    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 shit will be pulled
    from theatrical release.
