JACK AND JILL (PG for tasteless, suggestive material): Rather than waste my time on seeing this well discredited 90-minutes of torture, I offer samplings from some of the more tempered reviews:
"Adam Sandler playing both an ambitious ad guy and his loser female twin is a brazen high concept that provides mostly comedic lows. But Sandler fans may welcome the brainless diversion."
"Sandler's drag act as his sister Jill becomes so excruciatingly unpleasant that it inspires involuntary shudders & post-traumatic nightmares."
"It's a downhill drag."
"Not since The Love Guru have I seen a film that was such a lazy, unfunny, utter failure in entertainment of all forms."
Forgive my stereotyping when I observe that most of the people who were laughing were also the same folks generous enough to share their cell phones during the show."
"This was pretty much a chore to sit through."
"It's pretty sad if you're a comic and Al Pacino is the funniest thing in your movie."
"It's cruel & creepy, not funny."
"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."
And finally, the coup de gras: "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 Flamigos and chow down on whatever dog **** is presented to them." (Grade: F-)
