Body of Evidence: Preposterous Erotic Thriller Starring Madonna

It’s hard to recall another winter in which so many silly studio movies were released, and in such rapid succession. I just hope that the first studio picture, Madonna’s Body of Evidence, which was going to make her a “legitimate actress” (instead of the egomaniacal performer that she is) is not an indication for the rest of the movie year.

A colleague of mine has labeled this preposterous sexual thriller “Basic Stink,” because of its attempt to both imitate and cash in on the success of “Basic Instinct.” Who could ever believe that Sharon Stone’s 1992 trashy but enjoyable movie would become a frame of reference
