Madonna has sold hundreds of millions of albums over the years, making her one of the most famous recording artists of the 80’s. Her acting career has been more of mixed bag to say the least. Here is a list of Madonna’s 5 worst films. I have taken into account only films in which she has a starring role (No cameo’s)
#5.Who’s That Girl, 1987:
Ended up being both a critical and commercial failure. That being said, the film has a cult following among die hard fans for being so bad, it’s good; It co-starred Griffin Dunne (Brother of slain Poltergeist actress Dominique Dunne) If you are a fan of Madonna you may actually enjoy this one.
#4. The Next Best Thing, 2000:
Madonna won a Razzie award, worst actress for this film. Co-staring Rupert Everett; Roger Ebert gave the film 1 star saying “a plot as exhausted as a junkman’s horse.”
#3. Shanghai Surprise, 1986:
Nominated for 5 Razzie awards; Madonna won for worst actress. Co-staring then husband Sean Penn, this one was a box office bomb and was universally Panned by critics, this film is widely considered to be one of the worst films of the 80’s
#2. Body of Evidence, 1992:
Six Razzie Nominations for this one including Worst Picture, Worst Actor (Willem Defoe), Worst Supporting Actress (Anne Archer), Worst Director and Worst Screenplay. Madonna won the Razzie for Worst Actress. In 2005 Roger Ebert put it on the list of his most hated movies.
#1. Swept Away, 2002:
Received 1 star across the board by critics. 10 million dollar production cost the film was pulled from theatres after only weeks and barely made half a million dollars in ticket sales. After seeing the film, actress Sophia Loren said, “That was the worst movie I have seen in my entire life.”
