We often wonder how a pair of twins live together. Do the twins feel each other's pain whenever one of them has physical or psychological pain? Do they have the same movements and behaviour from young till old? Let us discover the 'twin connection' in the new movie from Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions, "Jack And Jill".



American director, Dennis Dugan had always been creating a new breed of comedy on the silver screen whenever he collaborates with former Saturday Night Live star, Adam Sandler. Movies like "Happy Gilmore", "Big Daddy", "I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry", "You Don't Mess With The Zohan", "Grown Ups" and "Just Go With It" were both Dugan and Sandler's brilliant comedic work that will give audiences much laughter. This time, the duo are back with "Jack And Jill", a story of Jack Sadelstein (Sandler), a successful advertising executive who lives in Los Angeles with a beautiful wife and children. He lives a steady life, except when it comes to facing his "identical" twin sister, Jill (also Sandler in a double role), Jack has no idea how to deal with her, but to wish her to disappear as soon as possible after Thanksgiving, an event that much to Jack's dismay, brings Jack and Jill together every year.



In the 93 minutes, the audience will get to see how Adam Sandler handles two characters with different sex and attitude. You might expect Sandler to double up the funniness of the plot when you find out that the comedian has to perform for two roles, but the awkward jokes and less than creative movie plot do not exactly hit well with the audiences as it overshadowed Sandler's performance capabilities in some ways. However, his emphasis in the movie is much more on Jill, compared to Jack. His effort in playing Jill allows you to witness a person's neediness and disgusting actions.



Playing himself in the movie, Al Pacino shows a love-struck person's madness when one is falling for a woman. Pacino does not make a cameo in the film, but is the second most important character in the comedy. His appearance gives the audience a chance to look at the funny side of him and his ridiculous-ness is believable.



Despite having some unattractive scenes and dialogues, you can still learn some family values from "Jack And Jill" as it tells you no matter how much you dislike your siblings, someday love will bring us back together and you will realise that they are the one you love and care for the most.



In conclusion, it may not be one of the best Adam Sandler's movies, but you can still have some fun watching "Jack And Jill" with your family and have a good laugh.

BWW Review: WAYWARD CHILDREN Series By Seanan McGuire
by Bonnie Lynn Wagner - Sep 28, 2018

The Wayward Children books don't necessarily have to be read in order, since each features a different protagonist, but I highly recommend at least reading EVERY HEART A DOORWAY first because it sets the world and reality and introduces the characters of Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children. Think about Dorothy when she returns from Oz, Alice when she comes back from Wonderland, the Pevensie siblings, who returned to Narnia on multiple occasions. Think about kids who go to amazing worlds and have incredible adventures. What happens when they return home? What happens when nobody believes them? Are they crazy? What if our world is no longer enough, but they can't return where they belong? (more...)
