Gigli was a 2003 mobster comedy starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, collectively known as “Bennifer.” The duo dominated tabloid headlines and entertainment gossip shows, so putting them in a movie was a no-brainer.
Unfortunately, every critic on earth hated the movie, and people refused to see it. It earned $4 million in its opening weekend, then experienced a second-weekend drop of over 80%. Gigli was withdrawn from theaters after only three weeks, one of the shortest theatrical runs on record for a major Hollywood movie.
