A man learns about life and love from someone who has only so much of each to spare in this romantic comedy-drama. Jack (Freddie Prinze Jr.) is an advertising executive in his early Thirties who has grown jaded before his time; he devotes his life to his work but doesn't believe in it, and is trapped in a cycle of habits and routines. One day, Jack meets Jill (Taryn Manning), a beautiful young woman who clearly has no idea how to get around New York; Jack helps give her directions and is soon

Blind to the fact that it should be rising up against its own formulaic kind.

Parise no doubt intends the pic's attention to the disease -- plus animal adoption and fair trade coffee -- to be socially enlightening, but it feels suspiciously like sympathy-mongering.

More farce might have served the film well; as Parise draws from a playbook of medical melodrama and romantic-comedies clichés, her moral about living outside the box becomes harder and harder to swallow.

...ultimately establishes itself as an affable endeavor that benefits substantially from the charismatic work of its two leads.

Achieves the holy trinity of painful earnestness, combining cute animals, sick teenagers and an idealistic belief in love and goodness that's actually deceptively judgmental.

Written, directed, acted-in and produced by Parise, she's proven her creds as a one-woman employment agent. But, by now, she should be picking up that directing is a weak spot.

There's an overwhelming and quite repellent amount of gloss applied to the finished product, yet underneath it all are many scenes of honest emotional confession, distributed through wonderful atypical performances.

Considering the talent assembled, the only audience draw here is the prospect of getting out of the rain.

Audience Reviews for Jack and Jill vs. the World

Didn't mind this one. Harmless piece of fluff. I didn't buy Freddie and Taryn as a couple at all though. I actually don't mind her as an actress, but she does seem a little brassy for this role. Having said that, she is very good in it as is Freddie.

Typical FPJ movie...he's just not a very good actor. Tarryn Manning is actually pretty bad too. Some parts were cute/funny, but it was blah for the most part.

An interesting movie with a good story plot. A bit on the quirky side, although it lacks a bit of chemistry between the two. Interesting characters, but the two appear more as friends than lovers. Not bad. It's great to see Freddie Prinze Jr. in a movie like this again. An enjoyable character. Phenomenal music.
