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.

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

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.

Families looking for something to watch together should steer well clear, unless appreciation of outhouse humor is a family tradition.

Ouch. Lame Sandler attempt at holiday humor.

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.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)

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

An excessively gross, dull film ... lacking originality or wit.

Here's to hoping we never have to spend a 9th crazy night with Whitey, Davey, and the whole crappy gang.

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.

Not even Steven Spielberg has dreamed up such blatant and sickening product placement in a movie.

It didn't warm my heart, but it sure did give me a headache. What a horrible, horrible film.

The songs are rather forgettable and sometimes downright painful.
