* HilariousInHindsight:
** After reviewing the commercial for Dunkin' Donuts, Creator/AlPacino 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 [[ReviewIronicEcho a stab at the movie itself]] after they had seen it for themselves. Speaking of which, Al's desire to "burn this" became even ''more'' Hilarious In Hindsight when Dunkaccino became a meme in 2020.

* JustHereForGodzilla: A good chunk of Mexican viewers went to see the movie because it was the first foray of comedian Creator/EugenioDerbez into a Hollywood film. Most of them were disappointed since his role in the movie [[AdvertisedExtra was far smaller than the advertisements]] in Mexico made them believe.
** Something similar happened on Spain with the spanish comedian Santiago Segura, whose role was used heavily at the Spanish ads to promote the film. Enough said that his role [[AdvertisedExtra is at the same level of Eugenio Derbez]].

Added DiffLines:

* TrailerJokeDecay: Creator/MarkKermode felt that the joke about Creator/AlPacino's lack of Oscars was the only genuine laugh in the film, yet it was in all the trailers.


* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: Yes, even with a movie like this, [[Funny/JackAndJill there are a few genuinely funny moments here and there.]]
* HamAndCheese: Out of the entire cast, Al Pacino is the only one who brings energy to the movie, and it's a lot of energy.

** The CGI cockatoo drinking out of a chocolate fountain is also well-remembered, if only thanks to the ''[[https://sarcastic-clapping.tumblr.com/post/127837638610/tracomalfoy-shiromouse-i-saw-a-post-that-was infamous]]'' debates it caused on Tumblr.

* {{Padding}}: The dinner scene after Jill arrives is the longest scene in the movie, and most of it is repetitive dialogue about how much Jack can't stand Jill and long gags.

* SpecialEffectFailure: 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 UncannyValley effect.

** A lot of the basketball game scene is shot in front of painfully obvious greenscreen.

Added DiffLines:

* TearJerker: Even though it was CGI, seeing the poor hamster squirm while taped to Jack's son's back was just cruel.


* {{Wangst}}: Of all the things that Jill overreacts 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.

Added DiffLines:

* WatchItForTheMeme: Some viewers prefer ignoring the movie and skipping straight to the Dunkaccino ad.

Added DiffLines:

* SoBadItsGood: {{Averted}} by the rest of the film, but the famous "Dunkaccino" scene is so cringeworthy that it can elicit a laugh.


* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: Yes, even with a movie like this, there are a few genuinely funny moments here and there.
** A meta one for the Razzies for awarding Creator/AdamSandler "Worst ''Actress''" for his portrayal of Jill.
** Jack accidentally breaks Al Pacino's Oscar, and immediately apologizes, saying he's sure he has more. Pacino shrugs and says "[[SelfDeprecation Eh, you would think it, but oddly enough, I don't]]."
*** Similarly done later, when Pacino mentions that he'd raised pigeons when he was younger... only to admit that he confused ''himself'' with Creator/MarlonBrando.

Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: For fans of Adam Sandler's "GAP Girls" skit from ''SNL,'' it can be pretty disappointing to see his surprising talents at drag be put to such paltry use.


* FridgeHorror: As [[WebVideo/HalfInTheBag Jay Bauman]] observed, the gag of Jill sitting on a donkey and crushing its legs becomes ''way'' darker when you realise that in all likelihood, that donkey was put down in front of crying children.
