If you’ve been unfortunate enough to have already seen the trailer for Adam Sandler’s latest movie, JACK AND JILL, you might have asked yourself – Is this shit for real? – only to discover the sad, sad fact that it was indeed. If there’s any lesson to be learned from Eddie Murphy’s career (besides having your mouth so glued to Brett Ratner’s butt you have to follow him wherever he goes, like into the Oscars and right back out of them again), it’s not to dress up as the fat, female version of yourself and then star opposite her. But Sandler did it anyway, and it looks so unbelievably bad, so excruciatingly unwatchable, many people are questioning its authenticity, citing the parody trailers in the beginning of TROPIC THUNDER as more believable.
