A rich, spoiled socialite(Madonna) and a handsome Italian fisherman (Giannini) find themselves stranded on a deserted islandwhere matters of material wealth and class disparity are meaningless.

Alright, first thing I'm going to do is establish my credibility. Yes, I have been a Madonna fan since 1983 and NO I do not think everything she makes is fantastic which I find annoying and cultish (you know, that glazed eyed look of her fanatic fans.) In fact, she's put out some real doozies (ahem... "Next Best Thing" anyone? What garbage!) Plus, I hated her album "Music" so this is to let you know I'm trying to be a fair viewer.
Okay, the movie. Well, I watched it out of morbid curiosity. I had heard so much bad stuff about this movie I just really wanted to see why it was so horrible. You know what? It wasn't that bad.
The storyline was somewhat interesting... fascinating really... take two opposite persons with different morals and values that defy the other and put each one in a place of power over the other and watch what happens. It is somewhat masochistic in a sense. In other words, it really is a clashing of personal values and defying them until the other gets fed up. The lower class Italian worker simply rebels more and more when he is being dominated by Amber... interestingly enough, Amber, the rich nasty woman, submits completely when she is in the passive position. She really doesn't even fight. Why? Because her place of power really is an illusion whereas his isn't.
Regardless, all philosophical musings aside, you probably want the dirt on the flick. Alright, it's totally Guy all the way when it comes to filming and directing. You get his humor and camera angles from "Lock, Stock..." So if you liked that movie, you might get a kick out of this one.
How was Madonna? Not bad. She was actually interesting in her character. She's starting to really loosen as an actress and beginning to forget the camera. Remember, I said BEGINNING.
She's getting there.

Try as I might to like this movie, I could not. I remember at the premiere in London, how Guy Ritchie commented that it was an awful movie. Well, I'm sorry to say I must agree. I like Madonna and her co star is a beautiful man. But the performances here lacked spark, truth, passion, everything.

Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, Madonna surpasses herself in this boringly pretentious 2002 remake of Lina Wertmüller's "Swept Away" — directed in glum fashion by her then-husband Guy Ritchie. A beached whale of a movie, with no camp pleasures. Ritchie and Madonna fared better in a hilarious seven-minute short for BMW titled "Star" (2001) — one of the few bright spots in the Material Girl's filmography.

Why is this movie so bad? "Swept Away" starts out boring and just gets worse and worse. I am not trying to trash Madonna's acting because heaven knows she's been called every name in the book already, but if this movie is any representation of her acting skills she should quit while she's ahead and go back to singing and dancing. Included on the DVD is the MTV special that Madonna did with her husband which is in all actuality better than the movie itself because Madonna seems more human and relaxed. I suppose all of the blame isn't Madonna's fault, but she's Madonna and she and her husband did produce it. I still love Madonna, just not this movie.

This was a pretty good comedy, if that what is suppose to be, well, as Madonna plays a high class woman, pretty snotty, as she winds up, going swimming, and sudden, she is thrust ed on an island, where her, and the bell boy is stranded, until the bell boy wants Madonna to call him master, then she must do what he says, it is a pretty good movie, Madonna did a pretty good job.

While this movie pretends to be just another communism vs capitalism debate showing stock characters portraying each side (the spoiled self-centered but really "unhappy" capitalist vs the down to earth kind "happy" communist) it really turns the argument (maybe not intentionally) on its ear when the communist becomes in charge and what he does when he gets a lot of money. I don't know if this was just a pretense for the movie--this modern American (was this an American movie?) argument argued by spoiled young Americans. Anyway, it was really just about love . . . another love story. I mean it took a lot of time making propagandistic points about capitalism (unfairly of course . . . ) and communism (again not genuine), but turned out to be a love story. And over all it was a visually pleasing movie . . . pretty scenery, pretty people (Madonna looked like a rich person--her character--instead of her typically usual trashy appearance). Madonna was pretty good (yes I think her acting has been so suspect that we all have to comment on it whenever she is in a movie), even funny in the beginning, I thought. I just wish directors would help her focus and not lapse into her childish, immature behavior.Whenever she does that her acting goes bad. When she gets into the character it seems like she can act and is believable. But just like in Shanghai Surprise, Dick Tracy, Who's that Girl?, etc she gets whiny and silly . . . which I think is part of who she really is as I have seen from her interviews. Anyway, the ending was very very sad. It is a tear-jerker kinda movie. It is a movie best seen on a warm summer day alone when you are not afraid of being sad.
