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 »

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 »

brilliant!
9 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

An absolutely brilliant and ingenious comedy. I am puzzled as to why this movie received such average reviews. I never listen to critics anyway. This film has so many angles. It's a fish out of water story with Sandler lost in New York, spoof of the punk rock genre, the damsel in distress theme, hilarious cameo with Rodney Dangerfield in Hell, the sarcastic talking dog, the John Lovitz peeping tom episode, sight gags galore, and the ultimate pineapple in Hiter's you-know-what. I laughed myself silly. This flick is raucously entertaining, but you need to appreciate Sandler's humor, which is an acquired taste, like beer. History will be kind to Sandler I think. Now for a true remake of Mad Mad Mad Mad World, with Sandler, Lovitz, Martin, Carrey, Murphy, and the rest of the SNL crowd.
