It's about the music; not the movie quality! RIP Prince. This film has only gotten better with age, it's a classic to me.

I miss Prince, too; however I think it needs to be said that whoever produced this film was an amateur. the staging, the camera angles, the self-aware acting, it's terrible. the purple rain angle could have been covered by a royal treatment of the epic song itself, visually.

What can I say...Prince is a musical genius! The story is a little all-over-the-place, but I get it. The music was the reason I finished the movie to the end. I don't remember much from watching it as a young adult, but it is a movie you should watch. If you watched the Dave Chappelle skit of Prince playing basketball, it'll be funny to hear some of those one-liners.

Purple Rain is a time capsule, and the performances at First Ave are phenomenal. The acting and dialogue are sometimes campy, but for me that just adds to the fun. The movie is rated R for sexuality, some nudity, language and some violent content.

Kind of interesting that Prince was bold enough to say to a studio that he wanted to star in his own movie. At the time the movie was made Prince wasn't famous yet. Purple Rain album & movie are what put him on the map.

I read in one of the Prince biographies that the studio originally wanted John Travolta to play the KID!!!

While the movie itself is pretty silly, the music is excellent.

Disappointed.

"This film has been modified from its original version. It has been formatted to fit your screen."

Only true if you have an old television.
