    Don't put yourself through this hell.
  2. Stoner jokes, awful gags, and just stupid stuff equate to one bad movie.
  3. Full of kerplunkingly unfunny jokes and ex-"Saturday Night Live" cast members turning up to do shtick.
  4. 20
    Where's Sandler in all this? Lost in gimmicks that smack of desperation. Damn it.
  5. How much you enjoy this movie depends on how funny you find Sandler talking out the side of his mouth with a gravelly squawk -- for the entire movie.

    Sandler deserves to be damned to the pits of hell for this witless masturbatory comedy.

    Disgusting and humorless mess.
  8. 10
    Adam Sandler displays no virtuosity and stirs no pathos in this special-effects comedy.
  9. Bad actors, bad music and bad plot make it a hellish bummer.
  10. Little Nicky will redefine the phrase "worst movie ever," because it might actually be the worst movie ever.

    Like The Waterboy just two years earlier, Sandler creates one of the most annoying characters in comedy history! This time it's a demon from hell. Sandler... you can do better. Full Review »

    Absolutely crazy and absurd, but that is what makes it so funny. Has all of Sandler's regular casting actors, and some great additions popping up everywhere on the screen. Full Review »

    It's movie hell, in more ways than one.
