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!

When Whitey tells Eleanor about the night Davey's parents died, Whitey says it was in '81. After the team wins the basketball game, Whitey does the "robot dance" to the song "Mr. Roboto" which came out in '83. See more »

Not funny at all, just annoying. There's a lack of Chanukah movies so I was excited to find out about this one, but when I watched it I found that all the characters grated on my nerves. I didn't even laugh once. It's rare that a comedy manages to be this unfunny.
I rarely like Adam Sandler but I've seen the occasional movie with him that I've enjoyed, and it has a small role with Rob Schneider in it and he's usually quite funny. This movie was a real let-down though.
It was the cinematic equivalent of getting teeth pulled. I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone...
