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.
A Tina Turner "Break Every Rule" poster can be seen in the Sam Goody store as Nikki and Loudon shop/shoplift. See more »
When Loudon arrives in Harlem after the hospital, he puts on his pants backwards; the button and zipper are visible when he's lying on the hood talking on the phone; in the next scene his pants are on the right way and zippered. See more »
C'mon, Loudon, haven't you ever done anything you were proud of?
Well, I used to be really good at fencing.
See? There you go. I knew ya had it in ya.
Yeah, but of course my father would never come watch me.
Why would your father wanna watch you turn over stolen goods? You're twisted!

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 »
This movie is one of my favs...It is a screwball comedy, and for those not familiar with the formula will probably not get this movie, definitely in the same vein as "Bringing Up Baby" or "What's Up Doc" (coincidentally, BUB was also a flop in its original release, but was rediscovered as a classic confection of the screwball comedy). In other words, this movie is a check your brain at the door movie, and just have some fun, no redeeming quality, other than to take you on a great trip...I recommend this movie to any fan of wild comedy (and it is easy to forget your watching Madonna, she is really good in this movie)...
