Jack and Jill

Trivia: Originally, the production wanted Starbucks to be the company featured in the film, but Starbucks refused to be associated with the movie in any way. As originally scripted, Al Pacino would have done his rap about the Starbucks "frappuccino" drinks. The production then managed to land a deal with Dunkin Donuts as a backup plan, and they re-wrote "frappuccino" as "dunkacchino."


Trivia: Considered by many to be one of the worst films made, it "won" a Golden Raspberry for all 12 categories, including worst rip-off/remake. It's considered a rip-off "Glen or Glenda" (1953). "Glen or Glenda" (written and directed by and starring Ed Wood) was also considered one of the worst films made. In Michael and Harry Medved's 1980 book "The Golden Turkey Awards", Ed Wood "won" Worst Director.


Continuity mistake: At the Thanksgiving dinner scene Jill is explaining her and Jack's secret language, and says that clappa means left. However at the end of the movie during the New Year's scene Monica is approaching her with a bottle from the right side and Jack says "Pokey clappa", at which Jill throws up her right arm to knock out Monica.
