Episode 143: Eight Crazy Nights

An Octadic of Whimsical Evenings

Hi folks. Neil here. Joining Ben and me this week is once again Kittyhawk, and we watched Eight Crazy Nights. Yes, I know Hanukkah is well behind us, but that’s okay. This movie isn’t really about Hanukkah anyway. Nor is it about Christmas. In fact, much in the same way Die Hard 2 takes place during the Christmas season, the holiday theme is merely a backdrop here. There is no holiday spirit here at all, except apparently for a push pin that somehow blew out all eighteen tires of a bus out of town. Yep, even the main character couldn’t escape this turd.

This movie is so foul that I almost turned it off.

One thought on “Episode 143: Eight Crazy Nights

  1. Finally got the chance to listen to this episode — been looking forward to it!

    Here’s my (slightly) random thoughts I jotted down while I was listening (don’t ask how I managed this while painting. There’s paint on the keyboard now).

    Emmett Otter’s Jugband Christmas is probably the best Christmas special EVER! Haven’t seen it in years, I need to find it and make my husband watch it (he *hates* muppets. They creep him out).

    You’re going to laugh, but I own Eight Crazy Nights. And I watch it occasionally. And I still kinda like it, despite it’s awfulness. Maybe because.

    Adam Sandler =/ voice actor? Agreed. 100% His characters all sound pretty much the same, and we’ve heard them a million times already.

    Elanor – troll bitch — LMAO!

    Parents’ death: The parents’ death was handled at the gymnasium, I forget which scene exactly. The flashback gave is the story that they died in a car accident on their way to his basketball game (tournament game, I think). Why did I remember that? Agreed, though, there’s no real way to connect with them or care about them.

    Lots of great points about the awfulness of this film, though. Especially how it’s not really a Hanukkah movie.

    50 first dates: HATED IT, agreed very creepy and awful. Jack & Jill: refused to watch, the premise alone was horrific!

    We cut TV in August last year. Internet only, baby! Netflix is hella cheaper. I just get irritated because there are a few things (like Space Dandy) that I don’t know if/when I’ll be able to watch.
