When seasoned comedian George Simmons learns of his terminal, inoperable health condition, his desire to form a genuine friendship cause him to take a relatively green performer under his wing as his opening act.
Any true Adam Sandler fan knows about his former pet dog Meatball. It was only a matter of time before Sandler would put Meatball in front of the camera and in 2002 he did with this short film that played in front of Sandler's forgettable animated film EIGHT CRAZY NIGHTS (it can be found in the special feature section of the EIGHT CRAZY NIGHTS DVD). Although the short is only two minutes in the length, it is highly amusing throughout. However, the short is not quite as funny as it could have been due to its PG rating (think Mr. Beefy's antics in LITTLE NICKY). Director and editor Nicholaus Goosen went on to make his feature film debut directing the Sandler produced GRANDMA'S BOY. 8/10
