Early weekend estimates show the Ben Affleck/[textileRef:1776539598580b2a4c3fcf9:linkStartMarker:“Jennifer Lopez”:/cr/jenniferlopez] film Gigli, savaged by the critics, bombed over the weekend.

The flick, which has been heavily publicized with Ben and J. Lo showing up everywhere, cost $54 million to make but only took in an estimated $3.8 million.

The opening total could be even lower later on Monday when the final figures are released.
