Pop singer Madonna's film career has been marked by a series of hits and misses, with her first major role in Desperately Seeking Susan (1985) combining her already successful pop image into a successful comedy. However, her follow-up film, Shanghai Surprise (1986), alongside then-husband Sean Penn flopped. She struggled to establish herself as a serious actress in the late 1980s and early 1990s, producing turns in Dick Tracey (1990) and Body of Evidence (1992) to mixed reviews. Despite receiving some praise for a role in ensemble comedy drama A League of Their Own in 1992, Madonna's pop career continued to greatly overshadow her acting performances. This changed slightly in 1996 with a starring turn in musical adaptation Evita, but has since been followed with generally unfavourable reviews. Her performance in husband Guy Ritchie's 2002 film Swept Away was widely criticized, as was the film, and she has recently limited herself to television guest starring appearances, although she has recently lent her voice to Luc Besson's animated film Arthur and the Mimmoys.
