Little Nicky [DVD] [2000]

Adam Sandler's son-of-Satan comedy arrives on DVD via New Line's Platinum Series. The overall treatment is good, but it's all targeted directly at Sandler fans. The picture is a good widescreen anamorphic transfer with a 1.85:1 aspect ratio. Colors are bright and sharp, particularly in the sequences in Hell. The sound is a Dolby 5.1 presentation, which is underused, but crisp and clear nonetheless. Delving into the extras, viewers first find a pair of commentaries. The first one, from Sandler, writer Tim Herlihey, and writer/director Steven Brill is strictly for diehard Sandler fans, as the self-congratulating tone of the track will raise the ire of anyone else. The second track is hosted by Michael McKean and features a number of cast members, including Clint Howard, Henry Winkler, and Ozzy Osbourne. Also featured are 20 deleted scenes. Some of these are extensions or alternate takes of existing scenes, while others are completely new. While some are interesting when seen in the context of the film, was it really necessary to include an outtake reel of the director's efforts to get two dogs to mate? Viewers may enjoy a 30-minute documentary on the making of Little Nicky. More interesting is a 17-minute look at heavy metal music, featuring interviews with Gene Simmons, Ozzy Osbourne, and Zakk Wylde, among others. As previously stated, if you're an Adam Sandler fan, your ship has come in. For everyone else, all the extras in the world won't save this DVD from being viewed as the devil's work.

    Little Nicky
    The youngest child of the family often has the most problems -- so why should things be different for the Prince of Darkness and his offspring? Satan (Harvey Keitel) is considering retirement, and is pondering which of his sons should take over the family business -- ambitious Adrian (Rhys Ifans), strapping Cassius (Tommy "Tiny" Lister Jr.), or Nicky (Adam Sandler), an accident-prone demon who prefers to stay in his room playing his favorite heavy metal tunes. When Satan decides to stay on for another 10,000 years, Adrian is outraged, and leaves Hell to go to New York, where he and Cassius attempt to round up enough souls to vote Satan out of power. Satan, understandably upset, sends Nicky to bring Adrian and Cassius back home, but Nicky finds life on Earth is more complicated than he expected. Things don't get any easier when he develops a crush on Valerie (Patricia Arquette), a good-hearted mortal woman. Little Nicky also features Michael McKean as a city official trying to put Nicky behind bars, Kevin Nealon as Hell's gatekeeper, Rodney Dangerfield as Satan's father, Robert Smigel as the voice of Beefy -- a talking dog who is Nicky's guide on earth, Allen Covert as Todd -- Nicky's new roommate, and Peter Dante and Jonathan Loughran as a pair of metalheads who dig Satan. Jon Lovitz and Reese Witherspoon play cameo roles, and Regis Philbin and Ozzy Osbourne appear as themselves. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Please tell me the dumb one is not my son!?


      4 of 5 stars for the Adam Sandler comedy movie Little Nicky. Usually I don't like Adam Sandler's work, this is an exception. Sandler plays the dummy kid of the Devil. He is trying to retire and leave matters to one of his three sons. Well, the two stronger sons leave ah "dad" for the real world. The devil sends Sandler to "collect" them. Alot of funny material in this movie and some really cute and funny characters. I specially enjoyed Rodney "I get no respect" Dangerfield in cameo one-liners playing the Devil's dad. Lots of visual gags and odd things which are funny. I do recommend this movie. It is easy on the brain, entertaining, funny, cute and odd all at the same time. The only thing missing is the old Benny Hill joke "honey, please tell me the two strong sons are mine, but, the dumb one is not." "Sorry honey, he is yours and the other two are not..." Good job from Sander!

      I have been looking to purchase this movie for months, and couldn’t seem to find it for a reasonable price anywhere. I’m stoked to have found a copy, and didn’t have to spend a small fortune on it. Definitely a favorite Sandler movie growing up!

      Devil in the details


      C'mon! Is there any other movie like this? The Devil is always seen as a bad guy with every other movie. Would it kill you to see a movie like this and just give yourself a break?
