Jack and Jill: And It Ain’t Pretty

It’s not in my nature to talk bad about anything. I love Adam Sandler movies, but this one should not have been greenlit. There were some funny moments, but I left the movie asking myself, “What was he thinking?” Is he running out of ideas and stories? Does he have to resort to cheap laughs dressed up in drag? I give him credit for not taking himself so seriously, but there is a fine line between genius and insanity. Al Pacino makes a surprise cameo and he suffers the same fate. I’m not going to mince words. This is Adam Sandler’s and Al Pacino’s Pluto Nash.

  1. I figured that wouldn’t be a good movie. I’m bummed too because I’m a huge fan of Sandler’s earlier movies. Things have started to go downhill since Spanglish.

    I got to meet him briefly when I was in Hawaii on vacation once which was neat. I hope he makes a better film soon or he’s going to lose his fan base. -Sydney

  2. Movies like this makes you wonder how in hell do millions get spent on dubious movie projects. Surely the poor quality of the movie becomes apparent to studio execs and investors *way before* it’s released. At what point do people cut their losses?

    1. Excellent point. Who knows, when the wheels are in motion, you can’t stop or get off the ride? If you were a junior exec and you question the higher ups, maybe “you will never work in this town again”! The same thing happens when strong companies go under or Wall Street madness happens. A movie is so hard to miss that is stays in our memories longer.

  3. The movie would have been an acceptable Sandler movie if Jill had been played by a woman who could actually portray a big heart. The previous Sandler movies were enjoyable movies, but Jack and Jill is a real stinker, barely watchable. The only thing I found interesting was the background opulence of everyone around, thrown around so casually that it really feels like the big guys involved in the movie have severely lost touch with their audience and given way to sloth where they think anything they do is magical.

    1. Excellent points. Are you a professional movie critic? Movie making these days have dropped off a bit. Is it because of reality TV and the internet? Moviegoers taste have changed thus dumbing down movies as well?
