What took her so long?

Madonna is shelving her acting aspirations and turning her back ("begrudgingly," as this article states) on what's left of her movie career:
[Madonna] says, "I hate to admit it, but I've decided to give that up.

"How can any film survive if everyone says it's going to be a flop from the very day the project is even conceived?
Interesting that someone like Madonna --- one who has made a successful career by following her own intuition, pushing the envelope, and continuously reinventing herself --- is now playing the victim and blaming the Hollywood Machine for her films' lack of success.

C'mon, Madonna. If most of your movies are do not come highly regarded by critics or by box office stats, maybe it's not ... you know ... the movie itself, but ...

... your acting. Sorry, boo.

I love Madonna's musical career, but to be honest, she should stick to what she does best. Singing and dancing and wearing cone bras.

Sorry I couldn't help it. Madonna, I thought you left the acting game before you started!

Lest we not forget she won a Golden Globe for Evita you nay sayers...but thankfully we can all sleep soundly at night that there will be no "Body of Evidence 2" (Sharon Stone take note of when to say when...)
