    Hell itself is going to hell in Sandler's new comedy.
  2. A feast of bad taste, a demonic hog-wallow.

    Sandler repeats his sweet-souled doofus routine, with nerdy Patricia Arquette as the object of his affections.
  4. The kindest thing that can be said about Sandler's sense of humor is that it's unapologetically juvenile.
  5. 42
    Though it's debatable whether Sandler is squandered or just supremely annoying here, the film's flaws aren't entirely his fault.
  6. Adam Sandler finally has a good excuse: The devil made him do it.
  7. Little Nicky is but a meek gross-out cousin of "The Waterboy."
  8. Little Nicky will please Sandler's fans and likely won't win any converts.
  9. 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.
  10. 40
    Diehard Sandler fans will probably find it uproarious, but others will have to make do with the occasional chuckle.
  11. 60
    Certainly Sandler's most ambitious work. It's not just a bid for respectability but a genuine allegory.

However this film does have one saving grace, in that it is only the second worst film with little as it's first word (being marginally better than little man). Full Review »
