Adam Sandler invites you to share some holiday cheer in the new, no-holds-barred musical comedy Adam Sandler's 8 Crazy Nights. Davey Stone, a 33-year old party animal, finds himself in trouble with the law after his wild ways go too far. In keeping with the holiday spirit, the judge gives Davey one last chance at redemption-spend the holiday performing community service as the assistant referee for the youth basketball league or go to jail. Davey thinks he's gotten off easy until he meets Whitey Duvall, the eccentric, elf-like head referee. The mismatch between Whitey's good heart and never-ending optimism and Davey's constant troublemaking soon have them both wondering if going to jail wouldn't have been easier! In this new, full-length animated feature about basketball, old girlfriends, holiday spirits, and the mall, Adam Sandler voices the three lead characters of Whitey, Davey, and Whitey's fraternal twin sister Eleanore!

I'm not a huge fan of Adam Sandler, I like some of his work but this was by far one of his works ideas. He made fun of: fat people, Asians, people with birth defects, harry people, short people, bald people, people who are missing one hand, people who have an extra breast. I mean c'mon, everyone but Jews basically, perhaps it's a little reverse anti-Semitism? It could have been a touching story but there were things that didn't make sense. The deers for instance, what was that all about? It has a "touching ending" but lets be real, it was 81 minutes of garbage, and 5 minutes of sappy goodness.
This movie is not recommend for anyone who has a sense of humor above 5th grade level, nor is it recommend for children under the age of 13.
