The comedic actor, who's been in the game for decades, has brought out over 50 films in that time-frame, so not all of them are going to be smash hits.
That being said, Sandler's Little Nicky, is definitely one of his lowest rated films, as per the critics.
Check out the trailer below:
The flick, which came out in 2000, was up against some fierce competition at the time, such as - Meet the Parents, Scary Movie, Road Trip - just to name a few.
However, it's clear that the storyline didn't quite hit home as one would have hoped.
As far as the plot goes, Sandler (Nicky) plays the son of a devil (Harvey Keitel) who wants him to get involved in the family business, which is quite literally living in hell.
Nicky, on the other hand, decides to visit Earth with attempts to restore the balance between good and evil.
As you might expect, not everything went to plan.
A cast that included the likes of Keitel and Patricia Arquette, didn't stop the Rotten Tomatoes critics from giving it a horrid score of 21 percent.
One critic wrote: "It would be hyperbole to argue that the road to movie hell is entirely paved with Adam Sandler's crude intentions -- but the guy sure has made a heck of a start."
Another added: "Where's Sandler in all this? Lost in gimmicks that smack of desperation."
Someone else commented: "Creating perhaps his most irritating persona to date, Sandler manages to get through the entire movie with barely a single gag, save for a few uninspired chuckles."
Notably, the audience score was 55 percent - so it's not all doom and gloom.
I guess you'll be able to make your own mind up when it drops on Netflix at some point today (1 September).
The official synopsis reads: "In a perfect world, he'd be happy to head-bang in his room all day to heavy metal music.
"But no, his mom is an angel, his old man is the devil, and like all good fathers, he insists that Nicky get involved in the 'family business'.
"Nicky could think of 666 things he'd rather be doing than corrupting souls or spewing evil, but when his father's command over Hades is threatened by his bullying older brothers, it's up to unbalanced Nicky to restore the balance between Good and Evil on earth."
