Gigli, standing as a strong contender for the title of one of the most ill-conceived films in cinematic history, has earned notoriety for a myriad of reasons, each contributing to its abysmal reputation.

This peculiar romantic comedy attempted to leverage the real-life relationship between Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, but its comedic endeavors consistently miss the mark. The romantic elements also flounder, particularly when Jennifer Lopez endeavors to entice Affleck to bed with the infamous and cringe-inducing phrase, “It’s turkey time, gobble gobble.”
The details of what culinary suggestion she was making are left to the audience’s imagination, but it’s universally acknowledged that this particular instance stands as a strong contender for the least successful attempt at intimate dialogue in the history of cinema.
