The Vera Hruba Ralston of her time, Madonna has persisted in making movies despite all evidence that this is one medium in which no one wants to see or hear her.

Don't count on being swept away by this contrived, predictable shipwrecked romance.

[An] utter piece of flotsam.

Both husband and wife seem to be in way over their heads.

Every bit the cinematic shipwreck you'd imagine it to be.

More than annoyed, or angry, I just felt sad. Sad for what is quite possibly the premature death of a once-brilliant directorial career.

This waterlogged romantic comedy really does deserve to sink without trace.

Alas, the only surprise was in seeing how little a top-notch director can do with a woman who simply cannot act.

Apparently willing to scuttle his own career, Ritchie writes and directs a film in which he does everything possible to make his own wife look ugly, rotten and despicable.

Whenever you agree that there's more credibility in spotting a flying donkey with the hiccups rather than believing in an effective Madonna-hired acting coach, then you definitely earned the license to go with your first instinct.

Ritchie may not have a novel thought in his head, but he knows how to pose Madonna.

With her meager acting skills, overwrought mugging, shrill line delivery and quasi-Brit accent, Madonna makes Amber far more monstrous and comical than was obviously intended.

Deserving of its critical backlash and more.

Rather than explore the roots of misogyny, as did the original, the new version may just encourage it.

If there is one thing worse than a Guy Ritchie movie, it's a Guy Ritchie movie with Madonna in it.

The histrionic muse still eludes Madonna and, playing a charmless witch, she is merely a charmless witch.

Gone are Ritchie's style and wit. Gone is the mischievous sense of fun that pervaded his other films. Here instead are drudgery and inanity.

The only thing "swept away" is the one hour and thirty-three minutes spent watching this waste of time.
