Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
This critically lambasted movie is not the unmitigated disaster you might have been led to believe; it's actually a creditable remake of the 1975 Lina Wertmuller film of the same title. This new version, directed by Guy Ritchie Snatch, follows the original rather closely. Madonna Ritchie's wife, in case you've been living in a cave stars as Amber Leighton, a spoiled socialite who accompanies her husband and two other couples on a private excursion from Greece to Italy. Cast adrift in a dinghy with Giuseppe Adriano Giannini, an unkempt and apparently dull-witted deckhand, Amber winds up on a deserted island and is forced to rely on the survival skills of the boorish sailor she loathes. There's nothing new about this plot; it was old hat even when the original Swept Away was filmed, and Wertmuller has rarely acknowledge her debt to James Barrie's similarly themed The Admirable Crichton, itself an oft-filmed fable. Ritchie's remake lacks the political edge and trenchant social commentary of the 1975 film, but it does offer a formidable screen presence in Madonna, whose performance is by no means the travesty it was made out to be by cynically vengeful critics. It's true that her assiduously cultivated image gets in the way, but it's also true that there's probably more of Amber in her than she would care to admit. Giannini, whose father essayed the role in the Wertmuller's original, manages to hold his own opposite Madonna, and the inevitable romantic clinches certainly produce plenty of sparks. If not quite a classic, Swept Away is definitely worth owning: Madonna still cuts an impressive figure onscreen, and this carefully produced remake provides her with ample opportunities to dazzle her audience.
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
Sound the trumpets: For the first time since Desperately Seeking Susan, Madonna doesn't suck as an actress.

    the real bad actor

    The reason I gave this film 3 stars has nothing to do with Madonna's acting or Ritchie's directorial style. In fact, I enjoyed Madonna in this role. I thought she played the part of spoiled rich wife to a tee. It was her co-star's acting, Adriano Giannini, that I couldn't stomach. His delivery of certain lines were so bizarre that I couldn't help but laugh, even when it wasn't supposed to be funny. I just couldn't take his character seriously, and therefore it brought down the movie. So to all those critics who insist on bashing Madonna's acting, you should actually watch the movie because she's the one who gave the best performance in this film.

    the fashion is the only next best thing

    Madonna can act in some movies: dick tracy, four rooms, desperately seeking susan. Her character in swept away requires the bad actress side of madonna, I just want to say that since I like her. The fashion in this movie is great. Even Guy Ritchie fans might not enjot this flick from him.

    Guy Ritchie is the man!!!

    This movie just goes to show that critics can't see past the end of their own nose. Guy Ritchie again makes a great movie and Madonna is great as the rude and snotty wife. One of the best scenes has to be where Madonna dances on the island with a full band. Brilliant color and cinematography!

    romantic comedy

    The reviews of the movie Swept Away were not the greatest, which proves once again that you cannot rely on the movie critics. The movie, in fact, was amazing, and Madonna played very well. One of the best romantic comedies in a long time!!! Very funny, and really brings out many deep feelings from the heart. It will stay in your mind for a long time after you watch it.
