All these years later I'm still kinda stunned that someone let PRINCE direct his own movie.

Ss flat and uninteresting as a newsreel from the 1930s about vacationing in the south of France.

Prince should stick to what he calls singing, because he can't act.

For all those out there who can't get enough of Prince, Under the Cherry Moon may be just the antidote.

Shot in black-and-white in an attempt to evoke the sophisticated burr of '40s films, its intent is hamstrung by over-familiar gags, though the script comes more to life when Prince and Benton lapse into black street talk.

The whole film plays exactly for what it is, one long essay in ego massaging.

For a preposterous vanity project and notorious cinematic turkey, Under The Cherry Moon is actually rather charming, rakish and amusing.
