Gigli  AUG 10 2004  rating: 2.0 stars

Boy, does hype work both ways. Gigli wasn't nearly as bad as the critics said it was. Mostly it was just an overreaction: with all the Bennifer buzz, this should have been a better movie, it wasn't, and it got slammed accordingly. I mean, it wasn't great, but it also wasn't Ed (or pretty much any movie with a monkey playing the title character). As usual, Roger Ebert explains things pretty well.
