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. Gigli abducts the brother from his mental hospital and holds him hostage in his apartment. Ricki, a "lesbian assassin", is sent to oversee Gigli's job and make sure he doesn't screw it up. Comedic high jinks ensue as the two go on the lam and start to fall in love. Written by Ilya G.

Not stellar, but far better than most people would have you believe
31 August 2004 | by jsandysSee all my reviews

I don't comment on many films, but had to write a few words having finally seen this. How so many people manage to justify tearing it to shreds I have no idea. It's no masterpiece, and has some serious failings, but also dodges most obvious clichés and has some major high points.

The Affleck/Lopez pairing actually works quite well - I never really bought them as mob goons (him more than her), but as an on screen couple they work, and their characters as a whole come out as quite well rounded (just not their occupations).

It suffers from being too long, and the ending especially should have been a lot tighter, but that merely places it into the "average" bracket, not the "unimaginably awful" as some people would have you believe. If you want a truly abysmal film, watch Batman and Robin, or Robocop 3. For an entertaining 2 hours, with a couple of nicely surprising cameos and some great dialogue in parts, this really won't let you down.
