Ouch. Lame Sandler attempt at holiday humor.

A nearly unwatchable waste of time...

There are sporadic laughs to be had from this gruesome guff, but most of them are nervous relieved titters when its not as bad as you feared rather than bellylaughs of genuine amusement.

Sentimentality and secretions, with a generous helping of blatant product placement, do not make for the most graceful of holiday entertainments.

Adam Sandler's goal may have been to provide a holiday movie with Chanukah as the central celebration, but it's not suitable for children and not entertaining to most adults.

The film might have been funny if it weren't so poorly executed and fixated on bodily functions.

[T]he movie is like a snotty little kid who thinks he can shock you with all the naughty words he knows...

... a story whose cleverness and meaning is sullied among horseplay we can't take the kids to see.

It's about time that all the Christmas movies out there were balanced with a decent Hannukah movie. Sadly, this isn't it.

...ideal for Adam Sandler fans who were confused by Punch-Drunk Love.

State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)

Only in the world of Adam Sandler could an animated message of inter-faith holiday appreciation be mixed in with a sextet of defecating deer, a woman with three breasts and songs about hatred and drinking.

Small-town goofballs, bizarre musical numbers and plenty of toilet humor -- ah, the holidays are here again.

This movie's gotta be the result of some pot-induced wager between Adam Sandler and his nattering cronies: "Hey guys, I'm like a $20 million movie star! How freakin' FUNNY is that? I bet I can make ANY movie I want!"

The only real achievement that a movie as puerile and moronic as Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights can claim is that it risks giving both Christmas movies and animation a bad name.

Nothing but side-splitting, richly coloured, instant classic laughs -- all with the typical Sandler touch.

Quite the worst animated movie of the year...
