Adam Sandler plays both a twin brother and sister in this, his most embarrassing film to date. When an ad executive’s twin sister comes to visit him, all hell breaks loose, including farts and shitting. As the ad executive, Sandler is just Sandler, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. As Jill, the shrill sister, Sandler humiliates himself and the human race on numerous levels. There is not one funny moment to be found in Sandler’s performances, and the film’s few laughs are provided by a slumming Al Pacino in psycho mode. This needs to be the end of Sandler’s partnership with director Dennis Dugan. Dugan is responsible for some of Sandler’s biggest hits (Happy Gilmore, Big Daddy), but their glory days are long behind them. Please let this be the last time Sandler dresses in drag for a movie role.
