Bottom Line: I enjoy, to varying degrees, movies like BILLY MADISON, HAPPY GILMORE, THE WEDDING SINGER, BIG DADDY, FIFTY FIRST DATES and I’ll even admit to THE WATERBOY – but this bumbling, clunky, lazy, embarrassing, ridiculous, preposterous and unfunny colossal waste of time is easily one of the worst movies made in decades. It’s a sort of sick, twisted and not-to-elaborate Hollywood hoax where one of comedy’s biggest kings throws cinematic excrement at the screen for 93 minutes and hopes we’ll laugh. Hopefully JACK AND JILL will fall down and break Sandler’s box office crown.
Starring: Adam Sandler, Katie Holmes and Al Pacino
Directed by: Dennis Dugan (HAPPY GILMORE, BIG DADDY and GROWN UPS)
Running time: 93 minutes
Story: Jack and Jill focuses on Jack Sadelstein (Adam Sandler), a successful advertising executive in Los Angeles with a beautiful wife and kids, who dreads one event each year: the Thanksgiving visit of his identical twin sister Jill (also Adam Sandler). Jill's neediness and passive-aggressiveness is maddening to Jack, turning his normally tranquil life upside down. Katie Holmes plays Erin, Jack's wife. -- (C) Sony Pictures
