Imagine an awards show that made fun of shitty movies for being shitty, and they gave out awards to the worst actors, screenplays, and movies released that year. Now, imagine a movie so awful in every way, that it actually won every award at the ceremony. Well, it’s real now, because Adam Sandler‘s film Jack and Jill managed to win every category at the Razzie Awards this past weekend, proving what I’ve known for years: that Adam doesn’t care about making good movies anymore. The Huffington Post reports:
“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.”
The awards were announced at a gag ceremony Sunday night at a magic shop in Santa Monica, California. Razzie winners usually are announced the night before the Oscars, but organizers this time decided to move out of Hollywood’s busy awards season and do their show on April Fool’s Day.
A clean sweep basically means that the movie itself won Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay, Worst Ensemble, Worst Screen Couple, and Worst Prequel, Sequel or Rip-Off, since it was apparently a rip-off of Glen/Glenda in the same way dog shit is a rip-off of a hot fudge sundae. Adam won Worst Actor and Worst Actress, Al Pacino won Worst Supporting Actor,Katie Holmes won Worst Supporting Actress, and Dennis Dugan won Worst Director. So what are the chances Adam will stop taking vacations on a movie studio’s budget before slapping a tired concept over it and calling it a movie?
