    Entertainment Weekly Bruce Fretts

    You know all that artistic cred Adam Sandler built up with his acclaimed work in ''Punch-Drunk Love''? Well, he flushes it down the crapper with Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights -- the most ill-conceived animated comedy since the 1991 dog ''Rover Dangerfield.''

    Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern

    An appallingly tedious Hanukkah comedy that must have bubbled up from the Porta Potti of his subconscious.

    USA Today Mike Clark

    Myopic Whitey, continually passed over for a lifetime achievement athletic award, bears a passing resemblance to Columbia's all-time No. 1 animated star, the nearsighted Mr. Magoo. It's nice to think that if he ever went to this movie, he wouldn't be able to see it.

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

Not for kids 16 and under

Ouch. Lame Sandler attempt at holiday humor.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie is not for young children or those who might find Davey's actions worth imitating. The movie has extremely vulgar humor and strong language for a PG-13. The gross-out factor of this movie is quite high, so some parents may not wish to watch the movie themselves.

  • Families can talk about Davey's method of coping with the loss of his parents and his difficulties in accepting sympathy from people. Families may wish to discuss the treatment of different characters by the community, starting with the Duvall twins.
