Consensus: Bizarre and clumsily plotted, Gigli is a mess. As for its stars, Affleck and Lopez lack chemistry.

After the schadenfreudian thrill of watching beautiful people humiliate themselves wears off, it has the same annihilating effect on your will to live.

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?

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.

More stupefying follies may come, but it's impossible to imagine how they'll beat this one for staggering idiocy, fatuousness or pretension.

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.

Every bit as unwatchable as the deafening negative chatter would suggest.

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.

It's every bit as atrocious as you may have heard. Nay, worse.

This is a bad movie. It is NOT, however, a horrible movie. I have seen far worse films than this. The storyline is ridiculous and the film tries to be too funny… More
