Madonna plays Amber Leighton, a beautiful, spoiled, foul-mouthed, and arrogant rich woman. Nothing makes her happy, including her wealthy but passive husband, Tony (Creator/BruceGreenwood), a pharmaceutical kingpin. When Tony takes her on a private cruise from Greece to Italy with two other couples, Amber is unimpressed by this impromptu no-frills vacation and takes out her anger on the ship's first mate, Giuseppe Esposito (Adriano Giannini). When a storm leaves the two shipwrecked on a deserted island, however, the tables suddenly turn, with Giuseppe gaining the upper hand, followed by the two falling in love.

!!This film contains examples of:
* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Amber and Giuseppe escape the island, but she returns to her husband, and so thee affair they started at the island ends.]]
* {{Bowdlerise}}: The original 1974 film on which this film is based had the characters that were the basis for Amber and Giuseppe be a staunch Capitalist and Communist, respectively, in line with the film's director Lina Wertmüller's political commentary on her films. (There's a scene in that film in which Raffaella, that film's equivalent of Amber, incessantly talks about the virtues of her class and the worthlessness of the political left.) This is stated to be the reason why they had such a violently antagonistic relationship before they fall in love. In this film, all political commentary is cut out, and instead it's implied that the reason for Amber's mistreatment of Giuseppe and vice versa is simply because she's a huge {{Jerkass}} (before Giuseppe too starts mistreating her in retaliation once they're on the island).
* DefrostingIceQueen: Amber is condescending and dismissive of Giuseppe until they fall in love, though Giuseppe has rather brutish methods of chipping the ice.
* DesertedIsland: Amber and Giuseppe become shipwrecked on a deserted island.
* DidNotGetTheGirl: [[spoiler: In the end, Amber goes back to her husband after she and Giuseppe are rescued from the island.]]
* TheDogBitesBack: After getting mistreated by Amber, Giuseppe turns the tables on her when, in the deserted island, her social status is null.
* {{Robinsonade}}: Amber and Giuseppe become shipwrecked on a deserted island far away from civilization and are forced to live off the land in order to survive.
* SlapSlapKiss: Pretty much Amber and Giuseppe's relationship in a nutshell: She berates him, he berates her in retaliation once they're in the deserted island, then they fall in love.
