A Paradise for Adam Sandler's Fans
27 May 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Let me explain something about Adam Sandler's movies (and his recordings and his SNL shows). His humor is something you either like or hate. There's no middle situation and there's not really a category for it except for 'Adam Sandler humor'. It also came to my attention that the people who think that Sandler is stupid, think the same of Jim Carrey and almost any other pure comedian, which narrows down their comedy taste to 'Scary Movie'.

Little Nicky is a film that every Adam Sandler fan has to see. This picture is about the son of Satan, who comes to earth in order to save his father from extinction. Everything (yes, everything) that takes place place in this movie, from the cast to the script, to the cameo appearances of celebrities, pays homage to earlier Sandler works. Those little or sometimes bigger references are not only links to Sandler's previous movies but also to his recordings and SNL shows. It's a real treat for every true Adam Sandler fan!

Also a great production along with a great Heavy Metal soundtrack make this film one of the best movies Adam's ever done.

I have to warn you that you have to have at least some experience with Adam's previous efforts in order to appreciate 'Little Nicky'. Of course if you are an Adam Sandler fan you're going to love this one. If you are not, please go rent 'Die Hard with a Vengeance' for one more time...
