What makes Jack And Jill worse than the average Sandler vehicle is Jill, who's been conceived as little more than a dude in drag, hold the jokes.

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.

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?

It's pretty sad if you're a comic and Al Pacino is the funniest thing in your movie.

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.

It is indeed every bit as lousy as it looks. So kudos to the marketing department, I guess. They nailed this one.

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.

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.

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.

Comedy moved on from the mid-1990s, and it's time Sandler did, too. "Jack and Jill" even gives fart jokes a bad name.

A comedy that has one good joke, four strange cameos and a spirit so juvenile kids may wonder what Sandler's deal is.

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.

But no, Jack has to be an abrasive jerk to his sister so that, in the final act, he can learn his lesson and embrace his twin and blah blah blah fart joke.

Left to his own devices, Sandler reverts to his worst, laziest habits. He forgets that what might have been tolerable in a three-minute "Saturday Night Live" skit becomes excruciating when stretched to feature-film length.

It is what it is - and, more importantly, exactly what Happy Madison fans want it to be: something unruly, stupid and sort of funny, in the same way - and to exactly the same extent - that passing gas is funny.
