Storyline

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!

A great movie with a good theme
30 December 2005 | by phpierceSee all my reviews

I totally disagree with the other review. This movie may not be a movie that is suitable for children, but I don't think that was the intention. This is clearly an adult style holiday movie. Meant for someone with a sense of humor. If you are a fan of Adam Sandler this a typical Sandler classic. I absolutely recommend this movie to any adult with a good sense of humor. The antics and situations that Whitey is put through will make you laugh and cry. Until this movie I didn't think a cartoon could pull on your heart strings, this one does. If you listen to the movie and besides the comedy you get what the message is, then you will think that it is a good holiday movie to. So give it a chance and you won't be disappointed.
