Even though this movie has a terrible reputation, since I always had a weak spot for Guy Ritchie’s work, I was still eager to check it out. What was he thinking though?!? 10 years after, we are still wondering... I mean, after directing 2 of the most acclaimed British features ever put on the silver screen, Guy Ritchie pretty much managed to sabotage his once so promising career. Some say he has... read more

"Swept Away" is clearly nothing more than a vanity project for Madonna in order to get her then-husband Guy Ritchie to direct her in a movie. While I haven't seen the 1974 original that it was based on, I can tell is a thousand times better than the film we got on the big screen. This feels muddled, the leads have zero chemistry together, and since it took in just under $600,000 (against its $10 m... read more

Description: Raffaela, a fiery and independent Italian factory owner, gets stranded on a deserted, edenic island with a virile yacht hand who has the uncanny knack of reducing women to sexual objects. She succumbs to his strong and forceful masculinity, and falls madly in love. Then comes the moment of their rescue and exile from paradise, when returning to society forces them to deal with harsh, cold reality. An Italian film which traces the relationship that develops between a rich, selfish woman and a slovenly sailor when they become shipwrecked. ... (more)

“Even though this movie has a terrible reputation, since I always had a weak spot for Guy Ritchie’s work, I was still eager to check it out.

I mean, after directing 2 of the most acclaimed British features ever put on the silver screen, Guy Ritchie pretty much managed to sabotage his once so promising career. Some say he has made a come-back with 'RocknRolla' but, personally, I still think he has lost his touch but who knows? He might make something amazing again in the future. To be honest, I do think that the hatred against this movie is actually a little bit exaggerated. I mean, of course, it is completely misguided, really weak, rather boring and pretty much uninteresting but I have seen way worse. From a technic” read more

This feels muddled, the leads have zero chemistry together, and since it took in just under $600,000 (against its $10 million budget), this pretty much tells that Madonna's movie career is basically over. Sure, she's had a bunch of bad movie projects before that ("Shanghai Surprise", "Who's That Girl", "Bloodhounds of Broadway", "Body of Evidence", "The Next Best Thing) but "Swept Away" clearly takes the cake for being Madonna's worst film ever, and it's no wonder why she stopped acting after this disaster to cont” read more

50 Most Hated Movies Ever Made (51 movies items)

"The Movie: Guy Ritchie's wedding present to new wife Madonna - ditch the gangsters, and remake an Italian romantic drama on a Pacific island. Why It Was Hated: Madonna's acting career has long inspired derision, so when she managed to bring down the reputation of Britain's hot talent, the knives were out even though the film never got a UK cinema release. Typical Online Review: "I'm still fuzzy on why the director of Snatch and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels took it upon himself to cast "
