The one where Ben met Jen. The title is pronounced "Geely" and is the last name of smalltime mobster hitman Larry (Affleck). His latest job is to kidnap and babysit a prosecutor's mentally impaired brother (Bartha in his film debut) as leverage in mob boss Starkman's (an overacting Pacino) trial, but he begins to feel sorry for his hostage. So his worried boss Louis (Venito) decides to send Ricki (Lopez), another contract killer, to keep an eye on them. Oh, and Ricki's a lesbian, which doesn't preclude Larry hitting on her. Not quite as bad as most of Madonna's oeuvre but the film's vulgar come-on of "gobble, gobble" succintly describes the movie--it's a turkey.
