Preview audiences are usually bundles of goodwill and joy, very appreciative at the prospect of seeing a movie in advance -- and for free, besides. I've heard preview audiences applaud at the conclusion of some of the most abominable garbage.
So here's a clue as to the quality of Guy Ritichie's "Swept Away." The preview audience, which was presumably comprised die-hard Madonna fans, laughed at Madonna's heartfelt emoting. Laughed!
Indeed, "Swept Away" is a dead-dog turkey of a movie, and everyone knows it. It's not the first for Madonna, who also has the duds "Shanghai Surprise" (1986), "Body of Evidence" (1993) and "The Next Best Thing" (2000) lining the very bottom of her barrel.
