    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    The only people likely to get a kick out of Gigli -- the first screen teaming of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez -- are Madonna and her director hubby Guy Ritchie. Finally there's a movie as jaw-droppingly awful as their "Swept Away." show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    The most thoroughly joyless and inept film of the year, and one of the worst of the decade. We're talking about a disaster, and not of the fun "Showgirls" variety, either. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    An embarrassing debacle...the rare movie that never seems to take off, but also never seems to end. It tries hard to titillate, but ends up making audiences want to avert their eyes. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The worst movie -- all right, the worst allegedly major movie -- of our admittedly young century. More stupefying follies may come, but it's impossible to imagine how they'll beat this one for staggering idiocy, fatuousness or pretension. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Affleck, for his part, behaves as if a Zero from "Pearl Harbor" dropped one too close to his noggin. He looks permanently shell-shocked. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    The film lacks a controlling point of view to guide an audience through so improbable a tale. Nothing in the movie is funny -- aside from giggles provoked by misfired jokes -- or romantic or dramatic. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Lopez and Affleck are sweet and appealing in their performances; the buzz said they didn't have chemistry, but the buzz was wrong. What they don't have is conviction. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Some of the dialogue is astonishingly awful. Sex and relationships are constantly likened to animal interaction. show more

    Lawrence Toppman Charlotte Observer

    After five minutes, Christopher Walken vanishes. We wait vainly for the next 90 minutes for someone, anyone to bring that kind of danger, unpredictability and vitality to a story as drab as army fatigues. show more

    Didn't see it. Didn't want to. But all the hype about their "supposed" real life romance was just for the movie.

    Wel even though the movie seemed to not go over to well. I think the sexy eroctic seen of LJO explaining the womans body as Ben watched from the fire place was HOT as Hell an very well put together do not think another woman could have pulled it off as she did
