Little Nicky

Critics Consensus

Despite the presence of a large, talented cast, the jokes in Little Nicky are dumb, tasteless, and not that funny, and Adam Sandler's character is grating to watch.

Movie Info

In a perfect world, he'd be happy to head-bang in his room all day to heavy metal music. But no, his mom is an angel, his old man is the devil, and like all good fathers, he insists that Nicky get involved in the "family business." Nicky could think of 666 things he'd rather be doing than corrupting souls or spewing evil, but when his father's command over Hades is threatened by his bullying older brothers, it's up to unbalanced Nicky to restore the balance between Good and Evil on earth.

    Little Nicky won't appeal to everyone and those who have seen it won't hold it in the classic Adam Sandler column. I only enjoy Little Nicky because of the madness of the support characters and the Tarantino moments. The storyline is high concept and the purpose of this film is to have Sandler go through a lot of sketch style moments. The film isn't horrible and I feel the critics and fans were waiting for a film like this from Sandler so the bad reviews could come out. You can actually see the issue with the film and all the films that followed from The Waterboy. The filmmaker and vast support cast seem to be enjoying themselves but the jokes don't connect like they should. I don't hate the film but I can't say I watch it every year and it's just one of those films I will watch from time to time. 08/05/2020

    I don't like American Comedies, and I especially don't like Adam Sandler, but for whatever reason, I love Little Nicky. Maybe it's A) because I was big into the heavy-metal-heavy Satanic themes when I first saw it at a mere 7 years old, or maybe it's B) because of how young and therefore unrefined my taste was I was when I first saw it, or maybe C) it's just... Actually good? Almost certainly a combination of A and B.

    I simply do not understand why this film is funny, it's stupid and foul mouthed, filled with gross out humour, totally the worst Sandler film.

    Little Nicky is yet another lame Adam Sandler comedy. Though there were some aspects of the film I enjoyed, as a whole, the film failed as a comedy. The comedic elements are very poor, as well as the acting. The cast are dull, boring and annoying. The high point of the film is Ozzy Osbourne's cameo. Even with, it doesn't save the film from being a total misfire. Adam Sandler displays a tired out comedy routine with Little Nicky, thus the film suffers from poor comedy, which gets tiring very quickly. I laughed a few times; unfortunately this is not a film that you can laugh over and over. Little has stood the test of time, and the comedic elements are tired, sloppy and plainly stupid. The comedy came out when I was still in High school, so I loved it back then, as an adult in my mid twenties, I view it now as an awful comedy with nothing really to enjoy, aside from the metal music used and Ozzy's cameo. Other than those two elements, the film is bad, forgettable, with a poor cast. This could have been a funny film if it wasn't for Sandler and the usual cast that he stars with. I found them to be quite dry, and they really didn't deliver any laughs. Little Nicky is a boring, forgettable comedy that hasn't stood the test of time. I hated the film, and thought it was a wasted opportunity to do something great. The film really disappointed me, and is one of Sandler's worst.
