If you know what to look for, you can find almost anything in the personal ads...including the loveof your life! Rosanna Arquette (Pulp Fiction) is "irresistible" (Newsweek) and, in her first starring role, pop star Madonna (Evita) gives a "marvelously comic" (Time) performance in this "delightful madcap comedy" (US) about mistaken identity. Bored New Jersey housewife Roberta (Arquette) fills her days by reading the personal ads and following an ongoing romance between "Jim" (Robert Joy) and "Susan" (Madonna), a mysterious drifter who leads the kind of free-spirited life about which Roberta can only dream. And dream she does, until the day she actually shows up at the couple's prearranged rendezvous in New York City...and after a bump on the head, a bout of amnesia turns Roberta into Susan and opens the door to intrigue, laughter and love!

Out of sheer boredom , in a marriage going nowhere, Rosanna gets fixated on a mysterious character, that shows up in classifieds where her band member boyfriend puts up these ads entitled, naturally "Desperately Seeking Susan"....when spying on a meeting place with the eponymous "Susan", she accidentally bumps her head, causing amnesia, and from that point on, until almost the end of the movie, doesn't know who she is, and is mistaken for Susan.....
Madonna, of course, the "real" Susan, is a cunning drifter that bends and manipulates people, has a rootless existence, but gets by on her appeal. Almost a con artist of sorts, she is the first one to figure just what is going on while everyone else is utterly confused.
Aiden Quinn, back in his hunk days, falls for the memory challenged Rosanna, thinking SHE is the "real" Susan: sound confusing? Well, it is , in a way, and again, like I said , dreamlike, and at times, BAD dreams! Anyway, Quinn and Arquette have instant chemistry and shows her some real loving that her clueless Husband, played by Marc Blum, never could!
This was way before Madonna ruined her face and body, and she was quite the cute, however, make no mistake about it, Rosanna Arquette was beyond adorable in this movie, and as much as they dressed them similar, She was on another level of beauty.
It all makes for a madcap fun time, as another veteran bad guy actor, Will Patton , is after whoever the real Susan is, as there was a mix up and she is walking around with these priceless Egyptian earrings, totally oblivious to their value.....
it all comes together in a wild slapstick style end scene, and Rosanna, with her memory now back, realizes that she could never go back to the boring and pointless life she had with her useless husband.....
a great taste of the 80s, and a fun ride, go along with it, and just enjoy the silliness.....
Okay....want to still watch this movie?? I suggest watching it when you have the flu....it will take your mind off your illness.
