  • What's special about the movie is how totally it believes in itself as a musical. The tunes, co-written by Sandler and a bunch of his pals, take on rock opera and traditional Jewish folk music with boyish exuberance. show more

  • An appallingly tedious Hanukkah comedy that must have bubbled up from the Porta Potti of his subconscious.

  • Mazel tov, Adam, for having three movies released in five months. You should maybe spend more time on the next one? show more
