I never knew that Ed Wood Jr had used the non-de-plume Prince. Amazing!
4 September 2004 | by hexxedagainSee all my reviews

I've just watched this movie for the first time 10 minutes ago and felt compelled to comment. Let me start by clarifying the following:

1 I have the misfortune to have lived through that decade of style disasters known as the 80's.

2 I bought one or two prince albums; Purple Rain, Batman, etc

3 I thought the previous movie, Purple rain was OK, if a tad extravagant

However, I've read other reviewers on this site state that this is a "classic"

If it is a "classic", it is only in the same way that "Plan 9 from Outer Space" now shares a similar classification.

Am I saying that this is a turkey? Well, lets put it this way, I'm thinking of having it stuffed for Thanks Giving.

Someone please pass me the Cranberry Sauce.

Oddly enough Cranberries are a form of Berry too. Did Princes' subconscious know something he didn't?
