Four years unjustly jailed haven't dampened the spirits or determination of Nikki Finn (Madonna). The spunky parolee sets out to clear her name, and sets the Big Apple spinning in deliriously funny ways.
Initially, Madonna wanted to ask Sean Penn to play Detective Bellson. Penn was serving a sixty-day jail term for violating the probation he received in 1986, after assaulting a friend of Madonna and attacking an extra on the set of At Close Range (1986). See more »

[Loudon and Nikki are in a taxi cab tailing a UPS truck to a large house]
[to the driver]
That's the truck. Pull over here.
Hey, this is where Wendy Worthington lives.
Yeah, that's right. How do you know Wendy Worthington lives here?
I had her in my cab once.
[Loudon pays the cabbie and exits the taxi, once again looking mortified]

An animated Nikki Finn opens up the Warner Bros logo and steps out. She then sets off a musical number ("Causing a Commotion") that covers the opening credits and recaps the events that put Nikki in prison. See more »
The BBFC in 1987 cut the film both for cinema release and domestic video, with cuts totaling 1 min 43 secs, to the scene where Madonna is shopping with Griffin Dunne in the record store and can be seen putting cassettes into her own pockets and into a shoplifter's pocket to frame him, cuts were waived on the 07/03/2006 with a PG cert, although the Uncut version played on television channels in the early 90's See more »
...but I am sorry. I dig this movie. I cannot help it. I admire Madonna greatly for her staying power; by some people's standards, Madonna has been around forever, and EVERYONE knows who she is. My take is this: kooky Nikki Finn dragging pathetically straightlaced Louden Trott all around the city on her own agenda, right after she's gotten out of the joint, is FUNNY. Is this movie immature? Yeah, sometimes. Is it predictable? Yeah, sometimes. Is it a fluffy little film that's regarded by some as a cheesy classic of the eighties? Yep. As Madonna said later, "Why don't you just deal with it?" :)
