Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights
Come celebrate the joy and togetherness of the Hanukkah season with Adam Sandler -- yeah, that Adam Sandler -- in this raucous animated comedy written and produced in collaboration with the noted funnyman. Davey Stone (voice of Adam Sandler) is a twentysomething man with a short temper and a reputation for causing trouble who lives in the small New England town of Dukesberry.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film might have been funny if it weren't so poorly executed and fixated on bodily functions."
‑ , Time Out
"I'd prefer to think of Sandler in Punch-Drunk Love, the one good movie of the three he did this year."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Ouch. Lame Sandler attempt at holiday humor."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Sentimentality and secretions, with a generous helping of blatant product placement, do not make for the most graceful of holiday entertainments."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"... a story whose cleverness and meaning is sullied among horseplay we can't take the kids to see."
‑ Mark Collette, Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
"Audiences have at least 80 reasons to reject Eight Crazy Nights."
‑ , Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Squanders the cross-cultural comedy potential of a Jewish-themed Christmas movie on cheap fart gags and boilerplate schmaltz."
‑ Ed Halter, Village Voice
"A nearly unwatchable waste of time..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Adam Sandler's goal may have been to provide a holiday movie with Chanukah as the central celebration, but it's not suitable for children and not entertaining to most adults."
‑ Cheryl DeWolfe, Apollo Guide
"It's about time that all the Christmas movies out there were balanced with a decent Hannukah movie. Sadly, this isn't it."
‑ Emma Cochrane, Empire Magazine
"Sets animation back 30 years, musicals back 40 years and Judaism back at least 50."
‑ Roger Moore, Houston Chronicle
"Got a lot of holiday spirit, and a lot of laughs."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"There are sporadic laughs to be had from this gruesome guff, but most of them are nervous relieved titters when its not as bad as you feared rather than bellylaughs of genuine amusement."
‑ , Film4
"[T]he movie is like a snotty little kid who thinks he can shock you with all the naughty words he knows..."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"...ideal for Adam Sandler fans who were confused by Punch-Drunk Love."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
