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.

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

Sandler is at his best as a rage-filled jerk, and at his worst as two of the most irritating characters in all of cartoondom.

Got a lot of holiday spirit, and a lot of laughs.

Adam Sandler's 8 Crazy Nights" is a crass, crude holiday stocking filled with disgustingly inappropriate humor.

An offbeat, sometimes gross and surprisingly appealing animated film about the true meaning of the holidays.

A little gem of animated lunacy that shows the comedian getting back to his roots.

One of the oddest animated holiday films you'll ever see, 8 Crazy Nights is also probably the funniest.

The most stirring holiday film since Prancer, and the best animated musical since South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut.

On the whole, this lively, bittersweet Columbia release works well and is sure to connect strongly with fans of Sandler at his most free-wheeling and uninhibited.

If you're burnt out on It's a Wonderful Life marathons and bored with A Christmas Carol, it might just be the movie you're looking for. It depends on how well flatulence gags fit into your holiday concept.

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.
