Jack and Jill Trailer Starring Adam Sandler

4 Things That Are Terribly Wrong With the Jack and Jill Trailer

Hey, remember how in Funny People Adam Sandler's character starred in a bunch of bad big-budget movies? Well, Sandler's dual-role comedy Jack and Jill, in which he plays a man and his own sister, totally seems like it could be one of those fake films. Except it's real, and it's less than spectacular. The trailer is full of lazy jokes and cliches — but before you watch, check out the four things that I've pinpointed as the most offensive elements.

  1. Katie Holmes is in this. I appreciate Holmes trying to add some comedy to her career, but why on earth she chose this movie for that purpose is beyond me.
  2. Adam Sandler doesn't need to make this movie. He's funny and certainly doesn't need the paycheck. Echoing the above sentiment: why?
  3. It's not funny. Where are the laughs? Sorry, Sandler in a wig and a dress isn't enough. They couldn't even spring for some good prosthetics?
  4. We've seen this movie before. It's called Norbit.
