Perhaps it’s when he says, in an attempt to seduce her, “I’m the bull, you’re the cow.” Or when she beckons him into foreplay by lying back in bed and purring, “Gobble, gobble” – which could forever change the way you view your Thanksgiving turkey. But as pop star vehicles go, “Gigli” isn’t as insufferable as, say, last year’s Madonna-Guy Ritchie debacle, “Swept Away.” It’s more on par with Mariah Carey’s “Glitter” and Britney Spears’ “Crossroads.” If this were a movie starring two B-list actors, or two complete unknowns, it probably would have gone straight to video. After curious masochists and J.Lo fans check it out the first weekend, “Gigli” probably will have a drop-off in audience that rivals “The Hulk” – 70 percent – then go to video. And with the release next spring of Kevin Smith’s “Jersey Girl,” in which they also co-star, we can have this little conversation all over again.

Weekend Box Office Results

Tuesday, August 5th, 2003

This weekend showed a bad opening for Gigli, which brought in a mere $3.8 million. The movie’s R rating did not help it any either, since that limits the audience who may watch it – especially teenagers. The top ten list is as follows, with Gigli tying for #7:

1. “American Wedding,” $34.3 million
2. “Spy Kids 3D: Game Over,” $20.1 million
3. ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,’ $19.1 million
4. ‘Seabiscuit’ $17.5 million
5. “Bad Boys II,” $12.7 million
6. ‘Lara Croft Tomb Raider,’ $11.3 million
7. (tie) ‘Finding Nemo,’ $3.8 million
7. (tie) ‘Gigli,’ $3.8 million
9. ‘The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen,’ $3.2 million
10. ‘Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines,’ $2.9 million

The second sequel to “American Pie” was #1 this weekend, bringing in $34.3 million.
