I'm ready to quit this dump, I really am. Ray won't let me wear my glasses on stage, then Ian gets pissed because I can't do any of the tricks, I mean I'm only legally blind. I could understand if I wanted to wear my glasses on my tits, but nobody in this dive is looking at my face anyway.

The song heard in the beginning of the movie is "The Shoop Shoop song" in the US version whereas it is "One fine day" in the European one, possibly for copyright reasons. See more »
Hard to say why this movie is rated so low on this site. In some ways I agree with the critics, but overall I found it to be entertaining, and even funny in parts. I certainly didn't see anything wrong with the performance of Madonna, or any of the others. Laurie Metcalf was great. Perhaps the amnesia plot device was a little lame for hanging the entire narrative on. The production had more of an air of a play for television than a full-scale feature film. Memorable title, but I admit to having forgotten the story by the time I gave it a second look. Remembered and appreciated the Jimmy Presley masonic dollar jacket, however.
