All Critics (111) | Top Critics (34)

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

Sets animation back 30 years, musicals back 40 years and Judaism back at least 50.

I'd prefer to think of Sandler in Punch-Drunk Love, the one good movie of the three he did this year.

Ouch. Lame Sandler attempt at holiday humor.

Audience Reviews for Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights


Adam Sandler's "Eight Crazy Night's" is about as funny as watching a lame television late-night cartoon, it has a dumb story and lines that really are not very funny. The end of the film is the best, when they turn the conclusion into a dance number, but that is not saying much. All this film is, is a bunch of sloppily put together scenes to make it's audience feel good about themselves once the characters accomplish their goals, but if I'm being honest, I found it hard to comply with these characters, due to the fact that I didn't know which side of them to look at. "Eight Crazy Night's" is stupid, unfunny, and has a terrible premise, but in the end, I can say that the voice acting was pretty good, and I had a bit of fun.

Jennifer: Thanks for sharing the Holiday spirit, psycho. 

"The Ultimate Battle Between Naughty And Nice."

Eight Crazy Nights is another ripoff of the Scrooge/Grinch character, where a guy who hates the holidays and lives to ruin them for others ultimately has a change of heart. This movie is excruciating to watch even though it clocks in at a measly 75 minutes. By the end, you'll be glad that it was no longer. To say everything that is bad about the movie in one little review would be hard, so I'll just hit the big ones. 

Adam Sandler does his routine animation style in this one. He wastes no time in getting to the fart and crap jokes, and they just keep on flying at us throughout. He also voices three characters, one being in his normal voice and the other two being a brother-sister combo that he uses the most annoying voices ever for. I'm guessing that he thinks it is funny to just sound as annoying as possible. Well I for one wasn't laughing. In fact, I don't think I laughed once throughout this whole piece of shit.

Then there are the lame songs. Horribly written and horribly performed, the Christmas duds are sure to give you a case of nausea. Then at times he adds, the annoying voices into the songs and holy shit... you just want to die. I'd take just about any Christmas film over this one, aside from those crappy Hallmark, Lifetime, ABC Family films that are shown every year.

The worst thing about this movie just might be that it was made the same year that Sandler did Punch Drunk Love. So when he got done with his one great movie, he turned around and probably did his worst(aside from Going Overboard,  but no one has seen that, so it doesn't matter). Do yourself a favor and re-watch other Holiday films and don't give this a chance. Sandler fan or not, this is unwatchable.

This movie was so terrible I wanted to throw up, and not the throw up where you go to the fair and get hopped up on pocorn and then throw up a ride, I mean throw up where this movie sucks.
