QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: A successful family man must deal with his annoying twin sister extending her annual Thanksgiving visit through New Year's.
PLOT:
Jack Sadelstein (ADAM SANDLER) is a successful advertising director in Los Angeles with a large home; a beautiful wife, Erin (KATIE HOLMES); and two kids, the precocious Sofia (ELODIE TOUGNE) and the adopted, intuitive Gary (ROHAN CHAND). There's one time of the year he dreads, though, and that's Thanksgiving when his shrill, annoying twin sister Jill (also ADAM SANDLER) comes to visit.

Jill is the type that has never gotten married, never had kids, and never moved out of the parents' home. But with the death of Jack and Jill's father years earlier and the recent passing of their mom, she is alone. She arrives with an open-ended plane ticket and a knack for worming her way into Erin and the kids' hearts. They want her to stay. Jack wants her gone...that is, until film star Al Pacino (HIMSELF) falls head over heels in love with Jill.

Jack and his assistant Todd (NICK SWARDSON) want desperately to convince Pacino to appear in a Dunkin' Donuts TV commercial that will win his firm a lucrative account with the restaurant chain. But, after a disastrous Internet date with a rude man named Funbucket (NORM MacDONALD), Jill only has eyes for Jack's jovial, blue-collar landscaper, Felipe (EUGENIO DERBEZ). Jack goes to increasingly desperate lengths to bring Jill and the borderline demented Pacino together, even donning his sister's clothes and impersonating her to get the deal done.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Yes. It's being touted as a family comedy with its PG rating. For an Adam Sandler movie, it's actually pretty clean.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For crude material including suggestive references, language and comic violence.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
