I know EXACTLY why some people dislike this movie.
It's very easy to get. They are not Adam Sandler fans! If you
one of his fans, chances are you are going to like this movie. If you are
NOT one of his fans. 50 percent of the time or more, you are going to

I can't even say \"Eight Decent Jokes\"
"Eight Crazy Nights", or "Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights", a crude
animated film, shows comedian Adam Sandler in cartoon form. I'm no
die-hard fan of his, but I think he can be funny, so I recently decided
to check out this film, despite a lot of negative reviews. Well, guess
what? Now I agree with those negative reviews. I'm sure this film had
potential to be a decent comedy (like some of Sandler's live action
films), and a good, touching holiday adventure as well, but it didn't
really turn out to be either of these things, unfortunately.
Davey Stone lives in the town of Dukesberry, New England. He is now in
his early thirties, and is a nasty alcoholic with a bad reputation.
Twenty years ago, he was basically the opposite, but something went
horribly wrong! Now that he's so uncouth, he is known to cause trouble,
and one December night, the first night of Hanukkah, he is arrested for
leaving a restaurant without paying. He is sentenced to community
service as an assistant referee for a youth basketball league, working
for the head referee, Whitey Duvall. Since that was not Davey's first
offence, he will be sentenced to ten years in prison if he breaks the
law again! As the days of Hanukkah go by, and Christmas draws near, the
good-natured Whitey tries to change Davey's ways, but is there any
Adam Sandler provides the voice for Davey, who looks just like him, as
well as the voices for Whitey and his sister, Eleanore. Personally, I
found Whitey's voice maybe not quite irritating, but close, and I think
I found Eleanore's voice fairly irritating. Those voices, however,
certainly didn't ruin the entire experience for me. The main problem
with "Eight Crazy Nights" is that as a comedy, it's pretty lame. I do
not recall ever laughing, and recall smiling only a couple times, one
of them being when Davey tells his car not to stay up too late. Whitey
having seizures - not funny! Whitey covered in fecal matter - not
funny! Reindeer licking ice and feces off of him - not funny! People
laughing so hard that they shoot out snot while reindeer outside laugh
so hard at the same joke that they shoot out feces - not funny! Some of
these gags put a puzzled look on my face, or grossed me out a bit! The
film is somewhat touching at times, especially around the end, and if
it weren't for that, I think I would give it a lower rating than the
already low 4.
I have no problem with the premise or animation here. Like I said, the
main problem with this film is the lame humour. I'm certainly NOT irked
by all crude, tasteless humour. Since this is a case where that kind of
humour is used in animation, I feel I should mention that "South Park"
has made me laugh hard numerous times! However, when crude humour is
not funny, it can be frighteningly bad (like when those hacks, Jason
Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer do it), and that is sometimes the case in
"Eight Crazy Nights", or if not, it sometimes comes very close! Knowing
that Jon Lovitz had a voice-over role in this film, I am reminded of
Jay Sherman, his character in the short-lived cartoon series, "The
Critic" (a good show, in my opinion), and the character's catchphrase,
"It stinks." I really think that catchphrase, though simple, is a good
one to use to describe this movie. Without a doubt, "Eight Crazy
Nights" marked a low point in Sandler's career..
