Jack and Jill

Hollywood funnyman Adam Sandler takes on the two lead roles in the comedy Jack and Jill.

Ad man Jack Sadelstein (Sandler) lives with wife Erin (Katie Holmes), their daughter Sofia (Elodie Tougne) and adopted son Gary (Rohan Chand).

Every Thanksgiving, Jack braces himself for the arrival of twin sister Jill (Sandler again), who has a complete lack of social graces.

The ad executive can’t wait to be rid of her until his sibling becomes useful.

Jack hopes to persuade Al Pacino to star in a commercial for a new type of coffee from a well-known chain of doughnut shops.

The Oscar-winner develops a crush on Jill so Jack surmises that he can use her “like some kind of prosti-twin”.

Unfortunately for Jack, Jill has deep feelings for the Sadelsteins’ Mexican gardener, Felipe (Eugenio Derbez).

The stand-out scene pokes fun at Pacino’s shocking luck at the Oscars by having Jill accidentally shatter his one golden statuette.

“I’m sure you have others,” Jill smiles apologetically. “You’d think it but oddly enough, I don’t,” replies Pacino.

Jack and Jill is showing at the Odeon Kettering today at 3.45pm, 6.15pm and 8.45pm.
