Storyline

Graffiti Bridge is the unofficial sequel to Purple Rain. In this movie, The Kid and Morris Day are still competitors and each runs a club of his own. They make a bet about who writes the best song and the Kid's club is on the line. But the Kid has become a brooding character who writes letters to his dead father and ponders spirituality. Under the Graffiti Bridge in the park, he meets Aura, an angel-like poet with whom he falls in love. Once again, Morris tries to steal his girl, and in the end, she dies in a tragic accident. But not in vain, she has given the Kid his edge back, and Morris gives in and lets him keep the club after hearing the moving ballad the Kid composed. Written by David Haglund

Trivia

Kim Basinger was Prince's second choice to star in the film for the role of Aura, hoping that her casting would lead to a box-office success (they were also dating at the time). However, Basinger and Prince broke up before production began and he scrambled to find a replacement. Sheena Easton, Mayte Garcia and Sheila E. were considered before Ingrid Chavez was eventually cast. See more »

A must for Prince fans --- and no one else
5 February 2000 | by (Louisville, TN) – See all my reviews

As vibrant, creative and joyfully tuneful as the soundtrack is, it's almost a violation of the laws of physics that the film itself is so unspeakably awful. Plodding, plotless, static, a terrible, terrible mistake. It's enough to make a man change his name to an unpronouncable symbol! But by all means, get that soundtrack.
