The 32nd Annual Razzie Awards observed several momentous firsts Sunday night. The celebration of the worst in filmmaking held its Santa Monica, Calif. ceremony on April 1 — i.e. April Fools Day — for the first time, breaking from its tradition of presenting its honors on the night before the Academy Awards. And for the first time in Razzie history, one film “won” every single Golden Raspberry handed outJack and Jill.

Yup, the Adam Sandler comedy about an ad exec (Sandler) and his obnoxious sister (also Sandler) earned Worst Picture, Actor, Actress, Director, Screenplay, and even the “Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel” award. Apparently, the film is a “remake/rip-off of Ed Wood’s cross-dressing camp classic Glen or Glenda” — a conspicuously dubious claim that’s also pretty damn funny. In taking home the Worst Ensemble award, a category decided by readers of RottenTomatoes.com, the cast of Jack and Jill narrowly prevailed over The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1

Rather appropriately, the record-setting haul — voted on by the 657 members of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation — does come with an asterisk of sorts. Sandler won Worst Actor, and director Dennis Dugan won Worst Director, for both Jack and Jill and the romantic comedy Just Go With It. So even in infamy, one could say Jack and Jill is a failure.
