Adam Sandler can ditch the high heels. His movie Jack and Jill, in which he played the twin siblings in the leading roles, turned out to be a bigger drag than anyone expected.
On Sunday night, the critical dud "won" 10 of the 12 Razzies for which it was nominated – a new Razzies record – being "dis-honored" in the categories of worst picture, actor and actress, supporting actress (David Spade as "Monica"), supporting actor (Al Pacino as himself), screen ensemble, director (Dennis Dugan), remake/rip-off (of Ed Wood's notorious Glen or Glenda), screen couple (Sandler and Katie Holmes and/or Al Pacino and/or himself).
"It's not really a clean sweep," Razzies founder John Wilson tells PEOPLE, explaining that the 12 total nominations for the movie included more than one in the supporting acting categories. "So it will go into the record books with an asterisk."

Adam Sandler isn't up for an Oscar this year, but his work did not go unrecognized.
The comedian, 45, has earned 11 nominations between three movies from the Golden Raspberry Awards – or the Razzies – which honor the worst in film.
But that's not the worst of it: Sandler's work – as either actor, writer or producer – on Jack & Jill, Bucky Larson and Just Go With It surpassed Eddie Murphy's old record of five nods. Sandler's nominations include worst picture, worst screen couple, worst screenplay, worst rip-off, worst actor, worst actress and worst screen ensemble.
