Larry Gigli, a lowly hit man in Los Angeles, who is looking to finally score big, lands the perfect "job"--or so he thinks. He is assigned to kidnap Brian, the psychologically challenged younger brother of a powerful federal prosecutor, in order to save his mobster boss from incarceration. Holed-up in his one-bedroom apartment with his kidnap victim Brian, Gigli starts to realize that what he thought would be a routine assignment has become a daunting and unwieldy task. Ricki, a beautiful, independent-minded female gangster, is sent to assist Gigli with the kidnapping--as his boss… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"After the schadenfreudian thrill of watching beautiful people humiliate themselves wears off, it has the same annihilating effect on your will to live."
‑ Jeff Giles, Newsweek
"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?"
‑ Michael Agger, New Yorker
"The two stars may be in love in real life, but they've managed to keep that chemistry well-hidden on screen."
‑ Matt Soergel, Florida Times-Union
"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."
‑ Cynthia Fuchs, PopMatters
"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."
‑ , Total Film
"More stupefying follies may come, but it's impossible to imagine how they'll beat this one for staggering idiocy, fatuousness or pretension."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Brief but flamboyant cameos by Christopher Walken and Al Pacino helped keep me distracted from the noble intentions and the silliness."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"It comes to something when a movie is only worth watching to validate just how dreadful it is."
‑ Sloan Freer, Radio Times
"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."
‑ Christopher Borrelli, Toledo Blade
‑ Michael Sragow, Baltimore Sun
"Every bit as unwatchable as the deafening negative chatter would suggest."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"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."
‑ Jessica Winter, Time Out
"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."
‑ Leah Rozen, People Magazine
"[A] hopelessly scatterbrained romantic comedy."
‑ James Keith La Croix, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"Misbegotten mess of a not family-friendly movie."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
