Madonna plays Nikki Finn, a street-wise ex-con with white hair and a good left hook.
Nikki meets up with Louden Trott (played by Griffin Dunne) who was assigned to pick her up after she was released from prison and take her to the bus station. Mr. Worthington (Bibi Besch) doesn't want Nikki anywhere near his daughter Wendy's (Haviland Morris) wedding to Louden because he was the one who set her up to go to the big house!
Nikki convinces Louden to stop at the mall because after all her mom thinks she's been shopping for the past four years so it wouldn't be very nice to come home empty handed. But Nikki has ulterior motives because she wants to "cleah my name" and prove to everyone that she was set up.
It's now a race to see if Nikki can con Louden into helping her. Along the way they fall in love. But Louden is an uptight boy from Scarsdale who has reservations about a kooky girl from Philly.
But, Nikki gets to Louden's wedding and stops the preacher in mid-sentence so that she can tell everyone that Mr. Worthington set her up. She also informs everyone that Louden is really in love with her, and this time he has the backbone to fight for her. Wendy doesn't mind though, she has her hot UPS driver to keep her company.
Louden and Nikki take their bus trip together back to Philly as Madonna's third '87 hit plays, "Who's That Girl."
Madonna's acting was wonderful, and she sounded so funny and looked very sexy. But the poor thing was crucified for this picture, unrightfully so.
So it may not have been nominated for a Golden Globe or Oscar, but if you LOVE Madonna and enjoy a simple comedy, you can't beat Who's That Girl!
This is my favorite Madonna movie, hands down. It actually has a funny, yet clever plot, great soundtrack and some hilarious one-liners that you won't soon forget. The thing about this movie is you can watch it over and over and it never gets old. Some of my favorite one liners are: "Lowden Clear - well he hasn't exactly been Valentino in the sack lately"; "No one shushes Nikki Fin"; "Knock Knock, Who's There? Boo. Boo Hoo? Don't cry, we'll take the apartment!"; "Murray the Tiger! If there's only four left, it's not like you're gonna have another Murray"; and many others.
Let the countdown begin!
Ex comvict Nikki Finn (Madonna) who served time for a crime she didn't commit is just set free. An attroney named Louden (Griffin Dunne) is asked by his fiance's father to transport Nikki to the bus station. But, of course, there are hundreds of complications along the way, including a 160 couger named "Murray". Later, Nikki wants to get into a safe deposit to clear her name. As all of the hilarious mishaps happen, Louden finds himself falling in love with Nikki.
Overall Grade: A (10++)
