Trivia

When Jon Lovitz was on the celebrity edition of Who Wants to Be a Milionaire (1999) in 2000, he promoted this movie, and mentioned some of the co-stars. Interestingly, host Regis Philbin has an uncredited cameo as himself, but never mentioned to Jon Lovitz or the audience that he's in the same movie. See more »

Quotes

Angel #3: [Deleted scene; in Heaven] Hi, Holly! What's up?
Holly: Hi! They're not my friends. We just let them use the terrace.
Nicky: Is this cake made out of Reefer?
Holly: Drugs aren't cool in Heaven. Right, Jenna?
Christa: Hey, Nicky. Would you like something from the Hostess tree? Pink Snowball, Ho-Ho, Cupcake?
Nicky: No, thanks. I'm okay.
Jenna: They're fat-free in Heaven.
Nicky: That's alright. I appreciate that. So, are you Adrian and Cassius' mom, too?
Christa: No! Their mothers were not angels.
Holly: Yeah, they were like hookers or like, strippers or something...

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 »

Pretty underrated!
20 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

Geeze, this movie got the shaft! I thought it was a lot of fun and pretty funny. The Ozzy Osbourne line, 'Here, kill him with theeees' cracks me up every time. I don't know why this is disdained so much. Sure, it's no "Rushmore", but it has its place and I enjoy it for what it is--a kind-hearted, dumb, funny comedy in the vein of "Dumb & Dumber" or "Tommy Boy"--both classic movies in and of themselves. In that category, I give "Little Nicky" a 10! Blow-hards and elitists need not apply....
