Kristian and Trevor take on the challenge of Madonna’s 2002 disastrous disaster flick Swept Away. A film panned by the critics and by director Guy Ritchie, at the premiere, while he was still married to Madonna!
Is this movie helped by the fact one of the main characters is played by the son of the actor who played the same role in the popular Italian original? Can Madonna show any sort of range? Can a castaway movie include a musical number? Is this movie in anyway redeemable?
Listen on and find out!
