Storyline

Gigli, a lowly and inept hitman, is assigned a job by the mob to kidnap an intellectually disabled brother of a California district attorney.

Comedic high jinks ensue as the two go on the lam and start to fall in love. Written by Ilya G.

Trivia

Ben Affleck on director-writer Martin Brest in the film's production notes: "Working with Marty, we found ourselves on the same wavelength in terms of the things we think about, our senses of humor and the way we look at the world. He's someone whose passion and enthusiasm for making movies is tireless. He is an artist and a technician and a craftsman, and he is unflagging in his determination. He does many more takes than anybody I've ever worked with. It's a great luxury for an actor because it gives you room to experiment, to go anywhere you want to go. I think he truly loves actors. I know he loves movies." See more »

Goofs

After shooting Louis, Starkman sets the gun on the coffee table. It appears he never picks the gun up again, and as he goes behind the loveseat he doesn't have a gun in his hand, but as he walks behind Larry and Ricki he suddenly has the gun in his right hand. See more »

Those Five dollars could've got me some chicken McNuggets!!!!
6 August 2003 | by (J-LO Street) – See all my reviews

I could've went to McDonald's with my five buck and gotten something to eat but INSTEAD I went and saw the new J-lo/ Ben Affleck puke bonanza titled; Gigli. God, I'm an IDIOT!!! The first ten minutes weren't so bad but then I realized I was in "Finding Nemo". When I made my way to the right theater- I was horrifed!This was Gigli? A J-Lo movie ALL ABOUT J-LO- Well I never! Anywho- there's only too things worse then this movie: 1, Burning to death and 2, burning to death while watching "Gigli"

for A movie titled "Gigli" -- I never laughed once! Total rip off! Horrible! I give it 4 stars **** ...out of 240!
