Little Nicky


"Little Nicky"... a hysterical comedy.

THIS AWKWARD and shy guy, with two bullies for elder brothers, is more interested in heavy metal music than in their thriving family business. The hilarious twist is that Little Nicky is the Devil's son and their business is Hades.

When their father decides not to relinquish his evil throne, the two ruthless and ambitious brothers, Adrian and Cassius, leave for New York, freezing Hell's gates. Since evil souls are unable to enter, the Devil starts to fall apart— literally. Now it is up to Nicky to find his rotten brothers and bring them back home before the Devil wastes away.

While the brothers are terrorising the city, introverted and inexperienced Nicky is searching for them with help from Beefy the talking bulldog, his father's old friend.

He comes across weird and wonderful people and gets confused by the strange human emotion he is beginning to feel— especially after meeting Valerie. After an odd courtship, she joins his quest along with two Devil-worshipping groupies who mysteriously appear everywhere. Closing in on his corrupt clan, Nicky finds the stakes have been raised. His brother has put a multi-million dollar price tag on Nicky's head and all of New York is on his trail.

As an explosive duel begins, nice guy Nicky unleashes his newly learned destructive powers and finally wins by tricking his brothers.

But does he have enough time to make it to Hell and back?

Adam Sandler is little Nicky in this hysterical comedy. His co-stars are Patricia Arquette, Harvey Keitel, Rhys Ifans, Tiny `Tommy' Lister, Rodney Dangerfield and Allen Covert. There are special appearances by Ozzy Osbourne and Quentin Tarantino.

Steven Brill directs the film. It is written by Tim Herlihy, Adam Sadler and Steven Brill. Produced by Jack Giarraputo and Robert Simonds, the executive producers are Adam Sandler and Robert Engelman.
