Movie Review by Zara
March 14th, 2007

And when they say she wasn't good...

I don't know why people always give Madonna such a hard time about her acting. It's not like you can expect her to do anything else but be Madonna. We as a public have turned her into an iconic figure and in turn have doomed her to a mold that we are not willing to let her out of.

I really liked Madonna as Breathless Mahoney in this movie. As a whole I enjoyed the movie as well. Based on an old comic book and cartoon, it is bright, shiny and looks like the panel from a comic. It is loyal to the characters that were created in the series (aside from taking out some of the more blatant stereotypes since it was released during the PC years) and has all the flash that the cartoon had.

This movie wasn't supposed to be anything more than a representation of the comic, something that I find interesting when people down Madonna for trying to go outside of herself. First people want a movie to take previously written material and make it bigger or they're not happy. Next they want to take an actress/singer that they've put into a mold and doom her by saying she'll never change.

Phooey on all of them.

And for the record, (Jeff, if you're listening) the soundtrack from this movie is probably in my top 20 favorite soundtracks.
