Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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
"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
"Writer/director Martin Brest ("Scent of a Woman") combines romance, comedy, and crime in a movie that will forever be blamed for bringing together Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"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
"[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
"This is a derivative, cliché awful film..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"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 stars display zip chemistry, but seem to find themselves adorable. They're so taken with each other they don't need an audience."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"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
"No, it's not the worst film ever made, but it is a sickening exercise in smugness and self-love."
‑ Richard Luck, Film4
"I can't call Gigli a misunderstood masterwork, but I'm not ashamed to say I enjoyed it."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
