Relentlessly witless.

Jack and Jill is an ill-advised, too long Saturday Night Live skit gone wrong. It's a cartoon. It's a way for all involved to pad their pockets and a way for Sandler to keep his friends employed.

Burn this. This cannot be seen. By anyone.

If you're a lover of slapstick and find men dressing (very badly) as women amusing, this may hold your attention.

Jack and Jill is mental destruction-a collision of half-baked comedy sketches, violent potty humor, shrouded racism, shotgun cameos and unapologetic product placement.

Sandler tends to make films that tend to split moviegoers into two camps: those who consider him hilarious, and those who think he's a fart-joke man-child.

a film that may be remembered as one of the worst of the Wedding Singer actor's career.

Why not go to your nearest hardware store, exchange your admission fee for a pot of emulsion, and watch that dry instead?

The worst representation of Jews on screen since Jud S.

How much did they pay Pacino to do this? Four million dollars? Ten million? Who knows. But let's be very clear straight up: this is not Pacino's Being John Malkovich.

So unforgivably, soul-destroying bad it'll have you wishing Pacino had made Righteous Kill 2 instead.

There is so much bizarre imagery in Jack and Jill, Adam Sandler playing his own twin sister being the least of it... Are we sure Dennis Dugan isn't just the nom-de-plume used by David Cronenberg when he's feeling particularly playful?

HEY LOOK, IT'S A CELEBRITY CAMEO! HEY LOOK, IT'S A CELEBRITY CAMEO! - See how annoying that is? Adam Sandler doesn't.

This was pretty much a chore to sit through. (Parental Movie Review also available)

No matter how difficult or painful it might be, Adam Sandler's closest friends really need to do the respectable and humane thing and sit him down for an intervention.

Even by sloppy Sandler movie standards, this one's a wreck - fart jokes, potty zingers and pit-stain gags.

Hasn't Al Pacino heard "Adam Sandler Sucks" before now?

Katie Holmes, on a rare furlough outside the Scientology Celebrity Center, mostly stands around and looks confused - maybe she caught a peek at the script?

Hastily assembled, uneven and severely lacking in charm and laughs, Jack and Jill is one of Sandler's weakest outings to date. Which is saying something.

Full Review | Original Score: 2/10

The good news is that Sandler is marginally better in drag than he is playing himself.
