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.

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.

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

Adam Sandler has succumbed to the Eddie Murphy syndrome. He's afflicted with the belief that we can't get enough of him.

How will future generations judge us for the huge box-office love we've shown Adam Sandler over the years?

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

Al Pacino is just about the lone standout in this shamelessly unfunny farce, which sees Adam Sandler give a one-note performance despite tackling two roles.

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?

Fetching a pail of water would be more entertaining than watching this torture.

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.

Jack and Jill needs less Sandler, more Pacino.

... the ultimate monument to gaucherie ... Pacino manages a few hard-earned gasps as he grovels on all fours after Jill. Needless to say, this is no 'Tootsie.'

It's front-loaded with enough cameos from the likes of Regis Philbin and Drew Carey to sink most crappy comedies, and, indeed, this one finally makes it to an actual pleasure cruise, minus the pleasure.

It's better than Bucky Larson... just barely, but it is.

Not since Max Baer donned ringlets and petticoats to portray Jethro's sister, Jethrine Bodine, on 'The Beverly Hillbillies' has a drag act been as ghastly as the one perpetrated here by Adam Sandler.

Aimed at the kids but provides a few chuckles for the adults too
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Unpleasant even by Sandler's usual standards, it's easily the star's worst film. And it co-stars Al Pacino. (It's his worst film, too.)

One of the last lines by Al Pacino in the film is, "Burn this." I agree.

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?

A clear sign that Sandler and director Dennis Dugan aren't even trying anymore, safe in the knowledge that fans will emulate Divine in John Waters' Pink Flamingos and chow down on whatever dog **** is presented to them.
