Ben Affleck: A Movie-By-Movie Guide  | Gigli (2003)
Gigli (2003)

The height of the Bennifer phenomenon and a low-point in Affleck’s career, and possibly the entire history of cinema. Despite a pedigree director in Martin Brest, classy support from Christopher Walken and Al Pacino, and, you’d assume, plenty of real-life chemistry between Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, the result is a film so bad you’d throw it down the nearest mineshaft if you didn’t worry Chilean miners might be at the bottom. You’d have to have drunk a lot of Kool-Aid to think that the pair would make believable Mob enforcers. They realIy, really don’t. Credit to Affleck for keeping a straight face when Lopez delivers her “gobble, gobble” line, but that’s as far as it goes. Gigli ended up earning enough rotten tomatoes to make a serviceable pomodoro and won Affleck a well-deserved Razzie. If you ever happen to bump into him, probably best not to mention it.

Quality feature - well worth it just for the last page - I'd never seen either of those two clips. Handsome Men Club was funny, and it was interesting to see all the cameos. However, The "Ben Affleck" video had me in stitches - I don't know how long this has been kicking around the internet, but it's been long time since I've seen something that has had me laughing so much it hurt ! I had to watch it again just to try and spot all the cameos in it.   The fact that Affleck is willing to send himself up like this grants him a lot of respect from me (not that I imagine that matters sp; Top class!
