Plot Summary

Sex bomb Rebecca Carlson played by Madonna, parades around naked in front of the open windows of her houseboat at all hours, even while the lobstermen catch crabs. When Rebecca's latest conquest, a multi-millionaire, dies of a heart attack while making love to her she becomes a suspect. With eight million dollars bequeathed to Rebecca in her lover’s will, District Attorney Robert Garrett (Joe Mantegna) can’t shake the idea that she killed her rich lover with wild sex knowing that he had a weak heart, just so that she could get her mitts on the money. However, Frank Dulaney (Willem Dafoe), Rebecca's lawyer, thinks differently, suspecting instead the millionaire's private secretary Joanne Braslow (Anne Archer), who was dumped by the millionaire for Rebecca. Besides which, Frank, attracted to Rebecca himself, starts a sadomasochistic affair with her and throws legal ethics out the window.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A sluggish courtroom melodrama relieved only by unintenional laughter. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jul 20, 2009

Rotten: A courtroom drama built around the charge that Madonna's body is a deadly weapon with which she 'fornicated' a man to death, this showcase for the singer-thesp as femme fatale is more silly than erotic. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: A bland, utterly silly, curiously provincial courtroom drama. – Rita Kempley, Washington Post, Jul 20, 2009

Rotten: What do you say about this kind of movie? – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Jul 20, 2009

Keeps You Guessing Until The End!

Keeps you guessing until the very end?Aren't they the best movies?

Yes I am a Madonna fan but I never knew she was in movies. And this was my first to see her in.

Was not disappointed. If you like Madonna you will like this movie. And even if you're not you'll like this movie.

Price of passion

Great acting lends palpable suspense and tension to this erotic thriller. Madonna is beautiful and in control while William Dafoe as her smarmy attorney cannot help but fall under her spell. The plot has the requisite twists and turns but be ready for the explicit passion and desire.

Mysterious and Sexy

I don't understand why Madonna gets such a bad acting reputation. She is fantastic in this movie as well as all her others. This is a pretty good movie, but be advised it is very erotic at times. I enjoyed it very much and I recommend at least renting it. Definitely worth watching!
