This was the first movie in Razzie history to win in every category: 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 Katie Holmes or Pacino and Sandler), Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel (Remake/Ripoff of Glen or Glenda (1953)), Worst Screenplay, and Worst Screen Ensemble. It 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 I Know Who Killed Me (2007), with eight awards, including Worst Picture of 2007.
During the Los Angeles 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).
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 titled Looking for Richard (1996).
Adam Sandler accidentally exposed his genitalia when he played Jill, due to wearing a mini-skirt.
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."
This was the second movie in Razzie Awards history to "sweep" all the top five categories. The first was Gigli (2003). This essentially makes it the Razzie equivalent of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975), the second film to win the "Oscar Grand Slam:" Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Director, and Screenplay.
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").
Adam Sandler was paid $20 million ro make this film.

Spoilers 

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

During the "Dunkaccino" ad, there are some references to other Al Pacino movies 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 (1975) and Scent of a Woman (1992).
  • "Say hello to my chocolate blend" is a nod to the infamous line in Scarface (1983): "Say hello to my little friend!", while "Chocolate Syrup, I know it was you..." may be a reference to a line in The Godfather: Part II (1974): when Michael discovers Fredo's treason, he says, "I know it was you..."
