Body of Evidence Reviews

TV Guide's Movie Guide

There is little, if any, erotic chemistry between Dafoe and Madonna, and, as a result, their sex scenes look more like hard work than pleasure.

July 20, 2009

Another turkey from the queen of pop, and possibly the worst film on her CV of cinematic clunkers.

Empire Magazine

An erotic thriller that's strangely unerotic and devoid of thrills, this is, however, mercifully short at 100 minutes.

While he may be marginally better at directing kinky sex scenes than Instinct's Paul Verhoeven, [Edel is] stuck with a fairly ho-hum script by Brad Mirman.

A courtroom drama built around the charge that Madonna's body is a deadly weapon with which she 'fornicated' a man to death, this showcase for the singer-thesp as femme fatale is more silly than erotic.

I'd rather eat my own liver than sit through this again

The sour taste that Body left for [director] Edel is evident in his next, very different big screen feature: the children's fantasy The Little Vampire.

Yet another failed effort at making Madonna a legit actress, in a preposterous thriller could be labeled Basic Stink.

Tries hard to be hot and steamy but ends up being lifeless and laughable.

A pale husk of a film.

Mediocre erotic thriller trying to capture Basic Instinct success. Tries too hard, not really sexy, and certainly not mysterious.

Be thankful that its star, a singer, dancer, mother, and woman of the world, has plenty of day jobs to go back to.

Madonna provides the body. The script provides the evidence. Together they prove conclusively that bodies without stories make rotten movies.

| Original Score: 3/10

Madonna may have the body, but there's no evidence she can act with it.

One of the very worst Madonna efforts ... and there are so many to choose from!

Director Uli Edel concentrates on the sleaze when he should be helping Madonna act.
