'Who's That Girl' is so eager to please, it ends up being a very hard movie to hate. Sure, it's formulaic and overcooked, but it's ultimately a pretty typical '80s comedy, no better or worse than average.

Really, Madonna is the draw of this film. If you don't see what the big deal is with this pop superstar, then stay clear of this movie.

There is nothing wrong with Who's That Girl that a different script, a different director, and a different star wouldn't have fixed.

Juan Carlos Coto

Before Foley loses the film to insipid humor and excessive physical comedy -- in a rambunctious wedding fiasco at the film's close -- he is nevertheless successful at creating minor characters that are undeniably appealing.

The storyline is simply bizarre, but somehow all the crazy elements fall together in one appealing madcap frolic in this 1987 Madonna vehicle that ends up being more than the sum of its parts.

This patently painful flick marks the first and last time that director James Foley would tackle comedy. And the reasons why are right up there on the screen.

Zany 80s trash just barely saved by a cool cougar.

Horrible. Madonna is out acted by a cat and acts like a 10 year old child with a learning disability all through this.

This movie is fun but much too silly at times too. Madonna is okay, but an actress could have done a better job with this movie, I think. Anyway, this movie… More

It is just a crappy movie. Don't watch it. I give the movie a half a star, and the two cougars their own half-star.

Madonna is naughty and fun as Nikki Finn. She's loveable, but a homewrecker as well. Often, her squealy voice will annoy. She's good to have around if… More

OK as a daytime family friendly movie. Nothing extraordinary about it. Madonna did a okay job. The story is about what you could expect out of it.
