Totally mediocre...

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.

The apocalypse starts here.

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 cruel and creepy, not funny.

November 11, 2011
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.

November 10, 2011
Lazy and slapdash, the work of a comedian trusting too much in his own hilariousness.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
November 10, 2011
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.

November 10, 2011
More than 24 hours has passed since I watched the new Adam Sandler movie Jack and Jill and I am still dead inside.
November 10, 2011
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.
November 10, 2011
If Pacino-on-Sandler action is your trailer's selling point, the movie better be brave enough to have Pacino bend him over. Heck, it's already doing the same to us.

I'm sorry to say that this may be Mr. Pacino's most convincing performance in years.

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.
November 10, 2011
Comedy moved on from the mid-1990s, and it's time Sandler did, too. "Jack and Jill" even gives fart jokes a bad name.

November 10, 2011
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 10, 2011
Jack and Jill is total bust, a stupefyingly unfunny and shamelessly lazy farce packed with cringe-worthy jokes and overt product placement.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4
November 10, 2011
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
November 10, 2011
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.
November 10, 2011
It is also typical in that it contains a lot of witless bathroom and ethnic humor...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 10, 2011
It's an uphill battle for Jack and Jill with this leaky pail of comic swill.
November 10, 2011
Even by sloppy Sandler movie standards, this one's a wreck - fart jokes, potty zingers and pit-stain gags.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

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.
