It's like the first draft of a one-set play that Neil Simon wisely abandoned, and which was then handed to Quentin Tarantino to spice up.

Gigli won't be the worst movie to come out of Hollywood all year, but it's sure to be one of the most forgettable.

It's every bit as atrocious as you may have heard. Nay, worse.

To qualify as a historic failure, a film needs a measure of pretension and all Gigli ever wanted to be was a romantic comedy. What it is is a dreadful romantic comedy.

Mere words fail to express the awfulness of Martin Brest's Gigli.

Now we can see why the Jennifer Lopez-Ben Affleck marriage was called off. It was on grounds of unreasonable cruelty to audiences.

Overlong, plodding, tone-deaf, unfunny and preposterous.

The two stars may be in love in real life, but they've managed to keep that chemistry well-hidden on screen.

It comes to something when a movie is only worth watching to validate just how dreadful it is.

This misguided romantic comedy goes wrong so often and in such profoundly lunkheaded ways that to say it stinks would be bordering on polite understatement.

After the schadenfreudian thrill of watching beautiful people humiliate themselves wears off, it has the same annihilating effect on your will to live.

Nothing in Gigli is sustained, from pace to plot points to character functions. It appears to have been chopped up and put back together again more than once.

Here is a film that exists on another plane. It is so insane, so misguided, so Dadaesque, so Kafkaesque, you'll think I'm exaggerating. I'm not.

[A] hopelessly scatterbrained romantic comedy.

Total Film
June 5, 2013
Not only is it a total botch, it's also an unrelentingly boring botch, meaning it doesn't even fit into the "so bad it's hilarious" category alongside Showgirls and Battlefield Earth.

More stupefying follies may come, but it's impossible to imagine how they'll beat this one for staggering idiocy, fatuousness or pretension.

Every bit as unwatchable as the deafening negative chatter would suggest.

It's hard to tell who this movie was intended for: those who think that a mentally challenged boy singing dirty rap lyrics is cute and funny? Those who find Ben Affleck's brow to be ineffably mysterious? Students of Stoic philosophy looking for a test?

Excruciating.

Misbegotten mess of a not family-friendly movie.
