Little Nicky

Little Nicky ★★★½

"What's happened to you, Regis?!"

I've long thought Adam Sandler's films were at their best, or at least their funniest, when leaning into the absurdity that is a constant undercurrent in all of them, and while this may or may not be the most absurd work he's done (the sheer cartoonish wackiness of Zohan gives it a major run for its money), its high concept gives him the opportunity to try out some pretty inventive and fun gags. A shame this was such a flop as I do think I prefer this version of Sandler to his slightly watered-down everyman persona.
