Goofs

(at around 3 mins) At the very beginning when Nicky is "air jamming" to Van Halen's "Runnin' With The Devil" (which is playing on the right turntable), the turntables have no covers up until just before Jimmy The Demon walks in, then they are covered after that. 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 »

Cheesy fun... Just need to lighten up a little!
29 August 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Little Nicky is a love it or hate it movie... Personally, I love it. It's silly, cheesy and doesn't pretend to be anything else. From the sarcastic dog's snoring to the Chicago record to Quentin Tarantino's blind preacher, it's got plenty of proper laughs. Yes, it's crude, but it's clearly not made to be sophisticated - the special effects are terrible and Adam Sandler is at his cheesiest best. That's what gives this movie its charm - the fact that it doesn't take itself too seriously.

Let's not forget the soundtrack - personally, I think it's probably one of the most awesome out there - with everything from P.O.D to AC/DC, Foo Fighters/Dave Grohl, Scorpions, Van Halen and more.

Go into this movie with high expectations & a view that everything has to have the utmost artistic integrity, special effects and the best acting and you'll be bitterly disappointed. Watch it with an open mind for silly, dark comedy and b-grade charm and you'll probably be pleasantly surprised!
