Down the line, this movie may become a camp classic. At the moment, it's a stitch.

After a ghastly start, it becomes a curiously affecting document of a director trying to show the world why he loves his wife -- not the changeling pop star, but the actress.

Sound the trumpets: For the first time since Desperately Seeking Susan, Madonna doesn't suck as an actress.

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.

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.
