Madonna and Adriano Giannini star in director/screenwriter Guy Ritchie's contemporary adaptation of Lina Wertmuller's 1974 romantic comedy, "Swept Away," a story of love, sex and too much money - all set against the backdrop of a spectacular Mediterranean island paradise. A rich, spoiled socialite (Madonna) and a handsome Italian fisherman (Giannini) find themselves stranded on a deserted island where matters of material wealth and class disparity are meaningless. And in their struggle to survive and coexist in their paradise found, they soon discover that their dramatic differences are suddenly the source of a fierce, passionate and sometimes hilarious animal attraction.

Critics Consensus: Muddled and lacking the political context of the original, Swept Away offers further proof that Madonna can't act.
What a waste of potential.
