Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill


His twin sister is coming for the holidays... and it ain't pretty.

Adam Sandler ropes in some big name stars (Al Pacino, Johnny Depp, Katie Holmes) to co-star in this dress-up comedy in which Sandler plays both the family man Jack and his annoying twin sister Jill, whose short visit becomes an extended stay.

Flicks Review

“Burn this. This cannot be seen. By anyone.” This is one of Al Pacino’s final lines in Adam Sandler’s 90-minute embarrassment. It's also one of the few moments that genuinely made me chuckle only because I pictured it in a meta context.... More

All of Sandler’s worn-out gags are here: the crass toilet humour, the foreign guy with the one-liner, the weird kid whose sole purpose is to be weird. Even on a technical level the movie’s shocking, demonstrating noticeably bad editing.

Katie Holmes is non-existent as Jack’s wife while Pacino joins DeNiro in the shameless veteran actors club. However, the true annoyance of this film is Jill. She is little more than a cross-dressing Sandler doing a terrible impersonating of a Jewish Sarah Palin. Her social incompetency simply isn’t funny, just grating and exhausting to watch.Hide

As a connoisseur of bad movies, I've put myself through agonies that make root-canal without anesthetic look like kids stuff. I've sat through EVERY film Nicolas Cage has ever made and, just to prove my superheroic movie tolerance, even watched his 'Wicker Man' remake/abortion twice. So how bad could 'Jack and Jill' be, right? I mean Al Pacino's in it, lowering himself to the status of an Adam Sandler co-star, just as Jack Nicholson before him (in the insipid 'Anger Management.') Only this... More time, Al must contend with not one - but two Adam Sandlers. Sandler wrote the screenplay (doubtless in crayon on a piece of used toilet paer) and stars as both Jack and his "twin" sister Jill. His portrayal of Jill is not just an insult to women but to men - to everyone. Who ever lived. Ever. And if that weren't excruciating enough - there's Katie Holmes too. Even Johnny Depp pops up - desperate to be part of this badly acted, poorly executed bad taste marathon.
Director Dennis Dugan spewed up 'Grown Ups', 'You Don't Mess with the Zohan' and 'I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry' and now continues to vent his hatred on humanity with a film that is not so much a carwreck as Adam Sandler's very own monster motorway mash-up, in which he not only causes the horrific accident but then proceeds to take his pants down and personally take a dump on the dead and dying as they sprawl helpless in the twisted and burning wreckage.
Watching this toilet bowl of cinematic excretia, Marlon Brando's last line of 'Apocalypse Now' just kept playing in my head, over and over: "The horror... the horror..." It's bad, but not like 'The Room' - which is bad, but so bad it's funny. This? This makes crass toilet humour look like Shakespearian tragedy. 'Jack and Jill' is every moviegoers worst nightmare and every movie critics wet-dream. But its banal idiocy goes beyond mere words. I mean where do you begin? It's a comedy that isn't ever remotely funny. The script, direction, acting - everything stinks. 'Sh*t' simply fails to sum-up just how awful it is. In fact, there are only two words known to humanity that can sum up just how terrible this is:
"Adam. Sandler."

Bad acting, toilet humour to an extend that not even a 3 year old would laugh and a script so stupid that it must be a record in film history. Except for the first and the last 5 minutes.

  • More than 24 hours has passed since I watched the new Adam Sandler movie Jack and Jill and I am still dead inside. Full Review

  • A comedy that has one good joke, four strange cameos and a spirit so juvenile kids may wonder what Sandler's deal is. Full Review

  • The pic's general stupidity, careless direction and reliance on a single-joke premise that was never really funny to begin with are only the most obvious of its problems. Full Review
