Gangster movies have long been a staple of the film industry, dating back to pretty much the beginning of cinema. Traditionally they have been a platform for great characters and stories, and are no stranger to awards. One of the more creative directors to burst onto the scene in the last few years is Ruben Fleischer, so it only feels appropriate that he gave the genre a shot with his latest movie, Gangster Squad. While colorful and entertaining, it isn’t destined to be timeless.

While there’s still a little more than a month and a half left in the year, and a good handful of movies left to be released, I’m going to go out there and say with confidence that Jack and Jill, the latest comedy starring Adam Sandler, is the worst movie of 2011. By a mile. Hell, by two miles. Not since Salt (2010) have I walked out of a theater being so thoroughly upset by how silly and stupid a movie was. This is an unfunny holiday comedy that can barely live up to the description of “mediocre.” It does not give the audience—or itself—any kind of respect. There were times where I wanted to turn to the person next to me and ask how they could possibly stay in their seat throughout the duration of this mess. This movie does not deserve a bad review.
