'Jack and Jill' Bombs With Critics: Worst Adam Sandler Comedy Ever?
"Jack and Jill"
"Jack and Jill"
In "Jack and Jill," Sandler plays both himself (Jack) and his 40-something twin sister (Jill). Add Katie Holmes to the mix -- who seems to be the kiss of death for modern movies -- and you've got a total disaster.
This 2010 buddy flick was a box office hit but failed to delight critics. The Daily Telgraph compared it to "being sat on by all your least favorite school bullies."
"I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry"
As The Wall Street Journal put it, this 2007 flick about straight men who become domestic partners "manages to insult gays, straights, men, women, children, African-Americans, Asians, pastors, mailmen" and more.
New York magazine called this 2003 Sandler-Jack Nicholson pair-up "the kind of coarse comedy where a fart serves as a punch line."
As The Guardian put it, this 2002 remake was "so bad it will make your gums bleed. Orphanage fires are funnier."
The 1996 golf comedy has its fans, but as Variety put it, "There are about three minutes of funny material in Happy Gilmore, and pretty much all of them are in the trailer."
In "Jack and Jill," Sandler plays both himself (Jack Sadelstein) and his 40-something twin sister (Jill Sadelstein). Add Katie Holmes to the mix -- who seems to be the kiss of death for modern movies -- and you've got a total disaster on your hands.
"If not for a few sorta funny scenes with Al Pacino (playing himself), this would be the worst film of the year," says E! Online, giving the film a "D" grade. "As it is, it's merely one of the worst films of the year."
Moviefone goes one step further, calling Jill Sadelstein "the epitome of sadness" -- a lonely 42-year-old woman with severe gastrointestinal problems.
The film -- which currently has a 2 percent rating on RottenTomatoes.com, is replete with "poop jokes" and even a "gas explosion" from Mexican food. But if you're spending $10 to see an Adam Sandler movie, that's what you're paying for, right?
With the exception of "The Wedding Singer," some might argue that Sandler hasn't released a good comedy since his "Billy Madison"/"Happy Gilmore" days. True Sandler haters would say he's NEVER put out a good comedy. Put your snob hat on and let us know: What's the worst Adam Sandler comedy ever made?
