Sorry, yeah, the title of this post is somewhat misleading. Sandler’s actually playing his own annoying twin sister in Jack and Jill (see trailer above if you dare). It’s already a lock to win whatever annual award they give out for Stupidest Hannukah-Themed Family Comedy Featuring A Man In Drag.

Select your favorite way to receive this information:

A) Total avoidance.

B) Exhausted sighing, leading to momentary depression, culminating in eating an entire bag of Oreos before taking a picture of your blackened teeth and posting it on Instagram.

C) Big yuks!

D) Anger over Sandler’s perceived misogyny, his films’ oafish handling of gender expression and general ignorance of how difficult it can be for non-gender-conforming people to simply get along in the world without some Hollywood zillionaire muddying the water via dumb Tyler Perry-level man-in-a-dress gags.

E) An alternate reading of Sandler’s entire body of work as a lowbrow effort to normalize all categories of human existence via aggressive idiocy, equal-opportunity mockery, flatulence, gross exaggeration, more flatulence, thoughtlessly crass jokes, vomit, horny grandmas and an approach to real life that resembles nothing any human on Earth has ever experienced. Examples of this as it applies to gays include: the entirety of I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, that male couple in Big Daddy, the elementary school principal/heroic closet-wrestler in Billy Madison, French maid Hitler getting raped with a pineapple in Little Nicky and Dave Matthews clenching a coconut with his butthole in Just Go With It. See? Progress.

Or not.
