Storyline Heading
Jack was living an almost perfect life, with the exception of one, annoying constant - his twin sister Jill. Every year he has to tolerate a Thanksgiving visit from his smothering sister, who doesn't take long to turn his life upside down. As the weekend intrusion starts stretching into a month, the siblings fight, tease, and bicker in the way only twins can. When it becomes clear Jill is never leaving, Jack sets into motion several schemes that he hopes will return Jill to where he loves her most - the other side of the country.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - Like almost all of Adam Sandler's films, this is a very silly comedy aimed at a young adult audience. While there is a bit of crude humor, the lack of language and all the kid humor makes this more family-targeted than most of his films. Fans of Katie Holmes may be disappointed with her limited screen time, but Al Pacino fans will enjoy his change-of-pace comedic turn.

Critic's Review Heading

USA Today Full Review
Very Poor ...when his Happy Madison production company handles his movies, as it did Little Nicky and Mr. Deeds, the wheels seem to come off in a cloud of fat and flatulence jokes. Both are on full exhibit in Jack, which could be Sandler's worst film. And that's saying something......what makes Jack pseudo-watchable is the star lineup that was snookered into this train wreck. Sandler must be a nice guy in person because he convinced Johnny Depp and Al Pacino to take speaking roles...

Washington Post Full Review
Poor Like all Happy Madison productions, it cannot really be said to be good or bad, any more than dumping a bag of marbles onto a bathroom scale can be said to result in an accurate weight. It is what it is - and, more important, exactly what Happy Madison fans want it to be: something unruly, stupid and sort of funny, in the same way - and to exactly the same extent - that passing gas is funny.

NY Post Full Review
Terrible "Burn this. All copies must be destroyed. No good.'' Al Pacino is reacting after watching his cringe-worthy song-and-dance number at the end of "Jack and Jill,'' but this harsh assessment could easily be applied to the entirety of this gruesomely unfunny Adam Sandler vehicle. The spectacle of Pacino mocking himself, "The Godfather'' and "Scarface'' in the nadir of his career tends to overshadow this fiasco's very poorly executed central gimmick: Sandler in a dual role as male and female twins.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 108 moviegoers:
Moviegoers certainly enjoyed this movie much more than the critics. Adam Sandler movies appeal to a certain moviegoer and they provided some high reviews.
CHILDREN:They loved it! It does have a lot of humor that kids enjoy.
TEENS:Great reviews from the males and close to great reviews from the females. A few of the ladies rated it below average, but most enjoyed "Jack and Jill" very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:There weren't very many in this group but, fortunately, both the males and females rated it very high.
ADULTS: Approximately half the males and females loved "Jack and Jill." Another third enjoyed it very much, rating it "Very Good." As could be expected with this type of movie, there were a few who were disappointed. I suspect that they weren't big fans of this type of movie.
