''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 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.

!!Tropes:
* AdaptationExpansion: Whitey is based on a one-shot character from Sandler's album ''Stan and Judy's Kid''. (He also appears in ''Film/LittleNicky'', played by Creator/DanaCarvey.)
* AlterKocker: Eleanore.
* AnimatedMusical: Duh.
* AntiChristmasSong: "Davey's Song".
* BrickJoke: Davey picks on the fat kid in his team, telling him to wear a bra next time he comes on the court. We next see him at the mall trying on a bra in a changing stall.
* ButtMonkey: Whitey, [[spoiler:[[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments until the ending]]]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Eleanore is ten pounds of ass-kicking in a five-pound bag. See the part when she's confronted by [[spoiler:the man who stole her Liz Taylor wig as a child]].
* ButThouMust: A rare non-videogame example. Before Davey [[spoiler: could leave the city on the bus all of the tires pop right in front of the place where the patch ceremony is being held.]]
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Whitey isn't exactly normal, but his sister Eleanore makes him look sane.
-->Ahh, a burglar! Take what you want, but please don't chop my legs off!
* CoolOldGuy: Whitey.
* DisneyCreaturesOfTheFarce: The deer.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: [[spoiler:Had Davey not got the town to acknowledge of how much of a jerk they've been to Whitey and what a service he did to the town, they wouldn't have given Whitey the recognition he deserved and Davey wouldn't be off the hook for the break-in]].
* EasilyForgiven: '''DAVEY!''' Before the movie even starts, he's spent ''years'' being the most [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk 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]]]].
* FreudianExcuse: The reason why Davey is such a {{Jerkass}}, especially during the winter holidays is that [[spoiler: his parents were killed in a car crash during that time.]]
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Combined with MushroomSamba (Whitey's drunk during this) and done by ''product placement'' of all things.
* GoshDarnItToHeck: From "Technical Foul."
--> '''Davey''': Ohhhh, this is such bull-''shit''!
--> '''Whitey''': In this house, we say bull ''spit''!
* HookHand: "I wonder if that guy ever wiped his ass, with the wrong hand?!" "Yes..."
* [[IAmSong "I Am" Song]]: The first song in the movie, "Davey's Song" has Davey singing about how much he hates the holidays while causing mischief through the town.
* IGotBigger: One of the awards at the All-Star Banquet is for the biggest growth spurt, from 4 foot 2 inches to [[UpToEleven six foot five.]]
* InTheStyleOf: The film's animation design is amazingly similar to the style used in another animated movie, ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant'', as most of the animation crew worked on both movies.
* InkSuitActor: Creator/AdamSandler... ANIMATED!
** Specifically, they based Davey off of pictures of Sandler when he was in his (very early) twenties.
** Most, if not all, of the characters played by fellow SNL alumni are this.
* IWantSong: The second song, where Whitey sings about his hopes for the All-Star Banquet.
* {{Jerkass}}: Davey.
** 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?
* JerkassRealization: During Davey's WhatTheHellTownspeople speech, the folks realize how mean they've been by taking advantage of Whitey and try to repent.
* KarmaHoudini: The basketball player who sets Davy's trailer on fire as revenge for beating him in a game of basketball.
* MultiBoobage: "Even Mrs. Selman with the one extra breast!"
* MusicalisInterruptus: "And my trailer's [[IncendiaryExponent caught on fire...]] [[OhCrap FIRE?!]]"
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler:[[ShamingTheMob All of the townspeople]]]]. IN SONG!
* ProducePelting: Working as a youth basketball referee, Davey [[TemptingFate challenges the crowd to throw things at him]] [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor and he gets his wish.]] The court becomes littered with concessions in no time.
* ProductPlacement: The first scene at the mall has Whitey name-dropping every popular brand name and specialty store imaginable, ''in rhyme'' no less, and Davey's intervention is sung by the store logos who come to life. What makes this especially notorious is that, according to [[WordOfGod the filmmakers]], 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."
** Could have been worse. A deleted scene featured Whitey ''singing a song about the mall''!
* 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]].
* SingingSimlish: The chorus to the song "Bum Biddy," which is a parody of ''nigunim'', a series of melodies accompanied by nonsense syllables sung in Jewish religious services.
* SoUnfunnyItsFunny: "Knock-knock." "Who's there?" "Dontcha." "Dontcha who?" "Don'tcha wish I wouldn't have gone to the hardware store so that I could've come up with a better joke this year?"
* SpontaneousChoreography: It's to be expected from a movie that's basically a series of musicals.
* StartOfDarkness: Davey's descent to a life of drinking and jerkassery began [[spoiler: because his parents died on Hanukkah]].
* ToiletHumor: A fair bit throughout. For instance, a deer "projectile shits" from laughing so hard. There's also Whitey's port-a-potty ride. And when he gets frozen just afterward by Davey hosing him down, he's cleaned up by the deer... and one turns to grin at the camera with crap in its teeth.
* {{Transsexual}}: The mayor's wife. Though she looks more like a very obvious {{Crossdresser}}.
* TwoScenesOneDialogue: Or in this case, multiple scenes all singing in chorus.
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: Davey discovers his Childhood Friend and sweetheart, Jennifer, got married (though now divorced) and had a son that he bonds with.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: "See anything?" "Just some deer doing a pyramid."
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Said several times about Davey.
* VillainProtagonist: Davey. [[spoiler: He gets better by the end.]]
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: There's no indication that Davey [[spoiler: does the time in jail he earned after the events of the film]]. See EasilyForgiven.
* WhatTheHellTownspeople: During the All-Star Banquet, [[spoiler: the Dukesbury All-Star Patch goes to Tom Balthazar for his generous donation for a new scoreboard. Davey goes into song how Whitey should have won for his dedication to the community.]]
* XRaySparks: In the song where everyone is singing about how mean they've been to Whitey throughout the years, this happened to Whitey when he opted to be the TV antenna during a thunderstorm.
