Gigli Reviews

June 17, 2014
After the schadenfreudian thrill of watching beautiful people humiliate themselves wears off, it has the same annihilating effect on your will to live.
June 5, 2013
More stupefying follies may come, but it's impossible to imagine how they'll beat this one for staggering idiocy, fatuousness or pretension.
June 5, 2013
Every bit as unwatchable as the deafening negative chatter would suggest.
June 5, 2013
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?
March 6, 2007
Brief but flamboyant cameos by Christopher Walken and Al Pacino helped keep me distracted from the noble intentions and the silliness.
February 9, 2006
Mitigating factors: a carefully curated sampling of J-Lo butt cleavage, and an arrhythmic Christopher Walken cameo which momentarily diverts the doomed ship from collision with the iceberg.
August 19, 2003
The stars display zip chemistry, but seem to find themselves adorable. They're so taken with each other they don't need an audience.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
August 15, 2003
Shapeless and without a shred of originality, the movie mimics and copies pieces of a number of old movies, all superior in every way.
August 9, 2003
The movie is bafflingly boring and ridiculous.
August 6, 2003
Brest would have to go back to his outline to repair this lemon and give America something akin to what it's told it really wants -- a helping of Lopez-Affleck home movies.
August 4, 2003
[O]ne of the worst movies I've ever seen.
August 3, 2003
This isn't a good film, but, when set alongside the likes of Dumb and Dumberer and Legally Blonde 2, Jen & Ben offer less pain.

August 1, 2003
An enjoyably written and performed romantic comedy.
August 1, 2003
It is an exquisitely bad movie: One to be savoured, marvelled over, shared with friends and generally appreciated in a state of awestruck wonder. Gourmet fromage.

August 1, 2003
Falls somewhere between horrible and laughably awful.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4
August 1, 2003
The most thoroughly joyless and inept film of the year, and one of the worst of the decade.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4
August 1, 2003
It's a catastrophic miscalculation of tone, a comatose comedy about mental illness, contract killers and corpse desecration.

August 1, 2003
Such an utter wreck of a movie you expect to see it lying on its side somewhere in rural Pennsylvania, with a small gang of engineers circling and a wisp of smoke rising from the caboose.

August 1, 2003
An inept attempt to do Elmore Leonard by Martin Brest, a filmmaker whose coarse sensibility makes him catastrophically unqualified to the task.

August 1, 2003
Rarely has a movie that doesn't star Madonna achieved such a skin-crawling mixture of deluded preening and bungled humour.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
August 1, 2003
Its awkward Rain Man- meets-gangsters- in-love plot lurches forward with such clumsiness it's hard to believe writer/director Martin Brest avoided seeing this thing flushed direct-to-video.

August 1, 2003
An overlong, joyless, and inconsequential affair, full of dead air, and possessing only a few moments of jaw-dropping bad taste.

August 1, 2003
Gigli makes a bid for that rare honor: The movie so bad it's good. It falls short.

Ach. Oy. Woe and poo, bleccch and uck! ZZZZZ-zzz.
August 1, 2003
I wonder what would happen if you sweated 15 minutes out of this movie. Maybe it would work. The materials are there.

August 1, 2003
Guys, I'm telling you: Don't go to this movie! It's Chasing Amy with guns! You're walking into a trap!
July 31, 2003
The movie tries too hard to be edgy, to work as a sweet romance, yet lacks the courage to push as hard as it needs to.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
July 31, 2003
What emerges is desperate -- and occasionally offensive -- salaciousness merged with corny, predictable jokes.

July 31, 2003
Nothing in the movie is funny -- aside from giggles provoked by misfired jokes -- or romantic or dramatic.
July 31, 2003
[A] hopelessly misconceived exercise in celebrity self-worship.
July 31, 2003
There's virtually no story, no conflict, no tension and no suspense, just the endless droning of the worst dialogue written in recent memory.

July 31, 2003
Once you get past the staggering question of who gave this thing the green light, Gigli actually turns into a uniquely bad movie that yields real (albeit unintentional) laughter.
Full Review | Original Score: D
July 31, 2003
Nearly as unwatchable as it is unpronounceable.
July 31, 2003
Brest freights his actors with leaden pacing and a theatrical gangster-speak somewhere to the left of Damon Runyon and the right of Elmore Leonard.

A rigli, rigli bad movie.

A torpid dud starring the cuddly celebrity twosome of the moment.

July 31, 2003
It's the sort of bizarre, ill-conceived picture you can't believe exists, but are secretly glad it does.

July 31, 2003
A film that begins badly and gets worse and worse, like someone who has been knocked unconscious in an accident and then bleeds to death because he gets no attention.

July 31, 2003
There are so many bad moments in Gigli, it's a shame to single out only a few.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
July 31, 2003
A perfect storm of cinematic awfulness.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4
July 31, 2003
A huge waste of celluloid.
July 31, 2003
Put together enough pointless, random details, and you get Gigli, a movie that's less incompetent than bewildering.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
July 31, 2003
It's the stuff Mystery Science Theater 3000s are made of.

July 30, 2003
Formless windbag of a romantic comedy with bits of gangster flick stuck to the edges.
July 30, 2003
Neither a loud, bloody cameo from Al Pacino nor the obviously tacked-on ending come close to redeeming the tedium, and the unfulfilled promise of a second scene from Walken doesn't help.
July 30, 2003
A character-driven piece, pitched awkwardly between comedy and drama.
July 30, 2003
We could almost be watching staged rehearsals for an '80s cliché-fest.
