Jack And Jill Movie Review
Released : Nov. 11th, 2011
Reviewed : Feb. 29th, 2012
Genre : Comedy
Story (from Netflix) :
Adam Sandler pulls double duty as family man Jack and his overbearing twin sister, Jill, who settles in over the holidays for an extended stay. Her visit was supposed to be temporary … but now it feels painfully permanent.
Come on people, this movie really wasn’t that bad. All I heard about this is to avoid it like the plague and that it was just beyond horrible. So I went into it with a open mind expecting something beyond watchable. What I got was a nice light hearted comedy with a lot of stupid jokes. Honestly, I really enjoyed it.
Now don’t take that as me saying that by any means is it a good movie. There are many flaws. Main fact is Adam Sandler makes a nasty looking women. I thought John Travolta looked bad in “Hairspray” but Sandler looks worse. Also there are many scenes where it has Jill doing something with Jack and his wife and such in the background but you cant tell they just layered it over really badly. You can tell that from how it is that they are just standing in front of a blue screen. Now most of the humor is really just simple jokes and potty humor. That’s all Sandler ever does and it works. This movie also has a nice cast list to it including Nick Swardson, Tim Meadows, Al Pacino, and SPOILER a cameo by Johnny Depp (why’d he agree to appear in this??). Like I said though if you watch it with a open mind ready for stupid humor you’ll enjoy it. It’s worth a watch for sure.
