YMMV / Jack and Jill

  • Bile Fascination: The fact that the film holds the record for most Razzies won 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 from a single fertilized egg cell, which results in 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.
  • Funny Moments:
    • A meta one for the Razzies for awarding Adam Sandler "Worst Actress" for his portrayal of Jill.
    • Jack accidentally knocks over Al Pacino's Oscar, and immediately apologizes, saying he's sure he has more. Pacino shrugs and says "Eh you would think, but no."
  • 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.
  • Memetic Mutation: The CGI bird in the chocolate fountain gained quite a life of its own over on Tumblr.
  • The Scrappy: Jill, for being rude and annoying and complaining a lot.
  • Special Effect Failure: Most of the effects shots used to show Jack and Jill interacting on-camera are admittedly quite impressive, but there are a couple of shots, particularly on the cruise ship, where Jill's head doesn't quite sit on her body correctly, creating an Uncanny Valley effect.
  • 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: 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.
