This week's best bad review

Mr. Madge, Guy Ritchie, made the brilliant "Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels" and the almost-brilliant "Snatch." But life with Madonna may be too happy for him to keep that edge. According to Fleet Street, "The critics have been scathing - some claiming it [new Guy Richie film, Revolver] is even worse than Swept Away, which starred Madonna and went straight to video in the UK.

'After Revolver, Swept Away now looks like Citizen Kane," the Guardian said. "Words can not easily express how emphatically this film withholds the pleasures of film going.'"
