Adam Sandler has come under fire for his performance in movie 'Jack and Jill'.

The 45-year-old actor has been criticised for his double role of twins Jack Sadelstein and Jill Sadelstein in the comedy motion picture - which sees him star alongside Katie Holmes - with one critic describing him of suffering from "cinematic bipolar disorder".

A USA Today review explains: "It doesn't work. Sandler's Jill is such a honking Bronx battle-axe that she doesn't convince as a human character, male or female."

The film - which features speaking roles from Johnny Depp and Al Pacino - tells the story of Jill visiting Jack for Thanksgiving, but she ends up staying at his house for two months and wreaking havoc.

The review added: "Jill's home invasion takes us down some conventional comedy paths: She tries Mexican food that gives her uncontrollable diarrhea. She has gas issues. Her rear end is a threat to expandable fabric.

"But what makes Jack pseudo-watchable is the star lineup that was snookered into this train wreck."
