Theatrical Trailer for Jack and Jill Starring Adam Sandler and Adam Sandler
Posted 07.08.11 by Ryan
Adam Sandler has worked with a variety of co-stars over the years, but his latest co-star might be his greatest challenge, himself.
Jack and Jill is not an adaptation of the nursery rhyme, but instead stars Sandler as twins, playing both Jack, a family man, and his obnoxious sister Jill, who comes out to Los Angeles from the Bronx during Thanksgiving. A new theatrical trailer for the movie has just been released, likely to coincide with the release of The Zookeeper, which Sandler produced.
The movie's cast is filled with Sandler regulars like Allen Covert and Dan Patrick as well as Sandler-movie newcomers like Katie Holmes, who will play Sandler's wife, and Al Pacino, who will play himself.
While the trailer for Jack and Jill is the first (and only) look at the movie so far, some outlets are already claiming online that the movie is Sandler's new "career low" and that it looks like his "worst movie". Of course, that's also what was said about last year's Grown Ups, which was eviscerated by critics but went on to make more money than any of Sandler's previous movies. Clearly, he knows something we don't.
We'll all find out if Sandler has made another critically-hated, yet financially successful, movie on November 11th. Frequent Sandler collaborator Dennis Dugan, who also directed Sandler's other 2011 movie Just Go With It, helmed the movie, which was written Click screenwriter Steve Koren and long-time Saturday Night Live writer Robert Smigel, who co-wrote You Don't Mess With the Zohan with Sandler.
