The most enjoyably awful of Madonna's awful movies.

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.

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.

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

Empire Magazine
July 20, 2009
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
| Original Score: 1/5

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.
| Original Score: 1/5

[There's] no tension.

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
