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. Except he's also playing his twin sister Jill, with outrageously and rather amusing results.
Katie Holmes is underused, she's just there for a bit of eye candy but I'm not complaining. Al Pacino's role is often funny but at times it feels like his part is forced into every scene, it is certainly a change from his Scarface days, although that is referenced many times in this movie. Jack And Jill has a few flaws, from some awkward moments and corny writing, but in nearly every scene there is a funny moment! It's a brightly coloured and light hearted comedy with nutty characters, smart one liners and a truck load of slapstick comedy. I liked Jack & Jill even if it is an embarrassing career role for Sandler, and a critic's punchbag.
