ALTHOUGH TECHNICALLY, SINCE IT WAS BRIEFLY RELEASED LAST FALL to QUALIFY for CONSIDERATION by OTHER AWARD ENTITIES, W.E. 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. (LINK) ARE ABOUT 80% NEGATIVE (WHICH IS ACTUALLY PRETTY GOOD for a FILM with MADONNA's NAME on IT! -- R.T. LINK) and THAT "QUALIFYING ENGAGEMENT" LAST FALL HAS GARNERED the FILM ONE LONE OSCAR® NOMINATION (LINK) and ACTUALLY HELPED IT WIN a GOLDEN GLOB for BEST SONG (WHICH MADONNA SAID on the RED CARPET at the GLOBs WAS "DIVINELY INSPIRED" (YOU TUBE LINK). 

THE FILM ITSELF, HOWEVER, IS an OBVIOUS KNOCK-OFF of LAST YEAR's BEST PICTURE OSCAR® WINNER THE KING'S SPEECH (LINK) 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 (LINK) 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 VOTING RAZZIE® MEMBERS to SEE IT BEFORE WE NEED to MAKE ANY FINAL CALL on the MATTER...

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!"
