Adam Sandler is laughing at us. He’s sitting in his giant tub of Grown Ups money and just…laughing. Sometimes he invites his posse to join him, consisting of Kevin James, David Spade, Rob Schneider, and Chris Rock (they’re like the Apatow Crew, except less funny). But he doesn’t need them; he’s content laughing in his tub of money all on his own. And when he has the time, he’ll film something like Jack and Jill. Come on, the man needs his bath water. But the reason Jack and Jill is so sad and pathetic is not because it looks completely terrible; it only looks really bad. But Sandler knows audiences are going to eat it up anyways. You put a guy in drag, and everybody loves it. It doesn’t matter that the film doesn’t look funny, or isn’t trying to do something creative. People are still going to see it anyways. And that’s the saddest part of all.
Official Plot Description:
Jack Sadelstein, a successful advertising executive in Los Angeles with a beautiful wife and kids, who dreads one event each year: the Thanksgiving visit of his identical twin sister Jill. Jill’s neediness and passive-aggressiveness is maddening to Jack, turning his normally tranquil life upside down.
Jack and Jill opens November 11, 2011.
