pay movie theater ticket prices to see Jack and Jill.
When a movie sucks as bad as Jack and Jill, the critics really step up their game. Critic Mike Ryan wrote a great tongue-in-cheek piece entitled, Jack and Jill: The Most Important Movie Ever Made, and several other critics have outdone themselves as well. Here's a sample of some of my other favorite comments about the new Sandler movie.
- "Movies like this should be stricken from film history and put in a closet never to be seen again." - Matthew Razak (Flixist.com)
- "Howard the Duck, Gigli, Showgirls, From Justin To Kelly. What do they all have in common? They're all widely considered to be among the worst big studio movies ever made. You know what else they have in common? They're all better than Jack and Jill." - Mike McGranaghan (Aisle Seat)
...and the winner...
- "Guess what's showing in movie critic hell?" - James Verniere (Boston Herald)
If you're looking for big blockbuster movie fun this weekend, all is not lost. While there may be no worthwhile films opening in theaters (sadly, J. Edgar is languishing at just the 41% approval mark), you can still enjoy an entertaining afternoon reading about movies on Rotten Tomatoes. Staying home and reading the reviews of Jack and Jill will provide more laughs than actually seeing the movie, and you'll save $10 or $11 bucks on popcorn.
