I've seen comedies with fewer laughs than Body of Evidence, and this is a movie that isn't even trying to be funny.

This is the kind of poor effort that's difficult to forgive.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

A pale husk of a film.

The biggest disappointment lies in Uli Edel.

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

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

A bland, utterly silly, curiously provincial courtroom drama.
