‘Jack and Jill pulls off unprecedented sweep of Razzie Awards

Jack and Jill,” the Adam Sandler gender-bending comedy, won all 10 categories at the Razzie Awards on Sunday. This marks the first time in the 32-year history of these kudos honoring the worst of Hollywood that one movie has swept the board. (See full list of winners here.)

Sandler, who had prevailed with just one of his nine previous Razzie bids (Worst Actor: “Big Daddy,” 1999), won both Worst Actor and Worst Actress for playing the two title roles. 

Al Pacino, who has an Oscar, two Emmys and two Tonys, can now add a Razzie to his awards collection as he won Worst Supporting Actor for playing a version of himself in this limp laffer. 

To win Worst Supporting Actress, cross-dressing David Spade had to overcome fierce competition from “Jack and Jill” co-star Katie Holmes as well as one-time underwear model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley who contended for her film debut in “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.”

After two losses, Dennis Dugan won Worst Director for helming both of Sandler’s  2011 cinematic gems — “Jack and Jill” and “Just Go With It.” He edged out another three-time contender Michael Bay (“Transformers: Dark of the Moon”).

Sandler was part of the team — along with Ben Zook and Steve Koren — that scripted “Jack and Jill” which won Worst Screenplay. He also shared in Worst Couple, with Holmes, Pacino and himself. 

Such was the love, or is that loathing, for “Jack and Jill” that it bested “Breaking Dawn: Part 1,” the fourth film in the “Twilight” franchise, to win Worst Remake/Rip-off/Sequel. And it bested the all-star cast of “New Year’s Eve” to claim Worst Ensemble.
