Trivia

At a showing of the film in Los Angeles, Madonna's former best friend Sandra Bernhard was reprimanded for talking too loudly while the movie was playing. One source said that Bernhard reacted to being shushed by proclaiming to all within earshot, "This is not a serious film." The source added that Bernhard did not bother to wait until the movie was over before walking out. See more »

Goofs

When Frank handcuffs Rebecca, in the wide shots the sleeves of Rebecca's robe cover her forearms almost to her wrists, but in the close ups of Rebecca's hands, the sleeves barely reach her elbows. See more »

Waste of Life
12 June 2004 | by (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

First thought that popped into my mind when 'Body of Evidence' began was that this had the potential to be a bad episode of 'Law & Order.' Who knew that it would be much worse? The script and direction is absolutely horrible, hands down. We all know what we came to see and an interesting movie is not it here.

Can you fornicate someone to death? Strangely enough, Madonna is on trial for committing such a terrible act!

I cannot completely hate the movie for some nice scenes between Dafoe and the 'Material Girl.' But if you can think of any other reason to watch this tripe, be it for pitying Julianne Moore as one of her earlier works or for just plain abusing your life, please do tell! 'Body of Evidence' should simply have been called 'Madonna's Sex Movie.' Could have done better with it.
