We rate Madonna in ''Who's That Girl''

Madonna, Who's That Girl
Who's That Girl: Everett Collection

We rate Madonna in ”Who’s That Girl”

MADONNA PLAYS Nikki Finn, ex-con and screwball heroine who turns buttoned-down lawyer Griffin Dunne’s life upside down (think Melanie Griffith in ”Something Wild”)

FRIENDS/LOVERS IN THE CAST None, except maybe fellow early-’80s downtown music figure Coati Mundi

DOES SHE SING? She has four songs on the soundtrack, including the title tune.

MEMORABLE MOMENT The mismatched couple finds a lush jungle inside John Mills’ Manhattan apartment.

REDEEMING CAMP VALUE Everyone finds love at the end, even the two male detectives.

WE SAY Of all the Material Girl’s movies, this one is the most deserving of reassessment. It’s funnier than you’d expect.
