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.
