J.Lo's New Flick: "Gigli 2"?

7/11/2007 2:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

El CantanteA movie in which Jennifer Lopez co-stars with her man of the moment -- sound familiar? With her latest foray into acting set to bow next month, TMZ spies tell us the movie is looking more like a "Gigli" than an "Out of Sight."

Insiders at the Director's Guild screening of "El Cantante" Monday night tell us that while Marc Anthony was good, the movie is more of a show piece for Lopez. The only problem, we hear, is that she and Marc have no chemistry. Ay caramba!

The movie stars Anthony as the famous salsa singer Hector Lavoe and Lopez as Puchi, the love of his life.

Puchi, Gigli -- coincidence?

I recently saw El Cantante .... And it was a very well made movie. Hector was a legend and Leon did him justice. People please stop hating on Jennifer Lopez and give her props when it's due. Yes, Gigli was a waste of film and time. But even the best actors and actress have bombed a one point in time.
Jennifer's performance of Puchi should give her some recognition and the chemistry was there. Look I'm as cynical as the next person. But when something is good it's good. Migente ... Stop looking at it as Jennifer and Marc ... but as Hector and Puchi ... in a awesome movie! Stop the Hating!

By the way .... to all the TMZ haters .... 1) Yes she has a fat ass ... one ya man would want 2) Jen Garner .. Prettier than Jen ... lol ...PLeassse 3) Yes, selena was her break ... and so what! . You freakin Losers .. like you know this chick ... If we really look at her life she hasn't anything in comparison tos half these white actresses but yet she gets the worst of it . How many people has Julia Roberts dated? wasn't her man married? How about Angelina? Please she did twice to Jennifer Aniston and Laura Dern. As far as reckless , the only trash is those druggie shank - whores ...Lindsay, Paris, Nicole and Kim ... who a need dose of reality ... Bitches Please dont get me started ...

J-LO and MARC are good people!!!!!!! People who who don't like them have no good reasons why they don't. They are way more talented and richer than anyone posting hate comments

Jennifer Lopez wears fur.. with no apologies. She shows up tot he red carpet wearing 200 dead chinchillas on her back. This woman is like Cruella Deville! We can find better Latina stars to represent. This chica is just down right nasty.

Just saw the movie and I loved it. Believe me its no Gigli! If you love salsa music this is a must see. Obviously not only I loved the movie but the whole audience did because it received a standing ovation once it was over. Forget the negative comments from people who obviously haven't seen it and go check it out for yourself!

#59 I totally agree with you. Jlodown.com does show what she's made of. She is the puerto rican Cruella Deville. I would never spend a red cent on that skank so that she can put it into that torture crap fur line of hers. I have no respect for her and her movie tanked at the box office. She has some fans but most people see her for what she really is, a superficial celf centered no talent ho!

As a proud Puerto Rican woman, it shames me to see these two sell outs make such a schlocky film about one of the greatest talents to have ever come out of our community!

J-Lo is a hypocritical, homewrecking fake ass Nuyorican that can't even speak the language of the people she claims to represent!

Well guess what, Chica?

I'm the real deal, and was actually born on the island in the city of Rio Pierdas. And you certainly are not a role model of the ideal Puerto Rican woman.

And as for "Skeletor", somebody please give this man a good heaping plate of arroz con gandules before he completely wastes away!

And it doesn't surprise me one bit that even the great Willie Colon, one of Hector Lavoe's collaborators, spoke out against this so-called bio-pic. He pointed out that both the real life Puchi, before her death, and now J-Lo were both greedy bitchy women that pushed their way into the lives of their men to gain the spot light for themselves.

You may also want to know that although "El Cantante" portrays Puchi as the long suffering, supportive wife of Lavoe, in real life she also partook of the drugs with her husband. And you want to know the best part? When his was in the final stages of AIDS, she left him high and dry to die alone. What a saint!

So I urge all of my fellow Hispanics to unite and boycott this train wreck of a film!

They've got it all packed down Marc & Jen. The are both professional and talented "Nuyoricans" (hello). My husband and I finally and anxiously saw the movie on August 3rd, and thouroughly enjoyed every moment of the film, of course I refer to back in those days when we lived in N.Y., going to all the best Salsa clubs and waiting for Hector to give his best performance, and he always did. My congratulations to Marc & Jen for the preparation in this film, and also doing it to a "T". Thanks for the memories. A proud "Nuyorican". Those who do not agree, obviously you were not from that era. Marc & Jen, keep your heads up high. Muchos "Boricuas" que envidian. Que pena. Oh well, the show must go on.

YOU ALL WHO HAVE THESE NEGATIVE COMMENTS NEED TO REALIZE THAT THESE TWO JENN AND MARC SHOULD BE AN INSPIRATION FOR ALL PUERTO RICANS COMING FROM THE HOOD. THE MOVIE WAS FANTASTIC, THIS IS COMING FROM SOMEONE WHO WAS AT MOST OF HECTOR LAVOE'S CONCERTS AND APPEARANCES AND WATIED HOURS TO HEAR THIS INCREDIBLE MAN SING AND AT TIMES HE WAS A NO SHOW!
IT WAS ALWAYS WORTH THE WAIT AND ALTHOUGH THERE IS ALOT OF DRUG USE IT WAS WHAT WAS HAPPENING IN THOSE DAYS! PLEASE SUPPORT AND STOP BEING SO DAM IGNORANT. YOU ARE THE REASON WE CAN NOT UNITE AS A CULTURE! THE ASIANS WOULD ALWAYS SUPPORT THIER OWN! SO SHOULD WE! GET IT TOGETHER.

WHAT KIND OF A PR QUEEN ARE YOU!? MORE LIKE PR FAKENESS....
THE FILM DID TOUCH ON PUCHI DESERTING HIM IN HIS FINAL DAYS! SHE DID DRUGS BUT NOT THE HARD STUFF! SHE STOOD BY HIM AND SHE DEFINITELY PORTRAYS HERSELF AS NOT PERFECT AND EVEN SAYS IN HER INTERVIEW THAT SHE WANTED TO REMEMBER HIM HEALTHY AND SO DID HE....WE ARE NOT PERFECT AND THE FILM WAS WONDERFUL. GET YOUR FACTS TOGETHER PEOPLE B4 YOU KNOCK THESE GUYS DOWN. THEY DID A GREAT JOB.

I grew up with his music...I saw the movie and they did a fantastic job. Marc was perfect as Hector Lavoe and Lopez was as well. If you don't know the history behind this guy you would never understand the movie or the way Marc & Lopez acted. Only true Puertorricans know the truth and this movie shows alot of it...

For all you haters out there...Hate makes us stronger and you weaker!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
