She's amazing in this!!

Madonnna is such a baffling case.How can someone with so much charisma and star power be so unpredictable, quality wise, in their performances?

I mean, she's terrific in Desperately Seeking Susan, Dick Tracy, and Evita, but flat-out terrible in Body of Evidence, Shanghai Surprise, and The Next Best Thing.

I prefer her when she's terrible,it's a treat to watch her try.

I have a theory that every actress has their "one movie" where she looks absolutely fantastic the whole time and throughout the rest of her career, will look back on that film and realize she never looked better.

This is that film for Madonna.There isn't a close second.

Other examples include:
Helen Hunt, What Women Want
Rene Russo, The Thomas Crown Affair
Geena Davis, Thelma and Louise

If so, I think that's true for every male actor as well.LikeStaying Alive, Swing Shift, Taxi Driver, Far and Away, Troy, Out of Sightetc.
