Guy Ritchie has admitted that his latest film starring wife Madonna is widely regarded as a flop.
He says Swept Away will go straight to video in the UK because American critics have "kicked the sh**" out of them.
But the director says he still believes it's a good film and its bad reviews have left him shaking his head.
His outburst came as he addressed University students at the Oxford Union, reports The Sun.
Guy said: "It won't be released here because it's s***.
"The idea was that the wife and I would make some sassy little art movie, but we got the s*** kicked out of us.
"It broke records in America. It must be the first film to make front page news with a review. I think 21 papers in America ran a story on how appalling it was.
"We had the absolute faeces kicked out of us. But I've got to say, I still think it's a good film. I'm left shaking my head - make up your own minds about it."
