Neither Jennifer Lopez nor Ben Affleck will ever live down Gigli.
When the romantic comedy was released 12 years ago, critic Richard Roeper said Gigli was "a disaster" and "one of the worst movies I've ever seen." Entertainment Weekly's Owen Gleiberman gave the film a C+ rating, deeming it "a watchable bad movie"—and those were some of the kinder reviews. Gigli won six Razzies in 2003—Worst Picture, Worst Actor, Worst Actress, Worst Director, Worst Screenplay and Worst Screen Couple—and in 2004, it won a seventh Razzie for "Worst Comedy of Our First 25 Years."
Lopez, however, doesn't think Gigli was that bad.
The 45-year-old actress appeared on NBC's Late Night Wednesday to promote The Boy Next Door, and while there, she defended the film that also starred her former fiancé. "I'm at the point in my career where I don't have to do a movie all the time, which is kind of great, because they're hard," Lopez said.
Host Seth Meyers took his guest on a trip down memory lane, asking, "When you look back on your career, do you have favorites? Do you have ones that you look back on and say, 'Oh, why did I do that?'"
