Critic Reviews for Who's That Girl?
The storyline is simply bizarre, but somehow all the crazy elements fall together in one appealing madcap frolic in this 1987 Madonna vehicle that ends up being more than the sum of its parts.
This patently painful flick marks the first and last time that director James Foley would tackle comedy. And the reasons why are right up there on the screen.
There is nothing wrong with Who's That Girl that a different script, a different director, and a different star wouldn't have fixed.
At least Shanghai Surprise was nice to look at and had some George Harrison songs.
One of Madonna's shining moments in films
Audience Reviews for Who's That Girl?
OK as a daytime family friendly movie. Nothing extraordinary about it. Madonna did a okay job. The story is about what you could expect out of it.More
This movie is fun but much too silly at times too. Madonna is okay, but an actress could have done a better job with this movie, I think. Anyway, this movie is a joy for any fan of hers. If you're not a big fan, it's just okay.More
Madonna is naughty and fun as Nikki Finn. She's loveable, but a homewrecker as well. Often, her squealy voice will annoy. She's good to have around if thugs are pointing their guns at you. Great late-80's Madonna film. I loved the opening cartoon music video and wedding disaster at the end.More
"Is it possible for you to be any dumber?
- I don't see how."
Wow. I just finished this movie for a couple of minutes ago and all I can say is wow. I remember this movie from way back and there was some things that I remembered well. A cougar and... Well, that's about it.
Madonna's star was on the rise in the beginning of the 80's. She had made some successful albums and it was obvious that she would also try to conquer the big screens. I remember that I had the "Like a Virgin" album, don't understand why but that's not the point here. Madonna had to be everywhere. 'Desperately Seeking Susan', 'Shanghai Surprise' and this one came fast to the cinemas for our pleasure or misfortune...
Before I started to watch this, I was kinda eager about it. I had no negative thoughts, just prepared myself for a light comedy from the 80's. Now after the painful 90 minutes all I can say is what the fuck! The opening credits were pretty nice, with a Betty Boop type of animation that gave some background to the story. But 5 minutes in to the movie I was bewildered. How is this all possible? Unbeliavable and unfunny storytelling, irritating acting...
Was this intended to be a screwball comedy or a light romcom? I don't know but my dog seemed to like it. I sometimes wonder what makes a dog focus on something that's on the TV. It has to be some kind of stimulus. Was it the cougar roar or the annoying voice of Madonna?
'Who's That Girl?' is a movie that can be enjoyed by; a) fans of Madonna and b) those who don't take films seriously. I think that this was an insult to filmmaking. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy good comedy just as much as the next guy but this was just so stupid and annoying. I'd give it half a star but my dog insist that I have to give it a better rating...
