Madonna definitely thought of herself as a movie star. She looked like a movie star. She dated movie stars, and her first husband was a movie star. For a hot minute in the late ’80s, Madonna had enough juice to get a movie greenlit. But Madonna never truly became a movie star herself. Her acting career never quite became anything other than a part-time hobby. Top 10 Sales in Europe" (PDF). Music & Media. Vol.9, no.33. August 15, 1992. p.18.

Playground” has none of the dreamy sweep of older Madonna ballads like “ Crazy For You” and “ Live To Tell.” Instead, it sounds cheap and chintzy. The strings are maudlin. The piano is canned. The central hook is strong enough that they maybe could’ve turned it into a club ballad like “Rain,” but that wasn’t the assignment. Instead, “Playground” sounds like Madonna in an adult-contempo stupor.

Does anyone associate “This Used To Be My Playground” with A League Of Their Own? I don’t. I barely remember that the song and the movie had any relationship. A League Of Their Own is an antic gee-whiz period piece about triumphant women in a different time, while “This Used To Be My Playground” is a morose torch ballad. Also, nobody ever refers to a baseball field as a “playground.” There’s some sad nostalgia at the end of League, so maybe “Playground” didn’t make a terribly incongruous end-credits song. But I just don’t associate that song with Tom Hanks yelling that there’s no crying in baseball. They exist completely independently of each other in my mind. There’s no overlap. Maybe that’s me. This burbling tension around gender roles during WWII, when women were entering the work force in large numbers for the first time, is really the film’s primary subject. The AAGPBL players are at one point likened to Rosie the Riveter to drive the point home. They’re are at once sexualized and infantilized, trotted out in uniforms with short skirts for gawking male spectators while off the field they are lorded over by a chaperone to ensure they maintain their image of moral purity. Marshall treats these issues comically, with the same ultra-light touch she brings to the rest of the film, and while one could reasonably object that turning the subjugation of women into a crowd-pleasing comedy reflects a rather superficial approach to the subject, it can also be easy to underestimate the difficulty of pulling it off. a b "American single certifications – Madonna – This Used to Be My Playground".
