If you can take Sandler for more than five minutes, this is his funniest film to date.

No, it's not a masterpiece, nor is it meant to be. For those of us greatly amused by the little rascal, this is a definite four-star movie.

Sandler delivers a performance that would cause yawns in a Montessori.

This film is pretty much stupid from start to finish, although there are occasions when one is unable to stifle an embarrassed chuckle.

Nothing in this ambitious, effects-laden spectacle about family values in hell made me laugh. Not once.

This is one of Sandler's lesser films, but fans will dig it nonetheless. I did.

Simply not that funny... a film that feels forced in its formula and naked in its construction.

Farfetched as it seems, Little Nicky emerges as a comic tribute to filial loyality.

Has an enormous cast of stars, including Harvey Keitel as daddy devil. But even the stars couldn't brighten up this flick.

jokes about genitalia, as well as jabs at gays and the handicapped, and two scenes in which someone gets an object shoved into his posterior. ...Congratulations, MPAA: You're doing one helluva job of protecting our kids from unsavory material.
