1.0 out of 5 stars The Lousiest Gong in Town July 14 2004
The ONLY reason this film is worth more than gum stuck to your shoe is because of the late George Harrison. Some great songs were written and used in this film...some bad ones too!
Where else can you find the one time Beatle crooning in 1937 China. Great songs like 'The Hottest Gong in Town' and 'Zig Zag' were unfortunately placed in this awful use of poor talent. Although he re-recorded it the next year, 'Someplace Else' is another gem done for the film. It's too bad musical talent was wasted on one song called 'Shanghi Surprise'.
A movie like this could kill your career. Sometimes I wish it had.

1.0 out of 5 stars Painfully bad July 13 2004
By A Customer
I am a huge Madonna fan. I love her music. I love her movies (not because I think she can act but because they're always so bad they're good). But this movie is an exception to all the others. It's just bad. Words can't describe. I think what made it so painful was the fact that it went on forever. Just when you think it's over something else happens. Once that's over with something ELSE happens. After that, something ELSE happens. And then something else. And then something else. And all that really happens is Madonna and Sean Penn run around like idiots. I'm sure this movie must be really embarassing for them. Madonna's performance is so wooden and if Sean weren't cute he wouldn't be any fun to watch either.
I wish I could give this movie 0 stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Crap Starts Here June 25 2004
My Oh My
To think that hero worship can be blinding is too much!!! This movie was horrible then as it is today as it will be FOREVER! The only enjoyable thing in this flop fest is George Harrison's music which could not save the film nor his burning desire to direct movies altogether. Not suprisingly he quit after making this monstrosity which is a real shame. Harrison died not long ago unfortunately but we still have Madonna to contend with! The world is indeed not fair. Her own burning desire to become a screen siren never happened. Here she is boring, flat and down right dreadful. This is a real horrible film with horrible stars. Madonna in any movie is horrible enough and UNFORTUNATELY she has kept making movies to this date? Why? Remember that she followed this one with 1987's Who's that Girl? and later that horrible Evita (a story about a Nazi loving fascist) and then Swept Away. Somebody should have stopped her when they had the chance. She is box office poison and yet her blind fans will actually try to convince us otherwise. Don't waste your money on this flop fest unless you feel like throwing your money away.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad... but perversely enjoyable March 17 2004
The story is rubbish, the acting is bad, however I did enjoy it in some perverse way! (One of those, its so bad its good films perhaps?)
Know-one comes out of this film unscathed. Penn's character is completely annoying; his histrionics really grated on my nerves and Madonna's acting has never been worse (the crying scene has got to be seen to be believed).
The scenery is beautiful though, and possibly the only other noteable thing this film has going for it, is that Madonna is absolutely stunning in it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint hearted Sept. 16 2003
By Nicky
Make no mistake this film is dreadful. But you can't blame it all on Madonna's acting. The script is appallingly bad and the film cannot decide whether to be a romantic comedy or an Indiana Jones style action adventure. In the end it's neither, the budget just doesn't stretch that far. The scenery is nice though and Madonna does look stunning, even though she looks like she is bored stiff and is reading her lines from an autocue. The only intersting bit and redeeming quality this film has is Sean Penn's acting. He carries the film and the look of fondness he has for Madonna in the one-on-one scenes with her is obvious. She also shows signs of animation when she is acting one-on-one with Sean. Ah, if only she had remained married to him she might have been an Oscar winning actress by now. Or perhaps not! This film deserves to be seen for Sean's acting alone. So if you've got nothing planned and you want to watch a DVD that doesn't tax your brain too much then this is ideal. The soundtrack is good too - shame they never released it commercially.
