Score distribution:

  1. What's special about the movie is how totally it believes in itself as a musical. The tunes, co-written by Sandler and a bunch of his pals, take on rock opera and traditional Jewish folk music with boyish exuberance.

  2. The film has good design, effective animation and generic if endurable songs, but Sandler wants to slam his sentiment and wallow in it too, and he compromises with the worst of both worlds.

  3. Isn't appropriate for any innocent child -- assuming such lovely creatures still exist. But boys and girls who enjoy surprise attacks in their entertainment (of the aforementioned toilet variety) are going to have a blast. Sad but true.

  4. This is as dreadful a holiday offering as you're likely to find this year. A lump of coal would be more welcome.

  5. Its humor stems precisely from our enjoying its lead character's rotten behavior.

  6. The worst Hanukkah movie ever made, Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights does for the holiday what "Santa Claus: The Movie" did for Christmas.

  7. Certain to be distasteful to children and adults alike, Eight Crazy Nights is a total misfire.

    This movie was brilliant, and anyone who gives it a zero is antisemitic.

    Typical that the majority of the critics hated this, but I love it, poop jokes and all.

    Not a good movie, but not a bad one either.

  5. I think any random 12 year old kid could write a better script. It fails horribly at both the story and the character design, and the jokesI think any random 12 year old kid could write a better script. It fails horribly at both the story and the character design, and the jokes are pretty much the unfunniest and most awful ones I've ever heard in any movie. I give 2 mercy points for the decent animation. Expand
  6. I’ve wanted a Channukah movie for years but not like this. 8 Crazy Nights isn’t just a terrible Channukah movie, or a bad film, but one of theI’ve wanted a Channukah movie for years but not like this. 8 Crazy Nights isn’t just a terrible Channukah movie, or a bad film, but one of the most offensive cartoons I’ve ever seen. Not just because of its stereotyping but because of the auteurism of Adam Sandler. The same cliché story about finding love, the offensive humor full of the lowest form of humor poop and fart jokes, and retarded voices all combine to create a cartoon that is both unpleasant to watch and just plain torture making 1 hour and ½ feel like an eternity. The biggest mitzvah you can do yourself is not watch this movie if you see it playing around Channukah. Listen to the Channukah Song by Adam Sandler, spend time with friends and family, or anything beside watching this turd of a movie. My Channukah present to all of you is that I sat through this movie so you don’t have to. Take my word it sucks. Leave it leave. If you thought you hated Adam Sandler’s humor before…..Nonetheless, have a happy Channuakah. Expand

Whitey's voice is almost intolerable, there's too many jokes (pun intended), and I'd go as far as to say it's one of if not Adam Sandler/Rob Schneider's worst; not that they're really great actors to begin with...
