Little Nicky Web Site
LITTLE NICKY is the latest Adam Sandler movie. You
either like Sandler or don't. His last movie, BIG
DADDY, was his most "main stream" endeavor to date.
LITTLE NICKY, however, is his most bizzare film to
date. He plays the youngest of the devil's three
sons. The devil has decided to retire and needs to
pick a successor. It seems he feels none of his sons
are up to the task of running hell, so he decides to
remain on the throne for another 10,000 years or so.
Little Nicky is estactic, but his two older brothers
are irate, so they decide to head up to earth to rule
there and in the process created a hell on earth.
Well, little Nicky, being the spawn of satan with a
heart of gold is sent up to stop his brothers. Most
of the comedy comes out of Nicky being a fish out of
water during his first ever visit to earth. This
movie is silly and stupid, but I found my self
laughing almost the whole way through, so I guess I
liked it. I can't say it is Sandler's best movie so
far (although Roger Ebert did), but it was funny.
Aiding Sandler is an all-star supporting cast
including: Harvey Keitel, Rodney Dangerfield, Allen
Covert, Robert Smiegel as a talking dog, Jon Lovitz,
Patrica Arquette, Dana Carvey, the NBA's Bill Walton,
Blake Clark, Resse Witherspoon, Tiny Lister, Regis
Philben, Micheal McKean, Clint Howard, Quentin
Taratino, Lewis Arquette, Rob Schneider, George
Wallace, Ellen Cleghorne, Peter Dante, Carl Weathers,
and Kevin Nealon as "tithead." With a cast like that,
how could it not be entertaining?
