    Ben and J-Lo were at Fenway Saturday for the BoSox - Yanks brawl game, the camera zoomed on them and we see the TV they have in front of them (front-row seats[​IMG]), tuned on the game broadcast. Comments by the Fox's announcers: "Hey at least they not watching Gigli" [​IMG] [​IMG]
    This movie is becoming legendary !

    I just knew there was no way they could summon enough fake enthusiasm to spice up this press release. "Gigli's coming out on video. Over and out" [​IMG]

    I think this press release has some subliminal commentary:

    So, am I to believe that you guys are among the 3 people that saw this movie, or do you just automatically hate whatever critics tell you to?
