    S.W.A.T.

    Corny as a bathtub full of cornflakes, "S.W.A.T" is thoroughly dumb and cliche but also thoroughly entertaining. This is the last script credit for David Ayer before he established himself as a director, and the film feels very much in line with other Ayer fare like the first "Fast and the Furious" and the much worse "Sabotage" which Ayer would later direct.

    Examples:

    -Madonna's acting coach quit just before production began, claiming that "she thinks she knows everything". (Believable and hilarious)

    -Madonna had five personal assistants for this film, including her own hairstylist, make-up artist and personal trainer. (Easily believable as well)

    -Two of Madonna's more infamous scenes (one involving dripping candles, the other requiring her to masturbate) were improvised.…
