Storyline

In this made for Showtime television spoof of Madonna's Madonna: Truth or Dare (1991) documentary, comedienne Julie Brown portrays Medusa, an egocentric, hyper-sexual (and not particularly talented) pop star on an international five-day world tour, "The Blonde Leading the Blonde" show. Brown painstakingly duplicates costumes, sets and hairstyles while spoofing Madonna's seeming self-obsession. Madonna visits the cemetery where her mother is buried; Medusa visits the pet cemetery where her dog Buster is laid to rest. (Or is it "Boomer"?). Madonna performs fellatio on a bottle, at the dare of a friend; Medusa does it on a watermelon. And so on... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

There are three moments in the film that Madonna ended up doing for real later in her career. In the "Like a Video" Medusa kisses and writhes around in front of a television - Madonna did this in her "Take a Bow" video. At one point Medusa says: "Call me Mrs Birdseye. The show is frozen." Madonna recorded "Frozen" for her Ray of Light album. In the "Like a Prayer" parody sequence, the dancers have crucifixes on their backs. In Madonna's Confessions Tour, she is on stage on a crucifix.

Quotes

Medusa: There's the phone booth where I lost my virginity! "Memories/of the phone booths on my block." Hah-hah! There's the doughnut shop where I used to work. The owner always used to put one on his finger and wiggles his eyebrows at me. He was so twisted. Too many cruellers!

Hysterical!
14 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Julie Brown hilariously demolishes Madonna's attempt at a rockumentary with gut ripping humor and truly original and catchy songs that rival Madonna's own. Cinematography and sets are top notch.

Kathy Griffin and Chris Elliott offer their own injections of comedy that enhances and compliments this film. Appearances by Bobcat Goldthwait and Wink Martindale, as themselves, is an added bonus.

It's hard to tell if Brown's performance is meant to insult or playfully tease Madonna, though I hardly think the Material Girl would find humor in it.

My Favorite line: "Why don't you come here (to the Phillipines); all they eat is dog and I'm a vegetarian."
