Goofs

When Nicky is playing basketball against Cassius, and Nicky has the ball, when the picture shoots in to Cassius, he appears to be holding a basketball as well, although when the shot cuts back to both of them in the picture, Cassius isn't. Then, when the shot goes back in to Cassius, he's holding the basketball again. See more »

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 Quintessential Sandler Film!
13 February 2001 | by (The Pit of Ultimate Darkness) – See all my reviews

This was a great film and one of the best films of the year, contrary to what so many others say. This is the second most underrated & unappreciated movie of 2000, following Book of Shadows: The Blair Witch 2. There is nothing to not like about this movie, it is virtually non-stop laughs from beginning to end.

Reading some other user's reviews I'm stunned at their disdain and hatred for this great film. People always say that this is no Citizen Kane...well duh...to quote Highlander "There can be only one!". Now I'm not saying that this movie is in the same league as Citizen Kane, but that doesn't mean it's bad. This is an epic Sandler piece, and his funniest to date, and is quite possibly the definitive Sandler film.

Unlike most people, I loathed Big Daddy, writing it off as cheesy and overly sentimental; a one-joke gag stretched beyond its limits. Luckily that does not apply to this film, every aspect of this film is great, from the surprise cameo by "CHUBS" (Carl Weathers) to Harvey Keitel's hilarious turn as Papa Satan. You've gotta love a movie that lets Quentin Tarantino use his "unique" acting "ability" to his advantage in a brilliant performance as the religious zealot. My favorite cameo belongs to B-Movie God Clint Howard...after this movie, I don't think I'll ever look at him the same way again! The Cameos are worth the ticket price alone!

The story was top-notch and was brilliantly executed. This film definitely shows maturity in Adam Sandler and Tim Herlihy's writing abilities, as they created a complex and involving storyline, and great and hilarious characters.

I recommend this film to any film fans. Give this one a shot, regardless of your personal view of Sandler and his talent. Sandler is one of the most underrated and ridiculed acts out there today, which is sad considering his remarkable talent. How many other performers out there today write, produce, and star in their own films?

I give this one * * * * * * out of * * * * *
