The life of a successful, happy ad executive (Adam Sandler) descends into chaos when his needy, passive-aggressive twin sister (also Sandler) makes her annual Thanksgiving visit.
" Totally mediocre... "
" Lazy and slapdash, the work of a comedian trusting too much in his own hilariousness. "
" There are moments in "Jack and Jill" that are genuinely funny - and, just like countless family reunions, there are moments when you can't wait for it to end. "
" The whole drag routine just isn't all that funny, and the character eases from intolerably abrasive to tolerably dumb only when it is time to shoehorn in the usual nominal life lessons. "
" Extruded from Sandler's Happy Madison filmic laugh factory, Jack and Jill makes lowbrow seem like grand opera, relying once again on fart, poop and sweat jokes to inject both yuks and yucks into the proceedings. "
" A comedy that has one good joke, four strange cameos and a spirit so juvenile kids may wonder what Sandler's deal is. "
" More than 24 hours has passed since I watched the new Adam Sandler movie Jack and Jill and I am still dead inside. "
" I'm sorry to say that this may be Mr. Pacino's most convincing performance in years. "
" Al Pacino romantically pursuing a cross-dressing Adam Sandler around a medieval castle should be stunningly surreal, so it's a not-inconsiderable failure that Jack and Jill manages only dim, desperate outrageousness instead. "
" Feels like an elementary school recess that's gone on too long, the merrymaking strained and the participants looking tired even when they're in full comic dudgeon. "
" It is indeed every bit as lousy as it looks. So kudos to the marketing department, I guess. They nailed this one. "
" The pic's general stupidity, careless direction and reliance on a single-joke premise that was never really funny to begin with are only the most obvious of its problems. "
" Comedy moved on from the mid-1990s, and it's time Sandler did, too. "Jack and Jill" even gives fart jokes a bad name. "
" The apocalypse starts here. "
" It's pretty sad if you're a comic and Al Pacino is the funniest thing in your movie. "
" It's cruel and creepy, not funny. "
" Sandler has become a good actor of late, but here he gives over most of his talents to Jill, who is so screechy, needy, and lovelorn that you can hardly blame Jack for wanting to fade into the background. "
" Jack and Jill is total bust, a stupefyingly unfunny and shamelessly lazy farce packed with cringe-worthy jokes and overt product placement. "
" It's all pretty unfunny, and leaves you too much time to wonder about other things. Like, how did this sludge ever get a PG rating? "
