Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Has an enormous cast of stars, including Harvey Keitel as daddy devil. But even the stars couldn't brighten up this flick."
‑ , Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"It never quite lights a fire under its subject matter."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"This is no Wedding Singer."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"A pleasantly sloppy party that doesn't go on too long."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"No, it's not a masterpiece, nor is it meant to be. For those of us greatly amused by the little rascal, this is a definite four-star movie."
‑ Ron Wells, Film Threat
"It would be hyperbole to argue that the road to movie hell is entirely paved with Adam Sandler's crude intentions -- but the guy sure has made a heck of a start."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"I can see how Little Nicky could have worked, It's just that Sandler, at the center, is a distraction."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Maybe Adam Sandler really has some familial connections with the Devil."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"If you can take Sandler for more than five minutes, this is his funniest film to date."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"...diverting enough to warrant a recommendation..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Where's Sandler in all this? Lost in gimmicks that smack of desperation."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"The most visually imaginative movie Sandler has made -- but it's also one of the most mind-bogglingly tasteless."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"Pretty hellish."
‑ , Film4
"I don't know why, but I just wasn't laughing that much."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"The wait for funny scenes feels like an eternity spent in hell."
‑ Susan Tavernetti, Palo Alto Weekly
