Jack and Jill (Blu-ray + UV Copy) [2012] <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Adam Sandler

Congratulations to this film for winning all the Razzie awards. For a movie that's been hugely criticised, I thought it can't be that bad, and considering it made well over $100,000,000 at the box office it's fair to say audiences do go and see Adam Sandler movies, so I went to the cinema and watched it. Being an Adam Sandler fan I was looking forward to it. I was pleasantly surprised, I enjoyed Jack And Jill. If you can get past the annoying (at times) accent from Jill and some of the silliness this is actually a funny comedy with Sandler playing his typical role, a rich man in a well paid job with a hot wife.

Kristen Bell Vs. Odette Annable and Jamie Lee Curtis Vs. Sigourney Weaver? Get ready for one heck of a hilarious showdown. You Again is written so well and you can see this through the comedy, as there is non stop laughter and a lot of cringy moments between the characters. It was hard to watch the moment when Marni meets Joanna again, and when Gail meets Ramona, the whole time I said to myself this is awkward! There are some really childish scenes that cater to younger audiences, but I still find some scenes laugh out loud. It's no masterpiece in funniness, but it does stand out, since I didn't see it in cinema I'm glad I bagged this on DVD, a brilliant laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrifying!, 10 Aug 2013
A must see movie that is so underrated, people need to see 100 Feet, and people need to see the body breaking scene where poor Ed Westwick is attacked. Frightening, extremely brutal and constantly dishing out jumpy shocks alongside a sinister atmosphere, 100 Feet is a smart and satisfying horror movie that works so well due to the small setting, all the action happens in one place and the claustrophobic feeling that Famke Janssen's character is experiencing you also feel it too. Solid performances from it's two leads, a handful of jumpy moments and gore so violent you may turn away in fear or be gobsmacked.
