The plot such as it is concerns Jill the sister coming to visit her brother Jack and his family for Thanksgiving. She's only supposed to be there for a few days, but she extends her vacation time, and winds up staying almost to New Years. During that time, we get a lot of toilet humor much more than a PG-rated comedy aimed at kids needsa ton of product placements How much did Dunkin' Donuts pay to get their brand worked into the plot of the movie? And would it have been better for business if they had just stayed out of the movie all together?
Oh, and then there's Al Pacino. Yes, I said Al Pacino. Only he's not making a cameo, he's a main supporting character.
Jack and Jill
He plays a caricature of himself as a raving oddball who speaks gibberish in order to fool people he can speak other languages, and becomes inexplicably attracted to Jill when he happens to meet her at a basketball game. Jill has no interest in Pacino, but Jack's ad agency wants to hire the actor for a Dunkin' Donut campaign, so he tries to bring the two together.
When Jill further resists, Jack is forced to dress up as his sister and be seduced by Pacino. The important thing is Pacino gets the film's only laughs, because he tackles the material head-on and with full passion.
He obviously knows this material is stupid, but he gives such an energetic performance, you sometimes find yourself laughing, even if what he says isn't that funny. Say what you will about his decision to appear in this movie, but he earns every cent of that paycheck when he appears in trash like this.
The movie's just not that funny. Don't tell that to the guy who was sitting two rows behind me at my screening, though. Every tired pratfall, every loud fart that blasted on the soundtrack, and every knock to the head caused him to erupt in extremely loud fits of laughter, stomping of feet, and slapping his knees.Jack & Jill vs The World - Trailer
I wanted to ask him what he found so funny about the movie. Most of all, I wanted to be enjoying myself as much as he was. That's obviously the intention of the movie. It wants to make us laugh and forget our problems for 90 minutes or so. But it fails on both counts. My guess as to the reaction of the man sitting behind me? He's been locked away somewhere for a very long time, and has never seen a movie in his life.
Jack's son punches his Aunt Jill, and she falls off her chair. Jack, disguised as Jill, shoves and hits Al Pacino, and he retaliates.
Jill punches a bathroom attendant, who goes flying through a bathroom door. Sex Pacino makes lots of suggestive overtures toward Jill, and Felipe also flirts with her. Jill's full-figure bras and control-top panties are shown on more than one occasion for laughs.
Amanda & Jack Go Glamping () - IMDb
Jack and his wife hug and are shown in bed together, but they're just getting ready to sleep. Language "Hell," "crap," "oh my God," and insults ranging from "freak" and "annoying" to "loser" and "stupid.
Consumerism Like many of Sandler's movies, there are nonstop product placements and corporate tie-ins. The sequence on the cruise feels like an extended commercial for Royal Caribbean and its ship. Everyone uses Sony computers Sony is also distributing the film ; Pepto and Dunkin Donuts aren't just prominently featured -- the companies are Jack's clients, and fake commercials the brands are shown in the movie.
What parents need to know Parents need to know that, like all Adam Sandler movies aimed at families, Jack and Jill includes lots of potty humor and crude jokes at the expense of women who don't fit the Hollywood ideal of beauty.
