"A misogynist horror of a film" - Mark Kermode, BBC Radio 5live

Sir Guy Ritchie's third movie, after Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, starring his then-wife Madonna. It was nominated for 10 Razzie Awards, including one for Worst Actress for Madge. The one-two of this followed by Revolver threatened to absolutely sink Ritchie's career; he salvaged it by making RocknRolla ("worse than Rancid Aluminium" according to Mark Kermode, but close enough to his old form for Simon Mayo to enjoy it) and then making a surprising good couple of Sherlock Holmes movies.
