- Critical Dissonance: Box office hit. Panned by critics, and biggest Golden Raspberry Award winner ever; it quite literally won every single award in 2011, including Adam Sandler winning best actress!
- 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, resulting into differently-looking twins or boy-girl twins.
- Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Remember, folks, if you have an obnoxious relative who talks too loud, says inappropriate things, and always makes themselves the center of attention, you're a Bad Person(™) for not wanting them around.
- Memetic Mutation: The CGI bird in the chocolate fountain gained quite a life of its own over on Tumblr.
- The Scrappy: Jill
- Took The Bad Film Seriously: Al Pacino's performance was the one part of this movie critics agreed was good.
