Jack and Jill is a comedy focusing on Jack Sadelstein (Adam Sandler), a successful advertising executive in Los Angeles with a beautiful wife and kids, who dreads one event each year: the Thanksgiving visit of his identical twin sister Jill (also Adam Sandler). Jill's neediness and passive-aggressiveness is maddening to Jack, turning his normally tranquil life upside down. Katie Holmes plays Erin, Jack's wife.

More than 24 hours has passed since I watched the new Adam Sandler movie Jack and Jill and I am still dead inside.Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine, 11.10.2011
The pic's general stupidity, careless direction and reliance on a single-joke premise that was never really funny to begin with are only the most obvious of its problems.Andrew Barker, Variety, 11.10.2011
Feels like an elementary school recess that's gone on too long, the merrymaking strained and the participants looking tired even when they're in full comic dudgeon.Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, 11.10.2011
Lazy and slapdash, the work of a comedian trusting too much in his own hilariousness.Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, 11.10.2011
