Contributed by lopez_lover: Roger Ebert from Chicago Sun Times reviewed today the Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck starring movie ‘Gigli’, giving it 2 1/2 stars. He writes, “Lopez and Affleck are sweet and appealing in their performances; the buzz said they didn’t have chemistry, but the buzz was wrong… Affleck and Lopez create lovely characters, even if they’re not the ones they’re allegedly playing, and the supporting performances and a lot of the dialogue is wonderful. It’s just that there’s too much time between the good scenes.”
