You've never seen Adam like this. Adam Sandler's EIGHT CRAZY NIGHTS is a hilarious animated holiday fable that's also a musical, featuring star voices from Jon Lovitz and Rob Schneider. When extremely disgruntled small-town guy Davey Stone (voiced by Sandler) faces another holiday season in his New England hometown, he does what he always has - he screws up big and lands in jail. Davey's old basketball referee, Whitey, bails him out with the bright idea of putting Davey to work doing community service. But Davey turns his sentence into a daily disaster for Whitey and the whole town! After a few surprises - including the mysterious reason for Davey's bad attitude and the reappearance of a childhood sweetheart - Davey might find a reason or two to change his ways.

The film might have been funny if it weren't so poorly executed and fixated on bodily functions.

Sets animation back 30 years, musicals back 40 years and Judaism back at least 50.

Lame attempt at holiday humor with lots of iffy behavior.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights is an animated Hanukkah feature with more than its fair share of inappropriate and gross-out humor. This movie is not for young children or those who might find lead character Davey's actions worth imitating. The movie has extremely vulgar humor, strong language -- including "crap," "bulls--t," "bite me," and "butthole" -- and the middle-finger gesture. The lead character makes a joke at the expense of an overweight child; another joke is made about a transgender woman. Look out for references to a "morning erection" and innuendo involving the word "melons." In perhaps the most disturbing scene, an elderly man in a portable potty is kicked down a snowy hill. He emerges covered in excrement and immediately is frozen. Deer lick the excrement icicle until he's thawed out and are shown with excrement on their teeth. There also is Asian stereotyping.
