One of Sandler's best (however,that's not saying much)
19 November 2000 | by (Jonquiere, Canada) – See all my reviews

I have to admit that I have a soft spot for Adam Sandler. He might be "juvenile",but in a way,we all are. In this one, Sandler plays a son of Satan (Harvey Keitel) and an angel (Reese Witherspoon),who has a deformity because he was hit in the face with a shovel.Once again, Sandler does something strange with his face (like in The Waterboy) and it is a little annoying. However,the movie bristles with some form of charm from a great cast,which has hardly been seen in a Sandler movie.A lot of stars show up,such as Rob Schneider,Ozzy Osbourne and Quentin Tarantino (in a especially funny part).The funniest character in the movie is the dog who teaches Nicky how to survive.There is a scene where Nicky learns how to eat chicken that is uproarious. The movie also benefits from good special effects and a rockin' soundtrack.This does not mean the movie is without flaws. Like I said,Sandler's face is annoying,and the beginning is a little boring. This movie will not advance Sandler's career much,but it sure won't kill it. 7.5/10
