First Photos of Adam Sandler in Drag; Plays Twin Sister in JACK AND JILL

     October 13, 2010

Think what you will about Adam Sandler, but his movies make money.  Since 1998, 11 of his 16 movies have broken 100 million dollars at the domestic box office.  That’s a winning percentage for any movie star.  And even though most critics didn’t enjoy Grown Ups (his lastest movie), the film went on to gross over 264 million at the worldwide box office.  What I’m trying to say is…Sandler is very popular and I wouldn’t bet against him.

That’s why even though the thought of Adam Sandler dressing in drag to play his twin sister in Dennis Dugan’s (Happy Gilmore, You Don’t Mess With the Zohan) new movie Jack and Jill doesn’t seem like a good idea to me (especially after seeing these pictures), I know it’ll still make a ton of money and some people are going to love it.  Hit the jump for more pictures and what we know about the movie:

As we previously reported in June, Sandler talked about Jack and Jill and said:

In Jack and Jill I play me, I play my twin sister. The man version of me is doing okay, he has a family out in L.A.; the twin-sister-version of me lives out in the Bronx and comes out to L.A. for Thanksgiving and then refuses to leave and is spoiling the man version of [me’s] family life a little bit.

The one positive about the project is according to IMDb, the script was partly written by Robert Smigel.  I’m a fan of his work on Saturday Night Live and think his addition can only help the project.

As of now, the film has no release date, but it’s listed for 2011.  What that means is…the earliest Jack and Jill is going to hit theaters is next summer.  Al Pacino and Katie Holmes also star.  More as we get it.

    I found Grown Ups to be entertaining, it seemed like a trashier version of something like Big Daddy. Certainly more in the vein of slapstick humor that Sandler pulled in the 90s, I just wish he’d step away from the kiddie flicks and do something for us immature adults again.

    Or he could team up with Drew Barrymore again and make us another unforgettable romantic comedy (Wedding Singer, 50 First Dates).

      The reason he’s been doing these semi kiddie flicks is because he has kids now, which is understandable, but it’s not a reason to avoid making edgier R-rated comedies altogether. I mean it would be okay to make a semi kiddie flick every once in a while, just not make it the rest of your whole career.

      He does have a romantic comedy coming up, but it’s with Jennifer Aniston, not Drew Barrymore. But it still shouldn’t be so bad since to Aniston, Sandler is more Vince Vaughn or Owen Wilson than Gerard Butler or Aaron Eckhart.

      I actually think that Jack and Jill could possibly gross less than 100M considering its concept and release date, and frankly, I hope it does because this movie seems like giving the middle finger to Funny People which parodied this exact kind of film. Then again, general audiences gave the middle finger to Funny People by not seeing it.

    You actually make it seem so easy along with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be really one thing which I believe I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very huge for me. I am taking a look ahead to your next publish, I?ll try to get the hold of it!
