Did You Know?
Dana Carvey's first theatrical movie appearance in 9 years.
'The Allure of the Seas' never cruises in Europe. It only takes cruisers to the eastern and western Caribbean.

Oh my god, I'm sure you have others.
You'd think it, but oddly enough, I don't.
Deserves to be Erased from Film History
I will start by saying that I have enjoyed many Adam Sandler movies and
have found him to be a generally funny guy when I've seen him
interviewed and when he was on Saturday Night Live.
I laughed gleefully through Anger Management, Mr. Deeds, Billy Madison,
50 First Dates, and Happy Gilmore. Funny People and Just Go With It
were awesome movies! I was brought to tears in Sandler's emotional
portrayal in Reign Over Me.
I have great respect for the man as a comedian and actor. But Jack and
Jill is abysmal. The "jokes" are not only bizarrely misplaced – THEY
ARE NOT FUNNY. I did not hear a single laugh, not even a slight giggle
from any audience member in the theater. In fact, almost 1/3 of them
walked out before it was over. Those who stayed, openly derided the
flick as we all exited the theater in utter disgust and sadness.
I don't know why Al Pacino was in this movie, his acting made it seem
like he was forced at gun point to do this movie. Nick Swardson and Tim
Meadows are way too funny to be in such a disaster. Especially given
Swardson's stellar performance in Just Go With It.
This movie is not a flop, its not an "oops", its not a mistake – it's a
career ending pile of trash. A career ender that started with Sandler's
god awful "Grown Ups" and climaxes with this revolting hunk of garbage.
Sorry Adam, it's over.
