Larry Gigli (Ben Affleck), a wannabe gangster with a good heart, has finally been given his first big break. He must kidnap Brian (Justin Bartha), the psychologically challenged younger brother of a powerful federal prosecutor to help save a mob boss from going to prison.
Hiding out in his one-bedroom apartment with Brian, Gigli is shocked when Ricki (Jennifer Lopez), a gorgeous, free-spirited female enforcer is sent to assist him because his boss thinks he's likely to screw up.
And from that moment on, Gigli's world is turned upside down.Gigli finds himself failing in love with the unavailable Ricki and goes to extreme lengths to win her affection. The more she resists, the stronger the attraction becomes.
By letting their feelings get in the way of business, Gigli and Ricki set in motion an unlikely chain of events that just could endanger their plans for a long-term relationship - and their lives.What the critics are saying:
"Ridiculous, obnoxious and astonishingly tedious, Gigli (pronounced Geelee as in really awful) is so unremittingly dreadful it sounds like fun. Until, that is, you actually spend 120 minutes in its presence..."- Jamie Russell, BBCi"Test audiences reportedly balked at the film's happy ending and wanted Gigli and Ricki to die bloody deaths. And they say critics are harsh."- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone"Imagine a movie made up entirely of Deleted Scenes...Not since Travolta and Tomlin in 1978's Moment By Moment has a love scene been this embarrassing or uncomfortable."- Collin Souter, Efilmcritic.com
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
