Neutral—NOT a movie for kids! The main character is a real jerk who has a change of heart who turns nice at the end. Would have been a good family movie without the rudeness, such as a lady nicknamed triple nipple with three… or main character making pretend love to back of car… I was disappointed because my family is jewish/christian and celebrates chanuka. Good thing we didn’t bring kids.
My Ratings: [Very Offensive / 3½]

Negative—My friend and I walked out of this movie and got our money back. There is nothing in the movie that I saw funny. Christians should not see this movie all the humor is sex related and I was only in there for 20 min. What makes me mad about it kids want to see it just because it is a cartoon.

Neutral—Adam Sandler’s “Eight Crazy Nights” is “okay.” There’s nothing really offensive about it, except for all the bathroom humor and language. It’s funny at times, but gets slow here and there. Some of the music is lame too.

Neutral—I went to see eight crazy nights the Saturday that it opened. From the commercials and advertisements it looked like an extremely hilarious movie. Part of that statement is true. No, the movie is not extremely hilarious. Yes, it is the usual Adam Sandler movie and of course contains some very funny lines and scenes. This movie is a usual Adam Sandler movie so it does contain some crude/sexual humor but nothing over to offensive. The language is not that bad, though there are some words that were not necessary. This could have been a PG rated comedy if there wasn’t a few bad words and the sexual humor. I would recommend seeing this movie if you want to laugh and watch Adam Sandler animated. I would recommend this movie to ages 14 and higher.

…The morality tale is intact. It’s just encased in deer dung—literally… vulgar asides, shameless innuendo and cruel jests…
