Who’s That Girl

A year after appearing in the box-office sleeper Shanghai Surprise, pop superstar Madonna starred in the screwball comedy Who’s That Girl. She plays Nikki Finn, who is being released from prison after serving a four-year sentence for a murder she didn’t commit. Meanwhile, wealthy lawyer Loudon is about to get married that afternoon to the snobby Wendy, the daughter of Simon Worthington. Worthington does not approve of the wedding and he wants Nikki out of town as soon as possible, so he sends Loudon to collect Nikki and take her to the bus station. Instead, the flamboyant Nikki seeks her revenge while trying to find out what happened to her friend Johnny, which causes Loudon a lot of trouble. Naturally, wild action ensues — some of it involving an escaped Cougar belonging to Loudon’s boss, the millionaire animal collector Montgomery Bell — and Loudon having to choose between the prim Wendy and the unpredictable Nikki.
