Huge waste of money!

"If you're a completist collector of Madonna memorabilia, or if you're someone that knows absolutely nothing about Madonna and would like some of the basics I suppose this might be an okay purchase. For everyone else, avoid this like the plague!
For starters, they lied about the running time. It is NOT 36 minutes. It is 23 minutes long! That's it. And about two minutes of that cover the opening and ending credits.
The "documentary" is redundant and rehashes common sense and everything we've heard about Madonna over a million times. No interesting footage, unless you consider a small clip of Madonna from American Bandstand saying she wants to "rule the world", which I've personally seen many times elsewhere.
The most annoying thing of all are the three young people that are referred to as "Madonna fans" that give their dopey (and often inaccurate) views of Madonna. It's amusing to hear the male Madonna "fan" talking about his reaction to Madonna's appearance in the 1984 MTV Awards show when he had to have been in diapers at the time, or one of the two female fans mentioning how Madonna has been married 3 times (wouldn't even a casual fan know she was married twice?) and that has given her hope for the future (what? LOL). I at least got a laugh from those idiots despite how embarrassing it was to hear them talk out of their behinds.
Buyer beware. I am hit big time with remorse for this purchase.
Bottom line: Ten dollars for a crappy twenty-minute documentary."
