Jack and Jill(2011)
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.

“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

Jack and Jill

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:
