Adam Sandler’s ‘Jack and Jill’ Cleans Up At the Razzies
It has been said that Adam Sandler makes basically the same movie over and over again. But here’s something that will forever differentiate his 2011 effort, ‘Jack and Jill,’ from the ever-expanding list of comedy titles that he churns out like clockwork: The cross-dressing farce has won more Razzies than any other movie in the award’s 32-year history.
Of course that’s not a good thing, as the Razzies honor the worst achievements in motion pictures. But ‘Jack and Jill’s’ ten Golden Raspberry Awards haul is still an impressive feat considering Razzies are only given out in ten categories. Also notable is the fact that Sandler, who did the brother/sister cross-dressing thing for the flick, won for both Worst Actor and Worst Actress.
The previous record for most Razzies was held by 2007’s notorious Lindsay Lohan failure ‘I Know Who Killed Me.’
Just like many of the winners before him, Sandler was not on hand to receive his trophies. Maybe he was at home counting his money, as ‘Jack and Jill’ grossed almost $150 million dollars world-wide. For comparison’s sake, 2012’s Oscar winner for Best Picture, ‘The Artist,’ has taken in about $120 million across the globe.
