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 Film buffs should have this in their collection July 3 2014
Format:DVD
If you call yourself a film geek, then you NEED to buy this movie. It tops every "worst films ever" list, and is universally acknowledged to be a shit stain on Ben Affleck's career. But at the same time, it's a piece of film history and every movie buff should see it. Its basically a how-to guide on how not to write a script BUT its also the documentation of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s incredibly awkward relationship. My girlfriend and I watched it and we had a good laugh over it. Everyone loves a train wreck, and this definitely doesn’t disappoint, but I think the reason this movie is so famous is because it occupies this space in our cultural identity as a movie that represents all that we hate about celebrities that try too hard. Which is why I wouldn’t even be surprised if its taught in film classes. Idk I think there are definitely interesting things to say about Gigli and I think it’s worth it to have in a collection just because of that. I've heard that the dvd is getting harder to come by these days so it’s cool that amazon still carries it.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Calm Down People April 5 2004
By Blair
Format:DVD
I thought Gigli was incredibly charming and except for a few lulls in the plot that most every other movie has, I loved it. The reviews that came out around the time of its theatrical release stated this was one of the worst disasters ever in cinematic history. That is complete crap. But what's worse, is that the average bone headed American let the critics tell them what to think and never gave the film a chance. It's so typical really. Everyone wants to agree with (...), god forbid we disagree on something. This is a good film, with good lessons, and the idea that this is somehow one of the worst films ever is so shocking to me I can't even comprehend it.

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.
