12. Jersey Girl (2004)
One knows what to expect from a Kevin Smith movie and this is movie is no different. It entertains, makes you laugh and cry and that’s all it intends to do. Ben Affleck stars in the lead role along with Liv Tyler and strangely enough this Jennifer Lopez movie doesn’t have much of her as her character dies right in the beginning of the film. The film follows Affleck’s character who is shouldered with the responsibility of being the sole parent of his precocious child and needs to take care of her. Smith has stated that a longer version of the film had much more interesting scenes, including more of Lopez but we badly miss her in the original cut.
