Jersey Girl Review


OK
Kevin Smith grows up. The writer/director from Red Bank, N.J., temporarily retires his trademark Silent Bob shtick for Jersey Girl, which sticks to a cute but overused plotline, occasionally branching out to include a few (but not enough) sarcastic observations addressing parenthood.

Though it wasn't pre-planned, Smith's film also puts the final nail in the "Bennifer" coffin then begins the resurrection process on Ben Affleck's floundering, Gigli-ravaged career. For the first time in a long while Affleck carries a decent picture, making a stronger connection to Smith's casual dialogue than he does with any of his co-stars.

Jersey Girl Review


Terrible

Drowning in every workaholic- single- father- gets- his- priorities- straight cliché you could possibly imagine (and then some), "Jersey Girl" is so insultingly trite and treacly it actually features self-centered, single-dad widower Ben Affleck not only realizing (at the last moment) that his daughter's school talent show is more important than a job interview, but actually dashing back to the 'burbs from Manhattan to join her on stage for a song.

Granted, the duet -- which manages to be insipidly saccharine and hokey despite being a murderous number from "Sweeney Todd" -- is the performance that father and daughter had planned all along before his ego got in the way. But the very fact that it never even crosses Affleck's mind to ask about rescheduling his interview lays bare how blindly enamored writer-director Kevin Smith was with the hackneyed notion of this false dilemma.

For all the post-"Gigli" murmur about this being the another possible bomb co-starring former fiancés Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, "Jersey Girl" is actually quite romantic, amusing and well-acted up to the point when Lopez, as Affleck's beloved wife, dies in childbirth, providing the timber-souled actor a brief moment in which to show unexpected depth as he collapses in a weeping heap in the hospital hallway.

Pregnant actress Liv Tyler was keen to wait a few years after marrying before having children - until she starred alongside child star Raquel Castro in Jersey Girl.

The Lord Of The Rings beauty tied the knot with long-term love, rocker ROYSTON LANGDON in March 2003, and admits she became broody earlier than she expected while filming the Kevin Smith movie.

Tyler says, "I think Raquel worked some magic on me there, no question. She is so cute.

Ben Affleck's Hot Kitchen Bother


Ben Affleck Jersey Girl Liv Tyler Jennifer Lopez Raquel Castro

Ben Affleck was left red all over while shooting Jersey Girl, when he burned his buttocks on an oven - prompting him to swear in front of his seven-year-old screen daughter.

The Hollywood heart-throb, who stars in the film alongside Liv Tyler and ex-fiancee Jennifer Lopez, had no idea the kitchen appliance sitting quietly behind him was switched on - but he soon found out.

Child co-star Raquel Castro recalls, "We were doing a cooking scene and he didn't really know the stove was actually on, so he leaned back and went, 'Ow! Ow! Cut! I'm burned my butt!'

Hollywood superstar Ben Affleck was nagged to quit smoking on the set of JERSEY GIRL - by his seven-year-old screen daughter Raquel Castro.

Affleck's nicotine habit greatly annoyed his diminutive co-star, and she had no problem with telling him just how she felt.

She says, "I said (to him) not to do that because in school I learned that you might get chemical dependency.

JERSEY GIRL star Raquel Castro has expressed her sadness at her screen parents Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's break-up - blaming the press for putting a strain on their romance.

J.LO and Affleck shot the movie just after it was officially announced that they were a couple, which sparked relentless press attention throughout the duration of the shoot - and beyond.

And seven-year-old Castro believes the couple, who parted ways in January (04), may have had a better shot at happiness if they were left alone.

Lopez Not Promoting Jersey Girl With Affleck

Jennifer Lopez has been spared the ordeal of promoting her upcoming movie Jersey Girl alongside former fiance Ben Affleck, because she dies just 12 minutes into the movie.

Director and longtime Affleck pal Kevin Smith insists J.LO was never expected to promote the movie in the first place.

He explains, "There weren't plans beforehand for (Lopez) to be there at the 5 March press junket in New York, so the break-up doesn't affect that. But I expect Ben to get hammered with questions."

Jersey Girl Kevin Smith Jennifer Lopez Gigli Miramax Raquel Castro

Jersey Girl director Kevin Smith has hit back at claims he has re-edited his upcoming movie to reduce Jennifer Lopez's time on-screen in the wake of flop flick Gigli.

Smith - who is a longtime pal of J.LO's fiance BEN AFFLECK - is furious after he agreed to do an interview with the NEW YORK POST and journalist LAURA HOLSEN ran a story claiming he was worried by the lack of sexual chemistry between the real-life lovers.

Smith fumes, "This is the part of the article with which I take issue the most (and why IÂ’ll never talk to another journalist who doesnÂ’t utilize some form of recording device other than a pen and paper again). I neverÂ… neverÂ… said, implied, or inferred anything regarding a lack of chemistry between Ben and Jen.
