The official Columbia/Sony Pictures press materials for this movie refer to the Jack and Jill characters as "identical twins." In fact, identical twins can only be of the same sex (because they are genetically *identical*). There are a handful of cases of monozygotic twins of opposite sex, where one embryo lost the Y chromosome during embryogenesis, resulting in a female with Turner Syndrome. See more »

I sincerely wish I could erase this film from my memory. I love Adam Sandler, and yes, he's had a couple of bad films but this one is so bad I believe his career might actually end because of it.
The constant shrieking of Jill is unbearable, and were we really meant to take Sandler's female character seriously? Or was this film only meant to be "funny" because Sandler's in drag? I've still not figured that out, and I don't think I'll devote much more time to doing so.
This film led me to create my IMDb account because if what I've said here can keep even one person from paying to see it then I feel it will have been worth writing.
