Gigli | 2003 | R | - 7.6.10

Ben Affleck stars as Larry Gigli who does odd jobs for some less than savory individuals, like collecting money and acting as muscle. His latest assignment is to kidnap a mentally challenged young man in order to put pressure on his powerful brother. A woman (Jennifer Lopez) shows up at his door the next day saying that she's there to make sure he does his job right, but things get complicated when they are ordered to cut off the thumb of the young man and they find out that he is really the brother of a federal prosecutor. Also with Justin Bartha, Al Pacino and Christopher Walken. Directed by Martin Brest. [2:04]

SEX/NUDITY 7 - A man and a woman talk in detail about the differences between the male and female sex organs and debate which is the ultimate sex organ. A woman kisses a man, pinches his nipple, invites him to perform cunnilingus on her, they kiss, he lies on top of her, and then she rolls him over and climbs on top of him; she takes his shirt off, they kiss and she thrusts her hips rhythmically. A man and a woman kiss in a couple of other scenes. A man gets into bed with a woman and tries to entice her to have sex with him. Also a woman invites a man and another woman to have sex together. Two women look at each other admiringly. A woman showers and we see her bare back and part of her bare breast, and we see part of a woman's bare buttocks and a thong. A woman wrapped in a towel comes into a room. A man takes off his shirt and flexes in front of a mirror, and a man takes off his robe and stretches in front of a woman. A woman stretches her leg up over her head while making a phone call and a man admires her, and a woman does yoga poses while talking to a man about sex. A woman talks to a man about being a lesbian. Women wear outfits that reveal cleavage, bare abdomens to the hip, and bare legs. Men and women wear bikinis and swimsuits in a beach scene and they dance. We see a painting of a woman in a bathing suit (cleavage is evident).

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - A man is shot in the head: blood and organic matter spray into and on a fish tank where we see fish nibbling at the pieces as they sink into the water, and we also see blood dripping copiously from the man's head wound. A man cuts the thumb off a dead body with a plastic knife (we hear sawing, crunching and tearing and later see blood in a tissue). A woman takes a kitchen knife, slits her wrists and blood pours from the wounds. A woman describes (in detail) to a group of young men how to use the fingers to pull out an eye ball and leave the victim with no visual memories. We see a morgue with dead bodies in plastic bags. A man is gagged, shoved into a clothes dryer and threatened by another man. A man tells a man to cut a young man's thumb off. A man yells at a man and woman and waves a gun around. A man yells at a young man and shoves him against a wall, men yell at many people throughout the movie, two women yell at each other, and a woman and a man yell at each other. A man gives a woman an injection in the buttock. A man kidnaps a young man and they yell at each other in several scenes. A man threatens a man. A man breaks a laptop computer over his knee.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
