* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: Interesting example. [[spoiler:Gertrude dying]] was supposed to be a major twist and JenniferLopez was meant to get a top billing. However after Film/{{Gigli}} flopped with critics and audiences [[PortmanteauCoupleName Bennifer]] started suffering from a major HypeBacklash. In attempt at damage control Lopez was DemotedToExtra and [[spoiler: her death]] became a major part of advertising campaign.

Added DiffLines:

* PlayingDoctor: Ollie walks in on Gertie lifting up her dress for a male friend. Amazingly, one of the few examples of this trope to actually ''show'' the game in question being played.

* UnderminedByReality: A bit of an unusual case. Originally the plan was to advertise the movie as being all about the relationship between Affleck and Lopez's characters, making Lopez's [[spoiler:death]] early on a huge shock. But by the time it was released ''Film/{{Gigli}}'' and the general public being utterly sick of them as a couple had killed this plan's viability, so the twist was put right in the trailers, leaving the film with little real identity of its own.

Creator/KevinSmithís first foray into more traditional Hollywood filmmaking, as well as his first film not to be set in the View Askewniverse.

Ollie (Creator/BenAffleck) is a workaholic music publicist living comfortably in [[BigApplesauce New York City]] whose wife Gertrude (JenniferLopez) [[spoiler: [[DeathByChildbirth tragically dies in childbirth]]]]. His responsibility for his newborn daughter eventually cost him his job, forcing him to move into his fatherís (Creator/GeorgeCarlin) house in New Jersey. From then on, itís the story of Ollieís shaky attempts to raise his daughter, whom he named after her deceased mother, as a single parent, all while deciding whether or not to return to the ritzy life in New York with her.

The film is very LoveItOrHateIt for all the of the reasons one might expect: its casting of Affleck and Lopez was horribly timed, as it came before the ďBenniferĒ crazy, which [[DeaderThanDisco died out]] with the abysmal failure of ''{{Gigli}}'' shortly before this film was released. It was also a huge overhaul of Kevin Smithís traditions (small budgets, quarter-life crisis stories, excessive swearing), which [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks alienated a lot of fans and had critics accusing him of selling out]].
