Casting everyone from Harvey Keitel to Rodney Dangerfield this is afilm that fits into the Adam Sandler universe since several characters fromsome of his other films appear. In summary, it's a pretty nice film, with a number of laugh-out-loud scenes, but it's still a long way from the Gary Cooper-Barabara Stanwyck classic film version, at least in terms of an aw-shucks wholesome hero. There's nomiddle situation and there's not really a category for it except for 'AdamSandler humor'. Paul Dano gave a great performance as Eli Sunday though people tend to disagree. I just hope Sandler doesn't attempt It's A Wonderful Life next, I don't think the world's quite ready yet.
To stop Adrian and Cassius, Satan sends Nicky to Earth with a silver flask that traps whoever drinks from it inside. As Mother Teresa once said, kindly words are heard once but their echoes are heard for ever - Deeds' character and his deeds pun definitely intended themselves are echoes of another, lamentably more innocent time and it's uplifting to see this spirit so laboured in the film's remake. The supporting cast includes Rodney Dangerfield Lucifer , Patricia Arquette Valerie , Peter Dante Peter , Jonathan Loughran John , Dana Carvey Referee , Jon Lovitz Peeper , Kevin Nealon Gatekeeper , Michael McKean Chief of Police , Quentin Tarantino Deacon and Reese Witherspoon Holly. This isn't one of them. Little Nicky 2000 When somebody's mother is an angel and his father is the devil, life can be really confusing.
Back on Earth again, Nicky and his friends devise a plan to capture Adrian in a subway station, but Adrian discovers their trick. When he goes to the court and tricks Cassius into the flask, John and Peter are so thrilled with his performance that they become his devoted fans. Daniel Day-Lewis' performance is in a league of its own: his voice, his mannerisms, his physical movement, his stunted emotions, are flesh and blood, and hauntingly so, in a way that even Tommy Lee Jones in In The Valley of Elah which I thought was a pretty staggering performance can't quite attain. Well, guess what; he's changed. The only redeeming part of this movie was when it was finally over, I didn't have to watch it anymore. Overall watch this movie for a laugh and not particularly for anything else. Anotherthing I should note about the film is it's use of current music which I cannot stand in most movies.
Also a great production along with a great Heavy Metal soundtrack make thisfilm one of the best movies Adam's ever done. Roasted upon its release as one of the worst films of all time LittleNicky turns out to be an okay comedy. The funniest part in the moviewhich gets a 10 out of 10 is the beginning of the film starring the highlyunderrated Jon Lovitz. You should not like this movie just because of the great technical achievements as you should not for any movie but for what it says and how it says it. Watch it with an open mind for silly, dark comedy and b-grade charm and you'll probably be pleasantly surprised! I guess what I am saying is this isn't as in-your-face type offensive most of the rest are.
Not all Christains are like Paul Dano's character and not all business man are like Daniel Day Lewis's character but many are like them. When he also believes it, something extraordinary happens. And that's just toname a few. Beefy, rents an apartment with an actor named Todd, and falls in love with a design student named Valerie. After she gives him a mysterious orb, he goes to Central Park.
This is an epic Sandler piece, and his funniest to date, and is quitepossibly the definitive Sandler film. Nicky's first encounter with his brothers occurs when Adrian sees him with Valerie, takes mental control of his body, and makes him scare her away. Here, perfectly in his element and at his best, Lewis could go toe to toe with Brando and Kinski, playing a part that oozes enough skill and pathos to earn him a place among Hollywood's, and perhaps the world's, greatest performances of all time. The man is a veritable God among ants on the screen. This action closes the portal filtering sinful souls to Hell and causes Satan to wither away.
After a nasty fall in which he breaks his ankle, he discovers oil in the shaft. Suffice to say that his decision is not well received by the boys, however-- at least not by Adrian and Cassius, who rebel by bolting from this most southern of regions to take up residence in the topside world of the mortals, the souls of whom it is their inherent duty to corrupt. Whatever possessed such fine talent as Harvey Keitel and Reese Witherspoon to stoop so low as to involve themselves with this horrid mess? I think anyone who has seenSandler's previous films should know that by now. Adam Sandler's movies can be categorized into either brilliantly funny The Wedding Singer or horribly idiotic. Some of the big-name starsinclude Harvey Keitel, Patricia Arquette, Quentin Tarantino, ReeseWitherspoon and my personal hero Rodney Dangerfield! There is a specific target audience of adults this is geared towards and is a film that you will either enjoy notice I didn't say love or hate with a passion. I don't mean Adam Sandler the actor, I mean the way over the top way his character was presented. Everybody overacted their role, and acted as stupid as possible.
Well I sure as hell don't. On second thought the poodle isn't as obnoxious. In fact shame on everyone involved in this mind numbing, boring, tasteless, waste of celluloid. That is the world we live in. At first, Nicky has trouble staying alive on Earth. Without Daniel Day Lewis I don't think this movie could have achieved what it has.
To the mind of achild, its acceptable, but for a audience over 12 The movies ratedpg13 by the way. I guess you might like Little Nickey if you enjoy the sights and sounds of a shivering miniature poodle that won't stop whining and barking for a second. Several years later, a visitor tells Plainview about a ranch in California that is soaking in oil, so Pop and son head out there, under the pretense of hunting quail. Probably about 10 minutes in now, the first thing that sticks out, isSander. I'm almost embarrassed to admit I actually went to see this in the theatre. He apparently didn't understand that Sandler is an actor who needs a director who can keep him on task-- he needs direction, and plenty of it-- and he didn't get it from Brill.
