Madonna is on trial for murder. She loved a man to death. Her body is a lethal weapon. She used her basic instinct a little too much. Is she really as evil as the prosecution says she is? Did she purposely seek out an old man with a bad heart just so she could rock his world and send him to heaven? Does anybody care how this trial ends up? Of course no one cares! Bring on the Madonna sex!

I have good news for you. Madonna shows us what she's got in three or four scenes of intense Dafoe lovemaking. We get hot wax, handcuffs, car hood sex and various other forms of action. I was not disappointed. As a courtroom drama, "Body of Evidence" is ridiculous. Surprise witnesses, lies, accusations and other things no one cares about. Dafoe needed to blow off some steam between courtroom appearances and needed to closely consult Madonna's body of evidence. As an excuse to stare at Madonna in all her glory, "Body of Evidence" is a fine film. If you're looking for anything else, you've got the wrong movie.

SCORE: 2 out of 4 because Madonna's body is Exhibit A+
