Jack and Jill (2011)




THE STORY

Jack Sadelstein (Adam Sandler) and Jill Sadelstein (Adam Sandler) are twins... Though they look the same, their lives and personalities are quite different from each other... Jack is a successful advertising executive at Los Angeles with two kids and beautiful wife whereas Jill lives alone in Bronx... Jack's not quite fond of Jill because of her neediness and tries the best he can to get away from her... 


THE REVIEW

Actually there's little for me to say about this movie... Whether u love it or hate it depends on what u expect from this movie...


If u loved Adam Sandler's latest past few movies - Just Go With It and Grown Ups, then u'll be laughing your ass out at the silly and slapstick jokes...

However, if u're looking for Adam Sandler at his best which is when he did The Longest Yard, The Wedding Singer, Waterboy and 50 First Dates, u would most probably be disappointed... 

Lately, Sandler's movies are all about the jokes and they lack "heart"... It's sort of he's become lazy and therefore not much have been put into his works... I miss the days when most of his movies provide not just laughs but also inspiration and emotional feed...

Nevertheless, I did have a good time watching the movie... The slapsticks are hilarious and the lack of seriousness in this movie is good for me to just sit back and relax myself...


Al Pacino was supposed to be one of the highlights in this movie... but I think he's not funny at all... His best performance in this movie is only when he danced for the Dunkachino ad... The Mexicano gardener, Felipe (Eugenio Derbex) should have been given more screen time because he's sure a lot funnier than Mr. Pacino...  Even Gary Sadelstein (Rohan Chand), is funnier than Pacino... 


ALL IN ALL

If u're looking for something silly and funny just to take ur mind off of work, then this movie is for u... However, if u're not into stupid jokes and u dont find the idea of a man dressing a woman is funny, the 90 minutes of watching this movie will be a very long one for u...


3 out 5 of stars...
