I don't know; despite the reviews, I have a hunch that I'd probably like Gigli more than, say, Seabiscuit, which is enormously enjoyable but a bit too beautiful and polished for my taste, which tends to run toward the messy and ill-conceived. I do have to agree with Roger Ebert's comment, though: "Affleck plays Larry Gigli, rhymes with 'Geely,' and one wonders, learning that they rejected several earlier titles for the movie, which ones could have been worse than this."

In any case, I have a hunch that Haiwen and I will end up watching American Wedding this weekend instead, if only because it has a character named Bear who may, in fact, be the first real Bear ever featured in a mainstream Hollywood movie. Besides Baloo, of course.
