Boise movie buffs (at least those trekking to Redbox DVD kiosks) can't seem to get enough of Adam Sandler and Adam Sandler. The SNL alum co-stars with himself in his comedy Jack and Jill. The new release was the most-rented Redbox film in the Boise metro area for the week ending March 11.
The ridiculously silly (and sometimes outright hilarious) comedy has Sandler playing dual lead roles as Jack, a laid-back family man dreading his yearly visit from an obnoxious and demanding twin sister Jill, who becomes a permanent fixture in Jack's household.
The 21st century reboot of the musical Footloose also danced its way into many Boise homes, making it the second most-rented Redbox DVD for the week. This modern rendition features Julianne Hough from Dancing with the Stars, newcomer Kenny Wormald and veteran actor Dennis Quaid. When city boy Ren (Wormald) moves to a conservative town where rock 'n' roll and dancing have been banned, he decides to shake things up. Local country girl Ariel (Hough) and friends join the dance revolution much to the dismay of her dad (Quaid).
In Time, Hugo and Puss in Boots (all previous Redbox DVD top picks) remained popular choices, completing the top five. Newer selections rounded out the Top 10: The Big Year, Like Crazy, The Rum Diary, The Thing and Dream House.
If you need a good laugh but Jack and Jill is all checked out, you may want to consider another Sandler option like Just Go With It or Funny People. If you're a fan of Sandler's older work, Redbox also offers the cute comedy hit Big Daddy.
