Same Goes For You Al Pacino



With last year's "Grown Ups" we thought we had reached the nadir of Adam Sandler's laziness, a "movie" in which he conned Sony into paying for his best buddies and him to hang out, act like retards and get rewarded handsomely for the privilege. But it seems he has reached an ever lower standard than we thought possible.

The trailer for his next film "Jack And Jill" has arrived and yes, while he is playing both lead roles (Adam Sandler in a wig and speaking with a lisp! Hilarious!) he's secretly made it so that his only acting now is simply doing funny faces in reaction shots. Running a dreadfully long two and a half minutes, it's practically a sizzle reel of Sandler doing bug eyes, scrunching his face and looking annoyed. Such depth. And don't even let us get started on Al Pacino -- playing himself no less -- as we just wonder how on Earth he or his agent or his friends or even random strangers allowed him to agree to do this. It's beyond embarrassing. We'd rather he made a dozen more movies with 50 Cent.

Ordinarily, we tell you not to bother but there is something so perverse about how utterly wretched this is, you kind of have to see it for yourself. Check it out below.
