Let’s Rush To Judgment!: ‘Jack And Jill’

Hey, it’s Adam Sandler!
And Katie Holmes!
And women so big they collapse horses!
It’s safe to say that Jack And Jill does not represent the next step in Adam Sandler’s effort to be taken seriously as a leading man or a real actor. (Remember when he wanted to be a real actor?) Directed by Dennis Dugan — as were Just Go With It, I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry, You Don’t Mess With The Zohan, Grown Ups, and other classics — Jack And Jill brings Adam Sandler back to the most Adam-Sandler-y place he ever goes. The fact that there are no flatulence jokes in this trailer, however, leads me to believe that Katie Holmes perhaps had a no-flatulence-jokes clause in her contract.
