Even I can tolerate Adam Sandler’s infantile comedies, I like a couple of them in a retarded forgot-my-brains-at-home way. “50 First Dates” (2004) and “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan” (2007) are two that lets me get harmlessly in touch with my inner idiot. I’m ashamed to admit that Sandler’s mucous-afflicted voice in “Little Nicky” (2000) is… sort of hilarious. I am not proud about that one.

But some of Sandler’s flicks from the Happy Madison factory are just nightmares, like “I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry” (2007) or “Mr. Deeds” (2002) or any of his early ones. “Jack and Jill” in theaters this Fall looks like one of those nightmares. Somebody on YouTube chummily put a video together of splicing George C. Scott from “Hardcore” (1978) as he watches this newest travesty where Sandler is going to play a dual role of brother and sister – in drag.

BTW: In the 1978 “Hardcore,” Scott plays a father who indignantly discovers that his missing daughter has been making XXX porno movies. Paul Schrader’s film starts grippingly, has a ravaged and torn-heart Scott performance, but descends into clichés and archetypal trackdowns.
