February 13, 2018
Body of Evidence won't be remembered for classic plotting or brilliant legal gambits. But give it its due: it holds one's attention.

The goal of this odd period in her career is achieved: you get ample opportunity to see what Madonna looks like having sex, or at least what she wants you to *think* she looks like in those private moments.
July 20, 2009
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.
July 20, 2009
An erotic thriller that's strangely unerotic and devoid of thrills, this is, however, mercifully short at 100 minutes.

July 20, 2009
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.
March 26, 2009
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
| Original Score: 1/5
July 24, 2008
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.

[There's] no tension.
May 1, 2006
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.
| Original Score: 2/5
May 20, 2003
A sluggish courtroom melodrama relieved only by unintenional laughter.

January 10, 2003
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.
| Original Score: 1/5
August 5, 2002
The biggest disappointment lies in Uli Edel.

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