PG-13 | | Comedy, Fantasy
After two of the devil's three sons escape Hell to wreak havoc on Earth, the devil must send his third son, the mild-mannered Nicky, to bring them back before it's too late.
The song "Ladies Night" by Kool & The Gang is played while The Peeper (Jon Lovitz) is attacked by the love bird. Lovitz sang the same song in The Wedding Singer (1998).
These kids came here to see the Globetrotters win!
Whitey the Referee: Ten points off from the Globetrotters on account of the bigmouth!
The "Rabbitt" that demon bites and rips the ear off is clearly a stuffed toy.
During the closing credits, flashes of the character whereabouts were explained. When they explain Nicky's mom, (Reese Witherspoon) a picture still of her is shown saying "Mom immediately fell in love with her new aerobics instructor... Chris Farley." Giving a tribute to Chris who died 3 years before the film in 1997. The aerobics reference is referring to his classic skit on SNL that will always be hilariously remembered. Adam and the rest of the SNL gang were great friends with Farley.
In the FOX 2004 presentation, many things were edited. All references to Popeye's are cut, so "Popeye's Chicken is fucking awesome" becomes "Chicken is kickin'". "Hitler's ass" becomes "Hitler's rear", "The sh*t has hit the fan." becomes "It has hit the fan". A deleted scene of the peeper becoming bait and being eaten by a fish was also added. The asking of the gatekeeper whether there were boobs on his head was cut out, and the Coke/Pepsi transformation was partially cut out.
