The film as I said is a musical, and not only is the songs forced into the movie, but man are they boring, bland, annoying, and forgettable. All of them are sung by Sandler, and if you think most of them are sung by his character Davey, Whitey actually gets more songs. Yeah, if you think his speaking voices is annoying, his singing voice is worse. He actually gets 4 freaking songs! He has a Product Placement rhyme called "At The Mall"; he an gets annoying song called "Technical Foul" sung by all three Sandler characters, which triples the level of annoyance; he gets a short dream song about winning a patch called the "Patch Song" which will give you a headache, while hurting your ears; and when we get a corny emotional song sung by Davey and his love interest, Whitey kills it, with his annoying voice, and horrible jokes. Davey’s only solo song is "Davey's Song", which is really forgettable, and unfunny. Did I mention by the way that the Product Placement characters get to sing their own song? Seriously, they do, and that's when they're helping Davey, which is corny and forgettable. The film's only Chanukah song is the dance number as Sandler reforms and tries to help Whitey called "Bum Biddy", which is of course, corny and annoying. The sad part is, Sandler doesn't sing his famous "Chanukah Song" in the film. Instead it’s played during the credits, the point where I'm more than willing to turn off this horrible film.
What more can I say about this Chanukah film, everything about it sucks! It's painfully not funny; when it tries to be sad and emotional, it's not only done poorly, but feels really out of place with the films juvenile world; the characters are bland, unlikable, and annoying as hell; the majority of songs rape my ears just as bad as the Wookie's in "The Star Wars Holiday Special" (Especially Sandler's old man voice in general); the film's worship of commercialism is really cringe worthy; and seeing it all with beautiful animation, makes it worse than it already is.
