Goofs

When Guiseppe and Amber are back from the Island and the guy with the suitcase comes to offer reward money to Guiseppe, he's wearing a blue suit. Guiseppe angrily says he doesn't want his bribe. When the man comes back into the bar with the suitcase ONE MINUTE later at the most - he's wearing entirely different clothes. He has a green suit on. Pretty fast change. See more »

Ignore the reviews from Plants
14 October 2002 | by KelticKarmaSee all my reviews

I had the (mis)fortune to see this film at a showing in the US. Having reluctantly sat through the entire abysmal thing, I am shocked to have seen so many good reviews here on IMDB.

The original film was a turkey, but an interesting one. It fitted into that early seventies, post 1969 revolution thing; this film just stinks of....... , well, nothing really. It's that bad.

Imagine a badly done perfume commercial - see what I mean ?

Madonna never could act, and has been an embarrassment on the big screen for years. She looks worse and worse with every one of those years, increasingly coming to resemble a skinned meerkat.

Guy Ritchie, who has built his "reputation" on Lock Stock, could never direct either - his movies are shallow, badly cut, fashion shows. He doesn't disappoint here either; he wisely cast his wife as the star of this debacle.

Please people, take little heed of the good reviews this movie has received from other posters below. They are quite obviously business plants.

Don't encourage Ritchie to humiliate himself further by giving him money.
