Very good. Adam Sandler is a great comedic actor. Felt a little uncomfortable at the end.

Morty: "Think about it, you've skipped a year. That's a lot
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 07/01/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Adam Sandler has been in some superb movies in recent years. PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE (2002) began the trend; his performance in REIGN OVER ME (2007) is in a word: amazing. Just slightly below these in quality are FUNNY PEOPLE (2009) and CLICK.
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's he 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.
