Many critics called Gigli one of the worst movies ever made, but their condemnation isn't entirely justified. The movie's got plenty of problems, such as inconsistent tone, gag-inducing dialogue, and a meandering plot that fails to generate momentum over 124 minutes. And yet, this character-based vehicle for Hollywood sweethearts Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez is not without its charms: To begin with, there's J-Lo, whose beauty and presence flourish despite her ill-conceived role as a lesbian contract killer. Critics were also wrong in saying Lopez lacks on-screen chemistry with her off-screen beau; there are moments when they click, but director Martin Brest's screenplay maintains sexual confusion right up to an ending that's a total cop-out. Affleck (who did the lesbian-love thing in Chasing Amy) plays another good-natured killer, and their joint kidnapping job (involving the mentally disabled brother of a federal prosecutor) is destined to fail for all the right reasons, even as this anti-romantic comedy (featuring scenery-chewing cameos by Christopher Walken and Al Pacino) fails for all the wrong ones. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars The Critics Are Clueless! Excellent Movie! April 6 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I am not kidding. 'Gigli' is a very good, entertaining movie, with great acting and great cameos by the likes of Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, and Laini Kazan. All three of them shine in this film. Martin Brest's cinematography and style draws you into the acting, and the chemistry between Ben and J Lo's characters is believable to the core. Bennifer is actually very good in this flick. Sure, the plot line may not be as intense and fast paced as a Harrison Ford drama, BUT the film is certainly NOT as bad as some of the reviewers or critics claim it to be! In addition, Justin Bartha's character acting where he depicts an autistic young man is absolutely first rate and just about approaches OSCAR material. He is amazing! It reminds me of Dustin Hoffman's depiction of Raymond in the film 'Rain Man'. It is just as good, and actually quite moving during some very touching, and even sweet moments where he interacts with others. All in all, I give this a 4 star rating because the movie DOES work, with a decent plot line, and some good acting. See it for yourself, and then judge.

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
So, the news out of Hollywood is that Ben Afflect does not want to do any more action movies in general and a sequel to his 2003 hit "Daredevil" in particular. After the failure of "Paycheck" he is ready to give up on the genre and has declared that his next film, "Surviving Christmas," represents "me trying my hand at comedy." Having read that, I know understand more than ever why the biggest thing wrong with "Gigli" is Ben Afflect. He did not know it was a comedy.
Affleck's performance stands out like a sore thumb in this 2003 film. He hosted "Saturday Night Live" last week and he appears only slightly more comfortable in this film than he did in some of the lame skits he was put into on live television. Affleck plays the title character in "Gigli" (apparently there are pronunciation issues with the name), and he is supposedly the muscle for Louis (Lenny Venito), a foul-mouthed L.A. mobster. However, that would be "muscle" in the tradition of Rocky Balboa in the first "Rocky," except with less muscle and maybe less brains. He talks tough (he's apparently the "Sultan of Slick"); so tough that it is clear he is way over his head in this business and that is before Louis comes up with the stupid idea of kidnapping the mentally retarded brother of a federal prosecutor to help out a New York City mob boss.
So, Gigli abducts young Brian (Justin Bartha) from his care facility and takes him home, where he is joined by Ricki (Jennifer Lopez). She is everything that he is not, by which I mean she has serious presence as a mob enforcer, is a woman, and a lesbian.

Okay, lets be real about something: Gigli isn't that bad of a movie.
Compared to The Wedding Planner, Maid in Manhattan, and a whole bunch of other J-Lo flicks, Gigli ain't that bad. It has an "indie" film feel to it, maybe due to so few characters (4 main, 2 surprise), and the film is a "talkie" (not much action, just a lot of conversations).
What bought down this average movie was JLo and Ben Affleck; they never should have pimped their "love" so much that a Beniffer backlash occured to coincide with the movie's openning.
Bless JLo, but even on her best days, her transparent orchestrations to grab fame and fortune are a turn off. And then she lost points for dragging "Good Ben Hunting" into her morass, thus turning him into a publicity hungry vamp.
There was so much press around them, of course the movie had to fail. But it ain't a bad movie. Not great, of course, but plenty of laughs, sexual tension (JLo makes Ben her mental bottom), and a few tears. Also, just to give a bit of clarification, JLo's character is bi-sexual, not just a lesbian, as is revealed in the conversation with Ben's mother. This is important because if she had been a lesbian, their romance would have been inconceivable.
Yes, the script could have been clearer and a little more intelligent, but we're talking Beniffer here, not Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson (Howards End/Remains of the Day)!
Rent the movie. Don't follow the herd because Beniffer is an easy target.Its funnier than folks remember to mention. You won't feel stupid for renting it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Gigli- Whoa! (Not in a Good Way) Dec 29 2003
Format:DVD
Gigli, the highly unsuccessful film of 2003 has been called so many horrible things, there is no need for me to list them. I honestly had some hope for this film when I saw trailers for it, because I never pictured it to be this bad. Also the film had a fine director, Martin Brest who made such critically acclaimed films as Scent of a Woman and Midnight Run along with Beverly Hills Cop. Ben Affleck amazingly gave a watchable performance as Larry Gigli, a mobster. Jennifer Lopez plays Ricki, Larry's love interest who turns out to be a lesbian. The plot of this film could actually be called original but it just isn't a bit appealling. It was also very boring and not at all entertaining.
Gigli rated R for Pervasive Language, Sexual Content and Brief Strong Violence. The film contains non-stop profanity, infact according to People magazine, the f-word is used 75 times. The sexuality is reasonable, mainly one semi-explict sexual situation and sexual innuendo but no nudity. The violence includes a point-blank shooting and a cut off thumb.
Not at all worth seeing, I sadly saw it in theatres in addition to 3 other people. I wonder what will become of Martin Brest's reputation as a film director, it looks like he should make a movie based on a bestseller instead of writing something from the top of his head or maybe he should've casted other actors besides Ben & Jen. In a way I feel bad for him but I feel more disappointed in myself having lost a precious 2 hours of my life. Definetly winner of worst film of 2003 or at least a solid nominee. Funny this is there were other films in 2003 which did worst then Gigli and no one even noticied them. These films include, Marci X, which only made $900,000. Grind which made $2.6 million.
