Co-sign. Under the Cherry Moon. An underestimated film. My mother grew up in the b/w era of films, and she has always said it is her favorite, even though she is a huge fan of everything Prince.

Under the Cherry Moon. I love his funny side. I feel like Christopher Tracy is more similar to the REAL Prince than the Kid in PR.

Graffiti Bridge, and I'm not even kidding.

✿Prince and lawsuits. Still a better love-story than Twilight. ✿

They're all brilliant and silly and funky and gorgeous and fluff and life and wonder...But, what I actually came here to say is:

Is it just me - speaking of films and Prince - would Ben Stiller make a wonderful Prince in a bio-pic?

Think about the scene in Dodgeball where he offers the bribe to thingy Vaughn's character - he looks very, very Paisley...love to put the picture here but I still completely don't know how to copy pictures into this site...I'm so old.

Just saying...and I think he would be able to be infuriatingly Prince like in his performance.

Words are like shoes...
Try my shoes on...

Purple Rain. Well made, decent acting considering a lot of the actors aren't actors and a great soundtrack. Definitely Prince's best movie. A solid 4 out of 5.

Under the Cherry Moon is not as bad as most people would say it is but it's still a long way from actually being a good movie. If Prince wasn't in it, would anyone here even care about it? 2 out of 5.

Graffiti Bridge. Awful movie. Just awful. Nonsense story, cheap looking sets and dreadful performances from everyone not named Morris Day. Brilliant soundtrack but taken as a movie, it's a colossal failure. 1 out of 5.

If we're also including Sign O The Times, then we'd have to judge it on different criteria what with it being a concert movie. Technically it is the best of Prince's movies but I wouldn't include it when talking about movies starring Prince because it is just a concert movie.

So Purple Rain is my choice for best Prince movie.
