Movie Reviewer Andy McKinney says "Jack and Jill" faces uphill battle financially

Andy McKinney gives this Adam Sandler film 3 Sawblades, says it's right on track for a Sandler flick with the usual jokes and more than enough laughs, some good actors, including Al Pacino playing himself. The problem is, the competition, and the amount of cash the producers put into this. "Jack and Jill" has quite a hill to climb to recoup $79 million.
Andy says, "'Jack and Jill' gets an average three saw blades, which is above my usual grade for a Sandler film.  It runs for an hour and a half plus one minute.  It has taken in a substantial $46 million in two weeks.  This is a good accomplishment with Twilight sucking up all the ticket booth oxygen for the last few days.  It might not be enough.  The producers went nuts and spent $79 million to make this one and will have to work very hard to get their money back.   Sandler is worth $300 million.  Maybe he can afford to wait until the TV re-runs pay off somewhere down the financial road."
