| A stupid comedy movie that mostly works
When it comes to classic, good ol' Adam Sandler, this movie is hit or miss. And for me, it's mostly hit. Not to say this a perfect film, as it's far from it, but compared to his newer movies, this is definitely the better film. The performances were great for what they were, the story is decent, and overall, this film is awesome. The humor in this movie is stupid, but it's done in a way that it is still funny, and that's one of the main reasons why I like this film a lot more than his newer films. However, the flaws in this film are pretty big in this movie. One, is the story. While I said that it was decent, and I think it is, it can be a bit predictable at times. Another, being the flow of the film, as it can sometimes feel either rushed or stretched out, and it can get sloppy at times. Lastly, being the premise, as it can can seem a bit off and sometimes mean-spirited. Overall, this movie may not be Adam Sandler's best, but it is definitely one of his better films and I think anyone who hasn't seen it yet will definitely enjoy the hilarious randomness and stupidity, that is Little Nicky, like I have, because it is indeed, a stupid comedy movie that mostly works.

Did You Know?


Reese Witherspoon, who played Nicky's (Adam Sandler's) mother, is ten years younger than Sandler in real-life.


Human Dartboard: If my dad had spent this kind of time with me, I wouldn't have to ball those people.
Human Dartboard: Yeah, you would have.
Human Dartboard: Yeah, you're right.


When Nicky is playing basketball against Cassius, and Nicky has the ball, when the picture shoots in to Cassius, he appears to be holding a basketball as well, although when the shot cuts back to both of them in the picture, Cassius isn't. Then, when the shot goes back in to Cassius, he's holding the basketball again.

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.
