Adam Sandler Sweeps Razzies
Adam Sandler has scored a new high (and low) among voters of the Razzies.
Not sure who actually saw “Jack and Jill” but Sandler’s 2011 flick managed a Razzies first, claiming 10 awards to sweep every single category.
Along with the movie’s worst-picture award, Sandler won for both worst actor and actress for his dual roles in “Jack and Jill,” in which he plays a family man and his own pesky twin sister.
“He didn’t play triplets, but he couldn’t have won more awards if he had,” said Razzies founder John Wilson.
It’s the only movie in the 32-year history of the Razzies to win every prize.
Sandler’s worst-actor prize came for both “Jack and Jill” and his earlier comedy “Just Go With It.” Dennis Dugan, the filmmaker behind both comedies, was named worst director for both movies.
“Jack and Jill” also was picked as worst remake, rip-off or sequel, billed by Razzies voters as a remake or rip-off of Ed Wood’s cross-dressing cult favorite “Glen or Glenda?”
“Adam Sandler has a pretty much basic attitude of, ‘No matter how dumb I make it, my fans are going to pay to see it,’” Wilson said. “I guess it’s more about the complete lack of any genuine effort or concern or pride. An attitude of this is good enough, but when you consider what they’re charging for movie tickets today, it wasn’t good enough.
“It was good enough to get our attention. If you work with the attitude that you’re just going to be good enough, then you’re probably good enough for the Razzies.”
