ALTHOUGH TECHNICALLY, SINCE IT WAS BRIEFLY RELEASED LAST FALL to QUALIFY for CONSIDERATION by OTHER AWARD ENTITIES, http://www.razzies.com/forum/member-discussion-addl-info-on-madonnas-we_forum604.html -  IS NOT a 2012 RELEASE, WE JUST COULDN'T RESIST ANOTHER CHANCE to ENGAGE in ONE of OUR FAVORITE ACTIVITIES: "PICKING on MADONNA!" 

AND WE HARDLY SEEM to BE ALONE in OUR DISDAIN for THIS ONE: REVIEWS at R.T. ( http://www.razzies.com/forum/reviews-on-madonnas-we_topic5738.html - ) ARE ABOUT 80% NEGATIVE (WHICH IS ACTUALLY PRETTY GOOD for a FILM with MADONNA's NAME on IT! -- http://www.rottentomatoes.com/celebrity/madonna/ - ) and THAT "QUALIFYING ENGAGEMENT" LAST FALL HAS GARNERED the FILM ONE LONE OSCAR® NOMINATION ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1536048/awards - ) and ACTUALLY HELPED IT WIN a GOLDEN GLOB for BEST SONG (WHICH MADONNA SAID on the RED CARPET at the GLOBs WAS "DIVINELY INSPIRED" ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ol7l7b5JmWw - ). 

THE FILM ITSELF, HOWEVER, IS an OBVIOUS KNOCK-OFF of LAST YEAR's BEST PICTURE OSCAR® WINNER THE KING'S SPEECH ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1504320/awards - ) ALBEIT THIS TIME FOCUSED on the ROYAL OFFSPRING WHOSE ROMANCE w/a DIVORCED WOMAN FORCED the STUTTERING PRINCE to TAKE the THRONE in the PREVIOUS FILM. 

A BID for MADONNA to be "TAKEN SERIOUSLY" AS a FILM-MAKER, W.E. WAS SHOWN at the VENICE FILM FESTIVAL...to GENERALLY UNFAVORABLE OPINION and a NUMBER of WALK-OUTS. 

NOW THAT IT's PLAYING in WIDER RELEASE, WE HAVE a QUANDRY ON OUR HANDS: DO WE ALLOW MADONNA an EXCEPTION to OUR LONG-HELD/OSCAR-INSPIRED RULES and SAY THIS FILM IS ELIGIBLE as a 2012 RELEASE, OR DO WE STICK to OUR RULES and LET OUR AWL-TIME FEMALE CHAM-PEEEN ( http://www.razzies.com/forum/alltime-razzie-champeens-list_topic5372.html - ) GET OFF on a TECHNICALITY?  SINCE IT'S BEING RELEASED THIS EARLY in the YEAR, IT SHOULD BE AVAILABLE on VIDEO in PLENTY of TIME for ALL INTERESTED  http://razzies.com/join.asp - http://razzies.com/join.asp - ® http://razzies.com/join.asp - to SEE IT BEFORE WE NEED to MAKE ANY FINAL CALL on the MATTER... 

TO JOIN OUR DISCUSSION of the FILM (and the RULES DEBATE) http://www.razzies.com/forum/member-discussion-addl-info-on-madonnas-we_forum604.html - ...  



HER: "Wait a minute, Wally -- This looks suspiciously 
like the beach from SWEPT AWAY..."   

HIM: "Not to worry, Wallace, no one but RAZZIE® Members -- 
and Madonna's immediate family -- even saw SWEPT AWAY!"
