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.
