Remember the good old days? Back when girls were girls and men were men. (PS: We sure could use a man like Herbert Hoover again.)
Anyway, one of the staples of said good days was the Scantron test. As a kid, this was about as good as a test could get. You got multiple choices, you got to fill in a bunch of circles, teachers got to put their feet up and let a machine do the grading for them. Everybody won.
The only downside to the Scantron test? That nagging feeling that after you’d filled in three “C” answers in a row that the next one couldn’t possibly be “C.” Sure enough, you’d read the question and think “The answer’s C!” But no. That little voice in your head kept saying “What are the odds the teacher would put four “C’s” in a row like that? Then you’d end up picking “A” because you hadn’t used it in like 10 questions even though you were 90% it was a joke answer.
Yeah, that’s basically what happened with my Razzie predictions. My gut told me to go “Jack and Jill” across the board, but the sight of all those pictures of Sandler’s ugly mug in a row seemed wrong. So I tacked on a British supermodel and Ken Jeong and braced for impact.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have impact. I mean, it wasn’t all bad. I still managed to go 5-7 with my pre-Razzie predictions. Not too shabby really.
Sander’s poopfest, “Jack and Jill” made history and swept every single solitary category at the 32nd Annual Golden Raspberry Awards, a celebration of the worst Hollywood has to offer.
No other film had ever done that. Touche, Mr. S.
Sandler took home Worst Actor and Worst Actress trophies for his dual roles as the titular brother and sister.
Katie Holmes and Al Pacino each took home Worst Supporting… nods for their roles in the film.
The three thespians also shared the Worst Screen Couple award and the Worst Ensemble Award, as well.
