Review: ‘Jack and Jill’ Go Up the Hill to Find Product Placement and a Moronic …

The initial moments of Jack and Jill, a new comedy in which Adam Sandler plays twins, filled me with a small measure of hope. The opening montage of twins talking about their relationships was a nice touch. For its first few minutes, Sandler’s drag routine was actually funny. Maybe this wouldn’t be the cavalcade of self-parodying garbage that its trailer seemed to promise.

Alas, poor Sandler, ’twas not to be. After all, this is a Happy Madison production, ensconced in Dennis Dugan land, where once-young comic actors fast approaching middle age still make the same basic movies they were making fifteen years ago. Only now, they movies are worse.

Sandler’s the ring leader of this motley company of thespians, which includes regulars Nick Swardson, Allen Covert and Tim Meadows, as well as stalwart Rob Schneider, who’s credited on IMDb but who I don’t recall actually being in the movie.

Sandler deserves a lot of credit for being loyal to his friends. It’s an admirable trait and a rare one in Hollywood. Somehow, he roped Al Pacino into things this time around, so good on him for that.

But man oh man, why did he think playing cross-gender twins was a good idea? As Jack and Jill Sadelstein, siblings brought together for the holidays, the actor combines his familiar everyman shtick with a drag act that becomes so excruciatingly unpleasant it inspires involuntary shudders and post-traumatic nightmares.

His Jill is a giant ball of close-minded neuroses, unfiltered yapping and unhygienic personal habits. The movie treats her with sneering condescension. Time and again, the screenplay by veteran writer Steve Koren reminds us how repulsive she is, how utterly unattractive and, well, dude-like. She’s a nightmarish, monstrous caricature of a New York Jewish stereotype, the poor man’s Linda Richman with major gas problems and a propensity for “dropping chimichanga bombs.” No man wants her, she complains, and really, we can’t blame them.

There’s not much of a narrative here and only the vaguest outline of a plot. Jill visits Jack and his family, including wife Erin (Katie Holmes) and their two kids, and stays indefinitely. At the same time, ad agency honcho Jack needs Al Pacino (playing a heightened version of himself) to agree to a Dunkin Donuts endorsement. At a Lakers game, Pacino is instantly stricken by Jill, in whom he sees a kindred spirit, the Dulcinea to his Don Quixote, as the movie tells us innumerable times.

So, yes, the entire flick is one long corporate shill for the omnipresent donut chain. Royal Caribbean gets to feel the warm glow of the endorsement spotlight as well. And yes, if you do somehow find your way to this movie, you weren’t dreaming: Al Pacino really does show up to a bar dressed as the Man of La Mancha. He really does do battle with a ceiling fan. He also (spoiler alert, I guess) refers to “Scarface” in a rap about Dunkin Donuts, as if he wanted to make this spectacle even sadder than it already was.

I’ll never understand what could inspire a legend to participate in this dreck. Sandler is by all accounts a nice guy and he’s probably very persuasive, but that doesn’t quite explain this. Yet there the Oscar-winning icon is, tickle torturing the star while Sandler plays Jack dressed in drag and pretending to be Jill.

The movie is so misshapen it’s barely even a movie, but more of a one-joke gag reel filled with walk-ons and other brief appearances from the usual friends of Sandler (John McEnroe, Dan Patrick etc.). It’s a lot of witless lowest common denominator humor combined with excruciatingly broad characterizations, extraordinary condescension and a lazily applied moral that’s completely unearned.

In that sense, Jack and Jill has a lot in common with much of Sandler’s recent output, which has increasingly begun to feel like the work of a man who has stopped trying to make movies worth seeing and started chasing the easy profit. Movies such as the recent Just Go with It and Grown Ups are more slapdash, forced and, well, amateurish than Sandler’s earliest output.

There’s a method to the madness in Billy Madison, for example, with Sandler’s performance an avant garde, performance art rendition of suspended adolescence that carries the movie through its unfocused peaks and valleys.

Now, the joy radiated by the younger, energetic Sandler is gone, leaving only the wreckage and the sad specter of a once top-notch talent desperately clinging to the glory days of yore.

The Upside: There are a few funny moments.

The Downside: The movie is one long example of product placement, with a moronic and condescending story.

On the Side: Watch Sandler’s November 9 appearance on Letterman. It’s way more entertaining than the movie.

Bonafide Face Product Review: Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel

I’m often told that I don’t look as if I need an acne cleanser—and that’s the whole point. I want to keep breakouts at bay, so my acne-prone skin can remain inconspicuous.

Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel is my latest pimple-fighting cleanser of the month. And I must say, this acne gel cleanser is making it difficult for next month’s successor!

Here are the details for Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel:

The claim:

Get a satisfying deep down cleanse with Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel, a penetrating facial wash that won’t strip your skin. Salicylic acid purifies your pores and sloughs away dead skin while controlling sebum production. This soap-free formula also contains soothing eperuline and glycyrrhizinate acid to reduce inflammation and redness, promoting a clear, matte complexion.

My Results:
You can’t help but to notice the large, green bottle near my sink being mistaken for hand cleanser. An acne cleanser this size (at this price) is a rarity and a dead ringer for not being effective, or so I thought. I was dead wrong.

One strong pump of the clean scent gel cleanser is enough to slather across my entire face. The Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel lathers quickly and without burning or any other irritations.

I’m battling acne, so I don’t want to worry about blotchiness or red spots afterwards. A quick rinse reveals a squeaky clean (think after toner feel) but not tight face.

After three weeks, I noticed my skin was calm, less flared with acne, and smoother. Great results, with only using a minimal amount of the cleanser–just my kind of acne cleanser.

Cons: None

A Review of Chicken of the Sea Salmon Cups: 80 Calories

I love salmon and when I came across a pack of Chicken of the Sea salmon cups in my local favorite grocery store, I was thrilled. These looked so good! I decided to purchase them, try them out and write a product review all about my personal experience with them. Here is what I discovered!

I bought one Chicken of the Sea salmon cups pack for around two dollars. Each pack has two individual serving sized cups in it. The lure of this product, for me, was that it is portable. It also requires no refrigeration. These are easy to take on the go with me and great for bag lunches. I discovered that these are low cal, low in fat, protein rich and omega 3 rich, also. This salmon is wild caught. I love many Chicken of the Sea brand food products. I could not wait to taste this one!

This salmon is very different from canned salmon. It is pink salmon, but it is boneless and skinless. You also do not need to drain this salmon before eating. Fabulous! It is packed in water. When I tasted this salmon, I loved it! It is great right from the cup. In large chunks and very tasty. The bright pink color is spectacular, as is the flavor of this salmon. It has a clean taste and reminds me a bit of tuna, but with salmon. This is a very cool product. I like having it plain, but I also like it with sauce and ketchup. Served with crackers, it is delicious. I can also add a bit of mayo to the cup and make a quick on the go salmon salad. This is a great travel snack. It can be easily eaten and it is filling. Not to mention healthy.

Law Blog Product Review: An iPhone App for PACER

There are several reasons to loathe PACER (short for Public Access to Court Electronic Records), the federal judiciary’s database of electronic court records.

The first — and man do I hate it for this — is the lack of a full text search. If you don’t have a case number or a party name, you’re flying blind. The second is the price: 8 cents a page. Imagine if Congress tried to charge that amount to access the Congressional Record.

FedCtRecords, a new iPhone app crafted around PACER, fixes neither of these issues, but how could it? It does, however, take the very middling PACER desktop experience and replicates it on the iPhone, with no major loss in translation (except the ability to file documents; the app only allows users to review). The docket report is there, in all its glory. You can access attorney numbers and emails directly from the “attorney” or “parties” screens, and save them to your contacts.

One of the app’s few bells is a feature that allows you to save cases of interest in a virtual briefcase. For a reporter, it’s a handy way to track cases in districts that still don’t allow media to receive email alerts when new filings are made in cases of interest. (Another reason I’m not a PACER fan: inconsistency across judicial districts.) For lawyers, I imagine the app could be useful as a means to track cases in which they are interested but have no involvement. The app doesn’t ping you when new filings are made, but at least it groups all your cases one place.

Once you accept charges to view a document, you can email it anywhere. FedCtRecords won’t allow you to search all courts at once, as the PACER Case Locator does. But the locator is now optimized for mobile devices, so you can use it in conjunction with the app, which isn’t ideal, but that’s life.

FedCtRecords was brought to my attention by Newton Oldfather, who told Law Blog he is a recent graduate of UCLA Law who spent the summer creating the app with his father and a friend. The app will be paid, but Oldfather said he made it free for the holidays. Of course, you still have to have a PACER account to use the app. Eight cents a page.

Review: ‘War Horse’ hammers home the emotions

Just in time for family-friendly holiday feel-goodery is Steven Spielberg‘s sweeping, historical epic “War Horse.”

It’s a story that began life as a children’s book by Michael Morpurgo, then made its way to the London and New York stages to great acclaim featuring inventive puppetry, and now arrives in theaters with all the grandeur a master filmmaker can conjure. “War Horse” features a strong cast and the sort of impeccable production values you would expect from Spielberg — that trademark, mystical lighting, the product of his longtime collaboration with Oscar-winning cinematographer Janusz Kaminski.

And yet it’s overlong, painfully earnest and sometimes even hokey. Clearly, Spielberg intended “War Horse” as a throwback, an homage to good, old-fashioned, heartrending storytelling, full of recognizable types and uplifting themes. The skies are so impossibly colorful in such a retro way, they look like hand-painted backdrops on a soundstage. And the dialogue is so frequently on-the-nose and repetitive, it might just make you cringe.

Yes, the horse is remarkable — of course he is — that’s why they made a movie about him. That should have been obvious to us through the action alone, yet the script (from Lee Hall and Richard Curtis) feels the need to tell us again and again that he is a “remarkable” horse.

The majestic Joey comes into the lives of a struggling British farming family just before World War I. The alcoholic father (Peter Mullan) buys him at auction, even though he knows he can’t afford him; the long-suffering mother (Emily Watson) insists he return him and get the family’s money back. But plucky teenager Albert (good-looking newcomer Jeremy Irvine) begs to keep him and promises to train him. Cue the montage.

Although Joey is clearly a spectacular creature, the father ends up selling him to the British cavalry because the family needs the money. Albert is devastated and swears they’ll meet again; the conscientious captain (Tom Hiddleston), who immediately recognizes Joey’s greatness and chooses him as his own mount, promises to take good care of him until then.

Joey, meanwhile, thrives once more in this new setting on the front lines. And these moments are some of the film’s best — the ones where the Spielberg of “Saving Private Ryan” comes shining through. An overhead shot of row after row of soldiers saddling up as one while hidden in a wheat field is especially stirring, as is their subsequent ambush on a German encampment. The battle scenes are reliably visceral and well-staged, albeit in a sanitized way. Even a race between Joey and the impressive horse belonging to the cocky major (Benedict Cumberbatch) provides a quick, thunderous thrill.

There’s a reason so many movies get made about horses: They’re beautiful, powerful creatures, and the pounding of hooves gets your heart pounding, as well.

But speaking of Joey and his new rival, their relationship represents one of the more cloying aspects of “War Horse”: the incessant anthropomorphism of these animals. Would they really achieve a hard-won respect for each other and end up protecting one another in the thick of battle? Maybe. Maybe not. But the human assumption that they would just for the sake of furthering the narrative is sort of obnoxious.

Eventually, Joey changes hands again and ends up living on a farm with an adorable but sickly French girl (Cecile Buckens) and her doting grandfather (Niels Arestrup). But then he’s captured once more — this time by the Germans — and forced to fight again. This sets up the film’s best scene by far, in which a British soldier and a German soldier find Joey entangled in some barbed wire in no-man’s land and work together to free him.

It’s a tense, quiet exchange that ultimately reveals some much-needed humanity, and it could have ended on just the right note — but then “War Horse” goes and ruins it by adding one line too many, just to remind us of how “remarkable” Joey is.

“War Horse,” a Walt Disney Pictures release, is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of war violence. Running time: 146 minutes. Two stars out of four.

Nokia and Microsoft fingered over comments on adverse Lumia review

A Nokia employee and, apparently, another from Microsoft have been caught posting anonymous comments boosting their product on a review of the new Nokia Lumia 800 phone using Microsoft’s new Windows Phone software.

The review, posted on the site in India, was not based on a hands-on review of the product but only its technical specifications, in which it was compared principally to Samsung’s Galaxy S Plus handset.

The reviewer, Yogesh Sapkale, concluded – perhaps brutally, since he hadn’t laid a finger on the phone – that ” Although Nokia sees its Lumia 800 to be a competitor to Apple iPhone [sic], it is nowhere near the niche product. In fact compared with iPhone, the Lumia 800 can be termed as ‘noPhone’.”

A number of commenters on the article were unimpressed – including one who called himself Harish. “What an crap review!! it’s one of the best phone available, iphone is so dumb compared to this…. Guess some one is paying you lumpsum, congrats..”, he wrote.

He posted his comment from the iP address of – which belongs to Nokia.

Another commenter calling himself Aditya Agrawal wrote: “dude, gone are the times when actual consumers just use to care about the technical specificiations of mobiles. today, people want devices which are beauitful, fast and easy-to-use. for most of the consumers, it does not matter if the phone has 512mb or 1gb ram. if the 512mb performs better in real-life, that’t the one customers are gonna prefer. just a small advice [sic], go to a store and use windows phone 7.5 for 10 mins, the last thing you will care is whether the phone has a single or a dual core.”

Agrawal posted from the IP address of – which apparently belongs to Microsoft. (That IP address seems to have been used to make a number of unwelcome edits to Wikipedia; many have been reverted.)

A number of other commenters were – to say the least – nonplussed at Sapkale’s decision to “review” the phone based only on its specifications (although it’s worth noting that some western gadget sites aren’t above writing “first look” and “review” pieces which do exactly the same, but without the disclaimer).

Sapkale, who revealed the data about the users’ IP addresses in a followup post, justified his unusual approach to reviewing it on the basis that he was doing a feature comparison for price-sensitive consumers. “India is a very price sensitive market when it comes to spending hard earned money,” he wrote. “This is the mistake many manufacturers, especially from the western countries, has made in India. Obviously they are still paying the price for this overlook. Most Indians prefer to save money and then spend it rather than taking credit for a smartphone that may cost them a month’s salary. It is the same reason why iPhone 4S, which is available at Rs42,000″ – equivalent to £534, only slightly more than the UK price – “is still unable to see better sales in India.”

Nobody has come out of the episode looking good. Sapkale was accused of breaking his own site’s privacy policy by posting the IP and email addresses of the commenters, while the commenting duo’s failure to declare any interest looked, at best, like astroturfing.

Microsoft, Nokia linked to comments on negative Lumia review

Microsoft and Nokia have been linked to the posting of astroturfing comments on a negative Nokia Lumia review.

The review of the Nokia Lumia 800, posted on the Indian Web site, was based on the technical specifications rather than hands-on experience with the Windows Phone device. The review concluded that “Although Nokia sees its Lumia 800 to be a competitor to Apple
iPhone [sic], it is nowhere near the niche product. In fact compared with iPhone, the Lumia 800 can be termed as ‘noPhone’.”

Many commenters were unhappy with the review. However, the tenor of the comments attracted the attention of Yogesh Sapkale, the review’s author, who described what he saw as “orchestrated pile of comments.”

The first comment came from someone named “Harish”:

“What an crap review!! it’s one of the best phone available, iphone is so dumb compared to this…. Guess some one is paying you lumpsum, congrats..”

Sapkale said the IP address associated with the comment was, which is assigned to Nokia.

Another comment, from someone named Aditya Agrawa, addresses a question of RAM:

“dude, gone are the times when actual consumers just use to care about the technical specificiations of mobiles. today, people want devices which are beauitful, fast and easy-to-use. for most of the consumers, it does not matter if the phone has 512mb or 1gb ram. if the 512mb performs better in real-life, that’t the one customers are gonna prefer. just a small advice , go to a store and use
windows phone 7.5 for 10 mins, the last thing you will care is whether the phone has a single or a dual core.”

Sapkale said Agrawa’s comment originated from, an IP address assigned to Microsoft.

Nokia and Microsoft representatives did not respond to requests for comment.

Taken altogether, the whole episode is a disaster. Two companies are accused–by the author of a product review who never touched the device–of efforts to boost the profile of their product without acknowledging their association to it.

But more troubling is the fact that the author of the review thought so little of his readers’ privacy that he looked up and published their e-mail and IP addresses to satisfy his own curiosity and need for vindication.

HairGenesis® Blows Whistle On Fake Hair Loss Product Review

Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) December 21, 2011

In a move designed to shine a spotlight on the dishonesty presently circulating across the internet, the parent company of HairGenesis®, Advanced Restoration Technologies Inc. (ART) today announced its intention to devote a substantial share of its effort to shutting down fake hair loss product comparison websites. Because pattern hair loss can trigger highly emotional near-panic, the hair loss product consumer is often vulnerable and not always well-informed. Preying on such persons, a number of hair product marketers have published fake hair loss product comparison websites. Unfortunately, the industry dishonesty has proven remarkably successful.

According to Hair Genesis

“Here’s how the ploy works. A hair loss treatment product manufacturer enlists a third party to set up a website with a url that gives the impression that it is an objective third party consumer review entity. The website is populated with text and images that purport to compare a number of hair loss treatment brands, including the product brand secretly sponsoring the website. Fake data is published which supposedly shows that the sponsoring brand outperformed other brands in a series of analyses.”

Links are embedded in the website which lead to various product brands. Sometimes the links leading to the competing brands are deliberately rendered inactive. Invariably, the links leading to the sponsor brand go through just fine. By this method, consumers are tricked into making a purchase for a product that they mistakenly believe to have demonstrated objective evidence of clinical utility. There are variations on this ploy, but the endpoint of the scam is always the same, i.e. to cause consumers to place unfounded trust in a product that generates sales through the art of deception. These websites are almost always dead-end entities — i.e. with no way to easily verify who is the actual publisher of the site. However, it is not hard to figure out that the company that wins the comparison is almost certainly the same company behind the so-called ‘consumer review’ website.

By way of contrast, HairGenesis® is supported with actual peer-reviewed, published scientific research (e.g. Chief Scientific Officer for the company, Geno Marcovici, Ph.D. says that “unfortunately, from the consumer’s vantage point, objective proof such as that supporting the HairGenesis® line is a rarity in the category”. In instituting a policy designed to go after the fake hair loss comparison websites, HairGenesis® seeks to create a better protected and more well-informed buying public.

In furtherance of this goal, HairGenesis® will work to establish sensible truth-in-advertising guidelines, create positive working conduits with the FTC and FDA, and also make available genuine hair loss information, hair loss research links, as well as other proactive steps. Cumulatively, the intention of this process will be to reward those hair treatment product manufacturers who ‘play fair’ and penalize those who do not.

Hair Genesis® is noteworthy as the first, and so far only, naturally derived hair loss treatment supported by published 3rd Party clinical research. Hair Genesis™ is sold primarily through internet based distribution via Distributors of Hair Genesis® include,,

Forget The Mobile Reference Designs, Intel, And Ship A Product

Intel has been showing off reference designs—which are essentially prototypes the company builds for potential partners like those McMansion model homes—related to mobile devices since the middle of the last decade, yet no one has shipped a mobile device in any kind of real volume bearing one of Intel’s mobile processors. In advance of CES, where Intel CEO Paul Otellini is scheduled to deliver a keynote address, the company once again showed off prototypes for a smartphone and tablet running Android to Technology Review and promised to have real phones out sometime next year.

There’s nothing wrong with the designs themselves except for the fact that they’ll never become actual products. They are marketing tools designed to persuade the industry that Intel understands how to meet the needs of the modern mobile market.

Yet Intel’s mobile problems have nothing to do with design or vision: a decade ago the company was regularly predicting the types of mobile computers we now take for granted. They have everything to do with software and execution.

There’s a fundamental problem for Intel in mobile. Virtually all software created for modern mobile devices has been designed to run on chips that use the ARM instruction set, making them incompatible with the x86 instruction set that Intel uses in its PC processors and mobile designs. An Android app written for a phone like the Galaxy Nexus won’t necessarily run with acceptable performance on an Android phone with Intel’s chips. Even Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) bowed to this inevitability last year, announcing plans to release a version of Windows 8 that runs on ARM processors.

And Intel’s execution problems have not given anyone—handset makers, software developers or design houses—a reason to overcome “platform fatigue” and develop phones and applications for yet another platform. Intel has had an extremely difficult time getting its chips to consume power at the same small levels that ARM chips can hit, which means phone makers would have had to ship bulkier devices with poorer battery life than designs like the iPhone. Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) decided to design and build its own mobile chips rather than work with Intel, which supplies it with chips for the Mac.

The company says that chips based on the current design, code-named Medfield, have finally met that threshold based on its decision to combine the duties of formerly separate chips into a single chip. But as Technology Review points out, Intel still lags companies like Qualcomm (NSDQ: QCOM) when it comes to further integration, which is favored by handset makers because such chips consume less power and are easier to include in tight spaces.

Intel has been “fighting back” and “getting ready to challenge” the threat posed by ARM chips since 2007 with absolutely nothing to show for that talk, which is probably why there has been a revolving door on the office of its mobile leaders.

Until Intel convinces a major smartphone or tablet maker to place a big bet on its Medfield chips with something that can truly compete against top-tier Android phones and the iPhone, it’s safe to ignore “reference designs” and concentrate on the 450 million devices that will have been sold this year without Intel inside. We’ll see what promises Otellini will make this year about mobile in January.
