Little Nicky Reviews

June 19, 2002
Has an enormous cast of stars, including Harvey Keitel as daddy devil. But even the stars couldn't brighten up this flick.

It would be hyperbole to argue that the road to movie hell is entirely paved with Adam Sandler's crude intentions -- but the guy sure has made a heck of a start.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

Where's Sandler in all this? Lost in gimmicks that smack of desperation.

It never quite lights a fire under its subject matter.
January 1, 2000
So aggressively juvenile -- make that infantile -- that I feel I should be scrawling this review in crayon.
January 1, 2000
I can enjoy a dumb, raunchy comedy as much as the next classless viewer. But it has to be funny, and Little Nicky isn't.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
January 1, 2000
The movie doesn't have one genuine moment of imagination, good timing or comic inspiration.
January 1, 2000
Heaven knows how many years in purgatory I may rack up for admitting this, but the movie is actually pretty funny.

A few more laughs wouldn't have hurt.

January 1, 2000
The most visually imaginative movie Sandler has made -- but it's also one of the most mind-bogglingly tasteless.
January 1, 2000
Like spending 84 minutes in hell.
January 1, 2000
Speaks to your inner 12-year-old -- and it made him laugh a lot.

It's a clever idea bogged down in sophomoric sloppiness.

January 1, 2000
Has all the makings of another big hit for Sandler.
January 1, 2000
A devilishly energetic vehicle that contains about as many laughs as his previous features combined.
January 1, 2000
It is superlative in its dreadfulness.
January 1, 2000
The story plods along, punctuated by gags that are more silly than inventive.

Casting strokes are plunked out there without the slightest development or elaboration.
January 1, 2000
A disgusting and humorless mess.
January 1, 2000
It's generally a lot like my idea of hell: too crowded, with badly dressed people making faces, talking too loud and fighting for attention.
January 1, 2000
What could be worse than a bad Sandler comedy? How about a bad Sandler comedy with special effects?

The nonexistent laughs just keep on coming.
January 1, 2000
Full of kerplunkingly unfunny jokes.
January 1, 2000
There are laughs to be had, yet the movie is, if anything, more strenuous than it is funny.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
January 1, 2000
A deeply unfunny fantasy comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 1, 2000
Though it's an improvement over Big Daddy, it's still not as consistently lowbrow funny as Happy Gilmore.
January 1, 2000
I can see how Little Nicky could have worked, It's just that Sandler, at the center, is a distraction.

January 1, 2000
Way too often (so as to seem all the time), Little Nicky's loose style reclines into flat-out laziness.
