The critical consensus

A step up from Grown Ups – but that’s hardly saying much – Sandler’s brash, unpretentious and unsubtle family comedy might be more enjoyable if it wasn’t so mean.

Sandler in a dress is not the weirdest thing here. That would be Al Pacino playing Al Pacino.

**(*)(*)(*)Siobhan Synnot, The Scotsman, 29/01/2012

After viewing the commercial they’ve made, Pacino mutters ‘Burn this, no one must see it,’ inadvertently providing the only moment of truth is this gross, witless farrago.

A turkey each for Jack and Jill.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Chris Tookey, Daily Mail, 03/02/2012

There is a type of film so bad that it is actually scary, like seeing those mawkish photographs of sweet little children in Victorian Britain dressed up as angels and realising after a few moments that they are corpses. Adam Sandler's new comedy Jack and Jill is such a film.
