Consensus: Despite the presence of a large, talented cast, the jokes in Little Nicky are dumb, tasteless, and not that funny, and Adam Sandler's character is grating to watch.

Pretty hellish.

Adam Sandler plays the son of Satan and even though it is portrayed very dumb, it has it;s moments where you can crack up. It's not a great film, but it… More
