Henry Roth is a man afraid of commitment up until he meets the beautiful Lucy. They hit it off and Henry think he's finally found the girl of his dreams, until he discovers she has short-term memory loss and forgets him the next day.
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.Written by

This movie is dedicated to my mom and dad, and to all our parents who never thought twice about putting their family first. And to my wife and daughter, thanks for making it so easy for me to do the same. See more »
Hits the right emotional buttons, but misses on humor
Click hits the right emotional buttons, but unfortunately those poignant moments are undercut by persistent juvenile humor. It's just hard to take this movie seriously when it's trying to be serious. I have no complaints about Kate Beckinsale in this movie, though. She did a great job, as always.
