Also featuring Shaq’s best performance since ‘Kazaam’.

Columbia Pictures has dropped the trailer for Adam Sandler’s latest, Just Go With It. It’s funny how that title encapsulates pretty much what I do with all of Sandler’s movies now, because it’s so exhausting to fight it anymore.
If you've ever wanted to see Adam Sandler in drag, his next film Jack and Jill will give you plenty. Sandler plays a man and his twin sister. Yep, it's come to that, and even Al Pacino and Katie Holmes are joining in on the "fun."
This inevitable failure with the critics but success at the box office is being directed by long time Sandler collaborator Dennis Dugan. He directed Sandler in his last P.O.S. Grown Ups that went on to make 264 million at the worldwide box office. So up my nose with a rubber hose for bagging on their team. They make money hand over fist. You can check out the film in 2011 if you Sandler in a wig makes you smile. (Collider)
Shaq will be making a cameo as himself in Adam Sandler's new film Jack & Jill. The recently-aquired Boston Celtics center is no stranger to playing Shaq in films. In fact, I imagine he prefers it to a genie or Iron Man rip-off superhero. Shaq has played Shaq in CB4, Good Burger, He Got Game, After the Sunset, The Kid & I, The House Bunny, and When in Rome. No one captures the essence of Shaq like Shaq can, which is why Sandler came to him for the Shaq role in his new comedy.
Regarding the film, Adam Sandler plays twins and one of them is a girl. Do I really need to go into anymore detail or have your eyes permanently rolled into the back of your skull? Shaq joins Katie Holmes and Al Pacino, who have already agreed to take a check for appearing in this inevitable sh*t sandwich. And don't get all pissed at me about Sandler. I used to love the guy in Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison, but Grown Ups really took a toll on my emotional psyche. Never have I wanted an actor to devolve so badly and return to speaking gibberish.

Good news for people who like Adam Sandler comedies (you know who you are). Katie Holmes and Al Pacino are in talks to join Sandler's new film, Jack and Jill.
Considering that their film credits include The Godfather, Glengarry Glen Ross, and Batman Begins, Holmes and Pacino make an impressive pair. But not nearly as impressive as the pair Sandler has lined up to write and direct the film, Steven Koren and Dennis Dugan. Their film credits include such classics as Evan Almighty, Grown Ups, and You Don’t Mess with the Zohan. Holy crap!
What the hell happened to Adam Sandler's movies? Back in 1995, I remember watching Happy Gilmore after school and laughing my ass off. But now, fifteen years later, it seems like all of his projects are geared toward 12-year olds. What changed? I can't wrap my head around it. (/Film)
