New York Post
It's funnier than "Bedazzled," which isn't saying much.

Village Voice
Certainly Sandler's most ambitious work. It's not just a bid for respectability but a genuine allegory.

It's a clever idea bogged down in sophomoric sloppiness. Sitting through it doesn't feel like eternal damnation, but it's not exactly heaven, either. It's a $9.50 tour of adolescent purgatory.
60
The kindest thing that can be said about Sandler's sense of humor is that it's unapologetically juvenile.

Boston Globe
Hell itself is going to hell in Sandler's new comedy.

San Francisco Examiner
Little Nicky is but a meek gross-out cousin of "The Waterboy."

Portland Oregonian
Though it's debatable whether Sandler is squandered or just supremely annoying here, the film's flaws aren't entirely his fault.

Diehard Sandler fans will probably find it uproarious, but others will have to make do with the occasional chuckle.
25
Philadelphia Inquirer
Full of kerplunkingly unfunny jokes and ex-"Saturday Night Live" cast members turning up to do shtick.

How much you enjoy this movie depends on how funny you find Sandler talking out the side of his mouth with a gravelly squawk -- for the entire movie.
