Little Nicky [VHS] 
Nicky (Adam Sandler) is the son of the Devil. But he's also a lazy, metal-head slob, more interested in listening to music than helping in his family's demonic business. However, when his two older brothers branch out on their own and hatch a plan to transform Earth into the new Hell, it comes down to Nicky to save the day. Trouble is, he's never been out of the house before, let alone done anything that involves exercise or brain power.
In Little Nicky, Adam Sandler plays the sweetest of three sons of Satan (Harvey Keitel), who's got to go to Earth and retrieve his nasty, power-hungry brothers lest they take over Hell and make it a thoroughly evil place. As with Sandler's other films, this weird premise (based oh-so-loosely on King Lear) is just an excuse to trot out a hodgepodge of comic bits and cameo performances. Admittedly, a lot of the jokes don't work (there was no need to repeat the one about shoving a pineapple up Hitler's ass) but the ones that do tend to be more memorable than the ones that don't, making for a pretty funny movie, when all is said and done. Sure, it's hard to overcome Sandler's speech impediment du jour, not to mention that romantic subplot with Patricia Arquette but it can be done by focusing on the brilliant cameos by Regis Philbin, Reese Witherspoon, Ozzy Osborne, and Henry Winkler (especially when he's covered with bees), as well as one of the funniest uses of a scene from De Palma's Scarface in years. Supporting Sandler throughout are two very funny heavy metal disciples and a bulldog named Beefy (voiced by Robert Smigel, the man behind Triumph the Insult Comic Dog). And, in an almost unrecognisable cameo, that's Clint Howard as the cross-dressing fetishist named "Nipples".--Andy Spletzer, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Actually this film is more of a comedy, with the likes of Hitler getting a pineapple shoved up his butt, a bald goon growing boobs on his head (and ends up having to wear a bra on his head)and who could ever forget that annoying talking dog, not to mention Satan falling apart?
I have given this film five stars, but to be honest, I've given it 100000000 stars. It is just that good. If you want to have your side hurting with laughter, buy this. I promise you will enjoy it.
An enjoyable film start to finish!
There are some very memorable moments-like that 'scarface' moment or even when he sleeps. (people who have seen the film know what I mean!) And there are some very funny characters, like Sandler himself and the pair of rockers who worship him.
Rhys Ifans is particularly good as Adrian.
For anyone with a slightly off-the-wall sense of humour or a taste in the rarer breeds of film, this movie will be a sure fire hit.
However, if you prefer more traditional genres, look elsewhere.
This action closes the portal filtering sinful souls to Hell and causes Satan to begin withering away.
He must send his most weak but beloved son, Little Nicky, to Earth to return his brothers to Hell.
Can Nicky learn his way around Earth and round up his brothers in time to save Satan....
This is the point in Sandlers career when one of his movies actually failed to set the box office alight. It's not surprising when you watch it, it rarely makes sense, but is still very funny.
It's as if Sandler has made his up to now greatest hits and got all of the funny people from previous movies and whacked them all into this.
The story is simple but is really put on to the back burner in order to provide the audience with a slew of dodgy CGI, funny cameos and even funnier scenarios.
Some of the jokes don't stick, but for every Dana Carvey, there is Clint Howard rubbing his nipples.
So all in all, it's not really a film, just a lot of funny moments surrounding a silly mission.
But because it's so insane, it's laugh out loud funny.
Little Nicky it highly amusing I love all the characters and its so!!! Funny that I could watch it over and over again and still laugh every time

I bought this film purely for nostalgia. It's extremely silly and Adam Sandler is again playing a loveable loser!
Gets a bad wrap but i'll always enjoy it.
