From Pepto-Bismol, to ocean liners, to Oreos and Dunkin Donuts, this film is saturated with enough corporate logos to have covered the bottom line.
The presentation is as good as theatrical, and the Blu-ray edition comes with a DVD and digital copy.
The disc comes with 13 deleted scenes (19 min.), which is followed by the gag reel “Laughing is Contagious” (4 min.).
Jack needs to land a Dunkin’ Donuts account with Al Pacino their wanted spokes, but when he goes to a Lakers game to get close to Pacino, Al unexpectedly gets the hots for Jill. Make no mistake, the 11 Razzie nominations for this film aren’t entirely an error. Though Sandler doesn’t do anything interesting in the movie, Al Pacino is the most awake and interesting he’s been in years, and he really enjoys playing a version of himself.
But then Jill goes on a date with Felipe (Eugenio Derbez), who is a plot point love interest that allows her to reject Pacino’s advances. All the funniest stuff in the movie involves him, and there’s a great running gag about his inability to speak foreign languages.
Sandler churns out a movie or two a year with his crew of regulars (which includes director Dennis Dugan, Allen Covert, Nick Swarsdon, Jonathan Loughran, Peter Dante and a peppering of his old SNL chums), and in all the familiar faces show up while Sandler plays twins – with one of the twins being a girl!
Cross-dressing is an old comic trope, but Sandler and company do little with it.
Jack and Jill is a 2011 American comedy film directed by Dennis Dugan, written by Steve Koren and Adam Sandler, and starring Sandler, Katie Holmes, and Al Pacino.
The film was released on November 11, 2011 by Columbia Pictures.
His sister Jill (Sandler) looks like him but a female version, talks in an annoying voice, and doesn’t seem to understand how humans interact.
Jill comes out from the Bronx to Los Angeles for Thanksgiving, but when Jack can’t hide his contempt for her, she insists that she stays (in a way that comes across as pure manipulation) through Hanukkah.
The rest of supplements are featurettes: “Look Who Stopped By” (9 min.) talks about the film’s numerous cameos, and it’s followed by “Boys Will Be Girls” (4 min.) which talks about the cross-dressing.
