JLo and Ben are finally getting some privacy as their new flick plays to
empty theaters.

These two "stars" thought they could do anything -- no matter how
awful -- and still be great. Miramax has already pushed back the release
of _Jersey Girl_ to next year, so that, hopefully, the stench of _Gigli_
won't further contaminate it. If the character names in _Jersey Girl_
are any indication (Ben Affleck as Ollie Trinke and Jennifer Lopez as
Gertrude Steiney), this flick may also have some serious problems.

I'm still fascinated by Lee's Movie Info site. Here is a comparison of
the hit movie _Seabiscuit_ with the turd, _Gigli_. Even though _Gigli_
was playing at 228 more theaters than _Seabiscuit_, its opening weekend
take was $17 Million less. _Seabiscuit_ took in 5 1/2 times more money
than _Gigli_.

Anyone who wants to see _Gigli_ before it comes out on DVD had better
hurry, because in a couple of weeks, this piece of **** will be pulled
from theatrical release.
