Shanghai Surprise

Shanghai Surprise (1986) This film takes place in China in the 1940’s. Sean Penn, plays a bad tie-wearing, bearded bounty hunter who is looking for a way to get out of the country. He encounters a missionary nurse (yes, you read that right) played by Madonna, who is trying to get opium to help her patients. They set out on an adventure through the streets of Shanghai to find the drugs and steal them from a drug gang. This movie was so bad that, even though Madonna recorded several songs with ex-Beatle George Harrison, the CD was never released. I think the only reason this film was made was so Penn and Madonna, the real life, newly married couple, could go on a Honeymoon in China. - See more at: …
