And I like it. I really do understand why people hate this film. It has an artificial feel, and casting for casting's sake. Throwing a batch of stars into the mix doesn't guarantee a great film (Ocean's Eleven?) but this one works for me. I like the period feel, the unusual camera angles, the costumes and the banter.It is a bit like Damon Runyon meets 'Cabaret'. It works for me at many levels. My only suggestion is buy it very cheap, and if you hate it, use it as a coaster. For the rest of us, more please!

This is Madonna's fourth major feature movie and is up there with her best one's "Desperately seeking Susan","Who's that girl",and "A league of their own".The story of this comedy that's set in Broadway,revolves around the event's of the showgirl/gambler/gangster character's on New Years Eve night 1928,whilst 2 bloodhound's are used to track down the culprit of a murder.Madonna sings a fantastic ballad duet called "I surrender dear" with Jennifer Grey which is unavailable elsewhere and similar to the fantastic "I'm Breathless"-"Dick Tracy" l.p she made 2 year's later.In the movie her character is a material showgirl that's pursued by luckless gambler Randy Quaid.The critic's, unusually for a Madonna movie,mostly gave this the great review's it truly deserves as it's very witty from start to end and is excellently acted by each and every member of the cast including Madonna who's on top form.Definately worth buying/renting if u're a fan of Madonna,or any of the cast.

A movie that features madonna that passed me by.
as a film its a fair watch, not the best movie ever but very reminiscent of madonnas im breathless era- due to the 20s setting
for madonna fans theres a nice duet with jennifer grey and at this price is great value for money

Madonna is my IDOL, Always has, always will be. She may not have a great track record for movies (Tho I LOVE Swept away) but Bloodhounds of Broadway is an absolute load of rubbish. It makes no sense what so ever, its dark, boring, and tho its full of stars, none of them shine in this film!!! sorry!!!

HASH(0x8e6df348) out of 5 stars Thank Goodness for Subtitles 7 Sept. 2009
By Curt Raven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This film is certainly entertaining, and is, as many professional reviewers have said, the best film adaptation of works by Damon Runyon. The only reason I would not give it five stars is that in many scenes, the dialog cannot be heard. I find myself pumping up the volume to "jet engine blast" levels while people are talking, only to have to grab the remote and quickly turn it down again when a sudden burst of music threatens to break the glass in the windows. The compromise has been to use the subtitles, which at least let me find out what is being talked about. You would think that the sound engineer, particularly in a film which relies heavily on slang terms and offhand remarks, would have been extremely careful about making sure the dialog was audible. But if you don't mind reading your way through the film, or you have the sensitive hearing of the average canine (and a strong familiarity with 1920's slang expressions) then you'll find the rest of the film top notch.

HASH(0x8e8fe468) out of 5 stars A wonderful introduction to a great writer 18 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I am a huge fan of Damon Runyon and this is so much in his style it's a delight to watch. The star studded cast play Runyons characters marvelously. If you like this move you will love Runyons books and vice versa.

HASH(0x8e71bce4) out of 5 stars classic sadly often forgotten still shines 11 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This 1989 film is a truly great movie starring everyone from Rutger Haur to Madonna, and everyone (everyone!) is amazing! This film is not to be missed, despite its low-key theme and less flashy style. Excellent!

HASH(0x8e758f0c) out of 5 stars A New Year's Eve Classic! 22 Jan. 2009
By Beulah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Okay, first a disclaimer - I happen to have met some of the actors in this work... the two bloodhounds. (Hey, the only other actor I've ever met was Jake Busey on the set of "Enemy of the State", but the bloodhounds were smarter, better looking, and far better actors!)

This movie, although it would probably bore kids, is like "A Christmas Story" for New Year's Eve.

One reviewer commented that it was filmed "like a tv movie". I believe that it was - in fact I recall that I first saw it as an American Playhouse piece (for PBS), and then Columbia later picked up the rights.

So it's a "small" movie, No car chases or seriously over-the-top sets, but the cast, which mixed many top "Hollywood" thespians with "Broadway" ones, is nothing less than amazing. You will see a great many familiar faces doing fine work.

The plot is tongue-in-cheek, and combines several Daymon Runyon tales into a fairly tight storyline. Even the lesser characters are well drawn, and some of the romantic couples, like Madonna & Randy Quaid, are unexpected. There is a LOT of chemistry and detail in this piece (yes, I've seen it many times, now, and almost always on NYE).

The performances are first rate (maybe Jennifer Grey could have worked on her singing a little more, but she was doing a duet with Madonna, who after all, can probably outsing most of Hollywood AND Broadway.) This is NOT a Madonna Movie, though. in fact no character could be said to dominate the screen for long.

Best seen with a sweetheart - and possibly a Bloodhound!

Oh yes, and if you might want to have a string on those little weinies on hand...

HASH(0x8e4be5a0) out of 5 stars strike a pose 5 Aug. 2008
By JGC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I was once a huge Madonna fan (still love her) and that's how I got turned on to this movie. Madonna's role in "Bloodhounds of Broadway" sorta reminds me of her Breathless Mahoney character in her next movie. The film includes an all-start cast (Randy Quaid, Matt Dillon and Rutger Hauer), as well as a duet with Madonna and Jennifer Grey. The movie first premiered to a limited engagement in 1989 and when Madonna didn't attend the premiere MTV reported that it was because she wanted to save herself the embarssment of yet another movie. Considering all of the other Thanksgiving turkeys she has made, this one is certainly not as bad as the rest. It's just very silly and somewhat over-the-top and funny in many parts. Overall it's a pretty good movie. No special features are included on the DVD.
