Goofs

(at around 21 mins) When Adrian is possessing the Cardinal, the possessed cardinal is standing barefoot on a steaming hot pizza. It's hard to believe that no one in the church would notice the steaming hot pizza, but it's even harder to believe that no one in the church would notice the possessed Mayor. He stood up in front of the crowd, with tin foil wrapped around his feet like shoes. See more »

Quotes

John: Hey, by the way, Nicky, check this out, what's Ozzy tryin' to say there?
Nicky: John, absolutely nothing, the blizzard always came straight with his messages, but wrap your minds around this, gentlemen.
[Pulls out a Chicago album]
Todd: I love this song.
[Nicky plays the album backwards -"I command you, in the name of Lucifer, to spill the blood of the innocent..."]
Peter: Oh my God, Chicago kicks ass!

Crazy Credits

During the closing credits, flashes of the character whereabouts were explained. When they explain Nicky's mom, (Reese Witherspoon) a picture still of her is shown saying "Mom immediately fell in love with her new aerobics instructor... Chris Farley." Giving a tribute to Chris who died 3 years before the film in 1997. The aerobics reference is referring to his classic skit on SNL that will always be hilariously remembered. Adam and the rest of the SNL gang were great friends with Farley. See more »

The Shiz-nit!
23 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

This movie rocks. From the actor who plays Adrian, (Rhys Ifans?) to Adam himself, to the "Kenny G" roommate, to the dog, who 'steals' the whole show.

I honestly try to understand why so many people thought this film sucked. They are probably stuck on Sandler's old (less refined) style. Well, guess what; he's changed. Sure it was funny to watch him get drunk and violent, like in <Happy Gilmore>, but Little Nicky is 10 times the entertainment of all those other Sandler films combined. Especially Billy Madison, which I thought was his worst film (no, maybe Airheads;)

This is why you should see <Little Nicky>:

1) The soundtrack is awesome 2) It's romantic (talking about butterflies, perfume, love, and floating) 3) All the funny cameos (And believe me, there were a LOT and they were all funny-Henry Winkler, Rob Schneider, Dan Marino, Dana Carvey, Regis Philbin, Ron Howard's brother, and Jon Lovitz to name a few....) In response to the negativity toward short cameos and "ac-TEURS that should've been used more"...*PLEASE!* Since when were Adam Sandler films about boring the audience to death with actors that "deserve" this and that.....You say they're thrown in there just because? You're right! Sandler simply loves the effect a 1 or 2-liner has on an audience! So what else you got? 4) It was extremely well-written. 5) It was pretty scary..no joke! 6) There's a talking bulldog who went out with a sewer rat!

Seriously, watch Little Nicky; it's warm-hearted and a lot funnier than <Big Daddy>. Sandler's best film to date!
