I can't call Gigli a misunderstood masterwork, but I'm not ashamed to say I enjoyed it.

Because of its humble proficiency, seriousness of intent and sexual adventurousness, it's become the unfortunate pariah of a film culture that expects Hollywood to turn out only gee-whiz showiness and superficial plays at emotion.

There were tons of worse movies this year. Maybe this is like comparing Saddam Hussein to Hitler, but Gigli isn't just the lesser of two evils, or three, or four.

Why Gigli is getting so widely lambasted from other critics, I do not know. [It] may not be a life-changing motion picture, but it is always likable. Most of all, and most importantly, it has a good heart.

...Gigli marks Affleck's most enjoyable performance outside of a Kevin Smith film...

All things considered, and in spite of nearly every potential cinematic pitfall you can think of, the film delivers a satisfying, endearing romance and is one of the better of La Lopez's oeuvre.

An enjoyably written and performed romantic comedy.

It's too long and far too contrived for such slight material, but it's far more entertaining than a long list of recent films.

A hoot. A fluffy hoot, but a hoot.

Kudos to Brest, and to Affleck and Lopez, who deliver -- although that delivery is exactly the opposite of what their fans, and their disbelievers, expect to receive.

I loved Gigli! Julia Roberts and Richard Gere probably WISH they had this type of chemistry.

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.
