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.

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.
