Adam, enough already!
Little Nicky (2000) Adam Sandler, Patricia Arquette, Harvey Keitel, Rhys Ifans, Tom ‘Tiny' Lister Jr., Rodney Dangerfield, Allen Covert, Peter Dante, Quentin Tarantino, Reese Witherspoon, Dana Carvey, Michael McKean, Ozzy Osbourne, D: Steven Brill. As Satan nears retirement, he'll hand over the task to rule Hell to one of his three sons. But when two of them leave Hell, the damned souls come in, and thereby the devil starts to die. So his only hope is to send off his `good son' Nicky, who has no evil in him whatsoever, to The Big Apple to bring back his brothers-who are wreaking the city. Uproarious and predictable, this juvenile comedy has a lot of sexually crude and awkwardly weird gags, and near the end, it gets sentimental. Though some of the actors appear in funny roles, especially Keitel as Satan, you'll get bored hearing Sandler doing another one of his speech impediment tricks. Written by Sandler. Running Time: 93 minutes and rated PG-13 for crude humor, sexual situations, language, drug use. * ½

Did You Know?


Harvey Keitel replaced Dustin Hoffman in the role of Satan.


Nicky: So where did you meet Dad?
Holly: It was a long time ago at this heaven/hell mixer.
Christa: I remember that night. You had like four daiquiris.


(at around 46 mins) After Nicky gets sprayed with mace on the fire escape outside Valerie's bedroom, he stumbles backward and begins to fall over the railing. In the next shot, however, his body is falling forward over the railing.

Crazy Credits

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.

Alternate Versions

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.
