Gigli (2003) (part 7 of 8)
Cut to Gigli and Ricki sitting in the car, and Gigli is checking his face in the rear view mirror. Luckily, Ben refrains from opening his mouth. He tells Ricki that he has a fantasy, to which she replies, “About making it with a guy?” Damn, is this movie trying to give me as many nightmares as possible?
Gigli explains further, his mouth resembling Jean Cretien‘s the whole time. The fantasy is actually about “going somewhere really, really clean. No scumbags telling me what to do, nobody yelling at you [sic] all the time, a place you can just… be. Be yourself. No bad stuff.” Well, there is a way to do that, and it’s called getting a real job instead of hiring yourself out to gangsters. If this monologue was supposed to make me finally sympathize with the guy, it crashed and burned, because he could easily leave this whole life behind and become a model or something.
Just as things threaten to get gross again, Louis pulls up with a pissy look on his face. Actually, come to think of it, that’s really the only face Lenny Venito has. Louis tells them, “We have a visitah from Noo Yawk!” and has them follow him.
