What do you mean? If BUCKY LARSON gets nominated for Worst Picture, will Sandler be nominated for being the producer? Also, he could also get nominated for ZOOKEEPER...  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: In addition to being one of the producers of BUCKY LARSON, Sandler is also one of the film's co-screenwriters ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1411664/fullcredits#cast -

A few words come to mind about this film: 
 
When it comes to drag, Adam Sandler is NOT in the Dustin Hoffman league...  
 
I can just imagine at this moment Sandler arguing with Nicolas Cage over why one deserves the Razzie for Worst Actor more than the other. 
 
P.S. Where is Paul Thomas Anderson when you need him?

This is turning out to be my personal week from hell...first that whole gut wrenching thing going on at Penn State, now another Adam Sandler movie being released that is almost certain to get some Razzie nominations. I've thrown up into my mouth so many times the past two days it will take me until next June to get that taste out.

I've been thinking, and I predict Cage will win. Most times the voters pick the people they feel are long overdue. And Sandler has already won. Either way, Maybe the voters will wanna vote Cage for Worst Actor and Sandler for Worst Actress, so it can be a "win-win" situation.

As I've said before, Adam Sandler has had 11 of his films make my Bottom 40 Lists since 2000: 

Little Nicky, 2000, #5 Worst 

The Animal, 2001, #21 Worst 

Mr. Deeds, 2002, #12 Worst 

Eight Crazy Nights, 2002, #8 Worst 

Anger Management, 2003, #29 Worst 

Along Came Polly, 2004, #10 Worst 

The Longest Yard [remake], 2005, #10 Worst 

Click, 2006, #39 Worst 

I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, 2007, #5 Worst 

You Don't Mess With the Zohan, 2008, #40 Worst 

Grown-Ups, 2010, #13 Worst 
 
Plus, all 4 films Adam Sandler has been in this year are slated for my Bottom 40 Films of 2011
 
Katie Noelle-Holmes has starred in 4 films on my Top 40 and 1 on my Bottom 40:

Wonder Boys, 2000, 16th Best

Pieces of April, 2003, 15th Best

Batman Begins, 2005, 11th Best

Thank You For Smoking, 2006, 25th Best

First Daughter, 2004, #35 Worst
 
...But I wouldn't classify her as a RAZZIE Repeat Offender because she's only gotten 1 RAZZIE nomination, and that was for a good movie.
 
Al Pacino starred in 2 of my recent Top 40ers and 4 of my past Bottom 40ers: 

Insomnia, 2002, 31st Best 

The Merchant of Venice, 2004, 35th Best 

Gigli, 2003, #1 Worst 

Two For the Money, 2005, #24 Worst 

Righteous Kill, 2008, #19 Worst 

88 Minutes, 2008, #16 Worst 
 
Hopefully Americans aren't dumb enough to make Jack & Jill eligible for "Worst Film Everyone Saw" (commercial success and critical failure are the criteria)... because if I would last 3 months under Mitt Romney, I'd be surprised.  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: You're slightly off on Katie Holmes' RAZZIE® track record -- She was nominated as Worst Supporting Actress for BATMAN BEGINS, and was a "co-winner" of our one-off category Most Tiresome Tabloid Target in 2005, alongside hubby Tom Cruise ( http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005017/awards - ). So calling her a "Repeat Offender" isn't that much of a stretch. If she were to be "recognized" this year for this film and/or SON OF NO ONE, it would be her third time as a nominee...

Yesterday I asked a friend if he was gonan see this movie. He said he hadn't heard of it, so I explained the premise. He said "I don't think so!" Then he saw the trailer, and I noticed he was laughing. When I asked him again if he was gonna see it, he said, "No,I was just laughing at the stupidity of it".

You know it's very unlikely this film is going to tank, especially since it's demographic is ten and younger, and I think it might be given a boost since all of the wide releases this week (J. Edgar, The Immortals, and most of all Jack and Jill) are getting mixed-to-negative reviews. It's possible, just not all that likely. And even if it does fail, Sandler already has two more movies in production, one of which actually sounds promising.  

Then again, I thought the Smurfs was going to flop, so what I do know??

For a long time, people have been expecting Sandler to finally make a movie with a 0%. He did... twice... within the same year! The R.T. concensus says "Although it features an inexplicably committed performance from Al Pacino*, the film is impossible to recommend on any level whatsoever". This means not even Sandler fans will like it (unless they're die-hard and stubborn). I predict this movie will have a big opening, and from that point it may not be a flop but it won't raise as much as expected.

*Knowing the Razzies, he still will be in consideration, right?

I know it's weird to discuss this with the creator of the Razzie, but I still don't think she's a repeat offender. I'd say that would mean at least 5 nominations, and one of the ones she had wasn't because of her acting. Also, half her movies have been bad. She's not the Oscar version of a repeat offender either.

I'm fairly certain that Bucky Larson was marketed as just a Happy Madison/Nick Swardson vehicle, and those don't always make money (Cough -- Strange Wilderness -- cough). Plus, Jack and Jill is rated PG (and has families in mind which is  a big crowd) whereas Bucky was rated R.

You know, this film might be an allegory of his career. 'Jill' represents the part of Adam Sandler that does all of the horrible movies that he does. 'Jack' represents the part of Sandler that hates the horrible movies that he does and wishes he could do more movies like Punch-Drunk-Love or The Wedding Singer. When 'Jack' sees his 'Jill' persona (I.E. when he does all of those horrid films) he is embarrassed by them. However eventually, through spending more time with 'Jill' (I.E. making tons of money off of the horrible movies) he comes to accept 'Jill'.  That's my two cents.

Maybe it won't stay at 0%, but it's still clearly among the worst reviewed movies of the year... and maybe the decade! While this year there aren't many movies that seem to be the surefire nominees for Worst Picture, this one is, especially because it'll still be fresh in everybody's minds when the Nominating Ballots come out. 

By the way, R.T. users have been trashing those positive reviews.

I'm pretty sure that most of the people who trash the positive reviews, haven't actually seen the film (keeping in mind that the audience for this film is probably ten and younger). Not that it looks good (looks terrible and I have no interest in seeing it). Of course I've also seen some guy defend Michael A Smith's review.

I just wanted to inform the good people of the Razzies that this film made $9 million last night, and is projected to make 26 million for the weekend. Good day all.

PS: That probably makes it a hit. Seeing as it was projected not to make anything higher than 25 million, which also proves that most family films are critic proof (as are Sandler's films, of course).

I may be wrong, but I think South Park only makes fun of specific celebrities and their careers. As for specific movies,  they only do so when it's something more trancendant. You see, a movie like this can happen every day (it has happened), but... say... INDY 4. While the concensus is that it's a good movie, they made fun because it dissapointed the fanbase.

Reading through this forum is indeed highly entertaining. Seems like Sandler will stay as my choice for Worst Actor.  
 
I was annoyed by Lautner's performance in Abduction. In fact, I was annoyed by a lot of performances this year. But I am now beyond annoyed by Sandler. I read a review about Sandler's acting, which said "Looks like Sandler isn't even trying any more," and I agree with that. If he actually is trying, it doesn't show. So one point for Lautner for at least attempting to act.  

I have yet to see JACK & JILL, and am having a hard time finding the strength to do so!

Probably the third of those. I don't hate Sandler, and I don't like him either. And I doubt a film of his would get away with no Razzies, no matter the box office. I'm just saying that you could argue that any Adam Sandler comedy in the past ten years sucks, and his audiences are stupid...

OK, about the review...

I saw two movies this weekend involving guys who wore dresses and lots of makeup. The difference?Leonardo DiCaprio was incredible as J Edgar Hoover; Adam Sandler was just offensive as Jill Whatthehellherlastnamewas. Leonardo was working with a good script. Sandler just did his usual shtick filled with fart jokes and ethnic stereotypes. And lots of farts. Plenty of "gags" misfire such as a talking bird, a kid's obsession with tape, online dating, Mexican food, and another kid's obsession with American Girl dolls. Why point out any others, they were all as dull as Steve Martin's last Pink Panther fiasco.

I sat in the theater with 7 people. 3 walked out after seeing the preview for THE LORAX. That left me with 3 other brave souls. Did any of us laugh during the movie? We sure did when Al Pacino came on. Al goofed on himself as King Lear, Michael Corleone, Scent of A Woman and Scarface. Al also sings. He's in on the joke, unlike Sandler. The second Al leaves a scene, the picture goes back to sucking dead elephant dicks. Al had us laughing so hard it got to a 9 on the Richter scale. 

The wrong person was cast in the lead. It would have been a riot with Al Pacino as Jack and Jill. Sandler just sputtered around like a V8 engine firing on 2 cylinders. BTW--David Spade looked a lot more believable made up as a woman that Sandler did. 

Head Razz, I think it could be considered a "remake" of Glen or Glenda since there is an extended sequence when Jack dresses up and flirts as Jill. It's a shame Johnny Depp didn't give Sandler tips on how to wear Angora sweaters...

Before this, my first preference for RAZZING was Atlas Shrugged. I still believe Atlas Shrugged needs to be nominated, but Jack and Jill is in a CRASS (with the emphasis on ASS) all by itself!

Gosh I think for worst couple it should be Jack and Jill. 

Katie Holmes should be nominated for Worst Supporting Actress.

And you're correct about the ENTIRE cast should be nominated for Worst Ensemble, and their names should all be announced on the ballot and ceremony.

Text in red below is quoted for truth. I agree that Worst Ensemble Cast would be best because it would cover all the bases. I don't, however, think this should get more than this one nomination because we need to make way so other movies can get nominated.

I've finally seen the film. Loathe it. On a positive note, I did find my replacement for WAF.
The two-for-one offer seems like an awesome idea. It feels like Sandler is not asking for a Razzie, he's pushing for it.

This movie is a textbook definition of 'Razzie Bait'* (the polar opposite of Oscar Bait)...  
 
*We ought to use this term judging by the sort of films we're getting in at the moment!  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Actually, the funnier version (which we have used in the past) is "RAZZIE® Baiter"...

You see in this filmmaking world there's two types of people my friend. Those with the knowledge of film and those who think they do but really don't.

Hopefully HeadRAZZBerry can formally introduce us to the Gold Derby predictions that I just found in the page before the forum. They have predicted 6 films to sweep the nominations:

Jack & Jill
Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I
Just Go With It
Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son
Transformers: Dark of the Moon
 
Apparently they think Adam Sandler and his films will guzzle half the nominations. And about a quarter of them will rehash 2009's and 2010's worst film everyone saw. I see this as a serious lack of variety. This is a perfect reason for me to have asked for a RAZZIE voting membership for Christmas, and my votes will cover upwards of 30 different films.

I'm always a bit torn intellectually when I cast my ballot. There is always an opportunity for write-in nominations for truly deserving films not listed, and I have utilized that option. However, I realize that it is generally a waste of effort. I'm not immediately aware of a situation where a write-in has ever beaten out any nominees already  on the ballot.

Well, yeah. It's simple math. I figured that out the last time I voted for the People's Choice Awards.

It's all pretty unfunny, and leaves you too much time to wonder about other things. 
One of the last lines by Al Pacino in the film is, "Burn this", I agree with him.

I think this movie deserves these Razzie nominations: 

Worst Picture; Worst Actor (Adam Sandler); Worst Actress (Adam Sandler as Jill); 

Worst Supporting Actor (Nick Swardson unfunny as usual); Worst Supporting Actress (David Spade as Monica (irritating to watch)), Katie Holmes should also get a nomination. 

; Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel (seems to rip-off (better) movies of men dressing up as women); Dennis Dugan for Worst Director; Adam Sandler and Steve Koren for Worst Screenplay,
and Worst Screen Couple/Ensemble (Adam Sandler playing horrible twins).

I just had a potentially suicidal idea involving this movie: I have a free movie ticket and I'd like to try and see every Razzie movie before the big night.

"Box Office Guru! Breaking Dawn Threepeats Over Weak Frame

December 5, 2011 by SoCelebrities 

Finishing in sixth place was Adam Sandler's latest Razzie hopeful Jack and Jill which made an estimated $5.5M, down 45%, for a cume to date of $64.3M. The Sony release looks to end with $75-80M making it one of the actor's worst-performing broad comedies." 


"Sandler's latest Razzie hopeful!" It amuses me how the general public is starting to notice. Razzie-Buzz is kicking in.

Well, I'm back from the suffering known as this movie. My dad was nice enough to come with me and pay for it. I have to pay for Underworld: Awakening next weekend. So, I got off easy.LOL Because this is SO bad, it's not a nine worst moments list; it's a 12 worst moments list!
 
12.) Nick Swardson: Swardson isn't as bad here as he was in Just Go With It, but that's like saying that being beaten with rocks is being better than being beaten with maces. There's an unfunny sub-plot regarding his character's atheism. That being said, he has the second best scene in the movie. "God told me you had my feet on your desk." The best scene was when I daydreamed that the movie was actually the last act of Commando and Ah-nuld killed everyone. Jill was Bennett.
 
11.) Eugenio Derbez: Derbez plays Jack's gardener. His presence brings about a lot of racist jokes involving Hispanics.
 
10.) The cameos: There's a lot of idiotic cameos in the movie. Norm MacDOnald plays a potential suiter for Jill who eventually hides in the bathroom, a good idea for anyone forced to see this. Allen Covert plays the same homeless guy he played in Happy Gilmore. The Subway guy shows up in one scene. The ShamWow guy appears in a scene, presumably to regal the party of the time he beat the crap out of a hooker. And Sandler has embarrassing phots of Johnny Depp. That's the only explanation for Depp being seen in this.

9.) Katie Holmes: Man, she didn't do anything in this movie! Her role is very passive and she's just there for scenery dressing.

 
8.) David Spade as Monica: Why was (s)he here? His/Her scene is brief, but disturbing and illogical. Jill insults him, so (s)he attacks... Katie Holmes? Also, one of his/her friends is the guy from the Bucky Larson ads.
 
7.) Adam Sandler as Jack: I originally had him much lower, but he acts the most sane out of all of the unlikable characters. His acting is terrible, but he's the only one who seems to notice that Jill is a Satanic spawn. For noticing this, you're not in the top five.
 
6.) Jill's unfunny running gag: There's an impressively unfunny running gag involving Jill's poor memory skills when it comes to movie titiles. She forgets the names to It's A Wonderful Life, Pretty Woman, and Titanic.
 
5.) Al Pacino: Seriously, what the f*ck? Was he involved in the same photos that they have of Depp? His rap song near the end is spectacularily horrible!
 
4.) Dennis Dugan: What did our eyes do to deserve this guy? He makes horrible movies that intelligent people hate. His direction is easily his worst to date.
 
3.) The serious turn towards the end: Towards the end of the movie, the movie trys tug at your heartstrings. The only thing it tugs at is your gag reflex!
 
2.) The script: Steve Koren, Ben Zook, and Adam Sandler: look at yourselves in the mirror and ask yourself: "Why did I make this movie?"
 
1.) Adam Sandler as Jill: Jill is quite possibly the worst character on the history of cinema. She's worse than Jar Jar! She's worse than Skips and Mudflap! She's worse than Willie Scott! She's worse than Snails from D & D! She's worse than Christmas Jones! If they'd cast an actual actress as Jill, this movie wouldn't have been so horrific. But, Sandler was cast and we have the festering pile of sh*t before us now.
 
This is easily Sandler's worst movie. Let that sink in. Grade: Rotten Asshole
 
Next-up: Abduction!

Sandler always insists that his characters must have an attractve wife or girlfriend, even if it's not relevant to the plot.

My son Jay saw this at a birthday party (does the b'day boy want everyone to avoid his party next year?).  Jay is 13, so the ideal demographic for this, ahem, movie, but he HATED it.  And this is the kid who actually liked "I Am Number 4" and "The Darkest Hour."  
 
I'm not proud of Jay's lack of cinematic taste, but at least the kid has some standards.

Who is this guy Sandler paying to be able to appear in any entertainment medium. Maybe it is a New York, Jewish thing and I am not getting his humor but he is the worst example of an entertainer that I have ever seen in all of my 71 years on this earth. He is just not funny.

Listen up, people! Do I really have everyone's attention? Well... I just saw this movie! Unfortunately, I have a bunch of reviews in line.


If I really have everyone's attention, please remember everything you and I have been through over these past 2 years. Here it goes: I... don't... think... it... should... win Worst Picture. Whoa! Calm down. NEW YEAR'S EVE should win (I haven't seen BUCKY LARSON yet), because this actually had reedemable qualities:

1)For about half the movie I thought it could get better less bad. NEW YEAR'S EVE was awful from beginning to end.

2)I knew exactly what I was getting into. With NEW YEAR'S EVER I had expectations, specially since I almost liked VALENTINE'S DAY.

3)I'm sure you've heard about Al Pacino being good here, but no. He saved the movie. He shouldn't even be nominated. But NEW YEAR'S EVE had 20 stars and nobody was good, which is why it should also win Worst Ensemble.


As for the other categories:

-Actor: No. Like Nicolas Cage, Sandler phoned in both of his performances, but he was nothing compared to Taylor Lautner. Besides, with ABDUCTION, he prooved that after BREAKING DAWN PART 2, his career is over.

-Actress: Yes. My frontrunner was Sarah Jessica Parker for 2 very weak performances in 2 of the worst movies of the year, but even combined they were nothing against the atrocity of Sandler in drag. Even when we're meant to feel sorry for JILL, I couldn't, because she was still annoying. She really is one of the worst characters in movie history.

-Supp. Actor: I don't know. How do you decide that when someone is up for 2 movies and you think they deserve it for only 1? Nick Swardson was just meh, but in JUST GO WITH IT he was only a few miles away from being like JILL. But I choose him anyway because nobody else is a contender in my eyes (Ihaven't seen YOUR HIGHNESS yet).

-Supp. Actress: One of the categories where I've seen every nominee. I say no to Katie Holmes, because doesn't do anything... good or bad. David Spade showed potential of deserving the award if his role had been bigger... but it wasn't, so I'm still going with Brandon T: Jackson.

-Couple: The other categorie where I've seen every nominee. Honestly... I'm indifferent with this nominees.

-Director: Smae problem with Supp. Actor. Dennis Dugan's directing here sucks as usual, but his directing in JUST GO WITH IT was his best to date.

-Screenplay; Remake/Sequel: Oh, God. Yes! Although I haven't seen ARTHUR yet.
