Four Preview Clips From Jack and Jill Starring Adam Sandler and Adam Sandler
Posted 11.07.11 by Ryan
There's something comforting about the consistency of Adam Sandler movies. Chances are Sandler will probably do a silly voice, some of Sandler's Saturday Night Live buddies will show up (Rob Schneider, mostly), and, most important to the studio, the movie will make an obscene amount of money.
There's no telling how Sandler's latest, Jack and Jill, will perform at the box office until it opens on Friday, but the other prerequisites seem to be in order. While Schneider is nowhere to be found, SNL alumni Tim Meadows, David Spade, Dana Carvey, and Norm MacDonald appear in the movie and Sandler does a silly voice as Jill, the obnoxious twin sister of family man Jack (also played by Sandler).
Knowing pretty much what you're gonna get can be a good thing, though Sandler movies do have a rather hit or miss quality. Four new preview clips have arrive online for Jack and Jill, which will help audiences figure out where Jack and Jill is a hit, like Happy Gilmore, or a miss, like Little Nicky.
In the first clip, Jill coerces Jack into showing off their jump rope skills. Seriously.
In the second clip, Jack discusses how to set Jill up on a date with his co-workers (Meadows and Nick Swardson).
In the third clip, Al Pacino, who plays himself in the movie, gives Jill a lesson in playing stick ball (we mean that literally). The result has dire consequences to some of Pacino's prized possession.
In the final clip, Jack wakes up Jill while she's sleeping to discover she gets the night sweats.
Jack and Jill was written by 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. Dennis Dugan, who also helmed Sandler's other 2011 movie Just Go With It, directed the comedy, which co-stars Allen Covert, Katie Holmes, and Dan Patrick.
