Shanghai Surprise

Shanghai Surprise is a 1986 British comedy movie directed by Jim Goddard in which Madonna starred alongside her then-husband Sean Penn.

The screenplay was adapted from Tony Kenrick’s 1978 novel Faraday’s Flowers. The story revolves around Glendon Wasey, a fortune hunter and Gloria Tatlock, a missionary nurse who’d like to try opium to ease the sufferings of her patients.

Shanghai Surprise didn’t go very well with the global audience nor with the critics, as it received mostly poor reviews.
