    Adam Sandler stars a family man whose identical twin sister--played by Adam Sandler--comes for a visit that goes on forever, during which Al Pacino makes a play for her. Go ahead, read that again. Opens Nov. 11.

    Perhaps not since last summer's trailer for "Marmaduke" has a two-minute clip left us feeling so sad, angry and confused.

    "Jack and Jill" is an upcoming comedy starring Adam Sandler playing a man, Jack, and his own twin sister, Jill, and the first footage suggests that the end result is as bad as the idea itself. Of course Sandler plays a regular guy with a beautiful wife, Katie Holmes, and a couple of kids, and his sister is a brassy loudmouth who comes for an overlong visit, driving him crazy.

    And if that isn't bad enough, the film co-stars Al Pacino (yes, Al Pacino) as himself. Upon spotting Jill at a Lakers game, Pacino is so smitten that he has a hot dog sent over to her with a his phone number written in mustard and ketchup.

    All we can say is that these guys had better been doing some seriously life-changing charity work with the money they make on this film.

    "Jack and Jill" opens Nov. 11.
