The Official The Next Best Thing 15th Anniversary Thread!!!! :D


Recommended Posts

Out of all of Madonna's movies, I hate this one the most...I can watch Swept Away before I can watch this drivel. The worst thing she has done in my eyes. It's not even so bad it's good...it's just awful.

I saw this movie before becoming a big M fan and knowing how dreadful her acting is but I enjoyed it (maybe because it was with French dubbing). Except for Abbie and Robert growing into enemies so quickly.

You prefer "Hey You as a movie", a.k.a. Swept Away?

Real fans support her movie career as well, and FYI, this movie made a lot more money than BoE

It reached #2 at the Box Office, but then bad reviews came along and... well, it ended up being a box office flop because flop fans didn't support her movies. I was only 7 when this was released but if this was going to be released tomorrow, I would pay a ticket for it

her fans were her harshest critics on this one.

ive found many non-fans loved this movie. my friend called me and said it was on tv and i was like. "oh it sucks, its the worst movie of her career!"

he was like, "i thought she was great and it was good"

when i hung up, i thought, "why did i just destroy his experience with it?"

I was very harsh on this film. I didn't like it. Rupert played a totally unbelievable character. Screen Writing 101: write characters you like. Put them into a sympathetic scenario. In the beginning of the film, Madonna's character was there. But then they fucked it up by turning her into a manipulative liar, without giving her just cause. Where this script went, I don't know. They lost the plot in the middle of writing it. Schlesinger was better than this. But I guess he was getting 'out there' as he got older. The same thing happened to Kubrick when he made that piece of shit 'Eyes Wide Shut'.

Yeah I just don't like this at ALL. Its a hot mess with so many things wrong. It ALL truly lies in The script like allready pointed out. It just didnt nake any since. It should have been an goofy comedy or a sad drama. Not a failed mix of both... And well yeah The acting is just bad. And The weird light/shadow :D It so ridicilous! Funny that NPH also mentioned this recently in Wendy show. Nice soundtrack but other than that, rest in peace.

Thanks Vande. I love Kubrick. He's my favorite film maker. I just didn't like Eyes Wide Shut. He should have just gone all out and made an awesome porn film, and left out all the Tom and Nicole 'family mid-life crisis' bullshit. The worst thing about that film is that Tom didn't invite his wife to the sex party. They could have had a swell old time.

We should start a Kubrick thread in the Cinema section.

I cant believe she read the script and decided to join this mess after EVITA

The whole synopse sounds like a razzie winner

She must have done it to promote the then up and coming trend of unconventional parenting, or as Roger Ebert put it a "garage sale of gay issues." and as an infomercial for same sex couples it isn't all bad. From the perspective of craft or art it is obviously a tone deaf disaster.

I saw this movie and there's nothing wrong about her performance, like why she won a razzie again? maybe John Wilson (or whatever his irrelevant name is) has an infatuation with her lol

yes, I actually did. You guys need to think for yourselves and stop paying attention to the critics and the razzies

LOL I think we don't even bother with reviews ( let alone The Razzies ) when it comes to Madonna's movies .I thought it was shit . Both the movie and her acting . I have nothing against you liking it whatsoever .

It still should have been considered for an Oscar for best cinematography and best supporting male in a drama / comedy for Benjamin.

Cinematography?!?? For real? And Bratt was as stiff as Madonna. The only great thing in that mess is the soundtrack.

The worst Madonna movie! There was no excuse for the movie to be as bad as it is by 2000. Madonna had plenty of chances to get acting right and never did. Most of the material was shit, but her acting is worse. The next best thing was the worst acting of hers out of any movie she ever did makes Swept Away look like a masterpiece.The lighting, the shadows on her forehead as well as around her mouth to highlight her eyes is the same lighting used in Body Of Evidence. looks like shit and stupid

oh c'mon! this is the main reason why she never could succeed in films, her fans never supported her

Even Britney fans went to see that crappy movie CROSSROADS and they enjoyed it! Even Christina fans loved Burlesque and made it a decent hit at the box office. Hell! Freacking Jlo, whose movies aren't better than Madonna's STILL has box office power

Madonna's fanbase is bigger than theirs. But her fans always complain about her movies.
