Critic Reviews

  1. It's a clever idea bogged down in sophomoric sloppiness. Sitting through it doesn't feel like eternal damnation, but it's not exactly heaven, either. It's a $9.50 tour of adolescent purgatory.
  2. The kindest thing that can be said about Sandler's sense of humor is that it's unapologetically juvenile.
  3. 60
    Certainly Sandler's most ambitious work. It's not just a bid for respectability but a genuine allegory.
  4. Little Nicky will please Sandler's fans and likely won't win any converts.
  5. Little Nicky is but a meek gross-out cousin of "The Waterboy."

    Sandler repeats his sweet-souled doofus routine, with nerdy Patricia Arquette as the object of his affections.
  7. A feast of bad taste, a demonic hog-wallow.
  8. Adam Sandler finally has a good excuse: The devil made him do it.

    Hell itself is going to hell in Sandler's new comedy.
  10. 42
    Though it's debatable whether Sandler is squandered or just supremely annoying here, the film's flaws aren't entirely his fault.
  11. Diehard Sandler fans will probably find it uproarious, but others will have to make do with the occasional chuckle.

    This movie is funny as hell. Adam Sandler does what he does best which is comedy. I thought this was funnier than any other critic suspected.This movie is funny as hell. Adam Sandler does what he does best which is comedy. I thought this was funnier than any other critic suspected. The critics are always hating on Adam Sandler comedy such as Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison. Those are great comedies. So screw off critics. Full Review »
