Adam Sandler's portrayal of Jill was frightening, creepy, and awful at the same time. It was so ridiculously over the top, that it failed to make any sort of positive impression whatsoever from a comedic standpoint. It was like a 90 minute SNL skit gone awry.
I'm trying to take something positive away from this film, and I just can't. Al Pacino wasn't terrible. That's about the best thing to come out of it! Katie Holmes and Adam Sandler's character had zero chemistry, and they were supposed to be husband and wife. Awful casting there.
I still give Little Nicky the nod as Sandler's worst film, but this one is RIGHT up there. Sorry for the poor descriptive detail. I'm still in disbelief from what I just watched! I can't believe I was able to make it through without turning it off. I battled through like it was the bottom of the 9th.
Here Sandler plays both Jack, a successful advertising executive trying to convince Al Pacino to do a Dunkin' Donuts television commercial, and Jill, his uber-annoying twin sister who travels with her bird, which is the only character in the cast remotely as grating as Jill. What does this film tell us about family? Nothing. This is a blight on the film industry and is nothing but an hour and a half of cinematic fingernails on a chalkboard. I cannot imagine why Pacino agreed to be in this movie, but I suppose he counts as the highlight of the film. Sandler is decent as straight man Jack, but is unbearably annoying as Jill. I seriously had a tough time getting through this one, and I have seen "Tiptoes."
I can find nothing to recommend this movie. It has a big cast of people you know, but there's no saving this Titanic twaddle from itself. This is without question one of the very worst big budget films I have ever seen and I cannot recommend it for humans or other higher primates.
In the meanwhile, Jack wants Al Pacino to be in the TV commercial for Dunkin' Donuts, but knows there is little chance that the Oscar winning star would accept the offer. But things start to seem better when, believe me or not, Al Pacino - playing a knowingly (I hope) exaggerated version of himself - fell for Jill.
It is not the film's non-existent story or countless stupid jokes that I find annoying. I like stupid jokes, but when they are done by someone like Jill, an irritating and obnoxious character, her antics are unfunny, even unpleasant. Yes, I know, as it turns out, Jill is really a woman with a kind heart, and Erin and kids like her, but Sandler's one-note performance doesn't just convince.
The only thing I find mildly amusing is Al Pacino playing himself, though it is obvious that comedy is not his forte. His energetic acting in the "Dunkaccino" part will either entertain you or make you sigh.
Directed by Dennis Dugan, "Jack and Jill" is yet another Adam Sandler-Dennis Dugan collaboration that started with "Happy Gilmore" back in 1996. There are lots of cameos - Johnny Depp and John McEnroe among others - but all those amusing cameos are not just enough to make us forget the fact that this is arguably the worst of their films.
Poor acting, script and horrible concept for a movie. I can't believe I wasted 90 minutes and $3.99 of my hard earned money on this waste of a film.
Please, save your money and NEVER SEE THIS MOVIE!
P.S. how desperate is Al Pacino for money, i mean seriously, did you see that dunkin donuts commercial at the end? HORRIFYING!!

The movie might of been better if Adam Sandler didn't play a double role. Would of been better if Sarah Silverman collaborated and played the part of Jill.Published 1 month ago by Bebop
