* ShirtlessScene: Davey has one during a basketball game. For a man who's supposed to look like [[HollywoodPudgy Adam Sandler]], he's pretty darn [[MrFanservice ripped]].

[[caption-width-right:350:It's naughty. It's nice. It's animated.]]

''Eight Crazy Nights'' is a [[BlatantLies heartwarming family]] [[ChristmasSpecial holiday movie]] [[SarcasmMode that will bring joy and laughter to people of all ages]]... yeah, right. It's actually about a Jewish drunk in his early thirties (voiced by Creator/AdamSandler) who learns not to be such an asshole to everyone. Why should (or why shouldn't) you check it out? Well, it involves rocket farts, snowman killing, old lady melon squeezing (not what it sounds like), and that's just the first five minutes.

Added DiffLines:

** Throughout the awards, the town's behavior is appealing. When a tall kid with unnaturally thick underarm hair wins an award, the mayor loudly jokes that the kid should buy a weed-wacker for his pits. The town laughs along with this, showing that they have all the tact and maturity of middle-school delinquents.

* EasilyForgiven: '''DAVEY!''' Before the movie even starts, he's spent ''years'' being the most [[{{Jerkass}} unlikable]], [[UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist unsympathetic]] human being in town and by the third act goes far enough to finally get arrested for good. But his criminal record seems to be white washed after he [[spoiler: convinces the town to [[HeelFaceTurn be nicer to Whitey]]]].



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: There's no indication that Davey [[spoiler: does the time in jail he earned after the events of the film]]. See EasilyForgiven.

Did Davey end up going to jail or not?]]

* ProductPlacement: Easily one of the most notorious examples of this for an Adam Sander film. Not only do we get an entire subplot about Whitey's love of the shopping mall, introduced with his poem that name-drops every conceivable popular brand, as well as Davey's intervention from store logos who come to life, but none of the brands in question were asked to help fund the film for these plugs, making it less "product placement" and more "free advertisement."

To some, this came off as free advertisement, but it's actually pretty gutsy since that's illegal.

** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Davey starts to become this in the second half where he warms up to Jennifer's son, Benjamin and starts treating Whitey and Eleanore better. [[spoiler: Then in the end, he calls out the townspeople for taking advantage of Whitey.]]
* JerkassHasAPoint: Davey repeatedly says he doesn't want to talk about the night [[spoiler: his parents]] died but they go ahead and discuss it right in front of him regardless. Can you blame him for snapping at them afterward?
