Trivia

Originally, Sean Penn was set to co-star with Madonna but after their movie Shanghai Surprise (1986) flopped, the producers opted to go with Griffin Dunne instead, fresh from his success with After Hours (1985). See more »

Goofs

In the first shot of Louden crashing through the gate and the limo dangling over the edge of the parking structure, you can clearly see that it is a stunt driver in a hat in the driver's seat when the car is shown from the side. When it cuts back to inside the car, Louden is in the driver's seat again. See more »

Not as bad as its reputation
10 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie the day it opened in NYC, at the Ziegfield. At the time Madonna was not quite the cultural icon she is now. She had a couple of hits, was very good in "Desparately Seeking Susan" and I had tickets to see her in concert at Giants Stadium.

"Who's That Girl?" gives Madonna an actual role to play, which is not just a variation of her own personality. She does the madcap/heroine routine better than you might think. Griffin Dunne is very well cast as the man around to witness all the shenanigans.

The story involves a huge cat named Murray, a bride-to-be who has slept with every cabbie in NYC, a mean father-in-law, and a key. There are a lot of car chases and cops trailing their path. All the elements of a screwball comedy intact.

Sir John Mills is seen briefly. He shares a glass of champagne with the leads and has the greatest apartment on the Upper West Side, complete with a rain forest and everything.

Compared to most Madonna movies (the ones I've been able to tolerate anyway), this is fantastic. On its own, its not that bad. 6/10.

PS The concert was lousy.
