Trivia

Kristin Scott Thomas has since been disdainful of the film. In an interview in 2005, she said that "When I left drama school...I was more afraid of not working at all than of the actual material I was being offered. And if you look at my very first film, you'll understand exactly what I mean." See more »

Sorry...this movie sucks...unless you're a Prince groupie
21 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a fan of Prince. Don't get me wrong. But this movie was as bad as most people thought it to be. If you notice in most of the positive reviews here, the author will often say something like, "Of all of Prince's movies..." Look, if you have seen more than 2 of Prince's movies, you are a Prince groupie and thus can not be counted on to give an unbiased review. Personally, after this train wreck, I refrained from seeing any more of his theatrical releases and stuck to just enjoying his music. So, if Graffiti Bridge was a good movie...I can't tell you. I loved Purple Rain, though. But sometimes you catch lightning in a bottle and you just can't reproduce it. Can't blame him for trying though.
