That fact that I had to rate this film with at least one star makes Gigli sound better than it is!
I admit my only reason for watching this film was to see what all the fuss was about, but I did so with an open, objective point-of-view. However, only 5 minutes into the film, it soon became quite clear why the film was pulled from cinemas after only 4 days;
Affleck and Lopez's characters are, at best, ambiguous - unbelievable nice and very difficult to imagine them even taking candy from a child. Neither pull off the bad guy image in the slightest (can't believe that guy in the restaurant fell for J-Lo's 'menacing' Samuel L Jackson-esque 'threat'.
As for the subject of a mentally-handicapped character, all I can say is, if that's how much being kidnapped and held to ransom improves someone's condition, maybe J-Lo and Affleck are in the wrong job! (answers on a postcard...)
All this is without mention of the pitiful acting 'chemistry', dismal script, single camera-angle, lighting(!).
What's worse is the appearances of Christopher Walken and Al Pacino - guys what were you thinking?! Even their attempts to rescue the acting fall, sadly, by the wayside.
All this said, I recomend this film to everyone as after this, you'll have a clear definition of a BAD film, a benchmark by which to judge everything else!
Oh and I'm not even going into the final scene with the kid dancing at the Beach party, oh dear...
