Gigli

Gigli 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 for better or worse. Larry Gigli (pronounced like “really") is a small time hit man working on an assignment for an East Coast mob boss (Al Pacino) to kidnap Brian (Justin Bartha), the Tourette's Syndrome suffering brother of a federal prosecutor. Gigli gets seriously distracted when his boss sends in Ricki (Jennifer Lopez) to make sure Larry (Affleck) doesn’t screw up the assignment. Ricki’s feigned lesbianism merely stokes the fires of Larry’s dim-witted heart, and the rest is all about what makes Larry a “bull” and Ricki a “cow.”
Rated R. 121 mins. (C-) (Two Stars)
