Storyline Heading
Michael Newman, a busy architect who is trying to get ahead in the world, purchases a remote control that seems to not only let him control his TV set and stereo, but virtually his entire life. Sounds too good to be true. And it is, because soon the technologically sophisticated device is controlling Michael in ways he never imagined possible.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama - Although this does have the crude and silly humor Adam Sandler fans have come to expect from him, the film also turns quite serious in its last third, which will throw fans or a loop. Otherwise though this film is exactly what is advertised. Some raunchy humor make the film inappropriate for the young kids.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Click is flawed but, on balance, it works. It accomplishes what it sets out to do: tell an occasionally amusing, occasionally affecting drama about how adults often lose sight of what matters.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average The movie is being sold as a comedy, but you know what? This isn't funny.

USA Today Full Review
Average Despite its ultra-formulaic premise and juvenile sense of humor, there are a few laughs, and the movie's heart is generally in the right place,...

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Michael Newman (Adam Sandler) is married to the beautiful Donna (Kate Beckinsale) and they have two terrific kids, Ben (Joseph Castanon) and Samantha (Tatum McCann). But he doesn't get to see them much because he's putting in long, hard hours at his architectural firm in the elusive hope that his ungrateful boss (David Hasselhoff) will one day recognize his invaluable contribution and make him a partner.

Once he's on easy street, he'll be able to lavish attention on the wife and kiddies. At least, that's what he tells himself.

After staying up all night to work, a tired Michael becomes frustrated because he can't even figure out which of his remotes will turn on the TV set. Michael sets out to find the perfect device to operate all his electronic equipment and stumbles into the back room of a Bed, Bath & Beyond, where an eccentric employee, Morty (Christopher Walken), gives him an experimental one-of-a-kind souped-up gadget guaranteed to change his life.

Morty wasn't kidding either. Soon Michael is master of his domain, turning on every appliance with the click of a button.

But the device has other, more startling functions. It can somehow muffle the barking of Sundance, the family dog — and even more astoundingly, fast forward through an annoying quarrel with his wife.

Michael is fascinated by his new toy and a little freaked out as well. He decides to pay another visit to Morty, the guy who sold him the mysterious device. Morty tells Michael he gave him exactly what he asked for — a universal remote that lets him control his universe. Right before Michael's astonished eyes, Morty demonstrates the device's mind-boggling advanced features, including a function that lets Michael travel back and forth through his life at different speeds. Michael quickly becomes addicted to this new rush of power, which literally allows him to have his cake and eat it too.

But before he knows it, the remote is programming him, rather than the other way around. And try as he might, a panicked Michael can't stop the device from deciding which events of his life he'll experience and which ones he'll miss. Only then does he begin to truly appreciate and embrace his life — the good, the bad and the ugly.
