Holiday-a-Thon #12 Adam Sandler’s Eight Crazy Nights (2002)

Eight crazy nights posterOkay then, what can I say about this movie…. well, for starters, it didn’t really make sense to me. A Christmas movie that’s actually about Hanukkah that’s actually about redemption that’s actually a goofy way of spoofing Mr. Magoo? Yeah, that’s pretty much what Adam Sandler’s Eight Crazy Nights is. At least that’s what I took away from it anyway. Oh yeah, it’s a musical as well!

It does bring some Christmas feelings, with the animation and style of it all, but the one thing that kept me from really enjoying this movie (and I’m sure I would’ve enjoyed the crap out of it) was that dang music. Why did they have to sing so much? Yeah I get that it’s a plot device and a “clever” way of moving the story forward, but I get enough animated musicals from Disney. I’m not buyin’ it! I think, however, that because of the musical tangents embedded in this film, it is a perfect movie to be playing in the background at any holiday gatherings like Christmas parties and what not. Definitely a background-flick, but it doesn’t even come close to my Christmas Top5.

Tomorrow, I take a look on not only Miracle on 34th Street (the 1994 remake) but also at the 1999 Swedish classic In Bed with Santa, so don’t forget to tune in again tomorrow, but until then….


About hanktango

This is not a serious movie review-blog. I do not review movies in a fashion that certified critics would. I think about stuff when I watch movies, and then write about those thoughts I had during the movie. I sometimes also think about other stuff related to movies, like castings, sequels and a whole bunch of other stuff. Sometimes, I even think about video games and then write about that. The only thing that's really specific to my writing, is that I write to you in the same way I would talk to you about all this stuff. So please, enjoy my writings, and if you were to get offended by anything, I would suggest you unravel that bunched up pantyhose you have stuck up your butt and stop being so sensitive, because honestly... that's Your problem, not anyone elses. Thank you! View all posts by hanktango
