SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 1 (UPI) -- "Jack and Jill," a big-screen comedy starring Adam Sandler as the titular twin siblings, "won" 10 Razzie Awards at a Santa Monica ceremony Sunday night.

The movie is the first to sweep all categories in the Razzies' 32-year history.

It was named Worst Picture of 2011, while Sandler was declared Worst Actor and Worst Actress, and the cast was dubbed Worst Ensemble.

Sandler's Oscar-winning co-star Al Pacino earned the Worst Supporting Actor accolade and David Spade, appearing in drag in a cameo in the flick, picked up the Worst Supporting Actress trophy.

Inspired by Ed Wood's "Glen or Glenda," the film also garnered the distinction of Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel and was recognized for Worst Screenplay, which was penned by Sandler and Steve Koren.

Dennis Dugan won the Worst Director title for "Jack and Jill," as well as for the Sandler-produced "Just Go with It."

The Worst Screen Couple trophy went to Sandler for his chemistry with himself, Pacino or Katie Holmes.
