The 32nd Annual Razzie Awards observed several momentous firsts Sunday night. The celebration of the worst in filmmaking held its Santa Monica, Calif. ceremony on April 1 — i.e. April Fools Day — for the first time, breaking from its tradition of presenting its honors on the night before the Academy Awards. And for the first time in Razzie history, one film “won” every single Golden Raspberry handed out: Jack and Jill.


This is the only movie I've ever watched that I walked out of in the movie theater. Everything about it from the underlying message to the parts that were supposed to be comedic made me want to shoot Adam Sandler in the face. Personally, I think this movie just might be the end of Sandler's career.

I don't even know how Sandler and his buddies come up with ideas for films anymore...My hypothesis is that they just get stoned and think of the worst film they can possibly make and still get people to come see it.

Al Pacino's performance was by far the stupidest part of the whole film, I be willing to bet that its because of this film that he has to do speaking tours now.

I mourn for Pacino and Sandler, post this film.

I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and spent most of it either laughing or at the least, chuckling.

Haven't seen Jack and Jill. I really liked Punch Drunk Love, with Sandler in it.

I've enjoyed most of his recent movies to be honest. His humour has morphed somewhat from his earlier days where it was all about screaming and over the top behaviour and more into subtle snarky comments.

Well, I enjoy some of the hilariously terrible comedies from the 80's and early 90's, so I still enjoy some of his recent movies. Those kinds of movies don't have to be "good" to be enjoyable for me.

I liked Click. A couple of scenes in his earlier movies were funny, but hardly enough to be considered good movies.

I've been waiting and wondering when the rest of the world will catch up to me and realize that Adam Sandler has never had a shred of comedic talent. Has it finally happened?

Poorly explained, sorry. Subtle in the movie, not necessarily so to the audience. Before everything was an over the top action or screaming, where as now it seems more often, his characters are making comment sunder their breath. I love me some sarcasm.

Click was the last decent movie starring Sandler. He was only mildly entertaining when I was 20.

Edit: Christopher Walken probably saved Click, anyway.

If you don't like Adam Sandler movies, then I recommend Punch Drunk Love, because it's not an Adam Sandler movie. Even though he stars in it. And it's fascinating to watch what he can do when he does Arthouse.

I did too, although it makes me bawl like a baby. I don't typically cry when I watch movies, but any time a movie has someone die of cancer or a parent die in general, it reminds me of my dad and I start sobbing. ****, I remember the first time I watched Lion King after he died (it was about 9 months after I think) I started bawling then too. I was 19 at the time, and it's kind of embarrassing at that age for a Disney movie to make you cry, even if it's for an understandable reason.

Generally speaking, I enjoy Adam Sandler movies. They aren't my favorite, and I don't own any of them, but they amuse me. Jack and Jill looked really stupid though, and I have no interest in seeing it.

I once tried to watch "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" or whatever it's called, and I think survived 20 minutes.
