JACK AND JILL

JACK AND JILL – WENT UP THE HILL AND FELL WAY WAY DOWN!!!

DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME ON THIS ONE AT ALL

We didn’t expect much from this movie to begin with. Usually when comedians start donning the drag attire, it’s a sign of desperation to salvage a career going down in flames. We were a little surprised to see that Al Pacino was in this film during the opening credits, so that peaked our interest some.

The story centers around Jack Sadelstein (Adam Sandler) who owns an advertising agency in Los Angeles and is forced to endure the holidays with his annoying fraternal twin sister, Jill(also Sandler). As Jack tries to get through the holiday, his business suddenly becomes dependent on Jill as she becomes the object of an unlikely suitor. Unfortunately, you never like Jill’s character enough to feel sorry for her. She’s annoying and obnoxious and you totally get why her brother wants her gone.

Unfortunately, this movie never really gets off the ground despite numerous celebrity cameos. Fans of prior Adam Sandler films like Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison won’t find much to laugh about in this one. It lacks the substance that great jokes are made of. The real mystery here is how did Sandler get all of these celebrities to participate in this train wreck. Don’t even waste your time at the theater on this one.

IF YOU’RE INTO THESE TYPE OF MOVIES THIS IS WORTH A NIGHT TIME FEATURE

When these type of films come out we expect to see a few things: outstanding cinematography, excellent music, awesome costumes and great acting. Well, this Tarsem Singh directed movie almost lived up to our expectations.

Theseus, a bastard born son of a peasant mother, was a trained warrior who was chosen by the gods to lead the fight against the ruthless King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke)  and his evil army. To avenge King Hyperion, Theseus would have to protect the Epirus bow which is powerful enough to release the deadly Titans who have been imprisoned deep within the walls of Mount Tartaros since the dawn of time.

If you are  into these type of movies you definitely would be entertained once the fighting begins. The 3D cinematography and music was outstanding and was the highlight of the film. Unfortunately, the costumes lacked the realistic look that these movies usually possess. This was obvious when the body armor bounced like rubber. Further, why did all the warriors fight barefoot or in sandals with the exception of one army booted warrior? Did they really have access to army boots during this era?

It’s not the best warrior movie by far, but if you like  action/fighting/battle movies, you will enjoy it.  If those movies are not your forte, save your money and check it out on DVD.
