I've tried to watch this film several times, but I always abandon it about halfway through, from either boredom, or Madonna's irritating warbling. I finally decided to really try and get through the whole thing, and....I just can't. Madonna is probably a nice lady. She's made some very danceable songs. But, she cannot act, and, she does not have the vocal chops to pull off this role. She certainly should be credited for possessing an abundance of confidence, and she looks convincing as Eva Peron. But, it is obvious she was chosen for her popularity. This is one of those cases where they put together popular stars, big budget, and all the ingredients that should make a great film, and, they made a boring one. I really don't know who they should have chosen to play Evita, but, they needed an actress with skill, soul, and a great voice, and instead, they chose the Pop Tart Of The Century. Admit it, it may not be totally lousy, but, it should have been a whole lot better. The film that does the play justice has yet to be made.
