Griffin Dunne reprises his role as the crazed, overwrought straight man while Madonna lays on a thick New Yawk bimbette act in this frenetic and ridiculously re-worked After Hours-Arthur combination.

The Material Girl plays a just-out-of-jail back-talking petty thief who’s bent on avenging the thugs who made her take the rap for a murder she didn’t commit. Weak-kneed lawyer type Dunne is sent by his megabucks soon-to-be-father-in-law (John McMartin) to pick her up and make sure she’s on the next bus home. All this occurs on the eve of his wedding to McMartin’s ice princess daughter (Haviland Morris).

Madonna bamboozles Dunne into doing what she wants to do, turning him into a near nut case bashing up his future mother-in-law’s Corniche, buying stolen goods in Harlem, stealing right and left, and so on. Fortunately, Dunne’s playful personality eventually counter-balances Madonna’s shrillness, and their adventures together, while completely farfetched, finally become involving. What’s lacking is pure and simple good humor.
