It is as bad as you have heard.
16 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Look, I'm a Sandler fan. If that's for my sins then so be it. I own about three quarters of his output on DVD and have been known to debate vociferously about the benefits of The Wedding Singer & 50 First Dates, but Little Nicky is painfully bad. Badly written by Sandler, Tim Herlihy & Steven Brill, with the latter directing with a blunt sabre, Little Nicky relies purely on stupid crass jokes for its worth and forgets to put any semblance of a heart in its mix. It does try with its odd and underwritten romance sub-plot {featuring a bemused Patricia Arquette}, but the whole thing exists purely to make stoner's and air heads laugh. It actually looks real nice in HD, and the soundtrack is pretty rocking. While the number of star cameos makes for an interesting {bemusing in a why? sort of way} viewing. But this really is only for those who think that toilet waste and talking dogs are the highest forms of conceptual comedy. The most evil question of all in a film about Satan and his offspring? Is how in the hell did the likes of Harvey Keitel {stepping in after AC/DC axeman Angus Young dropped out} ever agree to be a part of this dirge?

Straight to hell boys, all of you. 3/10
