The International Trailer for Sandler's JACK & JILL will strain your ability to love ELO to the breaking point!

Hey folks, Harry here...   Remember A CLOCKWORK ORANGE.   You know that chair they strapped Alex in, the horrible imagery they put before his unblinking eyes?   But how the particularly painful part was the use of Ludwig aurally.   Here - with JACK & JILL - the most unbelievably bad idea in recent film history - a trailer that I can't beieve exists, though it isn't even the first time.   Right now - ELO makes me sick.   I love ELO.   But whoring out to this shit?  Disco is Dead.   Adam Sandler finally killed it.  Melodramatic?  I don't think so.   In particular.  Al Pacino.   Last night I watched the beautiful Blu-Ray for SCARFACE - and this used to be one of our greatest actors.  Now he wants to fuck Adam Sandler in a dress.   The affront to my senses is...  too much to bare alone, so I share this apocalypse with you.   Don't hate me.   I just need to confirm that what I saw was real - and not a fevered nightmare.  Watch if you dare...

    by fullrotor

    Yeah, this is a shit trailer for what definitely looks like a shit movie. Which, yes, happens to have an ELO song as the background for the second 50 seconds of its sub-two-minute running time. Which, if you have any sense at all, you will watch ONCE, if that. THAT'S really what jumps out at you? You can't listen to ELO now after that 50 seconds? Really? C'mon.

    Sandler isn't an idiot

    by BackwardGalaxy

    I'm sorry. This is ridiculous. Sandler is not a total freaking moron. If anyone knows real comedy, it's someone like Sandler. He knows what's up. There's no way he's proud of that crap. How the hell does he sleep at night when this exists? I mean, is this a gotta eat thing? Is he living in a mansion he can no longer afford?

    by Col. Tigh-Fighter

    I'm actually a lot more open-minded than most of you fuckers (I once used to post under Easily Pleased, as I could see some good in everything). But that was surely the most hateful trailer I've seen in ages! Every lame cliché under the sun, and it doesn't even look like it was shot well, with all that standing directly left and right of each other shit! Fuck, the Matrix sequels showed more skill in that sort of thing and it was about 10 years ago. Truly everything bad about cash-in Hollywood was present in that trailer

    i had to fight my better judgement to just walk away. once i saw the same setup as the old trailer- (the airport meet) i just stopped it. i should have stopped when they set up the trailer with that saccharine family comedy music along with the image of the 'everyday' family's mansion home pan-down shot.

    by Zombiana_Jones

    A LOT. Came out my nose, but the pain that is this trailer beats that discomfort, hands down. Visible tripe...It'll make a billion dollars. Humanity has no hope, I'm going to start praying to our Dolphin overlords while there's still a chance.

    The Ednless Hilarity of Watching Adam Sandler in a Dress

    by John

    I swear to fucking Christ each time I come to this site Hollywood tops itself with an even bigger shitburger than the day before. Adam Sandler just needs to crawl away and die now. Seriously. It hurts seeing Al Pacino making a cameo in this thing.

    by Andrew Coleman

    It just doesn't seem real. Adam Sandler when he lets someone else take control usually works. When he and his friends make a movie it sucks horribly.

    It could be one of two things though. Knowing all you will be watching it and imagining your reactions, or The weed I just smoked may have made me even dumber, or it could be both. Either way I liked Pacinos Oscar line.

    by DrBathroomMD

    The kind of thing that Sandler has done in the past but more ridiculous. He was poking fun at himself in that movie. Now it seems like he still hasn't learned.

    interesting that he'll make films that are worse than those

    by IWasInJuniorHighDickhead

    he'd parodied in his own films.<P> Never understood what made him so popular, but I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for a while. So far as I can tell, he adopts a stupid voice and half-bothers to ad-lib shit. Thought he'd strike for semi-respectability after Punchdrunk. Almost respect him for going so far toward Idiocracy.

    Dang it Bobby, it's all toilet sounds!


    Is it just me or is every Adam Sandler character these days a successful rich guy living in a mansion with a hot younger wife and precocious kids? Look, I don't give a shit if he just wants to make a load of really expensive home movies with his buddies but does he really have to release them to the general public every time?

    Why Whine About ELO In This Shitty Trailer?

    by Partyslammer

    The song (Don't Bring Me Down) was recorded way back in 1979 for the album "Discovery" which most ELO fans regard as the big turning point downwards in the band (actually leader Jeff Lynne who fronted and wrote all the music much like Trent Reznor did with Nine Inch Nails). Jeff Lynne has basically been retired for decades except as a occasional producer and he probably doesn't give a shit who he licenses his old songs to anymore as long as he collects a few bucks. Pacino is the guy who comes off looking like a desperate stooge in this trailer. Adam Sandler just looks (and acts) as terrible and pathetically unfunny as he always has so it's not like any shock there.

    You'd think it but...

    by CherryValance

    Sorry but that made me LMAO. I don't really like that ELO song. So I wouldn't have cared anyway but that trailer looked fine to me. And so what if Al Pacino isn't superficial? *snort* I think you over-reacted. But if you still feel bad just pop XANADU in and that'll make it all better. XD btw, I love that Sandler has people play themselves. To this day, I still say, whenever some doesn't get it, "See, Billy Idol gets it" XD

    by Angry_Charlie

    I've learned to enjoy the bad movies sometimes. This is so ridiculous it may be funny, like it's a parody of itself. However, something like Mr. Popper's Penguins looked like shit. It tried to be something it wasn't - serious. Jack & Jill can't exist without knowing what it is - just like Arnie and Devito in Twins. By all account, that idea doesn't work either - UNLESS, it knows it doesn't work. Jack & Jill won't be awful - if you know how to enjoy the right parts of it, that is.

    It's known a s"Geek Fever"

    by thecheesegrommit

    One geek bashes something and it spreads to other geeks at an alarming rate. Only highly resistant Geeks, those with the independent strain of the geek gene are safe to make up their own minds. That said I did roll my eyes when "Jill" turned around for the big reveal but I laughed at quite a few moments. And Harry, Pacino can't just play the same ol' characters forever. Some actors like to try new things and have some fun. If you didn't laugh at the self referential Academy award joke then I would make the argument that you sir have no funny bone. Good day to you.

This is an artifact from a terrible, terrible past. That said, I laughed throughout the trailer. Not because it was funny. Because it defies sense. I can't think of a worse idea for a movie. I almost want to see it. Just to verify that it actually exists.

    by Trancer

    Until now, the revenue model has been that the audience pays to see a movie. This is clearly the beginning of a new approach, where the audience is paid to sit through a movie. The only problem is that the Federal Reserve couldn't print enough money to get more than a few thousand people to sit through this fucking travesty. This may be the first movie in history to have a negative box-office. Heath Ledger dies of an accidental prescription drug overdose, and this talentless fuck is still wasting oxygen?

    What is the matter with you?

    by MikeCSVU

    It's a harmless family comedy, not aimed at the so called writers (who don't know the difference between bear and bare) who contribute to this site. I think the main problem is that this site is so devoid of any actual news it can break, because it's competitors left it in their dust a long time ago, that they'll put any old shit up just to try and generate some talk back traffic/page impressions/ad revenue. Seriously guys, take a look at this site. It may have looked good back a decade ago but jeez. You can't even embed video properly without spilling over columns, no social network compatibilty other than a broken facebook login. But even a makeover isn't going to change the fact that your content is poor. News that most have read elsewhere and a few film reviews here and there. Some of your writers are good but there's such a dearth of real content here.

I think the main problem is that this site is so devoid of any actual news it can break, because it's competitors left it in their dust a long time ago, that they'll put any old shit up just to try and generate some talk back traffic/page impressions/ad revenue. Seriously guys, take a look at this site. It may have looked good back a decade ago but jeez. You can't even embed video properly without spilling over columns, no social network compatibilty other than a broken facebook login. But even a makeover isn't going to change the fact that your content is poor. News that most have read elsewhere and a few film reviews here and there. Some of your writers are good but there's such a dearth of real content here.

    I have to agree 100% with mikecsvu

    by Astronut

    In addition, it would be nice if I didn't have to wait like, 3 minutes for a page to load when I'm viewing it on my iPhone. And when I post here using my phone, I have to click on the subject field twice and exit twice before any text registers on screen. It's a mess. I doubt Harry or anyone else here running the site even gives a shit. A shame because I do like coming here.

  • Except it's actually real.... Fuck.

    Soon To Be The #1 COMEDY IN AMERICA!

    by Graphix67

    "Couldn't stop laughing..." "Two Thumbs Up..." "Double your pleasure with two Adam Sandlers..." are just a sample of some of the reviews you will be reading after this premieres and then proceeds to bitch-slap the competition into submission at the box-office... MARK MY WORDS!

    There be lots of drama queens in the house. For the record, this trailer is shit. The film probably will be too, but watching the trailer doesn't make me throw up, faint or cause my eyes to be washed in bleach. That's just drama queen bullshit. It's a shit trailer to a shit film. That is all.

    Not too bad...

    by vicmackey1268

    How many of Sandler's stuff actually has ever looked way did I EVER think that the previews for 90% of his movies looked like they'd be remotely funny... Billy Madison--funny for its time but I hate watching it now, mostly cuz im not a stoner or loser or 12 anymore Happy Gilmore---ok, still funny, but when it came out I didn't really think the previews looked good fast forward to Waterboy--horrible looking, just dumb, but not thaaaat bad of a movie Big Daddy---actually probably my favorite trailer for any of his films, mostly cuz there were bigger life lessons in it. EVERYTHING SINCE---ya, you get the idea. Bottom line, of course the movie looks like crap, but ELO was barely in the trailer and if Al Pacino had been in decent stuff recently I'd feel bad for him, but nope, he makes the same sh*t as DeNiro now so really, seeing him in this doesn't surprise me at's hoping Killer Elite is ok so I can at least get the glimmer that one of these guys is still sane.

    Supporting Cast

    by Geoff

    I've always enjoyed watching the afore mentioned in Sandlers films. Like the cross eyed fella in The Waterboy. Or even Schneider in the same film. It would appear tho, I must admit, that Sandler can "No Longer Do It" Pity

  • Aug. 25, 2011, 8:07 a.m. CST

    guaranteed Pacino's stuff is the best part of the movie...

    by WeylandYutani

    So now that we saw it in the trailer, there is not reason to waste $15 bucks.

    Every pitch for an Adam Sandler movie:

    by Andy Morgan

    There's this screwed up rich guy... blah blah... B to A List actress way to hot to ever be with Sandler... blah blah... kvetchy canned old Jew voice for yucks... blah blah.. Sandler yelling... blah blah... personal growth to show heart of gold shine through... Slightly less screwed up rich guy... The end.

  • Aug. 25, 2011, 9:02 a.m. CST

    I watched it, Harry.

    by DrMeyer

    And it's not as mind-numbingly awful as you said. It's WORSE. The only reason I can think of for Pacino being in this abomination is that he needed a paycheck.

  • Aug. 25, 2011, 9:46 a.m. CST

    Zohan almost worked because it was based on a true story...

    by Royston Lodge

    ...but it would have been way better if it had been done by a semi-artsy Israeli director and starring an actual badass action actor.

  • Aug. 25, 2011, 10:04 a.m. CST

    Why is it, on days when GOOD trailers are released to the net...

    by Royston Lodge

    ...that AICN insists on posting about the bad ones. I just took a look at Dave's Trailer Page. There's plenty of great stuff there (particularly Texas Killing Fields) that would be of interest to geekdom. But no, AICN thinks Jack & Jill is more newsworthy? I don't get it.

    Adam Sandler's movies havent changed in the past 15 years

    by sunwukong86

    He plays one of two characters in every movie. A) The asshole with anger issues who changes by the end of the movie B) The lovable moron that gets the girl at the end of the movie. Both characters have him attached to some woman that's way too hot for him.

  • Aug. 25, 2011, 10:35 a.m. CST

    Anybody see Righteous Kill?

    by Charlie_Allnut

    I actually paid to see that piece of garbage. I almost walked out several times. I remember when a Pacino movie was automatically an event he just needs to stop already. I honestly can't remember the last movie he was in that was even remotely good...Heat?

  • Aug. 25, 2011, 10:38 a.m. CST


    by Charlie_Allnut

  • Now, Pacino has joined DeNiro in comedy hackdom. Sad to see how far these two guys have fallen.

    by Charlie_Allnut

    A tollbooth worker lives in a $3million loft in NYC? Oh look the cute kid is pissing in a plant! Haahahaha! Oh look the cute kid is kicking someone in the balls! Hahahahaha! The problem is people actually think this crap is funny. I saw Grown Ups with a group of guys last summer and as we came out of the theater I was about to say: That was stupid! But every one suddenly started raving about how "funny" it was. Hmmm. All I can think of is Idiocracy.

  • Aug. 25, 2011, 10:58 a.m. CST

    I thought Zohan was hilarious

    by Astronut

    Like, really hilarious. My friend and I had tears in our eyes. I slid off the seat at one point I was laughing so hard. It reminded me of the dumb humor in Austin Powers, it's just funny for no good reason. But THIS.......... THIS looks like total crap.

  • I liked Pacino's line "You'd think I'd have more [Academy Awards], but no."

  • Aug. 25, 2011, 12:59 p.m. CST

    Very, very close to "so bad it's good" territory.


    Sandler has been wallowing in plain old crap for years, but this actually looks like he's trying to outdo himself. I laughed at the trailer. It looks beyond ridiculous. To anyone whining about how bad this looks... you just might be missing the point.

    by Essemtee

    So, Al Pacino is attracted to Jill. But... Jack and Jill are IDENTICAL twins!! So, wouldn't that mean Pacino is also attracted to Jack?? Does that come into play? This movie is going to be number one in its first weekend. You guys realize that, right?

  • Aug. 25, 2011, 4:15 p.m. CST

    Hilarious trailer! That chick that plays Jill is great!

    by Quake II

    That guy that plays Pacino NAILS HIM! The impression is so good it's scary! I can't wait to see this film. Sandler hits another one out of the park! Hopefully it's PG-13 so entire families can get in. An R rating might hurt the box office. I need to play some ELO right now and pretend MY ugly, clumsy twin sister has come to visit. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes, this movie looks dumb, but for chrissakes your vicious post is so silly. ELO being whored out? The title of the song fits with the shit they are showing and, anyway, by the time Don't Bring Me Down showed up, ELO were purposely trying to crank out hit records. A worse idea than this movie? Letting you get involved with John Carter. Maybe? Ya think...?

    Adam Sandler as a woman..

    by Cruzboy

    ...looks like Minnie Driver caught in a vice... ...or a horse in a dress. Take your pick.

  • ...Who absolutely loathe one another (perhaps an issue they have over a female starlet both fucked) bet who can make the absolutely worst movie yet still make the most at the box office over their rivals. The whole thing would be a vicious satire on the Hollywood studio system, and the American audience. Of course, this concept would never be produced, and nobody would watch it. (I could pitch it as "it's Idiocracy set in the modern-day movie industry.")

  • that's used later in the scene that isn't shown in the trailer?

    Why does Sandler churn out turd after turd?

    by moonlightdrive

    I find it baffling. Surely he was funny in past. The Zohan movie was so offensive in it's awfulness. Where is the quality control? I guess he doesn't care.

    Sandler was never funny.

    by Half-Baked-Goggle-Box-Do-Gooder

    I'm (probably) older than a lot of you, and Sandler's boy-in-a-man's-body schtick was a dull and unimaginative rip-off of Pee-Wee from the start. Sandler is a generational act, like "Napolean Dynamite" or Jerry Lewis. You laugh at them for a few years, and then you grow up and realize that they were shit all along.

    This looks like a Adam Sandler movie. Just mindless stupid fun. In fact this looks more like old school Sandler. The trailer is just missing some Rob Schneider. Sandler is not Eddie Murphy who went from brilliant to stupid and should be burned on a cross. Sandler has always been stupid. Just sit back and enjoy.
