overworked husband and father to a nearby Bed, Bath & Beyond in search of a universal remote with the power to control all of his electronic devices, a curious peek into the back room leads Michael into the company of eccentric employee and talented inventor Morty (Christopher Walken). It seems that Morty has created a device that will not only allow Michael complete control over his television and stereo, but his entire life as well. As Michael discovers that the remarkable device has the power to muffle the barks of the family dog, zoom himself past an irritating quarrel with his wife, and even allow him to travel back and forth through time to different points in his life, the rush of being able to skip straight to the good parts in life soon leaves him feeling as if he's missing out on the total experience. Only when Michael begins to realize that the he has lost control of his life and the remote is now programming him does he finally learn that life is as much about the moments he'd rather forget as it is the moments he will always remember.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
It's always refreshing to see Adam Sandler in a role that doesn't force him to act childish or imbecilic to get laughs. The generally imaginative Click actually gives Sandler a character with which we can both identify and empathize. Sandler portrays perpetually harried architect Michael Newman, who works tirelessly to provide for his loving wife, Donna (Kate Beckinsale), and children (Joseph Castanon and Tatum McCann) but as a result spends far less time with them than he should. Stumbling onto a mysterious white-coated technician (Christopher Walken), Michael receives an "all-purpose" remote control that allows him to adjust every aspect of his life. One click of the "mute" button silences his barking dog, while punching "fast forward" enables him to speed through traffic jams, interminable projects, and even domestic arguments. But eventually the remote control begins running Michael, rather than vice versa, producing unwelcome results. Given an uncharacteristically meaty role, Sandler steps up to the plate, balanced by effective supporting turns by Beckinsale, David Hasselhoff, and Henry Winkler. For all the fans who adore Sandler, there seem to be an equal number of viewers that find him less appealing. Viewers in the latter group are encouraged to give Click a shot: You won’t find yourself reaching for the remote control.
All Movie Guide
Since Adam Sandler had been coasting on a wave of schlock for several years, it was tempting to dismiss Click as just the latest instance of his man-child gimmickry. And there's definitely a bunch of Happy Madison shtick -- Rob Schneider as a Middle Eastern prince? -- to sift through before getting to the film's heart. But once you're there, it's hard to deny that it can be intelligent, even affecting. Click will never be confused for the 21st century's answer to It's a Wonderful Life, as it clearly wants to be. But the fact that it even toys with sincere self-examination makes it more mature than most Sandler flicks. However a viewer feels about the film's middle-ground "stop and smell the roses" message, director Frank Coraci and company earn points for execution. The high-concept ability to pause, rewind, and mute real life has taken surprisingly long to reach the big screen, and Click is a satisfying realization of that gestation period -- even when it's as predictable as Sandler watching a big-breasted woman jog in slow motion. Fully a comedic performer in this late stage of his career, Christopher Walken has wacko fun as the electrocution-haired inventor of the remote, while David Hasselhoff and Henry Winkler are hammy and heartbreaking, respectively. Almost forgotten, though doing a better job than she probably needed to, is Kate Beckinsale as the wife Sandler's Michael Newman would never deserve. Perhaps what's most surprising about this Sandler film is that Sandler himself isn't an essential ingredient. He does a decent job, but the ambitious script by Steve Koren and Mark O'Keefe -- the team responsible for the similar Bruce Almighty -- does not require a performer like Sandler. If the ways Click diverges from Sandler's typical projects can get viewers past their prejudices, they may be surprised at how they're rewarded.

Click is not a good movie for families. It includes many scenes of a dog humping a stuffed duck and a few scenes of sexual content. The only part of this movie that made me happy was the end. If you have twenty dollars to spend on a movie don't do it on CLICK.

The very emotional and touching climax and the resolution afterwards would really make you love the movie. And, besides Big Daddy, i would say this is one of the best movies that Adam Sandler starred in.

This movie has a great message which is totally relevant in today's society... family first. I feel the effects every single day of having to be a full-time working mom who would sometimes love to just say the heck with it and go spend time with my son, but the reality of having to eat and pay the bills usually takes over. I wish all corporate moguls could be forced to watch this movie to see what they are doing to the American family. But, beyond the terrific message, I have one question about this movie: how many jokes/references do we need to women's chest size??? Is this junior high or what? There was way too much sexist use of women in this movie for my taste. Even Kate Beckinsale's character (wife of the main character) was not given much "meat" to her role - she basically just catered to Sandler's character and had no personality. And, how many skimpy outfits can one woman have? OK, we get the idea, she's hot... she's every man's dream wife... who cares??? The bimbos at Sandler's character's workplace, while a tongue-in-cheek aspect of the movie, were annoying as well... NONE of the women in this movie had anything to really add other than looking good. I just thought the use of women as basically attractive props was pathetic. Now, one of Sandler's other movies, 50 First Dates, was a terrific movie... I expected this movie to be more like that and was extremely disappointed in all aspects of it other than the main message it conveyed.

This movie really gives you a new aspect on life. It's a wonderful, wonderful movie. It's a great dramedy and in any case, Adam Sandler's best movie ever.

Click has a storyline that I think we have all thought about - very clever. But Adam Sandler's performance wasn't funny and it seemed mediocre at times. The funniest part of the movie was the man singing Loverboy's "Working for the Weekend" in his car next to Adam Sandler. Kate Beckinsale is extremely gorgeous, and it seemed very unlikely that her character would find Adam Sandler's character attractive at all.

Click is a great movie, but if you are emotional, you may not want to watch it. the first time i watched it i cried. and trust me, I'm not a crier. the whole story was really good and sends a really good message out to everyone that you will have to figure out by watching Click!

Wow! Who knew Adam Sandler would make another flop. This movie was billed as a comedy, but it's a drama. The same joke "dog vs stuffed animal love" plays over and over like a bad dream throughout the entire movie. Same old "bathroom humor". The only redeeming part of the entire movie was Christopher Walken's performance. A truly overlooked talent.
