Let's face it. Although Madonna has been in a few movies, there was only one she was any good in. And it involved a lot of singing, so there might be something in that...

Some time ago, a girl grew up in a village before making her way to town and sleeping her way to the top. And then took command of the country and waged war on everyone else, and brought some shoes. Or something. It's not like Andrew Lloyd Webber got the details exactly right, so why should I?

But who cares, this is about the singing! Madonna is great. Antonio Banderas is great! All the songs are great! Well... until after "Waltz for Eva and Che". Movie kinda dragged down from there on out as we spend around twenty minutes or so of Eva slowly dying.

Still, this is one of the few movies that I went to see twice at the theatres. This is a gorgeously shot movie and should be seen on the big screen.

I was thinking about what song to include... so many good ones! Some rather emotional, some funny... and I decided on this one, in which Maddy doesn't even sing:

It starts funny, but by the end...
