A harried workaholic, Michael Newman (Adam Sandler) doesn't have time for his wife (Kate Beckinsale) and children, not if he's to impress his ungrateful boss and earn a well-deserved promotion. So when he meets Morty (Christopher Walken), a loopy sales clerk, he gets the answer to his prayers: a magical remote that allows him to bypass life's little distractions with increasingly hysterical results. But as Michael gleefully mutes, skips and scans past his family and his friends, the remote gradually takes over his life and begins to program him, in this fast, funny and out-of-control comedy adventure.
Click is a high-concept, low-brow variation on It's a Wonderful Life that will have Adam Sandler fans laughing even as it leaves Frank Capra spinning in his grave. In their third collaboration (after The Wedding Singer and The Waterboy, Sandler and director Frank Coraci aim at the lowest common denominator and consistently hit their target, from scary casting (David Hasselhoff as Sandler's shallow, sexist boss; Sean Astin in a tight red Speedo) to a rancid menu of fart jokes, fat jokes, oversexed dogs, and other attempts at humor that rarely rise above the level of grade-school pranks. Sandler's "family comes first" sentiment somehow manages to survive the onslaught of rude, crude attitude that Sandler brings to his role as Michael Newman, a workaholic architect who learns the hard way that, well, family comes first. This happens after Newman gets a magical remote control from Morty (Christopher Walken, the film's one and only highlight), an eccentric oddball in the "Beyond" section of a Bed, Bath & Beyond store who's a devilish version of Wonderful Life's benevolent guardian angel. But Sandler's no James Stewart as he uses his techno-marvel (complete with a DVD-like "life menu") to fast-forward through his life's most unpleasant moments, only to realize that he's been missing lots of good stuff, too. With Kate Beckinsale as Newman's neglected wife, impressive older-age make-ups by Rick Baker and a lot of digital wizardry to beef up the humor, Click won't disappoint Sandler's established fan base, and its $40 million opening weekend offered ample proof that Sandler's box-office clout remains remarkably consistent. --Jeff Shannon

Of course it turns into a 'careful what you wish for' scenario and he learns a valuable life lesson. It's got its funny moments. David Hassellhoff as Sandler's overbearing boss is funny, but you can tell this is when things started to turn and Sandler began not trying as hard and the whole manchild schtick was starting to get old. Christopher Walken deserves a special shout out as his particular weird charm is in effect here as an oddball inventor, but the man can liven up just about anything.
Again, not as funny as Anger Management, but it's not a bad comedy by any street. Three stars.
This is a modern entry in a genre that was quite popular in the 1930s-40s, the angel/devil/spirit fantasy. Here, Sandler (as Michael Newman) is given a universal remote from an eccentric salesman named Morty (Walken). The device allows Michael to replay his past or fast forward over unpleasant moments in his daily life. What he's not aware of is that in doing so one time, the remote automatically skips any similar events. Michael can't stop this from occurring. His life races by as a result and he never experiences more than disjointed episodes of it. (A later consultation with Morty reveals who he really is but doesn't resolve the remote control issue.)
Sandler and the other main cast members do a fine job (watch for a riotous Rob Schneider cameo as Prince Habeeboo). The only flaw perhaps is an ending copout. The story very easily could've concluded darkly and actually had until a dreaded deus ex machina was pulled out of the cobwebbed cliché bag for your happily-ever-after ta da. A minor complaint however. Recommended.
