YMMV / Jack and Jill

  • Bile Fascination: The fact that the film won so many Razzies helps.
  • Critical Research Failure: The film claims that Jack and Jill are "identical" twin siblings, for the sake of having Adam Sandler's face on both of them. Identical twins are made out from a single fertilized egg cell, which results on a single gender offspring. Fraternal twins are from separately fertilized egg cells, and almost always subvert Strong Family Resemblance as a result.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Al Pacino because he was the only character to care about.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: After reviewing the commercial for Dunkin' Donuts, Pacino demands that Jack "burn this" and every copy of it after expressing disgust at the results. Many viewers and critics were quick to reinterpret this scene as a stab at the movie itself after audiences had seen it for themselves.
    • If Jill told everybody to play with their cock and balls as in Do it for Your Mama, that would be more funny. Both Emily and Jill sound alike.
  • Memetic Mutation: The CGI bird in the chocolate fountain gained quite a life of its own over on Tumblr.
  • Took the Bad Film Seriously: Al Pacino's performance was the one part of this movie critics agreed was good. Next to his Dunkin' Donuts commercial.
  • Unintentionally Unsympathetic/The Scrappy: It's clear that whenever Jack yells at Jill we're supposed to be siding with Jill, but she's often very rude and nasty to everyone she meets, and is generally a public nuisance, like when she takes a call while watching a film and then complains about how the people trying to shut her up are being so loud she can't hear the phone. She also invades upon every aspect of Jack's life (and has been invading upon every aspect of his life FOR YEARS), even though it's clear he doesn't want her there, even extending her stay over many more weeks without asking Jack.
  • Wangst: Of all the things that Jill over-reacts to, her freak-out at not having her own birthday cake at the party stands out, especially seeing how anything like the ginormous cake that her and Jack actually got would have to be ordered weeks (if not months) in advance, and Jill wasn't even originally supposed to be at the party.
