In Jack And Jill, Jack Sadelstein (Sandler) has his normal tranquil life turned upside down when his twin sister Jill (Sandler) arrives for a visit. (Gary Reber)

Special features include five featurettes: Laughing Is Contagious (HD 03:44), Look Who Stopped By (HD 08:33), Boys Will Be Girls (HD 03:44), Stomach Ache (HD 04:20), and Don't Call It A Boat—Royal Caribbean (HD 02:34); 13 deleted scenes (HD 19:07); up-front previews; and BD-Live functionality.

The 1080p AVC picture is brightly rendered with a fully saturated color palette. Contrast is excellent with deep, solid blacks and revealing shadow delineation. Hues are rich and warm with strong primaries. Fleshtones are naturally rendered. Resolution is generally revealing, especially during close-ups of facial features, hair, clothing, and object texture, but at times the imagery is softly focused. Overall, this is a pleasing visual experience with a bright, colorful appearance. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is conventionally produced with a frontal focus. Dialogue is predominant, with interior scenes dominating and sound naturally integrated. Atmospherics and sound effects are limited and subtle in presence. The music score is limited as well but is generally well recorded, with a subtle surround presence. A basketball game provides the only real aggressive surround envelopment. Overall, this is a mediocre soundtrack experience but serviceable for the comedic storytelling. (Gary Reber)
