One of just two of Madonna's films worthy of any critical acclaim - the other being 'Desperately Seeking Susan' of course, and was long overdue when released on DVD.
It's hard to believe now that this movie was made twenty years ago! I challenge anyone to watch this, and not feel great afterwards! Absolutely hilarious, fast-paced and full of action! Like the great music Madonna was making at the time, she should have stuck to this genre in movie-making; it suited her talents far better than the turn to which her acting career later took. I suspect both this film and the aforementioned did not go down as well as her later work, due to the fact they were not full of sex and nudity.
Another great title for this movie could have been 'Operation Prisoner Shuttle' - an amusing phrase coined in the film; everything in this chaotic and wacky film could be summed up in those three little words!
Watch this great classic from the eighties - enjoy it and feel great! This movie would lift anyone out of deep depression, and should be supplied on prescription!
Five stars - and no doubt about it!!
