Everything that’s wrong with Eddie Murphy, Kevin James, and lazy Adam Sandler movies is demonstrated in the Jack and Jill trailer. In the film, Adam Sandler is a family man upset that his twin sister is coming in to visit. We find out why when he goes to pick her up! Yowsers, is she ever a handful!
She tells him he’s chubby right to his face! TO HIS FACE! But by the end of the film, it would seem that Adam Sandler has more in common with his sister than he ever realized. ‘Cause that’s how these types of movies end. She embraces the role with all the charisma and warmth that one would expect from Mrs. Tom Cruise.
Beyond that, we get all the hallmarks of a lazy Adam Sandler movie: funny voices, his buddies in silly costumes, pointless and weird cameos (Al Pacino?), and lame 70’s classic rock.
Watch the trailer, then wonder what type of person says, “Intriguing. I’m excited for more.”
