There are good movies and there are bad movies. And then there are movies that make us tired.

Unlike Trey Parker, Sandler doesn't understand that the idea of exploiting molestation for laughs is funny, not actually exploiting it yourself.

If there was ever a movie where the upbeat ending feels like a copout, this is the one.

The only time 8 Crazy Nights comes close to hitting a comedic or satirical target is during the offbeat musical numbers.

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 animation is rudimentary and imagination virtually absent.

Schmaltzy and unfunny, Adam Sandler's cartoon about Hanukkah is numbingly bad, Little Nicky bad, 10 Worst List bad.

Sandler is remaining true to his own traditions, although it remains to be seen whether anyone will thank him for that once they've seen the movie.
