Storyline
Amber is 40, beautiful, rich, spoiled, and arrogant beyond measure. Nothing makes this woman happy, including her wealthy but passive husband (Tony), a pharmaceutical kingpin.

User Review

Swept aside…

Rating:

It's another Madonna film: does anyone really need to know
more?

The only thing worse than Madonna trying to be funny is Madonna trying to be
serious.

The only thing worse than being trapped on a desert island with Madonna is
being trapped on a desert island with Madonna and a film
crew.

In 2002, the only thing worse than Madonna in SWEPT AWAY was Robin Williams
in DEATH TO SMOOCHY.

The only thing worse than watching Madonna in any movie is trying to come up
with new ways of saying she can't act.
