1 star and 14+ at Common Sense Media, 12/49 at Rotten Tomatoes

Roger Ebert, 2 stars
His comedies have included generous amounts of antisocial hostility, sudden violence, dodgy material about urination, defecation and flatulence, and a general air of defiance. A lot of people like that. But they are not the people likely to understand the Hanukkah message in "Eight Crazy Nights." And those who appreciate the message are likely to be horrified by a lot of the other material in the film. What Sandler has made here is a movie for neither audience.
Jews deserve a better Hanukkah movie than Adam Sandler’s “Eight Crazy Nights”

"Infantile and abrasive even by the standards of a Sandler vehicle," "Factor in Nickelodeon-quality animation and astoundingly cynical product placement (in a cartoon, don’t forget), and you’ve got a movie that would depress even Santa" so Eight Crazy Nights proves that it’s not worth spending Hanukah with Adam Sandler
