Well I think it’s official… Adam Sandler has finally hit rock bottom. Just when you thought he was starting to break out of his comedic slump with dramatic performances in movies like Funny People and Reign Over Me, he goes and stars in a movie that looks exactly like one of the parodies from Funny People. It’s clear from the trailer for his next film Jack and Jill that he simply doesn’t care anymore. He has now entered into Eddie Murphy / Wayans Brothers territory.
The movie stars Sandler in dual roles playing both a family man named Jack and his twin sister Jill, who comes to visit from the Bronx and turns his life upside down. So yes, we get to see him in drag for the entire movie, although they showed surprising restraint in avoiding the fat suit. Jack and Jill is directed by Dennis Dugan (Grown Ups, Happy Gilmore) and also co-stars Katie Holmes, Al Pacino and Shaquille O’Neal. What more do you need to know? I’m sure it will be the runaway hit of this holiday season. Jack and Jill hits theatres on November 11th; plug your nose and check out the trailer after the jump.
