El Cantante

Every bit the camp classic that Gigli was supposed to be. El Cantante is nothing if not a generously budgeted, extended music video.

Jennifer Lopez: Brave

Throw some danceable beats together, pay for a couple of recognizable samples maybe add a guest rapper or two, and voila! You have an instant J. Lo album!

El Cantante

Jennifer Lopez is the new Barbra Streisand. No, old Butta Babs can still act and sing rings around this entertainment wannabe. No, where J-Lo matches the Oscar winning diva is in the oversized ego department.

El Cantante

The biopic formula overtakes historical details and even director Leon Ichaso's signature impressionism, with an awkward and unsurprising result.

Monkey Business (Part 4: August)

In past years, Hollywood purposely counter programmed these renowned Cineplex dog days, trying to offset the perception that cinematic scraps were all the studios had to offer. From the look of this lame list, it's apparently back to the filmic fridge for some patently warmed over offerings.

Gigli (2003)

It's tempting to imagine what extras might have been like for a Gigli DVD, given that the film received what had to be the most vehement critical drubbing of any released this past year.

Gigli (2003)

His hair slicked back, his face set in an expression resembling impassivity, Larry Gigli (Ben Affleck) tends to philosophize with his marks.
