Jump to: Spoilers (1)
"Won" in every category at the 32nd Razzie Awards (Worst Picture, Worst Director (Dennis Dugan), Worst Actor (Adam Sandler as Jack), Worst Actress (Adam Sandler as Jill), Worst Supporting Actor (Al Pacino), Worst Supporting Actress (David Spade as Monica), Worst Screen Couple (Adam Sandler and either Katie Holmes, Al Pacino or Adam Sandler), Worst Prequel, Remake, Ripoff or Sequel (Remake/Ripoff of Glen or Glenda (1953)), Worst Screenplay and Worst Screen Ensemble), becoming the first movie in history to do so. It also now holds the record for most Razzie Award "wins" by one film in a single year, with ten awards including Worst Picture of 2011. The record was previously held by the Lindsay Lohan thriller I Know Who Killed Me (2007), with eight awards including Worst Picture of 2007.
During the LA Lakers game, Johnny Depp is wearing a Justin Bieber T-shirt as a joke.
Dana Carvey's first theatrical movie appearance since The Master of Disguise (2002).
Adam Sandler accidentally exposed his genitalia when he played Jill due to wearing a mini-skirt.
Al Pacino, appearing as a fictionalized version of himself, is shown playing Richard III on stage. In reality, Pacino directed and starred in a documentary about the making of a production of Richard III entitled 'Looking for Richard'.
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.
When Al Pacino is "speaking" in French or Spanish, it is just gibberish (as the native speakers attest - the Frenchman responds "I don't understand").
Was originally rated PG by the MPAA for "crude and sexual humor, language, comic violence and brief smoking" but was amended to "crude material including suggestive references, language and comic violence."
In addition to setting several other records at the Razzie Awards, it also became only the second film in the history of the Razzie Awards to "sweep" all the top five categories. Including, Worst Picture, Worst Actor - Adam Sandler (as Jack), Worst Actress - Adam Sandler (as Jill), Worst Director - Dennis Dugan and Worst Screenplay by Steve Koren and Adam Sandler, story by Ben Zook. Essentially making it the Razzie equivalent of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975), which was the second film to win the "Oscar Grand Slam" (Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Director and Screenplay).
Watchmojo rates Jack and Jill as #1 on their list of the top ten worst comedy movies and #5 on their list of the top ten worst movies of all time.
Jack's company is called Sunny and Sadelstein, an obvious play on Adam Sandlers children's names Sunny and Sadie Sandler.

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

During the "Dunkaccino" ad, there are some references to other Pacino's films that were supposed to work as practical jokes. For example:
  • "Attica Hoo-Hah" being a flavor of a Dunkaccino, is a nod to Dog Day Afternoon and Scent of a Woman.

  • "Say hello to my chocolate vest" is a nod to his infamous line in Scarface: "Say hello to my little friend!"

"Chocolate Syrup, I know it was you..." may be a reference to a line in The Godfather: Part II, when Michael Corleone discovers Fredo's treason; he actually says to Fredo "I know it was you..."
