His volatile boss, Louis (Lenny Venito), hires Gigli to kidnap Brian (newcomer Justin Bartha), the mentally handicapped younger brother of a federal prosecutor who's about to bring Louis' boss to trial in New York. Gigli gets the kid home without a hitch. Then a beautiful woman (Jennifer Lopez) shows up at his door. She says her name is Ricki, and Gigli soon learns that the nervous Louis has hired her to keep an eye on him. "In every relationship," Gigli soon finds himself expounding to his unwanted partner, "there's a bull and a cow." His efforts to maintain control of the situation are further hampered by the brief appearance of the insane Detective Stanley Jacobellis (Christopher Walken) and a forced visit to his overbearing mother's (Lainie Kazan) house. To make matters worse, when Gigli expresses his attraction to Ricki, he learns that she's a lesbian. She, meanwhile, proves herself considerably more capable than the lunkheaded Gigli, winning their war of words and even scaring off a rowdy group of high school kids. As Gigli and Ricki continue to look after the young, innocent Brian, they find themselves increasingly attracted to one another. But their potential budding romance is put on hold when Starkman (Al Pacino) arrives from New York, angry about how his affairs are being handled. Director Martin Brest, in his first film since 1998's Meet Joe Black, returns to the crime comedy genre that made his reputation. Brest also wrote the script for Gigli, his first since 1979's Going in Style. Stars Affleck and Lopez began a well-publicized romantic relationship on the set of the film. Josh Ralske, RoviRead Less

Movie synopsis Real-life couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez star in this quirky romantic comedy with a twist. Small-time gangster Larry Gigli (Affleck) is assigned to kidnap Brian (Justin Bartha), the mentally handicapped younger brother of a federal prosecutor, as a favor to his mob boss Louis (Lenny Venito). Soon after Gigli kidnaps the boy and takes him home to his Los Angeles bachelor pad, he has an unexpected visitor, Ricki (Jennifer Lopez), a sexy street-wise mob enforcer who also happens to be a lesbian. Unbeknownst to Gigli, Ricki has been assigned to guard the boy. With witty banter and jokes, Gigli attempts to seduce the uninterested Ricki--and in the process the two share an hysterical conversation in which they compare the merits of male and female sex organs. Despite their attraction, Ricki remains true to her gay sexual identity, even after an experimental romp with Gigli. The three unlikely roommates soon become like an unconventional family, and Ricki and Gigli are forced to decide what to do with their innocent victim, and whether to continue their lives of crime. Sparks fly between the Hollywood couple in this action-packed romantic comedy. Additionally, Al Pacino and Christopher Walken appear in entertaining cameos.
