HIS TWIN SISTER IS COMING FOR THE HOLIDAYS… AND IT AIN’T PRETTY.
L.A. ad executive Jack Sadelstein (Adam Sandler) is less than thrilled that his twin sister Jill is coming to spend Thanksgiving with his family – but she might be his ticket to success. If you can’t get enough of Sandler, why not have a double dose? His drag performance never really turns into a credible character, even though there’s a few amusing scenes. Most of it is uninspired nonsense, with Al Pacino playing himself and having as much fun as Jack Nicholson did with Sandler in Anger Management (2003).
