No matter how much you want to see some movies, they still wind up being awful. The cast and crew don’t set out to make them awful, but somehow, between commissioning the script and the final edit, something goes horribly wrong – and we pay our hard-earned money to end up disappointed. In 2011, the following ten films were my biggest disappointments.
Adam Sandler fans are a forgiving bunch. His last two movies have been awful – and they’ve made great money. Sandler’s new movie, Jack & Jill, is a half-baked tale of the titular twins – Jack & Jill. It relies on Sandler staples like fart and poop jokes and mostly unfunny caricature. Overall, it feels like a rough draft – which immediately puts it ahead of Sandler’s last two efforts: the genuinely awful Grown Ups and the marginally better Just Go With It.
