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

Is it a comedy? A drama? A romance? A cartoon?

Two of the least likable characters I've seen in a romance in a long time.

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.

Ritchie and Giannini will survive this, no doubt. But here's to hoping Madonna will just simply stay on that island forever.

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

We hate [Madonna] within the film's first five minutes, and she lacks the skill or presence to regain any ground.

Glazed with a tawdry B-movie scum.
