Missionary Accomplished

Is this what they call Chinese water torture?

Wow, this'll make you feel old. The Madonna-Sean Penn bomb "Shanghai Surprise" opened 25 years ago today. I remember going to see the film the day it opened and wanting to like it so much. (Oh, boy.) My pal Nathaniel at Film Experience blog revisits the film that effectively ended Madonna's acting career before it had really begun HERE.

I will not mock you about actually seeing this in the theater. Outside of Borderline (danced to that tune while I was a Sears stockboy), there's not much of her stuff that works for me.
