WHAT DOES GIGLI MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Gigli

Gigli is a 2003 American romantic comedy film written and directed by Martin Brest and starring Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez, Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, and Lainie Kazan. After a protracted battle between studio and director, a radically revised version of the original film was released. There was significant media attention and popular interest prior to its release, primarily because Affleck and Lopez, the film's stars, were romantically involved at the time. Critical reception was extremely negative, and in the years since its release Gigli has frequently been cited as one of the worst films ever made. The film was also a financial crash, grossing back only $7.2 million against a $75.6 million budget.
